Received my first issue of NewsMax and it has some interesting information abut the UN. Sept 2001 Kofi Annan attended a world conference on racism which was attended by Arafat, Fidel Castro and others. Anan praised Thabo Mbeki leader of ANC for what a good job he's doing. Apparently ignoring the traditional method that ANC used to kill their civilians during the 80's called necklacing. Basically filling the belly with gas and burning a tower around their neck. These are the type of people Annan holds up as champions of human rights. Rwanda where the UN convinced the Tutsis to turn in all their guns. Tutsis were wiped out by the Hutus after the UN promised them their protection. UN didn't say anything bad about it much less do anything about it. Also speaks about the travesties in the balkans, about how their sex trade is much more prevalent now that UN peacekeepers are in charge. The Scotsman, a Scotland national newspaper, reported that UN peacekeepers were their primary customers. Cambodia, China slave labor, Palestinian Intifada, 1 million massacered in Rwanda, Mass murder in Zimbabwe etc. However let one bomb go off a little too big in Iraq by the US, or in Palestine by the Israelites and the UN are all over that. Reminder they elected Libya to chair the UN Human Rights commission. Get real. Now they are trying to stop anyone from investigating their oil for food scandal outside of the UN control, so they can cover it up. I tried to take about 100,000 words and condense everything to simple paragraphs and I'm sure I did a bad job of it. Additional news items by the same writer that wrote this that I read has another story on the internet http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2002/5/12/170115.shtml My point --- the UN is not fit to rule the world and they most deffinitely don't hold the moral high ground.
