UN Idiocy

From the PJ Tatler:

Did someone secretly swap reality with what the Onion writes as a parody of reality? There’s this little story about Maxine Waters apologizing to Castro (but the Tea Party can still “go to hell” since they’re the real enemy), and now this story about the UN’s nuclear watchdog swapping hands from Kim Jong-Il to the the world’s other rogue Communist family dynasty.

A top House lawmaker ridiculed the United Nations after Cuba assumed the rotating presidency of a nuclear arms control panel, replacing North Korea at the helm of the group.

Cuba succeeded North Korea on the 65-member U.N. Disarmament Conference in Geneva.

“It’s hard to fathom a more ludicrous image than Kim Jong Il passing the chair of the Conference on Disarmament to the Castro brothers, but that’s what passes for change at the U.N.,” said Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee

In reality there is no place in a global body for any nation not governed under American principals of government – most importantly that government obtains its power by the consent of the governed.  If a nation doesn’t have that, then it isn’t a real nation…the government isn’t a real government; such a ruling body is nothing more than a group of armed thugs latched upon a body of slaves.  Such ruling bodies have no moral authority whatsoever…not to even issue a parking ticket, let alone dealing with armament issues.

The whole concept of the UN is a fraud – cooked up by rather short-sighted bureaucrats in the waning days of World War Two where the four pillars of the global order were to be the United States, Great Britain, Chiang’s China and Stalin’s Russia – with France added in as an afterthought.  It was absurd from the get-go, and all that perpetuating it has done is create a gigantic amount of hypocrisy and lies regarding international affairs.  The actions of decent players in world affairs are hamstrung by a UN at the beck and call of tyrants.

That is not a world body for a nation with a sense of honor to belong to – get U.S. out of UN and have done with it.

More Nations Refusing to Attend UN’s Anti-Semitic/American “Durban III” Conference

From the Weekly Standard:

On Friday, the Czech Republic became the latest country to pull out of the upcoming U.N. “anti-racism” extravaganza known as Durban III. Canada, Israel, and the United States have already given thumbs down to the event, which the U.N. is bringing to U.S. shores on September 22, 2011. While Americans will be mourning the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the United Nations in New York will be “commemorating” the 10th anniversary of the first Durban conference – an outpouring of intolerance and xenophobia…

A good thing, too – and an update to the linked article indicates that Italy has also backed out. The whole purpose of the Durban conference is to attack Israel, the United States and the West in general.  No decent person, group or nation should have anything to do with it.  And if we had a government of any backbone at all, we’d demand the conference be held somewhere else…hold it in Zimbabwe, that nation which so greatly exemplifies the mindset of Durban.  True, might be hard to get running water and electricity there, but at least there won’t be any evil Americans or Israelis around.
