COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

This report is total crap propaganda, and, as a couple of thoughtful readers remind us below, murderous Saudi Arabia is now chair of the committee issuing this report for “human rights.”

The UN today is in total lockstep with the United States. It displays virtually no independence.

A few years back, the United States showed the UN just who is boss by refusing to pay its dues for a considerable amount of time. That ugly display wouldn’t be soon forgotten since the U.S. accounts for fully a quarter of the budget.

Whenever a man of some independent-mindedness has managed to be elected as Secretary General, America has constructed a plot to oust him, as in the case of Boutros Boutros-Ghali.

Old Madeleine Albright, a truly bloody character, won her diplomatic spurs with just such dirty work.

Ban Ki-Moon is America’s man, and his ineffectual and sometimes cowardly behavior is just what America likes.
