Put your marching boots where your mouth is.

Kofi Annan says that the UN won`t back down, and is more determined than ever to help the people of Iraq. Good! They need all the help they can get.

The Security Council says the same. That`s nice. But will they actually put troops on the ground to defend the UN mission? Or will they hand that job over to an already-strained US occupation force, saying ``You started this, it`s your problem?``

We`ll see. Personally, I think if the UN wants to help at all, it should either commit fully to Iraqi reconstruction or admit its hypocrisy.
