[quote]UN Chief Targeted in Iraq, Orders Massive Retaliation

(2007-03-23) — United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, who narrowly escaped death yesterday when terrorists detonated a rocket within 50 meters of him during a news conference, today ordered U.N. armed forces to mass outside of Baghdad for an all-out assault on the city, adding “this time it’s personal.”
“I used to think the so-called insurgents just wanted an end to the U.S. occupation of their country, so they could live in peace,” said Mr. Ban. “But they nearly killed the world’s leading peace emissary. These people are fanatics bent on the destruction of modern civilization so they can rule the world with their evil ideology.”
Mr. Ban said blue-helmeted U.N. troops would team up with Iraqi army and police units as well as U.S. forces “to scrub this town with a Brillo pad” and achieve “peace through superior fire power.”
“We’ll fight them in the streets,” he said. “We’ll fight them on the rooftops. We’ll fight them in the falafel shops. We will never, never, never, never, never, never, never give up.”
A unnamed U.N. spokesman warned al Qaeda, Iran, Syria and the various terror militias against underestimating the U.N. chief’s resolve.
“When he wants something to go away,” the source said, “it goes away. They don’t call him Mr. Ban for nothing.”
However, he added that the assault on the city may be delayed for some months to give time for U.N. troops to receive offensive weapons, and training in how to use them.
