Imagine going about your life knowing that, at any given moment, you and everyone you know could be wiped out without warning at the push of a button.
This was the reality for millions of people during the forty-five year period after World War II now known as the Cold War. Matthew A. Jordan explains the history behind the peak of all this panic, the thirteen days of the Cuban Missile Crisis. in the video below.
Your tax dollars at work.
The UN won’t stop North Korea’s W.M.D. program.
But it will help it with its nerve gas patents.
Because that’s what the UN does.
For more than a year, a United Nations agency in Geneva has helped North Korea prepare an international patent application for production of sodium cyanide, a chemical used to make the nerve gas Tabun, which has been on a list of materials banned from shipment to that country by the U.N. Security Council since 2006.
The U.N. Security Council is clearly an oxymoron.
But that’s okay.
The UN will help North Korea with a patent for a base ingredient for a banned weapon.
That it banned.
So the UN is like all bureaucracies. Except deadlier.
The World Intellectual Property Organization, or WIPO, has made no mention of the application to the Security Council committee monitoring North Korea sanctions, nor to the U.N. Panel of Experts that reports sanctions violations to the committee, even while concerns about North Korean weapons of mass destruction, and the willingness to use them, have been on a steep upward spiral.
Of course not.
For its part, a WIPO spokesperson told Fox News by email, in response to the question of whether it had reported the patent application to the U.N. sanctions committee, only that the organization “has strict procedures in place to ensure that it fully complies with all requirements in relation to U.N. Security Council sanction regimes.”
Yes. It probably does at that. Sadly enough.
There really is no reason for the UN to exist.
It’s a leaning tower of bureaucracy that serves no useful function that couldn’t be filled by giving PCP to turtles.
It’s incredibly useful to dictators and no one else.
