FAQ’s for the UN…
I don’t know how I ended up on the UN web site, but I found myself looking at the FAQ’s (frequently asked questions). I noticed that none of the questions asked were questions I’ve ever heard addressed to the UN. I mean, who really is going to ask how to send money to the UN?
I found an email address that I could send questions in and get answers. Now I’m not one to let an opportunity like this pass, and plus I have few more frequently asked questions that they failed to address in the FAQ. Here are the questions that I emailed to the UN in bullet form:
- If a country fails to abide by UN sanctions placed on them, what is the next step?
- If the answer to that question is to put in place more sanctions and that fails, what is the next step?
- How many sanctions can you impose on a country before you must take military action?
- In Article I of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it’s says, "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood." How does this reflect the current members of the UN, when not all of its members have a free society, or act brotherly towards anyone? Shouldn’t some kind of standard be set so not any communist regime, or evil dictator be allowed to join?
- Why does the UN hate Jews so much?
- How come the US provides most of the financial backing and manpower for the UN, but has the same veto power as France?
- Why would anyone in their right mind let France sit on any council that has "security" as part of it’s name?
- China is also a member of the Security Council, but from what I can tell they do not follow any part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Shouldn’t a country with veto power at least abide by this Declaration?
- Do you find it odd that the two countries that vetoed action against Iraq(u) have also been implicated in the oil for food scandal? If this scandal pans out and criminal charges are brought against the representatives will their country lose their seat on the Security Council?
- Is there any real punishment for corrupt bureaucrats at the UN?
I’ll let you guys know if they write me back. I wonder what kind of answers I’ll get.
Update: This is the reply I got back from the UN: Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: email@example.com ...That figures. Like anyone at the UN is accountable for anything.
