ENOUGH!!!

Lets hear 'WHY' some of feel that the UN is not worth it(whatever 'it' might be), and then we have a discussion or our hands..


REPLY: One only has to look at their record since their change from the League of Nations to the United nations. They're good at delivering food. sometimes. Need I remind you of the Oil for Fraud program?? The world would be a better place if one of the planes had missed and hit their building.

Many talk about the NWO... well, THAT is what the UN wants. Geez.... go read Agenda 21.

You've not heard of UN "Peacekeepers" raping women and children in Africa, and Mr. Coffee says nothing.


".... Israel has been a gross human rights violator for some 50 years."

REPLY: Hmmmmm care to remind us of when the last time Isreali people suicide-bombed civilians?

I heard that the UN knew that their "Peacekeeper" Station on the border was occasionaly hiding Hezbubble members, and allowing them to shoot at those in Iraqi territory.

Hmmmmm... sort of puts the end to Mr. Coffee's story, doesn't it?

I'll provide a link asap.

Also absent is the fact that the conclusion that the UN is anti-Semitic because of space monkeys that tell them to be so. And for the same reason.

Im sorry but that is no where near to fulfilling the burden of proof required to paint the entire UN as anti-semitic. What the hell is a space monkey?

What is absent from your analysis is attention to the fact that the UN has never said squat about Arafat's sponsor of terrorism.

I wonder if the UN flag will be flown at half-mast, and if Kofi Annan will be "deeply moved" to give a "special tribute" to Ariel Sharon when he finally passses from this world.

Why should they give a special tribute to a convicted war criminal like Sharon?

You're right it doesn't prove anything. Except that one side relies on factual information, while the other relies mostly on rhetoric, which is fine if you judge an issue based on who screams the loudest.

Are you assuming that what people link to is considered fact? Did you have any criteria to base your tally on? Did you examine the voracity of the links submitted in this thread? If I linked to a wikipedia that was written by some biased authour would you throw that into my 'side' as a factual link?

What you are calling rhetoric I class as people's opinions, which is what this discussion board solicits. We dont want people to only quote external sources and copy and paste URLs, we want to hear what they think and what they have to say. That is to be backed up with pertinent quotes and links if needed, but not necessary.

No one is forcing anyone to believe what you or I say, that is up to the reader to decide. If you feel you have said as much as you can on the topic and that you are convincing, fine, leave it at that. But dont try and paint some kind of superior picture of your 'side' based on the number of URLs posted or quoted in this thread, that's useless.

My fault. I thought that you were capable of seeing the sarcasm directed against your statement that "israel has been a gross violator of human rights for over 50 years"

Convicted war criminal?
And Yassar Arafat, who did receive a "special tribute" and a UN flag flown at half mast, was a humanitarian?:shk:

It's plain to see which side your sentiments fall on, regardless of your attempt to paint yourself as a moderate.

I still see no proof given by yourself as to why the UN is anti-semitic. Do you want to provide some proof or do you want to retract that statement?

Yes, shall I educate you on it?


The Kahane Commission, an Israeli body convened to investigate the Sabra and Shatila mass murders, found Sharon to be complicit in the crimes, and he was fired by Prime Minister Begin as Defense Minister shortly after the report's release.

Ariel Sharon: Profile of an unrepentant War Criminal
Do you know what the Sabra and Shatila mass murder/massacre was? It was the mass slaughter of unarmed men, women and children in Lebanon by forces allied to Israel. Israeli forces surrounded the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps and prevented any refugees from escaping the slaughter. So yes, Ariel Sharon is a convicted war criminal who was sacked from the position of Defence Minister by Israeli Prime Minister Begin.

I have no love for Arafat either. I didnt shed a tear when he died.

Is it fair to say that you support Ariel Sharon and his fellow Zionists? You think Ariel Sharon should be honoured by the UN. So you're a supporter of a war criminal?

See, its obvious you didn't even look at the links provided, to verify their data yourself. None was to Wiki, and the one of dubious credibility was condemning Israel. The rest were legitimate news sources and official documents. At least I read the links posted by those whose views differ from my own. Why didn't you do the same?

We dont want people to only quote external sources and copy and paste URLs, we want to hear what they think and what they have to say. That is to be backed up with pertinent quotes and links if needed, but not necessary.

Opinion, backed by nothing, yet regurgitated again and again is rhetoric. I don't want people to quote external sources only either, but how do you expect to change anyone's mind if you don't? So, I like to see opinions backed up by fact. It may change my mind. And if you don't expect to effect change, then just blog, where you don't get so much feedback, and you can vent all you like without uncomfortable truths popping up.

Well, we've got one person demanding that we prove that the UN is worthless, and you condemning the sources that do. And you are right, it is up to the reader to decide. I just find facts more convincing than verbiosity. By comparing the numbers of cited sources, I was hoping that instead of whining about it, someone would get off their duff and back up the anti-Israeli argument. Aparently that requires more work than just mouthing dissaproval. If this were an academic paper, intelligence, or legitimate news, sources would be everything. So don't complain. Do the work.

Since you've been a member for only one month you might not be aware that I source everything I quote.

But you seem to be under some serious misconception that everything that comes from "official" news sources or publications are fact. That is just not true. I'm sure you'd offer the idea if I got a quote from some mainstream publication/news source that differed from your own views. And the kicker is that I would not disabuse you of that criticism because you'd be RIGHT.

Also im not going to be dragged into the minutia of 200+ posts, I simply do not have the time. If you feel you've accomplished some kind of victory by tallying URLs and arbitrarily ruling on their voracity then im in no position to challenge it. I just think you're wasting your time.

Ouch. You got me. I'm new, and dumb as a brick, to boot. Most people source their quotes. I'm just suprised you quoted. You get a point!

Its a shame, really. At least I read your posts, and did everyone else the same courtesy before replying.

It wasnt an attack. You feigned surprise that I sourced a quote. I was giving you a context that I always source my quotes.

I read them all, im just not going to go over them all with a fine tooth comb on a fools errand of tallying up the amount of URLs and pontificating on which are "factual" and which are "false". Gee, I'd have to be paid to do something like that!

I agree, Sharon was no angel...also a complete hinderer of peace...his complicity in the Phalangists mass murders in Lebanon is undeniable.

Historically speaking… the Kahn commission found that Sharon could be indicted for war crimes under customary international law/Nuremberg Principles. The Kahn Report never issued/handed down any sanctions against those culpable…only findings...also the Kahn commission never had a judicial mandate to exact convictions. Sadly, no trials ever followed after the findings.

Sharon was asked to resign and he did…yet what is never mentioned is… he remained in the cabinet as a minister joined two separate top commissions on Lebanese affairs and defense. Iran began calling for his indictment in 2002 as did numerous civil rights groups etc. Belgium found they could not try his indictment in 2002 and again in 2003.

A criminal by every definition of the word, but the “convicted” part has been used to often without much merit….he should be remembered as a war criminal period.

The ICC should have tried Sharon long ago...

BBC 2003 Article that touches on the topic.

I've gotten off topic, and I'll admit that the score keeping was sarcastic. It is just that some of the arguments have begun to sound repetative, and it is tiresome when someone has gone to the trouble of supplying outside information and getting nothing but a "nuh-uh" by way of reply. And I'm not talking about myself. Others on here have done a lot of work, and posted some good information. I apologize for being sarcastic towards you about posting, instead of focusing on the issue.

And if I am getting paid, all you have to do is convince others that I'm wrong. A salary won't change facts.

It blows my mind this logic. Also i think it clearly shows the propaganda machine in play. Israel bombs a u.n. building, yet it the "terroists" fault.


REPLY: Well, there it is, folks. Just one example of many who would rather rant than do some digging for facts. And, yes, I'm damn well going to say "I told you so."

UNITED NATIONS — An apparent discrepancy in the portrayal of events surrounding the deaths of four unarmed U.N. observers in Lebanon threatens to unravel Secretary-General Annan's initial accusation that Israel "deliberately" targeted the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon.

By the way, Hezbubble is now using rockets, from Iran, that have a 43 kilometer range. It has a 50 kilo warhead that is filled with ball bearings, to exact as much civilian damage as possible.

Below is an interesting interview with Maj. Gen. Lewis Mackenzie about Maj. Kruedener and ‘other emails’ about Hezbollah setting up at around UN positions..

From the interview:
“…What he [Maj. Kruedener] was telling us was Hezbollah soldiers were all over his position…”

“…They [Hezbollah] use the UN as shields knowing that they can’t be punished for it...”

Puhleeze... General Mackenzie is a twice-failed political hack of the same persuasion as the current regime in Ottawa... on the CTV payroll as a consultant and spouts the same made in Tel Aviv, rubber-stamped in DC junk. I served with him in Cyprus as a direct sub-ordinate when he was an up-and-comer... not a well liked or particuloarly trusted individual. McBackstabber. I can't wait for his offer to appear at a pro-Lebanon rally materializes. It may be entertaining to watch. I will wait for the investigation and when it reports... we'll have a better idea? BTW Did you know DND has a policy that dis-encourages/prevents folks from talking to the press about such things? Perhaps the squeaky wheel got greased? Accident my foot. Hmmm, CTV was the email recipient, "Blue-Lew" on the payroll...

REPLY: All you wrote might in fact be true and factual. However, it's what Maj. Kruedener (and others) had to say about what happened that matters.

Here's a rather interesting photo of Mr. Coffee with...... why, what the heck???? It's the head honcho of Hezbubble. What's odd about this is that Hezbubble is not a country, so why so chummy? That was a rhetorical question; those in the know, know EXACTLY why.

And another showing a Hezbubble and Un flag flying side-by-side outside of one of the observation buildings. Why am I not surprised?

Yes, General Mackenzie's interpretation of supposed "code" (baloney, you call it in - it is what it is) is just that... a dis-informing guess. Like the targetting? There should be "Hell-to-pay", but I really think this'll go "under-rug-swept". Maybe the Chinese will pursue it but I doubt it.

Thanx, you are correct,

REPLY: So you refuse to accept what the in-theater soldier said? What's up?.... did Mackenzie bust you down to private at some point? Did you tell him what you thought of him to his face? Perhaps the "code" mentioned is something new to you for some reason?
