McCain proposes League of Democracies
This new policy has been attacked and accused of spreading American values across the world. Some feel it is a neo-conservative brainchild. In fact, I
admire and defend this idea.
The UN was designed to unite the world and prevent any future global conflict from happening. UN demanded European Empires demolish and dismiss their
colonial empires, but at the same time, allowed membership from Communists and nations which were far from democratic.
China, Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, Cuba, Burma, Egypt are among the nations with the worst human rights record in the world, but are allowed to be apart
of the United Nations. Heck, Zimbabwe is even in control of a UN commission! Iran has ignored and mocked the influence of the UN because this so
called "great" international organisation is dead. Arab nations play politics with its human rights council and use it as a platform to attack
Israel. The council refused to acknownledge any violations that did not involve Israel.
In 1945, the United Nations should of been a Union of Democracies that stood up to tyrants and not endorse them. The organisation should of promoted
peace, liberty and democracy and not justify and legitify undemocratic regimes. This Union would of spoken out against torture and defended human
rights, but this dream never happened.
McCain is on the money. This policy is the real deal. We in the West should support it because a league will help to promote and spread democracy
throughout the world.
