Just Kofi, thanks.
Kofi Annan has put a big, blue ribbon over the globe, reminding everyone and anyone that a crime of such evil will not be brushed aside.
Among the people who stayed up late to hear the report of the UN fact-finding mission into Hariri's assassination, I can tell you that there were at least 3 people with very different reactions:
1) Vindication; for the international community has just learned of the systematic negligence and inaptitude that has been blatantly obvious to him all along!
2) Relief; for the report 'only' charged him with systematic negligence and inaptitude. Hooray!
3) Disappointment; for the report did not accuse whom he believes is so obviously behind the assassination!
Which one of the above do you feel represents you?
On second thought, never mind.
The coming step is inevitable.
Those who oppose or object to an international investigating team now might as well stand up and confess...
So what does this mean in the coming few days? I suppose it will be felt most by those who live in and around the UN ESCWA HQ in downtown Beirut. The security measures already going up around that big block are frightful and they will certainly only increase if the UN investigation team chooses that site as their workbase. Sigh...
