U.N. Treachery Watch

Theme: "The U.N. -- Friend of Foe?"

If that were the question, it would be readily answered from a news item today.

The title, "U.N. Official Urges Political Independence", speaks volumes.

File that under, "things that make you go 'Huh?'"

The Bizarro-World weltanschauung of this article is that somehow, the U.N. is just a stooge of the evil United States:

The United Nations should find ways to demonstrate political independence, regain the neutrality it lost after the Sept. 11 attacks and better communicate with the world's 1 billion Muslims, a top U.N. official said Monday.

The conclusion that better communication with Muslims is needed is drawn in insane blame-the-victim thinking from the bombing of the U.N. mission to Iraq by terrorists that killed 23 people:

Malloch Brown told The Associated Press the bombing was "indicative of the fact that in this highly polarized post-Sept. 11 world, this sort of 'with us or against us' mentality which has infected both sides has dramatically reduced the space for a neutral third force like the U.N. to operate."

See? It's that George Bush and his polarizing mentality of, you know, actually fighting back, that is causing problems for the U.N. to be a "third force". As if that were its mission.

Brown goes on to assert the terrorist murderers are to be treated as people with a reasonable point of view that has to be considered, going so far as claim the bombing

"forced the world body to question whether it had compromised its neutrality."

Got that? The U.N. might have compromised its neutrality -- as if neutrality between a post-dictator Iraq and civilization-destroying terrorists were a Virtue! -- by simply trying to be a part of the rebuilding process!

The mind-boggling clincher is here:

Malloch Brown said the lessons learned from the Iraq experience go beyond Baghdad. For example, more than 100,000 people demonstrated in Sudan earlier this month against a Security Council resolution giving Sudan 30 days to stop Arab militia violence in the western region of Darfur — where more than 30,000 people have been killed — or face economic and diplomatic penalties. "This polarization is affecting us everywhere," Malloch Brown said.

So the demonstrators get equal value with the U.N. against the innocents being murdered? What, it's just a numbers game, that 100,000 opposed to U.N. sanctions trump a mere 30,000 deaths, like it's some kind of populist vote? Are we to believe the nasty Security Council is the real problem, being a divisive, polarizing force?

He goes on to complain,

"...what ultimately is a highly localized set of confrontations between groups embracing violence, confronting international actors in their own country, has been turned into this single alleged global struggle between something called al-Qaida and the coalition," he said.

Something called al-Qaida? Alleged global struggle? The sneering mockery just drips from that quote, to imply it's all a loony adventure cooked up in Texas.

Just whose side is the U.N. on? This talk of "neutrality" is really code for "opposition to the United States", as apparently any action disliked by murderous terrorists is "divisive" and hence non-neutral.

Perhaps it should be pointed out the dateline of this piece of propaganda is "Beirut", and the author is Donna Abu-Nasr.

What a useless person this Malloch Brown is. What a useless organization the U.N. is. It is an impediment to the spread of freedom and a friend of the dictator. It should be left to wither on the vine.

Not a penny more to the "United Nations", united in nothing but opposition to the United States!

A conglomerate of nations is indeed a good idea. But not in the manner we see today. The United Nations has been hijacked, and therefore should be left to it's own devises. With the United States no longer a participant.
With our leaving it will indeed wither and die on the vine.
In the meantime a new organization could be developed with the mandatory obligation of being a government that is democratically run. This would leave all of the oppressed countries out in the cold.
Another effective means of dealing with them is to cut off all foreign aid to them.

Let the seething and whinging begin!
