Skip to comments.“If Turtle Bay Had a Moral Compass...”( Here’s an alternative U.N. resolution)

Its happy hour at the United Nations. After four weeks of Hezbollah-provoked war in Israel and Lebanon, accompanied by much diplomatic hand-wringing, the U.N. Security Council met Friday evening to adopt 15-0 its latest attempt to paper over the real problems: Resolution 1701 on The Situation in the Middle East. This resolution is meant to deliver the ceasefire that Secretary-General Kofi Annan has been calling for, also described in the lingo of the U.S. State Department as a cessation of hostilities.
Unfortunately, if Resolution 1701 has any effect at all, its real meaning is that we now embark on a period in which Hezbollah will seize the opportunity to regroup and reload. The feeble and compromised mix of U.N. peacekeepers and the Lebanese army, which is the force authorized in this resolution, will fail to stop them. Iran and Syria will proceed apace with their terrorist infection and subjugation of Lebanon. The U.N. will wave around this latest piece of paper to try to prevent Israel from defending itself, or, for that matter, defending the rest of us against the Death to Israel! Death to America! Hezbollah agenda. Irans President Ahmadinejad, enjoying yet another confirmation of the U.N.s mincing impotence in the face of guns, bombs, rockets, and terror, will continue his fevered preparations to roll out the nuclear bomb.

Turtle Bay (The UN) has no moral compass. Period. Drive it out and relocate it in Harare, Zimbabwe where not only will most delegates feel perfectly at home, but where it will boost a locally impoverished culture.
Everybody wins in this scenario -- why is it not happening???
The United Nations building would make great condos.
If you think so, you're invited to buy. The building is in really decrepit condition. Structurally it or may not be sound, but I can assure you that its HVAC (air-conditioning) system is so ancient it is beyond redemption -- sort of like trying to find a modern plug-in engine replacement for your '54 Packard.
Great profile page. I like Teller and Von Braun, too.
Thanks. They are the heroes of the 20th century. Along with Albert Einstein.
As long as the frame is strong, it could be converted to condos. Replace all the guts, including the HVAC, the plumbing, the wiring, etc. Oh, and fumigate the snot out of the place before starting the rebuilding process.
And if the frame isn't sound, tear it down and build condos, or a park for that matter.
