I wouldn't get too carried away, if I were you. If you think the 'radical reforms' he has in mind will be benevolant in nature you have got another thing coming.

Wow.

I was impressed.

The illusion of something noble and what seems to be an intelligent answer to obvious problematic issues always seems to disquise the initial need for power and control.

But I would love to see the genicide tactics in Sudan to cease; unfortunately most people don't want to step in because there is nothing to gain - so my question is, what is to gain here for the noble one?

That was a pretty good read.
However, and as strange as it might sound, I do think a change in the UN Charter could be a good thing. If it had something to deal with terror, and supporting it, could be a good thing.
I have my doubts if it will happen, but oh well, to every thing turn turn.

He also argued that a UN with powers to sideline countries pursuing narrow national interests would be better placed to adequately focus on the world's many problems -- among them, climate change, slaughter in Sudan's Darfur, and the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict.

Mr Blair argued the UN needs the "capacity to intervene militarily," citing the need to stop the killing in Sudan's Darfur region as an example.

Mr. Blair said the secretary general should also be given increased powers over management and spending, many of which reside with the General Assembly, where developing countries hold a majority.


nice. headline should be 'UN Worldcop program proposed by Fabian Globalist Antony Blair'

Heh, Whoops! I sincerly apologise. I thought you were saying "Yeah this is great, nice one Blair". I should have payed more attention to you when you wrote 'the cats out of the bag' in the title. I'm such a Wreck-Mutant sometimes.

Hehe. Well, if I were planning on resisting, I wouldn't say it on this forum, that's for sure.

Probaby. But these guys want a civil war. They know that the chances are slim for either side.

"Occasionally, I look at our international institutions and think as I do about (the British) welfare state: the structures of 1946 trying to meet the challenges of 2006."


Wouldn't any of these things be addressable if the US and UK made a big enough stink about them inside the UN???

Also, what does he think that the UN can do, or rather what reforms are needed? The UN sponsors mediation between the Arabs and Israelis. Short of taking a side, what can it do?

And on Sudan, since the british and americans have the most advanced militaries and best ability to get involved in the Darfur, what does he think a responsible reform would be? Any UN military action would have to involve the UK and US as the main body. Just look at what went wrong in Somalia, there was reliance upon the UN troops. The 'command' was seperated into different units. Is blair suggesting that the US and UK have some of its military divisions put under direct UN command?
