Out of the UN…

Filed under: International — Bunker @ 4:57 pm

…and the UN out of the US. I don’t see how we can draw any other conclusion. The UN is staffed by the hoi polloi of the international set, and live the good life in New York at the expense, primarily, of US taxpayers. They seem to view us as serfs, as they do their own countrymen.

During the Cold War, the UN actually served a function–to lend credibility to disputes between the First World and Second World. It became the forum for the Third World to exert some influence, although that influence was limited by the authority of the main players: France, China, Soviet Union, Great Britain, and the United States, the five surviving governments of WW II. France often sided with their socialist brethren.

With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the UN became more a sounding board for dictators hoping to fill the void. And it became a vehicle for “restraining” the last remaining super-power. The drive for a European Government is being championed by the same people who believe a World Government is the best of all possible outcomes. Any sign of strength in the US is viewed as a threat.

Big Trunk points out what I view as the final straw:

…collusion between foreign entities, the MSM, and the Democratic Party to change U.S. policy through disinformation.

The foreign entities, including Britain’s Guardian, are mostly in the UN. Kofi Annan and many others, including his son, apparently made millions off the Oil-for-Food Program which Dubya so rudely ended. Kofi himself has made his contempt for our President known. Others have been more reluctant to go on the record, perhaps out of fear they’ll end up back home rather than in the Big Apple. But they speak in whispers, and those sounds come through clearly, if only anonymously.

The latest issue, to which Big Trunk alludes, is detailed in two articles he cites. In the first, Clifford May makes it clear that people in the UN want Bush gone, and will do what they can to help CBS, The New York Times, and the Kerry campaign unseat him. And they are using what may be imaginary stockpiles of explosives to try.

In a related article, Dr. Nile Gardiner of the Heritage Foundation, points the finger at the nuclear watchdogs at the UN:

There is certainly no shortage of tensions between the IAEA and the Bush Administration. Since U.N. inspectors led by Hans Blix were withdrawn from Iraq ahead of the U.S.-British liberation of the country in 2002, relations between the IAEA and the U.S. government have been stormy. The United States has consistently opposed the return of U.N. inspectors to Iraq, despite repeated requests, and has been critical of the IAEA
