This Yapping Little Cur Is Getting A Bit Tiresome,
Kofi Annan warned that the Security Council might take action if Syria fails to pull out by April.
Speaking to Dubai-based al-Arabiya channel, Mr Annan said he will report to the Security Council in April on how far Syria has complied with the resolution.But...
"If it's partial withdrawal, I will have to report. If it's total withdrawal, I will have to report," Mr Annan is quoted as saying in the interview to be broadcast on Friday.
"But of course, if they [Syria] do not perform, the council may wish to take additional measures," he adds.
Mr Annan's spokesman Fred Eckhard later said Mr Annan's comments should not be interpreted as having set a deadline or expressing support for sanctions if Syrian troops remain in Lebanon beyond April.I'm sure that the Syrians are taking no notice of the U. S. and our Coalition partners in Iraq and are paying very close attention to the UN. I'm really very sure.
