Kofi to the non-rescue

United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan was in Sudan to promise (once again) the UN's aid and assistance to end the humanitarian disaster there. Reuters reports that former rebel leader John Garang complained that the promises of Olso have not been followed through: "There are people actually who have starved to death and the U.N. food pipeline is virtually empty. So we are asking the secretary-general to please do something about it," to which Annan responded, "The U.N. team is here and we will redouble our efforts..." Great. Under either commonly understood definition of the word, a redoubling of a virtually empty UN food pipeline still means a virtually empty pipeline.
