Now they are proposing to reform the United Nations.
How about throwing out most of its members?
December 2, 2004
Democracy is great, except when millions and millions of Americans go vote for
George W. Bush. Then they're plain stupid, or as one keeps hearing, "you
must realize" that the educated people live in Manhattan and San Francisco,
and in between are farmers in open grasslands, with dazed expressions, chain
saws and a "Dubya" vote they keep dropping into the ballot boxes.
Those farmers may look stupid, but they retained enough of their
wits to vote for Bush in spite of the very personal and vindictive
campaign of character assassination
organized by that film man and most European dailies and television channels
(who know better of course: they know that when dictatorships declare they
are not bothering anyone, just minding their own - very hi-tech
- business, building
steel tubes ["it's-for-da-orfanaj-in-turd-world-Palestine-sisters, now shut
da door or the fumes will come out," deputy minister "Freak" Abu
Batman tells the pU.N.y inspectors], well, they must be telling the truth.)
Now they are proposing to reform the United Nations. How about
throwing out most of its members, and not paying another dime in "aid" to the kleptocratic
scoundrels that parade as presidents and premiers in that body. "Non-aligned" my
butt: howzabout aligning their black butts for a good thrashing?
I suggest our
Third World colleagues, especially the ones south of the Aswan dam, climb
down from trees and get back to their desks to view a couple of
human rights reports
and economic statistics about their countries - a sobering read, I dare
say. I'm reminded now of the late Denis Thatcher's reported advice
to his wife Margaret
before a trip to Zimbabwe to meet with President Robert Mugabe, "don't give
the bugger a penny, Margaret." Marvellous, obviously he had a way with
Kofi Annan believes they should enlarge the Security Council.
I know what
I would do with my permanent seat and voting right: veto every word uttered
and Chinese ambassadors ("I would rike to say.." - SHUT UP - "But
dis is against plocejars.." - SHUT UP - "du shvein hundt kepitalist
entity.." SHUT UP etc..). What a ball we'd all have on the Security Council,
so much so that we might come to call it the Fun Council.
The United Nations,
if it really wants to help, should rent out space in its headquarters
to Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, to earn some of its keep. It's disgraceful how taxpayers
pay for a bunch of lazy men from Gujarat to lunch out at Cipriani's,
then return to doze and stare at their secretaries' buttocks. The European
worse of course, with its assortment of agencies and veritable Wehrmacht
of employees. That body of 25 states recently persuaded the Castro regime
to free six of 75
dissidents sent to jail last year for talking: it is a veritable human
A dear lady here in Barcelona keeps telling me, "I supported the Iraq invasion." But "I
was disgusted by what happened later." She didn't mean Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
and his gangsta-rappers decapitating people, blowing up nurses, doctors, or schoolchildren.
She meant the Abu Ghraib prison abuses. "They're only there for the
oil," she also stated, as if the disjointed claims somehow corroborate
one another. Are you sure? I asked. She was not. How exactly are the
to control the oil, can someone tell me?
A Swedish girl said about Abu Ghraib, "When I saw those pictures, I was
disgusted." Had she seen pictures of "abuses" in Iraq under Saddam
Hussein, or in Syria, and doubtless in Russia and China, I asked? She had not,
and found me smug and annoying. Still, I say, while one must respect the right
of people to have opinions, one is not obliged to respect every silly opinion.
People keep saying the Americans have caused an enormous mess
in Iraq. What utter rubbish - utter, utter rubbish. Are the Americans
laden with explosives into police stations and schools? Those who
wish to live in a peaceful,
lawful Iraq, like Kurds, the middle classes, or women, are waiting
for the shooting to stop so they can get on with their lives. They
As for the United Nations, it had no intention of changing what
had to be changed. Hans Blix was a weapons inspector, yes, but
on the wrong
sending the plumber to the CEO's office to follow up rumours that he may
have fiddled company accounts ("You've heard the rumours sir, I'm
going to have to check your plumbing!")
Yes those pictures were shocking. I wonder if there are pictures
of the report I read on this site, of the teenager being beaten
a cable for
eating during Ramadan or whatever. That would be something to show
to the European Union,
or the UN human rights body or wherever the Francophile Marxist
charlatans are hanging out. They may be shocked, should they care
to take a
look during a break
from their five-hour Sauerkraut-and-Pommery lunch. Still, on a
happier note: Condi's going to be Secretary of State.
