The United Nations Of Complacency
Editor, New York City Combat Correspondent News
GROUND ZERO, New York City, Feb. 10--What is
going on? Why is the United Nations dragging its feet over
Iraq? Why are the leaders of the world reluctant to issue
a death warrant on Saddam Hussein, or, at the least, indict him for
"conspiracy to commit crimes against humanity." Or, worse
yet, why are other nations siding with Iraq, and opposing a U.S.
assault on Saddam Hussein's leadership? Is it because of oil?
Or is it because the nations of the world don't want anyone to have
the right to accuse them of being a bad "national parent" and waltzing
into their nations in the future and telling them "how to run their
Globally, we are in a
historic face-off between Terrorism and Vigilance. Our
current global Beasts of Terror(subject to change tomorrow) take the form of Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong Il.
They stand above the crowd, singled out as men who would--given the
right provocation--unleash weapons of mass destruction with
indiscriminate lust against all who might oppose their selfish goals
of tyranny. No one doubts that Saddam Hussein would do anything
to maintain his power. He's already proven his ability to kill
his own citizens with deadly gas if they resist his will. And
Kim Jon Il is a noted playboy tyrant, who feasts while his people boil
grass to eat while he opens nuclear reactor plants to stew up some
As the Vice of Vigilance squeezes
on the Head of Middle East Terrorism (represented by Saddam Hussein), the
World of Complacency (commonly known as the United Nations) argues
that war and conflict is unnecessary until the Beast breaks out of his
cage. The U.N. says that until the Beast begins to rape, pillage
and plunder those outside his national borders, the Beast enjoys certain
sovereign rights to do what he wants to do, when he wants to do it,
Council of the United Nations of Complacency
"United Nations of Complacency," ducks behind the Shield of
Sovereignty. Unfortunately, the shield supports despots
and tyrants as well as democratic benevolent leaders..
Governments, epitomized by the U.N. claim each national leader has to
right to rule his people as he sees fit, including subjecting them to
starvation, tyranny, economic depravation, and political and religious
prosecution. Well, there are some limits, but as far as
the United Nations is concerned, it hasn't declared war against any of
them, or pushed for a regime change to remove leaders who abuse their
people and insult civilization by depriving their people of certain
This is a sad state, of
course, for the Children and the Children's Children's Children.
Under such Rules of Sovereignty, the
Children must surrender to the will of their leaders.
They must conform or be punished if their
leader's rules deny them Liberty and Freedom of expression.
Most nations don't offer the
individual unbridled human rights of expression. To do so would
threaten the leaders grip on the people. It would allow dissent
among them and invite revolution against policies and principles they
might find detrimental to the leader's future.
Communism, for example, gives
the state power over the people. It assumes the people aren't
capable of managing their own affairs, much as children fall under the
guardianship of their parents until they reach a legal age.
Communism, however, offers no legal age, no graduation from being a
servant to the state.
by the sword and controls Iraq by force
Despots and tyrants rule by the sword.
They impose Fear, Intimidation and Complacency as tools of parenting
their citizens, who, are truly not citizens in the sense they have a
Voice in the future of their state. Despots control the
state by force, offering one agenda--that of the leader as he
perceives the future. If he wants to starve the people
while he amasses power to maintain his rulership, so be it. The
world of government--expressed by the United Nations--nods or turns
its head. It has no teeth to tell another how to run his
or her country. And most who are members of the United Nations,
do not offer their people unbridled liberty or freedom. They
rule with some variation of tyranny and terrorism, often disguising
themselves as "democracies in the making."
North Korea, for
example, carries the official name, the Demo cratic People's Republic
of North Korea (DPRNK), but, in truth, is far far far away from
offering the people of the nation--the mothers, grandmothers, fathers,
uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews and nieces--the right to vote and rule
the nation through individual Voices combined as one representative
Given a choice of feeding
their children or building nuclear weapons, it is unlikely the citizen
of the DPRNK would opt for turning fuel rods into plutonium.
This brings us to the United Nations of Complacency,
ruled by mostly men who hold firm grips on the leadership of their
countries through systems one would say have miles to go to approach
the purity of democracy. China, one of the strongest of all
Voices in the U.N., is one example. It gained membership
by promising to become more humanitarian. The world is
still waiting for their actions to approach their promises.
In most nations, Political, Religious, Racial, Ethnic
and Cultural difference serve as walls dividing Children from the
Rights of Innocence--the rights of democracy.
Rights of Innocence are lost to his country's Religious
expect a child to grow up believing in one viewpoint, not to think for
himself or herself, or to have the right to believe whatever he or she
chooses, but to make the state, the nation and its goals, more
important than their own. What the state or nation doesn't
teach the child, however, is that often the state or nation's goals
change with each regime. Citizens in Afghanistan can be
bowing to a tyrant one minute and then dancing in the streets with
boom boxes the next. Children brought up in nations of
"sovereignty" are taught that their duty and obligation is to fight to
the death to protect their nation's rights, or, their religious
rights. They are not told to fight and die for their Children's
Children's Children's rights, and that those rights are not subject to
dogma or dictate by any human being, but are inborn rights granted to
each and every human being equally on all four corners of the earth.
Tyrannical leaders wave their
nation's flag in front of the people's faces. They don't
hoist up a newly born child and shout: "We fight for this
child's Children's Children's Children to be free to do what he or she
wishes to do or believe. We fight for the innocence of all to be
This child is
deprived of his Rights of Innocence
The United Nations endorses the right
of nations to continue to apply whatever rules and restrictions it
elects upon its people, even if those rules include a female can't go
to school, or that a leader of a nation has the right to unilaterally
declare war on anyone he or she chooses without conferring with his or
her citizens and getting their approval. Despots and tyrants own
the guns and the butter.
To preserve and protect the rights of
Leaders of Tyranny who promote one way of thinking, the
United Nations stands in defense of them. It is not composed of Leaders of
Democracy, Freedom and Liberty. It is, instead, a collection
of Leaders of Tyranny, primarily men who oppose the right of another
nation to impose its will on another nation's right to treat its
Children as it sees fit.
It is an Old Man's Club that has one
goal--to let any nation do what it wants so long as it doesn't
wholly endanger other nations.
By charter, the United Nations is alleged
to be a
Peace Keeping body.
In other words, it will do anything to
avoid war, including putting up with the worst of atrocities until the
final moment when such atrocities are so vile and corrupt it is
forced to act.
If the leader of a nation makes decisions that
impose poverty, starvation or threatens the security of the Children
within that nation, the United Nations will not declare war upon it or
demand it change its policies to protect the future generations with
anything more than a hand slap or some sanctions. Only if
the "bad nation" attacks another will the U.N. rise out of its seat
and thump its shoe on the table.
Pontius Pilate, the U.N. washes of its hands of such things as
regime change. It considers such a policy a despicable intrusion
on the rights of all National Leaders. Only when the blood
of the children flow in rivers does it act. Only when the
tyrants of humanity attack another nation does the United Nations rise
up in protest to stop the Beast of Terror. Only when the world
hears the children's screams does it awaken to the role of Vigilance.
Nations is waiting until its members hear the children's screams
Otherwise, it sleeps.
It buries its heads to the tyrants and

Rights of the Children's Children's Children's Children are, or
sharpens its teeth to insure that tyrants and despots do not starve,
murder, abort, or abuse the rights of their Children to live in

The reason the United Nations hides behind the
Right of Sovereignty is because it is composed of the henchmen of all
nations. Its members are the tyrants and despots who rule their
countries as they see fit, under selfish guidelines they believe are
more important than the Universal Rights of Children to live free to
become whatever their imaginations allow.
So it is no wonder that America is being attacked
by Complacency within the United Nations over the issue of going to
war in Iraq.
The United States is forcing the United Nations
to be a Keeper of the Beast of Terror, not a Peace Keeper.
A Peace Keeper doesn't like confrontation.
A Peace Keeper thrives on Complacency.
Peace Keepers will do anything to avoid
confrontation, including allowing a neighbor to abuse his or her
Children for a Peace Keeper believes that entering another's house and
pulling a parent away from beating a child is a violation of that
parent's right of sovereignty. After all, a home is a man's
castle, the U.N. says, and a nation is nothing more than a combination
of many castles.
The only time the U.N. will act is when the
parent in one house crosses the street and starts beating up on
another child in another house, and then, it acts reluctantly.
The U.N. would rather stand in front of the
abusers house and use a megaphone and talk to the abuser inside the
house, asking that abuser to stop beating on his children.
The U.N. likes it when the abuser comes out of the house with blood on
his hands and sits on the stoop and says, "O.K. I'll stop.
But in my own time. Under my own schedule. Is that
Okay with you?"
Keepers will do anything to avoid confrontation
"Sure," the United States says. "That's
fine with us. But would you sign this piece of paper promising
"I will. Of course I will. But, I
have to get back. The kids need me."
Now, if the abuser is a really big bully who has
a lot of weapons in his house, maybe the U.N. will ask him if it's
okay for the U.N. to send in some inspectors to check the house out."
"Sure, you can come in. You can look
around. Just give me some time to clean up the mess I've made."
So the abuser goes in and wipes up the blood and
buries his whips and chains in nooks and crannies around the house.
"Oh," says the U.N., "Is it okay for me to talk
to your children too, just to make sure they're Okay?"
"Absolutely," says the abuser, "But, since I'm the
father and have rights over my children, I have to be present when you
talk to them. I wouldn't allow such conversations unless I, the
guardian, were present."
"Of course," says the U.N., "After all, you are the father.
We wouldn't want to insult you by talking outside your presence.
I'm sure your child will be honest and forthcoming with us in your
"Yes," says the abuser, "My Children are very polite.
I'll remind them to tell you the whole truth and nothing but the
truth. And, I'll be there with them to insure they do."
So the United Nations comes in and takes a look
around. It finds some things out of order--an old bloody
whip here, a pair of brass knuckles there. Yes, the children
have a few bruises on their faces, but they say they got them falling
down the stairs. In the backyard is a number of graves of
the abusers previous children he said died because they didn't mind
him. It was back when, the abuser said, the children
were being punished because they revolted against the abuser, but he
vows he has changed his ways. And, he says, a father has a
right to punish recalcitrant Children. Yes, he admits, he
went too far back then, but he says he's learned his lessons.
The U.N. inspectors agree with him. They are not here to wage
war. After all, they are Peace Keepers. After all, the
tyrant has the right to be a tyrant. It is his castle."
"You know," the Peace Keepers say, "There
is this country called America that wants to punish you if you
continue to threaten them. They claim you are manufacturing
weapons here that you might use to attack their house across the
street. Are you creating weapons that can be used to abuse other
Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan says he has "universal
confidence in the UN inspectors"
"Certainly not!" The
abuser lights a cigar. "I am a leader of great stature.
I've been in charge of my children for twenty-three years. My
Children are happy and content. Sure, we have our family
problems. Why, don't you? Would you like someone
challenging your authority as a father? I should think not.
Why, if we allow these Americans the right to impose their will on me,
God knows whose house they'll stick their big fat capitalistic
Christian noses into next. Doesn't that gripe your butt
thinking some righteous nation just a couple of hundred years old has
the temerity to think it's in charge of how you run your nation or how I
run mine? What arrogance! Why, just think.
America is trying to impose global standards on the world.
It's trying to shove down our throats, and your throats, its concept
of how the world should be run. Is that a violation of
ancient law or what? For eons the world has operated on my
right to rule as I see fit. As you see fit. As Kim
Jong Il sees fit. So, Mister Inspector, look around.
Maybe you'll find a few things, but I assure you, I'm just doing what
any father would do to protect my Children. I'm keeping them
safe from the likes of America. Those Western bullies!
Why, they would have us all think we are bad and they are good.
Where do they get off trying to tell me or you or anyone how to run a
nation? How to be the father of future generations?
They are the real Terrorists, Mister U.N. Don't forget it."
So when the U.N.
inspectors go back to present their findings, they decide they want
much more time to inspect. They are gentlemen of Complacency.
They do not want to rock the boat. They do not want to change
the status quo of Complacency as the United States has done.
In fact, they resent the
idea that the United States has decided not to wait until the "smoking
gun" has fired. They don't like the idea that Vigilance--the
offensive protection of the future--is more important than
Complacency. Complacency--waiting for Terrorism to
strike--is much safer. It doesn't force judgment over others.
It doesn't open the door for all other nations to be "inspected."
Nations is a farce.
It has no power to
stop violence or war or oppression because it is hell-bent on
protecting sovereignty. It will go the ends of the earth to
protect the right of each nation from being accused and attacked by
another nation for what it does behind closed doors.
It is just like the
neighbors who listen through the wall to the screaming of the children
next door and do not pick up the phone and dial 911. They
fear by doing so someone might call 911 on them when they beat their
kids, and the fear of their own privacy being invaded overpowers the
duty to protect the innocent.
That's why the
world must change.
The United Nations
today is gasping its last breath.
Nations is no longer "the big show" - it is powerless
Its reluctance to
act against Iraq is a sad example of its leadership.
It is proof its
leadership is despotic, tyrannical in nature.
Why would a group
of fathers allow other fathers to abuse their children unless whey
wanted to reserve that right to abuse their own children with
The United Nations
is such a group.
It sits and talks
to one another about the "rights of nations," and, if one were to
interpret such discussions, one would translate the discussions simply
to: "Let's not rock the boat on sovereignty. Let's not let
America open the door to imposing another nation's will on a tyrant.
Let's let the tyrant be, because, in the final analysis, most of us
are tyrants. We like to tell our people how to think, how to
act, and we like to punish them if they don't do what we want.
If we give up that right, we'll all lose our power."
