How Do You Spell Hypocrisy?
U-N-I-T-E-D  N-A-T-I-O-N-S

The United Nations has spouted the dogma of "human rights" for more than half a century. This is an act of pure public- relations genius. It has reduced half the world to a state of starry-eyed wonder, convinced that the U.N. is on a noble, selfless mission of love and peace.

What the United Nations does is another matter.

While talking the grand and glorious talk, it actually promotes policies that prevent human rights from blossoming in some of the most long-suffering nations on earth. Its policy on disarmament is a case in point -- and the horror of Iraq is an excellent example of how the U.N. uses such policies to support brutality.


The story of Iraq is one of 34 years of incomprehensible suffering. Iraqis have endured brutal, sadistic tortures, as well as daily life under a Stalinist security state. (For details see

Yet the U.N. actively and aggressively seeks to prevent these wretched people from freeing themselves (and, perhaps, from ridding the world of a beast, Saddam Hussein, who fosters September 11-style terrorism against the U.S.).

At its 2001 "Conference on the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects," the U.N. paid lip service to the right of individual or group self defense, while the conference's entire purpose was to shut off all trade in weapons, except that sanctioned by governments.

Now really, do you envision Saddam Hussein approving of the sale of militia weapons to the Kurds? Or to any of the anti- Saddam factions that fester in this country whose leader is so universally hated, even by his own people? Not in a million years. Yet how does the U.N. imagine these people could ever arm themselves against their oppressor, except through the "illicit," (that is, unregulated, free-market) trade U.N. conferees want to halt?

At the same time, the U.N.'s agreement on small arms, which was approved at that conference (, encourages entrenched "leaders" like Saddam to obtain all the military small arms they desire to crush their opponents.


Does it make sense to you -- to anyone -- that terrorist dictators should have all the arms they want, while potential freedom fighters must be prevented by a world government power from arming themselves?

Whose side is the United Nations on, anyway?

It's on the side of power -- its own and that of oppressive governments. Dominated by the very third-world nations that are among the worst abusers, the U.N. seeks to keep potential opponents down and in misery.

The U.N. has, and always has had, great PR. It's got everyone from UNICEF-collecting school children to network anchor people singing its praises.

But we'd all be a lot better off if the U.N.'s fans quit rhapsodizing and started looking at the reality.

Hypocrisy is spelled U-N-I-T-E-D N-A-T-I-O-N-S. But tragedy is spelled W-I-L-L-F-U-L I-G-N-O-R-A-N-C-E.
