Beasts in Blue Berets
by William Norman Grigg

“We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money,” warned Arthur Schlesinger Jr. in the July/August 1995 issue of Foreign Affairs. Schlesinger had taken to the pages of the flagship journal of the Council on Foreign Relations to vindicate the dubious proposition that the United Nations military represents the thin blue line dividing peaceful civilization from savagery—in short, our planetary police. But what happens when the planetary police run amok and become the agents of bloodshed? When local police abuse their power, the abused have avenues of redress. From what body can those abused by the planetary police seek justice? The escalating scandal of unpunished atrocities committed by UN “peacekeepers” illustrates that the planetary police are beyond accountability.

“Perhaps our leaders should put the question to the people: what do we want the United Nations to be?” Schlesinger wrote. “Do we want it to avert more killing fields around the planet? Or do we want it to dwindle into impotence, leaving the world to the anarchy of nation-states?” Critics of the UN should eagerly embrace such a debate—provided that a copy of the above photograph is made available to all participants. First published in the United States on the cover of the June 24th issue of the left-wing weekly Village Voice, the photograph depicts two Belgian paladins of the new world order giddily holding a Somali child over an open flame. Other series of photographs depict UN soldiers kicking and stabbing a Somali, and another soldier apparently urinating on the Somali’s dead body; yet another shows a Somali child being forced to drink salt water, vomit, and worms. A second group of photos published in the July 15th Village Voice shows the dead bodies of bound Somalis—what appears to be the work of a death squad.

One atrocity not caught on camera involved the “punishment” of a Somali child by placing him in a metal container and withholding water from him for two days; predictably, the relentless African heat killed the child. One Belgian UN soldier testified that it was a regular practice to use metal boxes as prison cells, and that other Somalis probably died similarly gruesome deaths.

Disgusting, to think that we had to ask these people to go into Iraq. We do everything in our power to prevent these atrocities, and they're paid to commit them.

All you'd have to do is send a U2U to one of the moderators for this thread (listed on the forum front page as cassini, OzChris, f16falcon, TheBandit795, Toltec, K_OS & ultra_phoenix), include the URL address of this thread (copied & pasted from the "Address" box near the top of your browser) & ask to have this moved...

If you're in a hurry, it also might not hurt to look near the bottom of the topic-list on the forum front-page & see who's currently online...If you see the name of one of the Mods there, U2U whoever is already logged in.

The main problem is that you never know when one of the moderators will even get around to *looking* at any particular thread, let alone read a request to move it (Simply *because* ATS has gotten so large recently) unless you bring it to someone's attention directly.

Did this help you any?...

Yes, it's unfortunately true. They did it. They've been released by the Belgian Military Justice System.
