UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The world is no safer than it was three years ago, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said on Wednesday, countering President Bush's claims he had made the world a safer place.

Annan, at a news conference, also criticized a Bush administration decision to withhold $34 million from the U.N. Population Fund, saying the agency was saving women's lives. Annan's remarks could renew strains on ties between the United States and United Nations, which -- while devastated by Bush's inability to win U.N. backing for the U.S.-led war on Iraq -- had improved following U.N. help in setting up a new government in Baghdad in time for the U.S. occupation to end.

"No, I cannot say the world is safer today than it was two, three years ago," the U.N. leader said.
What Dubyanator says:
"For a while we were marching to war. Now we're marching to peace. ... America is a safer place. Four more years wars and America will be safer and the world will be more peaceful," Bush said.
Uh Huh, yeaah thats the ticket.
"The enemy declared war on us," Bush told a re-election rally in Cedar Rapids. "Nobody wants to be the war president. I want to be the peace president... The next four years wars will be peaceful years. wars" Bush used the words "peace" or "peaceful" a total of 20 times.
Just keep saying it over and over "there's no place like home", "there's no place like home", "there's no place like home", and it will be so.
