"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Gerald Warner on Obama's UN Address

Not surprisingly, Gerald Warner is not a fan of the UN. I'll let him explain in his own words.

From his Telegraph Blog: "The United Nations is the favourite platform for posturing, self-advertising hot-air merchants, so it was a given that Barack Obama would treat it to an especially epic, ozone layer-demolishing emission of Obamaguff today and he did not disappoint. 'We have sought in word and deed a new era of engagement with the world.' Aw, puleeze! 'I say this not to sow fear, but to state a fact: the magnitude of our challenges has yet to be met by the measure of our action.' No kidding?"

And a little later, "Looked at one way, The United Nations has been the largest crime syndicate on earth. A founding member of its Security Council, the former Soviet Union, had 20 million murders to its credit. This was dwarfed in 1971 when Red China, still benevolently ruled by Chairman Mao, joined, with 65 million deaths on its hands. In that environment, North Korea, with its puny 2 million murders, seemed almost a liberal democracy. Not only are mass-murdering dictatorships freely admitted, but the UN displays a sense of humour in allocating them internal responsibilities.

"Thus, Cuba (16,000 summary executions, 100,000 political prisoners) has repeatedly been elected to the UN Human Rights Commission. In 2003, Libya was elected to chair the Commission, whose members included Algeria, China, Cuba, Sudan, Syria and Zimbabwe. It is a pity the Third Reich was no longer available – it could have chaired a commission on race relations."

[...]

"The corruption at the UN would make a Sicilian godfather wrinkle his nose in distaste. The Oil-for-Food scandal netted $21bn for UN hoods and their associates, while the infant mortality rate in Iraq soared. That was only the tip of the iceberg: the other scams are multifarious. The UN does not even know what its expenditure is or how many people it employs – a fiscal dyslexia reminiscent of the European Union."

Read the whole thing. It's pretty short and Warner's rhetoric is almost always entertaining.
