"And you keep on forgetting how ineffectual the UN has been for decades. How about Somalia, Sudan, Korea, most of africa.
And you still don't understand not only what the UN stands for but also how it works. The UN hasn't got hundreds of thousands of its own forces it can deploy rapidly where needed. The UN depends on its member nations to 'offer' their troops. And if these nations don't offer troops, there isn't very much the UN can do about it.
"How the UN was on the take and greased by IRAQ during the "food for Oil" program.
How was the UN greased by Iraq during the "Food for Oil" program, Galaxy? The investigation into this alleged fraud is still ongoing (by US Paul Volcker, what more do you want), yet you, as happened with the WMD issue, have already made up your mind before getting the actual facts.
" Also when did the US ship sarin to Iraq, again another fabrication of reality.
My misstake. The US didn't ship sarin to Iraq, only Anthrax, Botulinum, Histoplasma Capsulatam, Brucella Melitensis, Clostridium Perfringens and Clostridium tetani
. Sarin-ingredients were provided by your allies the British. (1)
" Its great to see how you continue to stick your head in a hole and hope that the terrorism will just go away...
On the contrary, Spain for instance has recently prevented more terrorist-attacks from taking place on its soil, and we didn't have to carpet-bomb Falluja to achieve that.
"...you see thats the problem with the UN and the likes of you, you just hope things will get better but refuse to do anything to make it so.
Now here we have the core-issue of the "Fight against Terrorism". You believe the UN or I aren't doing anything at all against terrorism, which is bullsh!t. An illustration of just how wrong you are are the numerous anti-terrorism efforts going on around the world today without you apparently knowning about it. Falluja-like assaults might give you
the idea something is actually done about terrorism, in the real world
and in the real war on terrorism
its effects are completely counter-productive.
Unfortunately, terrorism isn't something new in Spain. The country has been living with it for ages and has learned the hard way that the only way to fight it succesfully is through international cooperation. That is one of the core items one needs to fight terrorism effectively and to prevent other attacks from taking place. Unfortunately, the US is approaching this Global problem not only completely wrong, it is also completely isolated, except for a few 'allies' such a Britain. There is
a War on Terror outside Iraq Galaxy. It's just not as flashy as an Assault on Falluja you can see on the evening news.
"And you can't even see the joke about the UN in your own posts, the UN did nothing to limit Iraq from building a huge stockpile of weapons, explosives, missles etc...
??? The UN did nothing when Iraq was building a huge stockpile for the simple reason that a number of countries, such as yours, didn't want the UN to do anything about it. Iraq was fighting a war with Iran, remember? Saddam's Iraq at that time needed all the weapons it could lay its hands on and the U.S. under Ronald Reagan assisted Saddam as much as possible, even when U.S. Congress opposed. The only country which was actually doing something about Saddam's weapons build-up and the use of Chemical Weapons was Iran, and your country specifically did everything it could to prevent Iran from getting their weapons. The National Security Archive has got some great declassified official documents on this and the infamous picture of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam comes from this period. Did you know Rumsfeld gave Saddam a personal letter from Ronald Reagan, the President of the US of A at that time?
"Your own posts show how bad the UN was at keeping Iraq in check, all they did was give Iraq 12 years to build up the largest arsenal in the M.E.
Bullsh!t. Even the Duelfer report has acknowledged that during those 12 years Saddam's WMD program was insignificant if existant at all. It also admits that the effectivity of the UN sanctions were greatly underestimated by the U.S.
