Don't Turn Iraq Over to the UN: "No UN Mr. Bush, and particularly no Canadians."
The National Post via ^ | April 11, 2003 | Elizabeth Nickson

Glad to hear that George Bush is still lukewarm on the United Nations. It appears that the age of bending over for this crowd of quasi-legitimate, whining third-rate bullies is fast drawing to a close. The sooner the better, for the Third World especially, since you and I can dodge the UN quite well thanks. So to George W., I say, let them hand out food and organize medical aid. Anything else? You do it, you're competent. And for heaven's sake, if there are Canadians begging to be included, like I don't know, say, Stephen Lewis, how about a nice firm loud bog off.

The UN appears, when judged on its results, to be the ultimate invention of the Canadian intelligentsia of the last 40 years, all hot air, organizational charts, inexorable hyper-inflation of self-righteous bureaucracy, endless re-writing of completely unreadable mission statements, opposition to anything that smacks of capitalism and endless strident demands for more cash. Looks very pretty, sounds very egalitarian, postures that the UN is the hope of mankind and devastates everything in its path. One could list pages of inept, compromised, expensive-for-us decisions based on bad sociology, worse science, and crazed geopolitics.

But let's, for the sake of simplicity, take AIDS in Africa, shall we? UNAIDS is headed up by Stephen Lewis, of that axis-of-do-gooders, that includes his son, Avi Lewis and daughter-in-law, Naomi Klein. Perhaps the best undertold story of the past two years (though exhaustively detailed by The Wall Street Journal) has been the juxtaposition of Lewis weeping crocodile tears on every TV station that will host him, while denying infant formula to breastfeeding HIV positive African women because the formula was from a thieving lying multinational, and not just one thieving lying multinational either. From 1997 through 2001, UNICEF, of which Lewis was number two until he moved to the top AIDS position, turned down millions of tins of formula from Nestle, Wyeth and several other companies, on the grounds of what can only be called virulent anti-capitalism. Finally, a pilot project of 25,000 women in three countries was launched. Do I need to remind you that in South Africa, so many people are dying that they are burying people vertically?

If we turn Iraq over to the UN, we will almost certainly spawn another generation of America-hating, capitalism-hating, science-hating young men and women who will seek to kill us. One destructive ideology will be replaced by another. We will end up paying for it, and democracy in the Middle East will be set back another 50 years. No UN Mr. Bush, and particularly no Canadians. It is time the UN and the running dogs of socialist statism were held to account by the free world.

Canada is beginning to make me feel tired all over.

If we're ever going to get out of this corrupt, Anti-American outfit, the time for action is NOW! Write, email, fax and phone every politician you can think of and INSIST we get this EXPENSIVE millstone off our necks! Get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US!

Our politicians are already starting to capitulate! Terms like "legitimacy", legal authority, etc being used as an excuse to once again bring us under their yoke!

And all the while, not ONE word about the treatment of US POWS. Not one word! Oh...I'm wrong...they came out with the statement reminding BOTH sides to adhere to the Geneva Conventions!

Enough is enough! It's now or never! We don't need LEGAL authority...we already have it!

Now the World Court in Brussels is looking into the "legitimacy" of the reconstruction contracts the US has alreadyt negotiated! The absolute GALL of it!

It's past time we were shun of this evil group!

A poll that asked

Rebuilding Iraq

Should the U.S. be solely in charge of rebuilding Iraq?


68% Yes
32% No

No UN!

NewsCenter 13 Poll: Rebuilding Iraq Should the U.S. be solely in charge of rebuilding Iraq (WI.)

Some people are like blisters......They show up after the work is done!

Yes the good old USA should be in charge of rebuilding The UK can help too.

No pain No gain!

Let’s take a look at UN/US involvement:

Korean police action - Not a win
Vietnam police action -loss
Haiti-- loss
Iraq 1992 - Well were Back there aren’t we

Let’s now look without the UN

Revolutionary war--Win
1812---- Win
Spanish America---Win
Afghanistan- On it’s way to a win ( If we keep the UN & Rats out)
Iraq 2003- On it’s way to a win.....................”

There are more wins...But let’s not make the list too long!

One other interesting fact. All those losses had a “D” in the White House. Plus those big ones WWI WWII

Re:Iraq 1992: I wonder if we would have had to go back to Iraq if Schwartzkopf hadn't agreed to allowing ARMED helicopters for Saddam in the surrender terms. He may have been a good general, but he was a lousy negotiator.
