It's America's U.N. too (L.A.times: MiddleAmerica too ignorant & too stupid)
LA TIMES ^ | 061106 | (?)

Posted on 06/11/2006 11:42:08 AM PDT by BlueJ7

THERE ARE SOME THINGS DIPLOMATS simply don't do. Last week, Mark Malloch Brown, deputy secretary-general of the United Nations, did one of them, pointedly criticizing the United States, the Bush administration and, FOR GOOD MEASURE, Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Malloch Brown's taste in punditry aside, his concerns about the U.S. are WELL FOUNDED.

"too" stupid

The Grammar Nazi has struck again!!

(Well, OK, so it may not fall under the heading of grammar, exactly, but the Spelling Fairy is out on his lunch break, and I'm covering for him. Her. It.)

Frankly, if it's middle Americans who aren't supporting the UN's coddling of dictators, it's ineffectual policies, it's
'peacekeepers' who either can't or won't keep the peace, or, worse yet, arrive to rape and molest children while ignoring genocide and terrorism they have been sent to stop, or it's graft, corruption, anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, criminal diplomats claiming immunity....then it's not the Middle Americans that are stupid.

The context of Malloch Brown's remarks was an impending financial crisis. Bolton late last year succeeded in tying the U.N.'s funding to progress on management reforms; after June 30, the U.N. could be shut down unless reforms are passed.

The author says that like its a bad thing.

From the Slimes editorial:

"The context of Malloch Brown's remarks was an impending financial crisis. Bolton late last year succeeded in tying the U.N.'s funding to progress on management reforms; after June 30, the U.N. could be shut down unless reforms are passed. Yet Secretary-General Kofi Annan's sensible package of reforms, which would give him more power over personnel and budget matters, is opposed by developing nations. Congress is poised to cut off U.S. funding for the U.N., a move that would paralyze its peacekeeping, humanitarian and diplomatic activities."

"sensible package of reforms"


That just means that con man Annan will agree to only putting ONE hand in the till, instead of TWO.

This only reaffirms my belief that John Bolton was and remains the BEST choice for U.N. Ambassador, and I am personally going to be hoping and praying that the thieving crooks at the U.N. and their capo de crapo Kofi Anus, FAIL to make the reforms that are being demanded, and HOPEFULLY the Congress will find it's spine and cut off ALL funding to the U.N., preferably followed by a big fat eviction notice served on Mr. Koffee as he desperately tries to find a taxi after discovering that his nice lush U.N. limo has been repo'd.

Gives me warm fuzzies, now THAT visual does!

Well, it fits here.
Just as how criminals usually get the three-name treatment.
E.g., "Lee Harvey Oswald"

I thought that was the League of Nations created in S.F. which failed miserably.....even though the U.N. is of the same ilk, I don't think the U.N. was created in S.F.

LOA was created in Europe Pres. Wilson kept sailing back and forth then the Senate wisely decided to stay out of it. The U.N. as charter was signed in SinFreakSicko.

The U.N. is still a work in progress.

For how many decades can something useless be a work in progress before someone with a brain says, "F*ck it."?

Maybe Malloch Brown could make that point during his next appearance on "The O'Reilly Factor."

What does O'Reilly have to do with this?

The only international agency that works is INTERPOL, because they seem to have managed to keep ideologies out of it.

Name on single time in the last 40 years that the UN has done something that worked the way they planned it to. They have totally failed in every Peace Keeping situation. They have repeatedly demonstrated their corruption in scam after scam. They routinely appoint the fox to stand guard inside the hen house.
The United Nations needs to be a footnote in history right along with the League of Nations.
They are worthless arrogant idiots who believe that they will eventually run the world. They are currently after our firearms rights via an international treaty.
We should give them an eviction notice and withdraw our membership funds!!!

Well, there was Boutros Boutros-Ghali. You got a repeat name in there, not to be confused with Major Major Major Major, though.

And ole' Boutros, and staff, was still cut from the same corrupt cloth as the past, present, and [hopefully limited] future "adminstrators".

There. Fixed it.
And this three name guy is hoping/angling to be Kofi's replacement when his term is up.

BOR invited Malloch Brown on to explain his comments about [Rush Limbaugh,] FNC, and middle America.

It was declined, and BOR had some UN reporter on, expressing surprise that Malloch Brown declined to appear.

Sadly, the UN Charter was signed at the Fairmont. That's why there are all those flags in front of the hotel. There is a UN Charter room there but I haven't seen it.

I LOVE what this says about the U.N.: They are criticized for being elitist, anti-democratic and corrupt. Their response? To abuse office by accusing the "ignorant" masses of being too stupid to know what's good for them! Perfect case in point, guys...

Another is that it was largely the work and vision of Communist spy Alger Hiss. Now THERE'S an "Inconvenient Truth" someone should make a movie about.

Woah! Re-read my post. The UN sucks and blows at the same time. I was referring to Interpol, the international criminal info sharing agency.
