AP ^ | 9/16/6

Posted on 09/16/2006 8:57:42 PM PDT by SmithL

Some highlights from the Nonaligned Movement summit's final declaration.

TERRORISM:

Denounces the brutalization of peoples under foreign occupation as the gravest form of terrorism. Asks that terrorism not be associated with any religion, nationality or ethnic group and that it be recognized that the struggle of peoples under colonial or alien domination does not constitute terrorism.

MIDEAST CONFLICTS:

Strongly condemns "the relentless Israeli aggression launched against Lebanon." Promotes a revival of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Supports the Palestinian people's "inalienable right to self-determination in their independent and sovereign State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital."

NUCLEAR IRAN:

Defends the right of all countries to use atomic energy for peaceful purposes. Declares even the threat of attack against peaceful nuclear facilities to be "a great danger to human beings and the environment." Recognizes the International Atomic Energy Agency as the sole authority on nuclear verification. Encourages Iran to cooperate actively and fully with the IAEA to promote confidence and a peaceful resolution of the issue." Calls for a "nuclear-weapon-free zone" in the Middle East, including Israel.

I guess the IAEA is officially on the side of these creeps.

The Living Dead today silently announced the preexisting formation of a Nonaligned Movement to steadfastly move in a precisely ambivalent fashion.

The French surrendered the next day, following Muslim rioting.

Officially they are disqualified because they are still Americans with an A. No matter how left-wing they are they can't attend them.

I don't know why India would stoop to be involved with these terror-lovers (I know this all started with the bipolar world of US & USSR, but that is over now). India has often been the victim of Muslim terrorists.

It has been essentially dead since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The concept of "nonaligned" never really works in anything other than a bipolar world: in a world where the United States is paramount, or in the wetdream of France, Russia, and PR China of "multipolar world" (which is suspiciously similar to the late-19th century pre-Entente Cordiale Europe in terms of geopolitical arrangements) you can't really be "nonaligned" to whom, can you?

Fidel Castro Elected President of Movement Non Aligned Nations

HAVANA, September 15 (RHC) - President Fidel Castro was elected by acclaim on Friday as president of the Movement of Non Aligned Nations, whose 14th Summit began today in Havana presided over by Cuban acting President Raúl Castro.

At the suggestion of Malaysia's Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the heads of the more than 100 delegations of member countries applauded the decision to choose the Cuban leader as President of the Non Aligned Nations, a duty he will assume for the second time.

Shortly before, Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Pérez Roque announced that acting President Raúl Castro would be heading the island's delegation as the Commander in Chief is still convalescent and is complying with the doctors' orders to rest.

The Malaysian Prime Minister also suggested - and it was approved by acclaim - that Raúl Castro would be the acting president of the Summit until Fidel assumes his State and Government duties again.

The 14th Summit of the Movement of Non Aligned Nations began around 10:00 a.m. on Friday after Raúl Castro officially welcomed the heads of delegations. At the Convention Center in the Cuban capital, he shook hands and greeted all presidents, prime ministers and other high ranking officials heading their respective countries' delegations.

After the brief speech by the Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Pérez Roque, the Malaysian Prime Minister read a report on the work of the Movement over the last three years, in which it has been trying to revitalize its struggle in defense of the principles that gave birth to this organization.

"We are convinced that Cuba will do a good job leading Movement. Its record gives us this certainty that the Non Aligned Nations are in the good hands of Cuba and that it will reach higher levels," said Badawi.

My recollection from the 1960s is that "non-aligned" meant "aligned with the Soviet Union and getting money from them in order to scare the U.S. into also giving them money, but because of fears of leader assassination by the KGB, siding unfailingly with the Communists."

(It's a long definition of the word "whore.")

Their loyalty is impressive, since they're still loyal to the Soviet Union, and it doesn't even exist.

But there is a closet Communist "ex" KGB agent running Russia, so the USSR can be said to still exist on some level. And you can bet that the leaders of the "Non-aligned" movement ally with the neo-Soviet in the Kremlin.

Interestingly enough or not, PR China had long been an unofficial leader of NAM (remember Deng Xiaoping's "Three blocs" speech at the UN in 1973?). China had long wanted to become a full member but NAM only gives them "Observer" status. Obviously it would make a fullblown explicit mockery of itself when NAM itself becomes another "pole" in world geopolitics (not aligned to itself? Not aligned to your principal geopolitical opponent?)

NAM is openly making joke out of itself. It officially said it would not align with the Soviet Union, but admits its successor state as an observer?

We all know it is unofficially a bloc of mainly Soviet-backed tinpots (only Southeast Asia could be said to be economically any good), but to see it openly embraces one of the supposedly-not-to-be-aligned countries is another matter.

"so the USSR can be said to still exist on some level."
Well, on this particular occasion you ought to have used communist phraseologism: "it lives [or "continues to live"] in the hearts of the proletarians". Ditto here. What else to expect from the kegebuns and their fellow-travelers?

They don't even have a dedicated website themselves. Even another famous confab organization, the Commonwealth, has one. All I can find are sites hosted by wealthier member countries' ministries of foreign affairs that are dedicated to whatever year the annual conference is held in that country.

Note that any countries that become members of regional alliances eg NATO, EU etc are disqualified. For instance, Malta, Cyprus, Finland, and Austria were all past members and they have all withdrawn since they joined EU. ASEAN or SAARC don't seem to count as members...

It seems that the Non-Alligned Nations would make some accomodation--maybe non-voting status or Honorary Anti-American Terrorist or something like that--for Americans who want the U.S.A. to be a Third World Nation (or no nation at all).

Indian was a founding member of NAM along with Egypt and Yoguslavia. Then, as now, it is ruled by the quasi-communist Congress Party. India won't be really free till the Congress is flushed down the toilet.

Putin sends greetings to Non-Aligned Movement summit - MOSCOW, September 15 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia views the Non-Aligned Movement as a key element of the modern architecture of international relations, and wishes to continue mutually beneficial cooperation, say President Vladimir Putin greetings to delegates and guests of the movement’ s 14th summit in Havana.

“The world has encountered new threats – terrorism, interethnic crises and conflicts, uneven economic development, and environmental problems,” run the greetings posed by the Kremlin press service on Friday. “I think that the search for collective solutions would be the most adequate way of reacting to these modern challenges. The search should be conducted not only by particular states but also by regional and international organizations.”

“This is the reason why the Non-Aligned Movement is in such demand nowadays. Over 100 member states display their readiness for a constructive discussion of major problems, a compromise and a collective stand. I am confident that these very principles should make the core of international relations in the 21st century,” the greetings run.

“Russia and the Non-Aligned Movement are brought together by the understanding of their common responsibility for the world future, the wish to overcome the confrontation logic, and the choice of multilateral partnership,” Putin said. “Our relations have a long and rich history. They have been invariably based on mutual respect, a high level of mutual understanding, and the wish to cooperate. We act hand-in-hand at the main international forum, the United Nations. Fair decisions in the reform of the international organization in keeping with modern requirements will meet our interests.”

“The Non-Aligned Movement is not only a key partner to Russia. We view it as a key element of the modern architecture of international relations and hope for further interaction for the benefit of people of our countries and the civilization at large,” the greetings run.

I don't really mind India hobnobbing with the NAM, SCO, Russia, China, Iran every once in a while. Its our bargaining chip to make US let go of Pakistan. And if it doesn't work then its also a good idea to keep other options open.
