The final straw for the UN.
Diplomad, if you are reading this, we need you. I am not sure I can do this topic justice. If anyone had told me that I would be leading a piece on this site with an article from a web site called the Feminist Daily News I might have choked to death on one of Smiley's apple martinis. Luckily I am a beer guy, cause here it comes
:United Nations peace keepers stationed in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have been banned from having sex with local residents as a result of allegations of widespread sexual abuse of women and girls by peace keepers. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan sent a letter to the Security Council requesting a curfew and 100 more military police to monitor the abuse.
I can't even make fun of this. I am too sickened. Mr. Annan is, of course, "deeply shocked and outraged
:"At least seven cases of sexual exploitation and abuse have been substantiated against peace keepers serving in Bunia, in north-eastern Congo, where the UN is helping the country to recover from years of conflict. Children as young as 12 have been bribed with eggs, milk or a few dollars in exchange for sex, according to UN reports.
Deeply shocked and outraged? Are you kidding me? We are talking about 12 year olds who are starving to death and are being used for sex in exchange for a glass of milk. 20/20 is reporting that a UN official is running an internet pedophilia ring from the Congo. Luckily for the children of the Congo, Annan has announced a "zero tolerance policy
." Zero tolerance of what? Pedophilia? Trading humanitarian food stuffs for sex? Or embarrassing the embattled Koffi Annan? A question Mr. Annan- do you really think a man who trades food for sex with starving children gives a rat's ass about your policy? Nobody
in the UN cares about these kids- they want to protect their gravy train, period."Annan is having a tough time, especially in Washington, where his grip and management is being questioned," said a Western diplomat. "It is important that Annan shows that he is on top of things."
Mothers in Iraq should know how lucky they are that the UN pulled out of their country.
This has to be it got Annan and the UN. They are abusing children, who knows how many, that are counting on the UN for food and water, for the very basics of life.
I can't even write about this anymore tonight. I seriously think I might be sick. Search it on Google if you want to read more.
End of post. Hopefully the end of the UN.
