آقای عنان در مورد عراقيها گفت که پيش از حمله آمريکا به عراق، ديکتاتوری ظالم بر آنها حکومت می کرده اما مردم می توانستند از خانه بيرون بروند و بچه هايشان می توانستند به مدرسه بروند بدون اينکه پدر و مادرشان نگران اين باشند که آيا باز هم فرزندشان را خواهند ديد يا نه.(BBC)
To the kind attention of those Canadians who think that their country is involved in a WAR!! Yes your teained troops are in Afghanistan to continue the war that united states started. War is not when your trained troops go to the other countries miles away from HOME... War is when your children cannot go out without the fear and when you came home and see the windows are open and there is no glass on them.
I am pretty suprised when I read or hear that reason for those of you who are against to being in Afghanistan is just you think you shouldn't start the war because you don't have the chance to win!! Hey! what is the matter with you? You think you can just go to other peoples home and kick them out because you have the chance to win? I am so sorry for those of you who think that way.
The violence in Iraq is worse than civil war, according to United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan. (BBC)
