I have never trusted the UN. I, personally, would like to see the USA kick them out of our country altogether, withdraw our funding, and help in the dismantling of the entire organization. IMO, it is full of corruption, lies, distortions, and is a big honey pot for international thieves posing as do gooders. Enough of that rant.

I have heard many asking how did N. Korea pull off such a sophisticated hack on Sony. With all the international sanctions on N. Korea for years, how are they managing to acquire the sophisticated equipment and techniques to accomplish this technical fiasco, not to mention the sophisticated knowledge and equipment needed to carry out the design and testing of nuclear warheads.

Have you ever noticed that when something is on the UN's agenda such as a Cyber security treaty, something Big always happens to further it? .....just like the civil unrest that was promulgated in Ferguson over the Michael Brown shooting. The UN small arms trade treaty goes into effect Christmas Eve and even though this treaty itself does not push for the disarming of American citizens, other "programmes of action" do and they ARE mentioned in the treaty. I believe the UN's henchmen would have liked nothing better than a full out race war, so they could step in as "peacekeepers" and implement their real global agenda. America seems to be a big thorn in their side. But, I digress.

Anyway, I found this interesting. Does this annoy anybody else and make you wonder about the UN's agenda?

UN under WORLD INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ORGANIZATION shipped sophisticated computers and high-tech equipment to North Korea violating their own sanctions.


A prominent international legal scholar has joined up Congressional investigators to demand a probe of an incident in which an obscure branch of the United Nations shipped sophisticated computers and other high-tech equipment to North Korea and violated U.N.'s own sanctions against that regime.

John Yoo, who was a national security expert during the first Bush administration, and is now a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and specializes in international and U.S. constitutional law, has demanded for an "independent, external commission" to investigate the incident.

Yoo said the equipment shipped by the Geneva-based World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), "would allow North Korea to carry out simulations necessary to design highly sophisticated nuclear warheads...without the need for testing." According to Fox News, the under-the-radar shipments of Hewlett-Packard computers and servers by WIPO shipments took place in late 2011 or early 2012, and were financed through the Beijing offices of the United Nations Development Program ( UNDP).

Yoo claimed that the equipment transfer gives the regime of fledgling leader Kim Jong Un a significant boost in hardware and software "that could quite conceivably contribute" to North Korea's nuclear-related programs. He stressed the WIPO shipments, which took place in late 2011 or early 2012, were in violation of even stiffer U.S. sanctions that ban all computer exports to North Korea due to its role as proliferators of nuclear weapons technology and ballistic missile know-how.


Also, another dot that is connected with all this is A2K...Access to Knowledge movement.


In December 2011, WIPO published its first World Intellectual Property Report on the Changing Face of Innovation, the first such report of the new Office of the Chief Economist. WIPO is also a co-publisher of the Global Innovation Index. In April 2012, Fox News first reported the shipment of computers by WIPO to North Korea and Iran, in an alleged violation of U.S. and U.N. sanctions, triggering an investigation by the U.S. State Department. WIPO reacted by stating that the shipment did not violate the U.N. sanctions against North Korea, and that this was "part of WIPO’s standard technical assistance program to developing countries",[

No word then of just how sophisticated these HP machines were? If you go with the flow, the Sony attack was, "Wery seemple" according to some strange guy on UK's Newsnight right now, and in the light of Obama's statement on NK's hacking of Sony.

Im sure they could get anything they wanted from China....and of course America has to hurry up and bad mouth the UN any way possible since there may be inquiries into the recent torture report to include indictments.

LOL @ the Seoul born South Korean John Yoo, making claims about DPRK.



WIPO deny violating sanctions.

So until we see proofs instead of claims it wouldn't last a day in any Court.

If we can't outclass North Korea in every aspect, we deserve whatever comes. Pound him daily. Pound him hard. We know why they don't. He's useful to have as a distraction and scapegoat. One day we'll all know why. That day is coming real soon. These bastards should be writing comic books.
