The book criticized what it called the United Nation's moral relativism in the face of (and occasional support of) genocide and terrorism that occurred between the moral clarity of its founding period and the present day.
THAT IS PUTTING IT MILDLY! THE UNITED NATIONS HAS SET THE WORLD ON ITS EAR AND INTENDS TO SUBJUGATE EVERY NATION ON EARTH TO FORCE ITSELF ON US ALL AS THE MASTER OF THE WORLD!
What prompted this blog was an article in TIME ,
<<A senior U.S. diplomat has gone on record chastising his international colleagues at the United Nations for being guilty of D.W.I. — Diplomacy While Intoxicated.
Joseph Torsella, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. for management and reform, has complained that delegates from other countries have been turning up drunk for delicate budget negotiations. One anonymous diplomat was quoted by AFP describing envoys who turned up for sessions “falling down drunk,” while another said how “on one occasion the note-taker who was meant to be recording the talks was so intoxicated he had to be replaced.”>>

Well, a shallow dive into the scandals that have come out of the U.N., and before that the "League of Nations" will make you cringe! That group has always been known for alcohol and drug abuse, for sex crimes, for corruption, for underhanded dealing with the poorer nations, for anything you may care to list! IT IS AN ORGANIZATION OF INHERENT EVIL! IT IS A BLIGHT ON THE WORLD! But, with "diplomatic immunity" some of its members have even gotten away with murder! LITERALLY!
There has been controversy and criticism of the U.N. and its activities since at least the 1950s, charges that the UN's aim was to establish a "One World Government."
Charles de Gaulle of France criticized the UN, famously calling it "le machin".
It's been called much worse by nations who have experienced the "peace and help" of this accursed "organization" run by the world's most powerful nations, at the expense and demise of nations that can find no way to single-handedly combat the U.N. within their borders. For many, U.N. involvement in their countries' affairs has brought mass murder, mass rape, mass torture, and massive loss of land, people, natural resources, water, and self-identification and basic human rights. The U.N. has trashed nations since its inception, and continues to in "new and improved" ways!
FEWER THAN 1/3rd OF AMERICANS WANT THE USA INVOLVED IN THE U.N., AND THAT POLL IS 6 YEARS OLD!
Controversy occurred in 1992 when U.S. Army medic Michael New protested the United Nations by refusing to wear the UN insignia on his uniform during a peacekeeping mission to Macedonia. Michael New faced a court martial and was subsequently discharged for his disobedience to his commanding officer;BUT to this day he (AND MILLIONS OF AMERICANS) still has the belief that he was correct to refuse service under the United Nations.
[SEE, AS ONE OF MANY REPORTS, http://www.wnd.com/2000/02/4019/ ]
OUR MILITARY MUST SWEAR ALLEGIANCE TO THE U.N. IF THEY ARE "CHOSEN' TO WEAR THOSE U.N. BLUE HELMETS!
Following are just some of the "policies" of the United Nations:
Following are just some of the "policies" of the United Nations:
- Control of all zoning matters in the United States and the control of our national parks, rivers and historical sites.
- Control over whether women are allowed to have babies.
- Control over the economic and judicial policies of all nations.
- Programs are being processed to create a tax on citizens of the United States as a permanent method of UN funding.
- The United Nation has its own Army and United States soldiers must swear allegiance to this foreign government. Remember Michael New.
The UNFPA provided aid to Peru's population control program in the mid-to-late '90s, when it was discovered and proven without a doubt that the U.N.'s Peruvian program had been engaged in carrying out coercive sterilizations. Other nations have accused the U.N. of the same thing!
There has been criticism that the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States), who are all nuclear powers, have created an exclusive nuclear club whose powers are unchecked. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) does not have true international representation. This has led to accusations that the UNSC only addresses the strategic interests and political motives of the PERMANENT members, especially in SO-CALLED "humanitarian interventions": for example, protecting the oil-rich Kuwaitis in 1991 but poorly protecting resource-poor Rwandans in 1994. Similarly, UN was quick to take a military action through NATO against Libya in 2011 against WHAT IT CALLED "a repressive regime", but as of November 2012, it still hadn't made any decision on whether to take any action against Syria.
The practice of the permanent members meeting privately and then presenting their resolutions to the full council as a fait accompli has also drawn fire. As Erskine Childers said, "the vast majority of members – North as well as South – have made very clear...their distaste for the way three Western powers behave in the Council, like a private club of hereditary elite-members who secretly come to decisions and then emerge to tell the grubby elected members that they may now rubber-stamp those decisions." [See: Empowering the Peoples in their United Nations – UN Reform – Global Policy Forum. Globalpolicy.org (1994-12-02).]
Another concern is that the five permanent members of the UN Security Council are five of the top seven largest arms exporting countries in the world.
IF THE GOAL OF THE U.N. REALLY WAS "WORLD PEACE", WHY GIVE 'PREFERRED STATUS' TO NATIONS WHO TRAFFIC IN ARMS?
Other critics and even proponents of the United Nations question its effectiveness and relevance because in most high-profile cases, there are essentially no consequences for violating a Security Council resolution. An early example of this was the Bangladesh liberation war and the 1971 Bangladesh atrocities committed by the Pakistan Army on Bengali Hindus. Critics of the UN argued that the UN was completely ineffective in preventing the genocide, and that military intervention by India was the only thing to stop the mass murder.
Another such case occurred in the Srebrenica massacre where Serbian troops committed genocide against Bosnian Muslims in the largest case of mass murder on the European continent since World War II. Srebrenica had been declared a UN "safe area" and was even protected by 400 armed Dutch peace keepers, but the UN forces did nothing to prevent the massacre. In the 21st century, the most prominent and dramatic example is the Darfur crisis, in which Arab Janjaweed militias, supported by the Sudanese government, committed repeated acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide against the indigenous population. Thus far, an estimated 300,000 civilians have been killed in what is the largest case of mass murder in the history of the region, yet the UN has continuously failed to act against this severe and ongoing human rights issue.
The U.N. has been accused by Dershowitz, human rights activists Elie Wiesel, Anne Bayefsky, and Bayard Rustin, historian Robert S. Wistrich, and feminists Phyllis Chesler and Sonia Johnson of tolerating antisemitic remarks within its walls. Israeli delegates to the UN "have been treated to a sickening litany of anti-Semitic abuse at the General Assembly, in the UN Human Rights Commission, and sometimes even in the Security Council" for decades.
UN conferences throughout the 1970s and into the 1980s often passed resolutions denouncing Zionism. These conferences often did not have anything to do with Middle East politics. UN documents of the period denied the existence of the Jewish people, the history of ancient Israel, the Holocaust, and the notion that Jews deserve the same rights granted to other groups.
TO NOT ONLY ISRAEL, BUT TO MANY OTHER NATIONS, IT HAS BEEN MADE CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT THE U.N. WILL NEVER ACT TO DO ANYTHING TO BETTER THEIR CAUSE. ASK AFRICAN NATIONS WHO HAVE PLEADED TO GET THE U.N. OUT OF THEIR NATIONS BECAUSE U.N. TROOPS HAVE BRUTALIZED THEIR PEOPLE! ASK HAITI! THE U.N. DENIES TRUE EQUALITY AND COMPASSION TO TOO MANY!
READ THIS CAREFULLY, PLEASE!
Reporters witnessed a rapid increase in prostitution in Cambodia, Mozambique, Bosnia, and Kosovo after U.N. and, in the case of the latter two, NATO "peacekeeping forces" moved in. In the 1996 U.N. study The Impact of Armed Conflict on Children, former first lady of Mozambique Graça Machel documented: "In 6 out of 12 country studies on sexual exploitation of children in situations of armed conflict prepared for the present report, the arrival of peacekeeping troops has been associated with a rapid rise in child prostitution."
In 2011, a United Nations spokesman confirmed 16 Beninese peacekeepers were barred from serving with them following a year-long probe. Of the 16 soldiers involved, 10 were commanders. They failed to maintain an environment that prevents sexual exploitation and abuse. Sexual misconduct by United Nations troops had earlier THAT YEAR been reported in Congo, Cambodia and Haiti, as well as in an earlier incident involving Moroccan peacekeepers in Côte d'Ivoire
<<Soldiers linked to crimes are often repatriated. In April, 16 peacekeepers from Benin were sent home from Ivory Coast — more than a year after Save the Children U.K. found that the soldiers traded food for sex with poor, underage girls. More than 100 troops from Sri Lanka were sent home from Haiti in 2007 because of widespread accusations of sex with minors.>>
<<a string of sex scandals from Bosnia to the Democratic Republic of Congo to Haiti involving peacekeeping missions has forced the United Nations to change the way it handles accusations of trafficking, rape and related crimes. But the issue still bedevils the institution. The issue has certainly not gone away.
The United Nations has focused serious attention on addressing sexual crimes among the more than 120,000 personnel it has deployed in 16 peacekeeping missions globally, including widespread training. But the question that diplomats, advocates and even some United Nations officials ask is why the efforts still lag in terms of investigating accusations and, most important, making sure those who send troops and contractors abroad hold them accountable.
Human rights experts and some member states fault the United Nations for leaving too much of the job of enforcing its “zero tolerance” policy announced in 2003 to the countries contributing troops. Individual cases and any disciplinary action are rarely made public.
But more than 200 such accusations remain unresolved, and the United Nations annual report on such crimes for 2010 noted that sexual activity with minors and nonconsensual sex represented more than half of reported accusations, little changed since 2008. Cases have come to light where peacekeepers paid children $1 or with candy to make a rape seem like prostitution.
Finally, efforts to gather information from troop contributors about legal or disciplinary action are often ignored.>>
The "Oil-for-Food Program" (OFF), established by the United Nations in 1995, under UN Security Council Resolution 986, became a scandal of global proportions. The program was de jure terminated in 2003 and de facto terminated in 2010. As the program ended, there were revelations of corruption involving the funds.
Before this, Security Council Resolution 706 of 15 August 1991 was introduced to allow the sale of Iraqi oil in exchange for food. The program used an escrow system. Oil exported from Iraq was paid for by the recipient into an escrow account possessed, until 2001, by BNP Paribas bank, rather than to the Iraqi government. The money was then apportioned to pay for war reparations to Kuwait, ongoing coalition and United Nations operations within Iraq. The remainder, the majority of the revenue, was available to the Iraqi government to purchase regulated items.
Shortly before US and British forces invaded Iraq, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan suspended the program and evacuated more than 300 workers 'monitoring' the distribution of supplies. On 22 May 2003, UN Security Council Resolution 1483 granted authority to the Coalition Provisional Authority to use Iraq's oil revenue. The program's remaining funds of $10 billion were transferred over a 6-month winding-up period to the Development Fund for Iraq under the Coalition Provisional Authority's control; this represented ONLY 14% of the programme's total income over 5 years.
Throughout its existence, the program was dogged by accusations that some of its profits were unlawfully diverted to the government of Iraq and to UN officials. These accusations were made in many countries, including the US and Norway.
In 2000, Dileep Nair, the UN corruption watchdog, wanted to determine the program's level of vulnerability. Sevan, along with UN Deputy Secretary-General, Louise Frechette, rejected any such investigation, claiming that it would be too expensive to be worthwhile. Benon Sevan of Cyprus, who headed the program, ORDERED THE SHREDDING OF YEARS' WORTH OF DOCUMENTS ABOUT THE PROGRAM! Accusations were made that skimmed profits were being used to buy influence at the UN and with Kofi Annan himself.
According to an interim report released on February 3, 2005, by former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker's commission, much of the food aid supplied under the program "was UNFIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION" . The report concluded that Sevan had accepted nearly $150,000 in bribes over the course of the program, and in 2005 he was suspended from his position at the United Nations as a result of the investigation of fraud in the program,
One of the earliest allegations of wrongdoing in the program surfaced on January 25, 2004, when al Mada, a daily newspaper in Iraq, published a list of individuals and organizations alleged to have received oil sales contracts via the UN's Oil-for-Food Program. The list came from over 15,000 documents which were reportedly found in the state-owned Iraqi oil corporation, which had close links to the Iraqi Oil Ministry.
Named in the list of beneficiaries were British MP George Galloway and his charity, the Mariam Fund; former French Interior Minister Charles Pasqua; and Shaker al-Kaffaji, an Iraqi-American businessman, India's foreign minister, Natwar Singh, was removed from office because of his role in the scandal. Many prominent Russian firms and individuals were also included on the al Mada list. Even the Russian Orthodox Church was supposedly involved in illegal oil trading. The former assistant to the Vatican secretary of state, Reverend Jean-Marie Benjamin, is said to have received rights to sell 4.5 million barrels (720,000 m3). The president of Oilexco Ltd, Arthur Millholland, whose name also appeared on the al Mada list, denied any wrongdoing, but confirms the charges that illegal surcharges were being paid to the Iraqi government by contractors. However, the al Mada list does not discuss bribes paid TO IRAQ – it discusses bribes paid to INDIVIDUALS so that they would support Iraq. Few deny that in Iraq, like in many third-world countries, bribes and kickbacks were regularly paid to the leadership in order to get contracts, but even those types of kickbacks should NOT occur in when a UN-run program was involved!
On 14 June 2005, two 1998 memos surfaced that appeared to link Kofi Annan to Cotecna Inspection S.A.
The scandal engulfing the United Nations Procurement Department and the Oil-for-Food Program allegedly involved Al-Qaeda finance operations. Fox News broke the story that Alexander Yakovlev, a Russian official in the UN Procurement Department, was involved; he later resigned and pled guilty to corruption charges. A report by UN investigator Paul Volcker, released in October 2005, found that the Australian Wheat Board, later AWB Limited, was the biggest single source of kickbacks.

WHY DID THE U.N. ENGAGE IN KICKBACKS, BRIBES, THEFT? SAME REASON ITS BLUE HELMENTS ENGAGE IN RAPE, TORTURE, MURDER, HUMAN TRAFFICKING?
USA TODAY PUBLISHED A 'THEORY' ON 02/13/2005 ... "A core of corruption" :
<<It's time to wake up to reality: The U.N. scandals are not unfortunate accidents. They are not incidental blots on the reputation of an otherwise idealistic organization. The scandals are inherent in the very structure of the U.N. It could be said that the U.N. itself is the scandal.
Since the 1990s, the United Nations has aspired to larger and larger responsibilities. From Bosnia to Cambodia, from Iraq to the Congo, U.N. officials have...sometimes even taken over the functions of governments.
But these officials don't answer to taxpayers or voters. They answer to the U.N. secretary-general — who, in turn, answers to dozens of different governments. Many of these governments are authoritarian, corrupt and unaccountable themselves.
And their dirty ways of doing business are almost inevitably absorbed by the world bodies in which they are given a decisive role.>>
Google "UN Peacekeeper 'sex for food' scandal", see how U.N. "peacekeepers" were withholding food from starving, under-aged girls in the Ivory Coast, until sexual acts were performed to as "payment" for food, or search for "United Nations Pedophilia Scandals", or for "Tech for Tyrants scandal", involving the quiet transfer of computers and related technology to Iran and North Korea by the UN’s World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the UN Development Program was caught transferring cash and dual use technology to the government of North Korea.
Google "abuses suffered by an Italian intern at the hands of officials of the UN Secretariat, UN-WFP and WHO". These allegations are contained in a criminal complaint made on 25 March 2008 to the Office of the Attorney-General of Italy against a senior UN-OHRM official. Google "U.N. sexual harassment".
GO LOOK AT WHAT THE U.N.'s DEMAND THAT ALL THE WORLD GET ONBOARD THEIR "CODEX ALIMENTARIUS" WILL DO...IT WILL ANNIHILATE BILLIONS! IT WILL TAKE AWAY A NATION'S RIGHT TO GROW AND CHOOSE AND CONSUME WHAT IT DEEMS BEST FOR ITS PEOPLE, AND THE USA SIGNED INTO THAT!
READ HERE: 'Codex Alimentarius More Evil Than Evil'
<<To avoid opposition Canada secretly approved ‘Codex Alimentarius’ behind closed doors. The Federal Government, Health Canada, medical establishment and national media have worked together to deliberately keep the entire Canadian population (over 30 million people) in the dark. For this reason, the majority of Canadians have no idea that from this year (2010) forward, we no longer have the freedom-to-choose natural health products or have the right-to-decide what we wish to eat, drink or medicate – in order to manage our health. Therefore, thousands of beneficial natural foods, proven safe & effective for centuries and still commonly used today (to combat serious illness or to maintain overall health) are being banned or their potency drastically reduced, making them virtually ineffective. Whilst ancient cultural traditions (such as African, Chinese, Indian, ‘Ayurvedic’ and other indigenous practices), also developed and used successfully for centuries will be lost forever.>>

<<The online publication Market Oracle reported in December, 2012, "Profiting from Your Thirst as Global Elite Rush to Control Water Worldwide" that “[t]he new ‘water barons’—the Wall Street banks and elitist multi-billionaires—are buying up water all over the world at unprecedented pace.” The report reveals two phenomena that have been gathering speed, and that could potentially lead to profit accumulation at the cost of communities and commons —the expansion of market instruments beyond the water supply and sanitation to other areas of water governance, and the increasingly prominent role of financial institutions. Familiar mega-banks and investing powerhouses such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Macquarie Bank, Barclays Bank, the Blackstone Group, Allianz, and HSBC Bank, among others, are consolidating their control over water. Wealthy tycoons such as T. Boone Pickens, former President George H.W. Bush and his family, Hong Kong’s Li Ka-shing, Philippines’ Manuel V. Pangilinan and other Filipino billionaires, and others are also buying thousands of acres of land with aquifers, lakes, water rights, water utilities, and shares in water engineering and technology companies all over the world.>>
READ NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC'S TAKE ON IT: 'Grabbing Water From Future Generations'
Documents from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund reveal that the IMF required nations:
1. to sign secret agreements of 111 items
2. in which they agreed to sell off their key assets - water, electric, gas, etc.
3. in which they agreed to take economic steps which are devastating to the nations involved
4. in which they pay politicians billions of dollars to Swiss bank accounts to do this transfer of a country's "fixed assets".
THEY REQUIRE NATIONS TO DO THIS! NO COMPLIANCE, NO FINANCIAL "HELP".
BUT THE NATIONS WHO HAVE DONE SO REGRET IT! ASK INDIA! ASK ANY NATION THAT HAS HAD TO SIGN OVER THEIR WATER TO THE IMF/WORLD BANK OR TO GET U.N. "AID"
NO, NO, THE UNITED NATIONS IS AN ABOMINATION! IT WAS CONCEIVED BY "SUPER-POWERS', IT IS MAINTAINED BY A RULING ELITE, AND IT IS DEDICATED TO LAND-GRABBING, WATER-OWNING, AND ENSLAVING US ALL TO ITS 'POLICIES'. IT THUMBS ITS NOSE AT THE IMPOVERISHED, AT THE LAWS OF NATIONS, AT HUMANITY IN GENERAL! IT SHOULD BE DISMANTLED, IT SHOULD BE ERADICATED LIKE A PLAGUE, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IT IS, A PLAGUE AGAINST HUMAN BEINGS, A PARTNER WITH THOSE WHO ARE DESPERATELY SEEKING GLOBAL POPULATION REDUCTION, WHERE ONLY THE "CHOSEN FEW" REMAIN! FIGHT AGAINST THE U.N. WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT!
