How the UN's Neutrality Props Up Evil Regimes


"If ever there were a dog-bites-man story, 'UN Stinkingly Corrupt Shock!' is it. ... One of the reasons I'm in favour of small government is because big government tends to be remote government, and remote government is unaccountable, and, as a wannabe world government, the UN is the remotest and most unaccountable of all. ... there are millions of global relationships far better for the long-term health of the planet than using American money to set up Eurowimp talking shops manned by African thugs -- which is what the UN Human Rights Commission boils down to."-- Mark Steyn

If bureaucracy and BS could fill an empty stomach, the UN could feed the world
"Negotiations are not a substitute for force.  When international negotiations work, often it is because aggressors know what is going to happen if it doesn't work."

"[Radical Islamism] is not a position with which Americans can bargain or negotiate. With it there is no common ground -- not even respect for life -- on which to begin a dialogue. It can only be destroyed or utterly isolated."

Iraqi Official: "U.N. Failed us"
"The U.N. has no moral authority, especially where Iraq is concerned."- James Taranto, HERE. "The liberal belief in the United Nations can no longer be said to have any basis in reality; it has entered the realm of pure superstition." -- James Taranto, HEREOn 12/13/03 The New York Times advised: "Instead of driving away France, Germany, Russia and Canada with financial sanctions, the president should be creating the room for compromise that will lead to those countries' sending money and troops to Iraq."
FACT: $35 BILLION OF THE MONEY IRAQ "OWED" FRANCE, GERMANY AND RUSSIA WAS FOR ARMS IN VIOLATION OF THE U.N. SANCTIONS.  Are we supposed to forgive, and thereby encourage, such perfidy and let them in on the $18 Billion in rebuilding contracts?
See: "The New York Times reports that both the United Nations and Najaf's Shiite clergymen had asked the U.S. not to provide military protection [and both wound up being car-bombed].. The arrogance and stupidity of the U.N. is especially striking; the Times reports that it actually continued employing the same Baathist 'security guards' -- actually spies for Saddam's regime -- it had used before liberation." HERE
"One must be free from persecution for one’s political views, from being arbitrarily imprisoned, or from having one’s property seized. Such rights are crucial to human life. Men cannot learn, make new discoveries, forge long-range plans, or enjoy the rewards of their effort, if they live under the constant threat of being looted, imprisoned, or murdered. ... 
"In a truly Orwellian climax, the [U.N.'s] Declaration brazenly upholds, as an example of man’s rights and freedoms, the individual’s duty to serve the state." -- Robert W. Tracinski in The U.N.'s Distortion of Rights
"Article 29 (3), [of the U.N.'s Declaration of Human Rights] reads: 'These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.'
So, there you have it. Your right to live, your right to liberty, your right to own property and to think as you please, your right to express your opinions and to gather peacefully with others are all gone … eliminated … if your exercise of those rights places you at odds with the purposes and principles of the United Nations." -- Neal Boortz, HERE|
Pentagon: The UN is "irrelevant".  Hooray!       Now it's the State Dept.'s turn.  Well....?

The ONLY issues that must be settled before ANY others are: 1. Do you want the axis of evil to continue developing and spreading nuclear weapons? and 2: Do you want lots more of the world's oil reserves and oil income to fall into the hands of Muslim terrorists?  Hmm?
"The fashionable idiocy that haters must have justifications is one of those ideas that George Orwell said only an intellectual could believe -- because no one else could be such a fool." -- Dr. Thomas Sowell HERE.

Ex-Sen. Slade Gorton asked the most to-the-point question of all: Could the 9-11 attacks have been prevented if President Bush had implemented each and every one of Clarke's recommendations immediately upon taking office?   "No," replied Clarke.
Clinton appointed George Tenet as CIA Chief in July 1997, meaning that Tenet served during the Clinton administration for three and a half years.  But Clinton saw Tenet only twice, in other words, a grand total of two (2) times during that entire period, despite the first attack on the World Trade Center and the ones on the Khobar Towers, the Cole and the embassies.   On the other hand, even though the new Bush administration was in office only about 8 months before the Sept. 11 attacks, Bush received world-wide intelligence reports on all terrorist threats, not just Al Qaeda's, from Tenet himself, in person, well over FIFTY TIMES in that relatively short time period.  What does all THAT say about Richard Clarke's claims and charges????  And did you know Clarke totally contradicted himself HERE???
In October of 1998, during the Clinton administration, the U.S. Senate passed The Iraq Liberation Act, making it the official policy of the U.S. government to seek regime change in Iraq. The vote was unanimous, including every Democrat in the Senate, even Ted Kennedy.

"Those who now talk about a need for 'iron-clad proof' are talking election-year nonsense when it comes to national survival.  When the planes flew into the World Trade Center, that was iron-clad proof. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, that was iron-clad proof. We cannot wait for iron-clad proof in a nuclear age." -- Thomas Sowell, HERE

The pacificists' arguments amount to saying: since these massive threats were brought upon us by our very own foreign policy errors, this means (in their minds, anyway) that we "therefore" have no right or obligation to defuse those threats ourselves.  Yeah, right.
Despite the insistence of various Democrats, butt-covering diplomats  and other vacillators that it had to be due to years of international cooperation in (fruitless) sanctions and diplomacy, Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi made it clear that he decided to disarm due to our terminating the regime in Iraq, NOT Afghanistan: "I will do whatever the Americans want because I saw what happened in Iraq, and I was afraid," Gaddafi told Italy's Prime Minister Berlusconi here & HERE.

"In fact, more than half a century of experience shows that the U.N. is a theater of hypocrisy, a sink of corruption, a street market of sordid bargains and a seminary of cynicism. It is a place where mass-murdering heads of state can stand tall and sell their votes to the highest bidder and where crimes against humanity are rewarded."

   "Reason is the faculty which perceives, identifies and integrates the material provided by man's senses. Mysticism is the claim to a non-sensory means of knowledge.

   "In Western civilization, the period ruled by mysticism is known as the Dark Ages and the Middle Ages.  I will assume that you know the nature of that period and the state of human existence in those ages.  The Renaissance broke the rule of the mystics.  'Renaissance' means 'rebirth.'  Few people today will care to remind you that it was a rebirth of reason -- of man's mind.

   "In the light of what followed -- most particularly, in the light of the industrial revolution -- nobody can now take faith, or religion, or revelation, or any form of mysticism as his basic and exclusive guide to existence, not in the way it was taken in the Middle Ages.  This does not mean that the Renaissance has automatically converted everybody to rationality; far from it.  It means only that so long as a single automobile, a single skyscraper or a single copy of Aristotle's Logic remains in existence, nobody will be able to arouse men's hope, eagerness and joyous enthusiasm by telling them to ditch their minds and rely on mystic faith.  This is why I said that mysticism, as a cultural power, is dead." -- Ayn Rand,HERE

"Mysticism is insanity on a mission, often involving missionaries." -- Bert Rand

"Those kinds of mystics who preach that killing and destruction are on a par with creativity and production are way beyond nuts -- they're freakin' screaming bizarros.  If you've ever wondered what allows and enables pure evil, you have it right there: it's mysticism." -- Rick Gaber

"Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive." -- Ayn Rand

"A moral compass needle needs a butt end. Whatever direction France is pointing -- toward collaboration with Nazis, accommodation with communists, existentialism, Jerry Lewis, or UN resolution veto -- we can go the other way with a quiet conscience." -- P.J. O'Rourke
