United Nations Exposed … From the INSIDE!

February 10th, 2017 · 29 Comments

It was created of a noble dream: a world-wide organization dedicated to “to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind”.

And I really do believe the 51 founding states of the United Nations … or at least most of them …  believed in the declaration contained in the charter they signed “to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small.”

Today, the UN has 193 member countries … but rather than expanding the commitment to the originals ideas and ideals … the UN is now more often than not a failure:  a hugely expensive yet ineffective propaganda forum; where national, ethnic and religious loyalties supplant even basic justice; where a blind eye is turned and no hand is raised to stop brutal barbaric laws and practices imposed in UN states;  where torture by UN member nations and the deaths of millions of civilians … at the hands and under the bombs supllied by and/or dropped by UN member states ….. is allowed to go on … unabated.

Readers of this blog will know how I have written  “J’accuse” condemnations of the UN in the past.

I had sadly come to believe: the General Assembly is now a useless organization where corrupt dictatorships and prostituted states hold sway;  the UN “Human Rights” organization is little more than a racist, anti-Israel propaganda disgrace; the UN Refugee Agency has actively pushed the Islamification of Europe and is a protector Hamas (remember all those rockets found in a UN Gaza school …oops!) ; and even the Security Council  … with too rare exceptions … has abandoned/ignored its mandate and lost its way, its ethics and even much of its power .

Now a former UN staffer, scientist and environmentalist, who saw how the UN works from the INSIDE, has publicly denounced the  corruption, racism and sexism she says she personally witnessed while working at the UN Secretariat in New York and for the UN University,  headquartered in Tokyo.

“For example, when I worked for the UN, I was instructed to go and find experts in a certain field to be on a UN panel based solely on race (I was given a list of countries) not based on who is the best in the world in that field and told not to choose an expert from a particular country,” writes Pallavi Kakoti-McHugh in her book: Anti-Human Rights and Anti-Environmental Practices of the UN: Misused American Taxes.

Pallavi was born and raised in India, but is now holds residency permits in both Australia and New Zealand. But because of her “Indian” credentials, she was hired at the UN.. and was apparently seen as “Indian”…and therefore acceptable.

The countries she learned were acceptable to UN brass for the panel she was to help staff were: Iran; Turkey; Pakistan; Nigeria; Ghana; Nepal; India; and, the Ukraine.

In other words, Western countries like Canada, the US, Britain, France, Germany …the ones who pay the largest share of UN funding …were not welcome.

And, she claims, those doing the interviewing also came from some of the very same countries that the acceptable applicants were drawn from for the panel.

Pallavi calls it “anti-white and anti-Western racism” being practiced by UN staff. Her book also contains other allegations of anti-Americanism by UN staff, as well as homophobia, corruption; sexism and even sexual assaults by UN officials, protected by diplomatic immunity.

It is a sad commentary and condemnation of an organization that has lost its way and no longer meets the high standards and objectives civilized nations had for it when they created it.

Her recommendation?

“The current United Nations needs to be dismantled and replaced with a more efficient, productive and fairer international global organization for all people or the United Nations has to significantly change and improve.”

Unfortunately, I don’t think the countries who currently make up the UN are capable of either.

    Sadly, the UN reflects the rest of the world today, evil is winning.

    Canada has sat too long, kept too quiet about this charade, ever afraid to offend the “higher purpose persons” who seem to get ink in the local media.

    It is time to get back to basis with the UN and treat those dictatorships for what they are.

  • 2 Diverdarren // Feb 10, 2017 at 8:55 am

    Harvey, There are two separate levels to the UN. The General Assembly (and their departments) and the Security Council (and the 5 Permanent Members.)

    Is the UN Gen Ass, “anti-white and anti-Western racism”, and anti-American, corrupt, homophobic and sexist. YES, of course the Gen Ass is… That describes the majority of the world. The backwards mentality that most of the planet believes is naturally going to be reflected in their representatives at the UN.

    Looking at the flip side… The Security Council Permanent Members are 4/5 pro-white, 3/5 pro-western, and pro-American. And 5/5 anti-thirdworld.

    Id say based on the unique power of the Permanent Member veto, and how it plays to our favour we need to just “look the other way” when it comes to UN corruption and social ills.

    If the West starts complaining about the problems at the UN I think the member states will start looking at the glaring problem that 5 countries, based on events 70 years ago have dictatorial power on the SC.

    Ya, the UN is based on no principles of Natural Justice. They have, from their very first actions made the planet worse for the majority of its population, not better. We could disband the entire UN, every program, every directorate, and every mission tomorrow, for all I care.

    The only loss for us in the West would be the loss of B.S. United Nations legal legitimacy, (a legitimacy we gave ourselves BTW) for the wars we like to wage around the world to ensure our own agenda.

    (Response: No, we shouldn’t just look away when any org is handed more than $5 BILLION A YEAR … mostly by Western governments … and then the bureaucracy and so many hate-filled, barbaric and corrupt nations and even terrorist organizations use UN resources, funds and organizations to promote, finance, spread and try to impose their anti-West anti-democratic ideologies and even violent agendas. Time to strip the organization to the bare bones …get rid of the cancerous parts before they destroy the whole body. h.o.)

  • 3 RIsaak // Feb 10, 2017 at 9:03 am

    Sad but true fact, our PM has focused much of his time in office on obtaining a security council seat. The UN is a money pit of entitlement and a podium for many of the worst rulers on this orb. Political wills and many issues are far different than they were when the UN was created, sadly the UN has not kept up with the changes and has become itself a mechanism for the most ethically challenged governments to forward their questionable agendas. The whole touchy, feely, utopian world integration which many recent western leaders have embraced has allowed the actions of the bad member states to actually flourish without many of the checks and balances most of us expect from a UN type organization. Political correctness and the reality denying which seems to go hand in hand with such thought processes is enabling the actions of many who function in a manner contrary to the best interests of most humans. We need to stop the sanitizing of the actions of repressive governed nations, this can only be accomplished once we force the bad actors to take ownership of their bad acts. This is something the UN seems to be incapable of in its current form.

    (Response:As I’ve written before, my fear is that Trudeau would sell out Canada’s principles and be willing to turn a blind eye to the hypocrisy, brutal domestic records and even war crimes of some UN member states just to satisfy his own ego and gain a Security Council seat. h.o)

  • 4 13 // Feb 10, 2017 at 9:10 am

    The UN is rivaled only by the Olympic organization for bloated corruption and wasted dollars.

    The Canadian Senate on steroids.

    The UN reflects the pinnacle of governments ability to reward itself with incredible money and perks with NO real reason to exist.

    (Response: I’d love to see more investigation about where all the money goes at the UN… especially who gets hired, who gets contracts and who supplies services/products etc, especially overseas in Africa, Asia and the mid-East. I suspect more than most of us ever hear about goes to rich salaries for bureaucrats and consultants and operation contractors or are lost to pilfering, illegal seizures of aid and even “humanitarian” support for terrorist groups/supporters …. than actually aids those who are totally innocent and need/deserve it. h.o.)

  • 5 The Baker // Feb 10, 2017 at 10:18 am

    HO you have just written about democracy.
    Pick a country, state, province, shire. All the same.

    (Response: You are quite wrong. Yes, our society and various levels of government have problems … but keep it real: there are places where governments and corruption and brutality …even horrors … are inflicted on populations beyond ANYTHING we could even imagine. Just yesterday I saw Amnesty Intl accusing Syrian GOVERNMENT of HANGING as many as 13,000 people in a five year period and burying them in mass graves. Sure puts any issues here in perspective. h.o)

  • 6 Gene the Bean // Feb 10, 2017 at 10:27 am

    Your last two posts are unfortunately about the same thing … money buying influence to oppress the majority for the special benefit of the minority.

  • 7 e.a.f. // Feb 10, 2017 at 12:15 pm

    oh, boy, this is going to be some topic!

    The U.N. no longer services the purposes it was designed to. The “fees” they collect are too large. The final straw for me was when they appointed Saudi Arabia as the head of the Human Rights Committee. enough already!

    Canada out to opt out and so could a lot of other countries. peace keeping? not so much. some of the countries they draw troops from have been sited for “bad behaviour”. those who represent countries are there usually as political rewards.

    No one country is going to disband it because all countries need it to “reward” political faithful. For some countries, it a huge reward to get to go to New York and live it up for years at the expense of the poor in their country. it maybe that citizens in countries get tired of the B.S. and force their governments to leave the U.N.

    The U.N. has branched off into all sorts of different things, which was not the original intent. If it is to continue then let it simply be one rep from each country for dealing with issues of war. Yes, I know the underlying issues are important also, but in this day and age and communications and other world organizations, they can simply do some of that work.

    I vote for getting rid of the U.N. Its a waste of tax dollars for most of the countries, except those few who really benefit. like Russia and Syria today. Assad is guilty, in my opinion, of crimes against humanity and the U.N.. will never do anything about it because Russia will block it with the help of china. neither country can afford to have Syria called out, because they could/would be next and that doesn’t exclude the U.S.A,. Some are of the opinion Bush, Blair, and Cheney ought to have been charged with crimes against humanity with their invasion of Iraq, the second time.

    (Response: I cant see any reason to keep the General Assembly: it is so far removed from what it was set up to be. I’m sure there can be a more effective world-wide co-operative organization set up to handle voluntarily contributed and delivered aid to where it is needed … without giving a soapbox and power to affect spending to useless nations that don’t pay their way or uphold any basic human rights and justice standards. And I’d bet the waste and over staffing and corruption could be substantially be reduced without a General Assembly bureaucracy that costs a fortune and seems to be so biased. But I think we still need a type of security council forum that can get the powers together to try to mitigate or avoid conflicts and even set up UN-type forces to go into areas where there is agreement to act. h.o.)

  • 8 13 // Feb 10, 2017 at 3:58 pm

    We can all breath easy as Trudeau will not be able to play world leader at the UN anytime soon. He would likely have trouble getting a seat at the grown ups table never mind a seat on the security council.
    With any luck sooner or later DJT will start to examine the viability of USA participation in world organizations where most members want to ride on the coat tails of the Americans.

  • 9 Diverdarren // Feb 10, 2017 at 5:09 pm

    Harvey, you want to strip the UN to the bone. get rid of the cancerous parts.

    Great, I’m all for that.

    What are you willing to give up to achieve that?

    Are you willing to give up the 5 permanent members on the Security Council? Let the General Assemble vote on who sits on the SC.

    Are you willing to remove the veto of the Big 5?
    let majority rule on the SC.

    Are you willing to let democracy rule the UN?
    If we let it be representation by population then China should control 1/7 of every decision.
    India should control another 1/7 of the vote.

    Face it Harvey, the 7 billion dollars (13B if you include the peace keeping missions) is money well spent. We get what we want from it.

    The UN legitimizes whatever action we want to take around globe. We can create a county out the desert. Send troops into any sovereign nations for our own gain. Arrest any criminal we choose, and try him at the UN World Court. We can sanction and blockade anyone who gets in the way. We can create international law at our whim, and punish any who dare oppose.

    And there is not thing one anyone can do about it.

    What are you going to do? take your complaint to the Security Council, where we have an exclusive veto over every motion. LOL.

    The UN is a disgraceful organization built on a foundation that is the antithesis of Natural Justice. But, if we’re going to have a UN, it might as well work to our advantage.

    Harvey, have you ever thought… maybe the West is the cancerous part. Pariah quasi-states may get to say crazy things at the UN. We get to DO crazy things at the UN.

    (Response: My solution? Read my response to e.a.f. I support a security council of the biggest powers… but the General assembly … esp its ability to pass useless or even harmful resolutions … can go. There are lots of other ways to organize legitimate aid, refugee and peacekeeping activities … without what have clearly become phony politicized even racist orgs like the UN Human rights (what a joke!) Council, Islamic front UNRWA, politicized UNESCO etc. As for ” maybe the West is the cancerous part” … you’re welcome to believe that …but don’t get ever caught expressing yourself as critically as you do here in the cancerous West in the clutches of others who also profess that view…like ISIS, Hesbollah, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Al Nusrah front, Boko Haram …or their ally states. h.o)

  • 10 Diverdarren // Feb 10, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    WOW Harvey, here I am arguing we in the West have a pretty sweet deal going for ourselves at the UN.

    And you are arguing that we should get more.

    I thought I was imperialistic. You want the biggest powers to have Security Council like powers and a disbandment of the body politic.

    I have to ask… these “little” ousted countries that suddenly have no seat in our “new world order”, do you still want them to pay their dues to our new UN so they can have access to “legitimate aid, refugee and peacekeeping activities”?

    I don’t know if the world will sign on to this new UN, and we in the West loose our rubber stamp of legitimacy for our global actions.

    They get a pulpit to decry Israel, and offices to write reports stating Canadians don’t treat the natives with decency, ect…

    And we get the Security Council and near dictatorial powers over the globe.

    It’s a give and take world.

  • 11 Desperado // Feb 10, 2017 at 7:20 pm

    Harvey, you have a huge axe to grind against anyone or any organization that says or implies the slightest thing that is seen to be anti Israel/anti Jewish. It is really quite appalling considering the terrorism that country has foisted upon its neighbours.

    (Response: Pallavi is originally from India, currently lives in Australia and judging by her married last name McHugh: I don’t think she’s Jewish. But her book …277 pages …outlines what SHE says was her own witnessing of widespread anti_human rights, racist and corruption at the UN. Their anti_Israel bias is not only well documented … but unfortunately is just the tip of the iceberg of how the UN and its various organizations and agencies have disgraced themselves MANY times over the past decade in many parts of the world. The Daily Mail just this month wrote extensively of UN waste: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3543833/UN-refugee-camp-chief-wasted-millions-reveals-whistleblower-stunning-admission-obsessed-photos-stars-t-shirts.html. And that was gentle compared to the assessment of corruption at the UN by the Asia Trading Post: http://www.asiatradingonline.com/un.htm. It goes on and on … whether you are willing to see the sad truth of what/how the UN has now become. h.o)

  • 12 e.a.f. // Feb 10, 2017 at 8:48 pm

    I want all of it to go except a rep. for each country. Now what influence they might have is something else. As some have pointed out, the G-20 would be out voted. We could have some crazy game rules. The “west”, well we don’t have a monopoly on either good or evil. one member per nation and they don’t get to make the rules, just to organize and recommend. We certainly have seen the “west” do what is best for them and their corporations and then we have seem “other” countries do what they think is right and that hasn’t worked out so well either.

    advisory/recommendations/organizational and that is it. with one rep. per country the whole budget would be a lot less and countries who are poor won’t have to spend that much either.

    Yes, the U.N. has accomplished much, but these days its just a great place to go for a very long vacation at some body else’s expense. As the writer of the book advises, its a tad over board and I for one am not willing to pay for it. As to keeping the peace any where, not so much. the U.S.A. and others invaded Iraq and we still have a mess not to mention Afghanistan. then we have peacekeepers, who either didn’t do anything, sexually assaulted the people they were supposed to protect. Its not like the U.N. is ever going to do anything about Syria. It didn’t do anything while the Kamuer Rouge murdered 3M of its citizens in Cambodia. Gee as I’m writing this, I’m done with the U.N. as it is now and has been for the last 30/40 years.

  • 13 Lew // Feb 10, 2017 at 10:03 pm

    Harvey, there is no doubt the United Nations needs to be rebuilt for many reasons, chief among them the fact that the original goals have long ago failed to be realized. We’ve watched as it stood in naked impotence too many times while massive slaughters unfolded before the eyes of the world. The current example is ongoing in Syria.

    Unfortunately, I very much doubt there will be any improvement until the first paragraph of your post is amended to read, “…which thrice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind.” In other words, another world war.

    We may not have long to wait. There is a cabal in the White House working on it.

    (Response: Another world war? Given the state of the BIG world leaders, there would not be left anything to rebuild…only to mourn what the UN COULD have been. h.o)

  • 14 E. Johnson // Feb 11, 2017 at 1:28 pm

    In my humble opinion the United Nations began to lose credibility in 1974 when it willingly tolerated the theatrics of Yasser Arafat waving an olive branch and a pistol during his address to the General Assembly. It has gone steadily downhill ever since. Rwanda, Kosovo, Congo, South Sudan, Syria but a few of a long list of atrocities where the UN proved to be totally ineffective. It has become this bloated bureaucracy spending billions of dollars with no accountability. Other than blowing it up and replacing it with something smaller and streamlined to deal with preservation of peace, security and basic human rights in the world I doubt this can be fixed.

    (Response: very good point! I thought Kruschev’s antics were silly, but Arafat carrying a gun into the General Assembly was the worst. It reduced serious discussion and debate into theatrics… And people there applauded him for it. Disgraceful!

    The UN reminds me of the League of Nations just before the 2nd World War.
    A corrupt, beaurocratic, increasingly irrelevant organization more concerned with its own survival than performing its mandate.
    I , for one woulndnt shed at tear at its demise.
    Even with the jingoistic sabre rattling in the South China Sea ramping up to dangerous levels.

    About 25 years ago New York kicked around the idea of revoking the UN’s charter in the city and booting their diplomatic “immunity” to the curb after an Arab prince who had raped and murdered a young assistant and then fled on a private jet back to Saudi Arabia.
    I was horrified to hear our Prime Minister at the time muse publicly that Montreal might be a sutable location if the UN ever needed a new home.
    Apparently the thought of Montreal’s winters became just enough incentive for the Saudi’s.

    They sent the Arab prince back to the States for trial………..

    Well said Harvey, this is one of your best Analysis of any one subject yet!

    I especially must say your third and fifth Paragraphs drive the point home very well and people should pay attention.

    I weep for Millions of innocent People in Countries all over the World that have been not only let down by their own Leadership but they have also been let down by The UN and it’s Member Countries!

    Darfur, Rwanda, Sudan and several Countries like C.A.R. where genocide is taking place right now should all have been addressed and in most cases nothing was done, not a finger lifted.

    Seems to me that the Elite Liberal U.N. Types living the Life of Luxury and Entitlements in NYC are more concerned about which Champagne or Wine they will be having with their Caviar and Canapes on any given evening.

    It makes me sick.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/mar/10/un-failing-league-of-nations-isis-boko-haram

    I admit I am an interventionist and most sincere desire would be that The UN would intervene in every World “Hot Spot’ where Tyrant Thugs have taken over a Country and proceed with destruction of any Para Military Dictatorship or Militias.

    Yes I know U.N. Soldiers are not Rambo or Chuck Norris and that is not always practical but there are plenty of times that a highly trained group of UN SAS types could be mobilized and destroy a Militias or Dictators in very short order.

    And yes of course it may mean leaving a UN Police Force behind to maintain peace but so be it.

    I am not talking Peace Keeping, I am talking about destroying Rogue Forces that enslave and practice wholesale Slaughter of Innocent People in any Country.

    We need a U.N. Occupying Security Force that “Shoots Back”!! Sorry DBW

    Hopefully Liberal Elites will one day soon begin to understand that they only thing Tyrants, Dictators, and Thugs understand is the use of Lethal Force!!

    I could be wrong but it seems that over the past two generations there has been a real vacuum of inept and impotent Leadership coming from so called Civilized Western Nations that has allowed the UN to fall into the hands of other “Special Interest” Nations that seem to have no interest in living up to the U.N. mandate that was originally intended.

    I do not know if disbanding or doing away with the U.N. and starting over again is the answer.

    All of the infrastructure is in place, all it takes is Leadership and the political will.

    There is no reason why a strong group of Leaders that would demand accountability from Member nations could not re-structure the U.N. and make it function as was originally intended again.

    They could begin by ensuring that the U.N. dispensed with the ideas of appointing Nations that have poor Human Rights Records and are in fact carrying out atrocities on their own people to the revolving U.N. Security Council.

    It is hard to believe that the U.N. has put some of those Rogue Nations on the U.N. Security Council!!

    It made me sick a few weeks ago when the outgoing U.N. Leader Ban Ki moon glad handing it with the U.N. Elite at his Retirement Reception.

    Nothing accomplished under his watch of any consequence but the Lavish Banquet Tables never looked better!!

    I could even hear the “Oink Oink” over the clapping of the worshipping crowd.

  • 19 The Baker // Feb 12, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    I get and understand your knee jerk response; “You are quite wrong” to my #5 post.

    Absolutely there are atrocities, major ones, horrific ones, around the world but I think you missed the point. It is all a matter of degrees and you cannot convince me the deliberate action that results in the “HANGING as many as 13,000 people” is somehow different than the deliberate inaction that results in 45,000 US murders in a three year period. The same corrupt mentality is at play. The 13,000, in large clumps, just catches more attention. It really doesn’t matter how you come to be dead, if those in power had a hand in it.

    Dead Canadian native women and children.

    Dead BC children under the “care” of a government.

    Dead blacks in East St. Louis.

    Dead Syrians.

    Same leadership mores.
    Same results.

    TRUMP GETS IT, BIG LEAGUE…

    During the recent US primary/election campaigns, Mr. Trump railed against the excesses of the UN.

    And what did the insane American/Western Left-wing do? They went nuts, calling him every bad name under the sun.

    Now his new UN ambassador Nicky Haley sits, wondering what the hell she got herself into, in the UN security Council as she views the gaggle of over-plump/paid losers and gutter snipes who populate this disgusting organization.

    What is a decent US president to do? Trump’s threatened to cut-off funding, a brilliant idea in which the rats in the UN building are simply aghast. Of course they are. Take away their filthy lucre and their party’s over; back to their tribal wars extant in the jungles of Nigeria, Ghana, Niger, East Africa, etc., and the deserts of the south Sahara. Good luck!

    Over the years, a great morale equivalency has overwhelmed the West with the rampant American feminism “philosophy” enforced by its favourite weapon, anti-whiteman political correctness.

    President Trump (with former pres Obama now openly sabotaging this new presidency to save his so-called wretched legacy of Obamacare. et al) does have his hands full.

    I give Trump more credit for suriving this political typhoon than do his retractors, who every day wake up thinking: “We’ve got him now!” No you DON’T.

    What these losers really don’t realize is that the world is divided along especially religious lines: Islam vs Everyone else. Understand that Islam is, by definition, submission; submission to Allah.

    Its constituents are born to commit Jihad, or coercive proselytizing, to convert non-believers, in the name of Allah.

    Back to the UN. It is an organization that is aimed at disrupting/destroying the West and most of us don’t mind at all. Apparently we deserve it because we are nasty White oppressors and imperialists.
    I am not surprised that so many “oppressors” are onside! They’re useful idiots.

    The anti-Trumpsters simply refuse to believe that Trump is the only world leader right now who has the guts to stand up to the insanity of political correctness, the UN blackguards, and the thousand of idiots seen in street demos.

    When you don’t study history you are simply SCREWED.

    Well, here we go again …. how many comments this time before a Trudeau mention …. before a Trump mention … ??? On a story about the U.N.

    We all know there are a few here that couldn’t keep to script if it was duct taped to their face but let’s keep it real….

    BMCQ,

    There’s an old saying that a camel is a horse designed by a committee. And another that says a bureaucracy provides a difficulty for every solution. The United Nations is a committee made up of committees, and is arguably the world’s largest bureaucracy. It is larger and much more diverse than when originally devised, mainly due to extensive decolonization by its founding members in the years after the Second World War, and further complicated by the veto enjoyed by five of its members. It’s essentially a recipe for impotence. It will take more than the political will you cite to rebuild it. The impetus will require something in the order of a worldwide catastrophe that harms all.

    You say, “I admit I am an interventionist and most sincere desire would be that The UN would intervene in every World “Hot Spot’ where Tyrant Thugs have taken over a Country and proceed with destruction of any Para Military Dictatorship or Militias.”

    Would you include China or Russia in any list of para-military dictatorships? How about North Korea? Or Syria?

    The UN was designed in the hope of preventing the next world war, not creating it.

    I’m interested in your view that “liberal elites” are behind the shortcomings of the United Nations. The link you provided linked to a review of significant world events and the UN’s response. One of them was the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq, which proceeded without a UN resolution, and was based on a false premise. The invasion however does fit what you state as your most sincere desire. How did it work out, and what role did the “liberal elites” have in it? Did it make the world safer? Or did it kill hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians while making Dick Cheney’s companies more than $36 billion and further destabilizing the whole region?

    As you say, the rest is history. And the historical record will be far kinder to Barack Obama than to George W. Bush.

    As for giving Donald Trump a chance, I don’t really have any alternative, do I? Having said that, believing that he “gets it”, or that he stands up to insanity rather than being a poster boy for it (even some of his own supporters are openly questioning his grip on reality) as others here do, call me skeptical.

    Gene the Bean, if you cant connect the dots to see how the President of the United States and to a far far far lesser degree the Prime Minister of Canada are directly related to a blog regarding the United Nations I would wonder why you dont get it.

    Thats one of those entries where after you read it you ask yourself why did I say that.

    Pass the duct tape when your done

  • 25 Gene the Bean // Feb 13, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    #24 – What I get is the incessant ramblings of those unable to rid themselves of the “enemy”, whether it be those commie leftwards or those selfish rabid right corporatists …. schoolyard rants from those unable to speak or write a paragraph without gutter-sniping their perceived personal enemy.

    It is the idiots on both “sides” that has enabled an egotistical borderline mentally incompetent racist compulsive liar to become the “leader” of the free world.

    But I am sure you are perfectly ok with that…..

    ‘ A three dressed up as a nine’pretty well sums it up…..

  • 26 BMCQ // Feb 14, 2017 at 8:02 am

    Bean – 22

    Another thought provoking contribution to the Blog!!

    I can hardly wait to see your next post!

    I am “Aghast”!!

    Lew – 23

    I simply feel that it would be easier and make more sense to re-structure much of the UN than to totally start over again.

    I am quite sure that if a strong Democratic Group of Countries that seem to be providing most of the Funding for the UN demanded a re-boot and restructure of some of the “Ground Rules” it would be much more practical than starting over, something that could take a generation.

    When I say “The Political Will” I mean a handful of the large contributors need to demand a restructure and re-do of some very distressing UN Policies. What is wrong with calling for something like that?

    I believe the U.S. now funds about 30% of the UN and other Countries like Japan, Germany, France, Canada, Russia, China, and others pay anywhere between 2 and 10%.

    https://www.globalpolicy.org/un-finance/tables-and-charts-on-un-finance/member-states-assessed-share-of-the-un-budget.html

    As to the Veto, that is another subject that needs deep discussion.

    Another thing that really needs looked is the whole Security Council.

    How in the world does the UN end up appointing some of the Rogue Nations to the Security Council is beyond me!

    Even the permanent Members like Russia and China leave much to be desired.

    How many times do we need to re-hash the Iraq Invasion?

    Fact is the World’s All Time Liberal Elite Tony Blair agreed with the Intelligence provided and he was a big reason for the Iraq Invasion.

    Believe it or not Lew even you and Aghast could have agreed to the invasion with the Intelligence provided.

    20/20 Hindsight is very easy once all is said and done!

    Hussein actually did Gas thousands of his own people and Gas is a WMD.

    I may not have invaded, I would have Bombed every Bridge, Palace, 20 of them, Military Installation, Airports and Planes, and any Government Infrastructure.

    That would have made the Hussein Government impotent and very vulnerable and the Country may have broken up into Tribes of Sunni to the East, Kurds to the North and Shiite to the southern Regions.Hussein could then not control the country and he would have very quickly lost a grip on power.

    No U.S./Ally Casualties, and perhaps hundreds of thousands fewer deaths of Iraq Citizens.

    Hussein did somehow need to be removed from power.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2003/01/26/weekinreview/the-world-how-many-people-has-hussein-killed.html

    You could more than likely tell by my mention of Rambo and Chuck Norris my musings of Intervention on a wish, hope, and a prayer was simply a dream and a if only commentary.

    Do you not hope wish and perhaps even pray that a responsible UN could intervene and destroy Thugs, Tyrants, and Dictators from allowing and in fact carrying out the needless slaughter of thousands of innocent Citizens of any given Country?

    Well guess what Lew the UN could be doing much more than what they are to keep World Nations and their Populations Safe and I support that 100%!

    All we need is the Political Will, Leadership, Courage from UN Nations, and a little thought to the comfort and care of our fellow Human Beings wherever they happened to be born and reside.

    Over to you Bean, let’s see what you have to say about the UN!

    Cat got your Tongue?!!

  • 27 Lew // Feb 14, 2017 at 6:23 pm

    BMCQ,

    I agree that a revamped and effective UN would be preferable to what we have now, and for some of the reasons you cite. We disagree on the necessary impetus for change and the cause of what we have now (consistently blaming the “left” for every ill known to inflict mankind is neither accurate nor helpful). I don’t believe that change is going to happen because of altruistic political will, partly due to the opinion expressed by Diverdarren at #9 and #10. In reality the UN does serve those in control, who realize that any revamp (unless done under shock doctrine conditions) would not be worth the massive effort and resources involved to achieve what would ultimately reduce that control.

    @Island Lookout

    You say, “When you don’t study history you are simply SCREWED.”

    History tells us that “ …the jungles of Nigeria, Ghana, Niger, East Africa, etc…” are where Europe and the United States nobly went shopping for slaves. It also tells us that those countries you denigrate and treat with contempt were colonized by Britain, Germany, Portugal, Belgium, and other European states. They only regained autonomous nationhood largely in the 50’s and 60’s after a century of being raped and pillaged, and have been struggling to establish stability ever since. France and Russia had their revolutions, the U.S. its terrible civil war, China’s civil wars are too numerous to list here, and Pakistan and India are still on a knife’s edge despite several wars after the partition of British India (there’s those Brits again) in 1947.

    Maybe you should be a bit more tolerant when sarcastically wishing those African countries luck with “their tribal wars”.

    But since Trump and tolerant are antonyms and you’ve already climbed onto the Trump train, I’m not optimistic.

    Lew – 27

    Not trying to be too simplistic here but I just do not see the UN as it is now managed working for so-called Developing Countries that have been taken over by War Lords that are killing the populations simply because of their religion or a slight difference of Ethnic Origin.

    Again, the UN cannot be Superman and intervene destroying the Tyrants as they rise up but we/the UN need to do better.

    It seems so unfair that because I was born here I was allowed to grow up and live a more or less normal life (I am sure some here would not agree) taking advantage of all offered and those not lucky enough to be born in Canada must look over their shoulder never knowing when the Sword may come down on them or other family members.

    The UN must do better and without good Nations demanding more from the UN things will not change in places like the Middle East, Africa, or other World Hot Spots.

    No better time or place than now in the Western Free World for MSM to step up and show us the War Crimes and Atrocities innocent people are subjected to in those Countries day in and day out by their own kind.

    Safe and Secure Populations in Civilized Countries all over the World needs to be made aware of the in justice and in turn those people need to demand more accountability from the UN.

    Yes, I know, easier said than done.
