VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Bush Lies to the United Nations Part 2

President Bush Addresses The United Nations General Assembly

In Sudan, innocent civilians are suffering repression — and in the Darfur region, many are losing their lives to genocide. America has responded with tough sanctions against those responsible for the violence. We’ve provided more than $2 billion in humanitarian and peacekeeping aid. I look forward to attending a Security Council meeting that will focus on Darfur, chaired by the French President. I appreciate France’s leadership in helping to stabilize Sudan’s neighbors. And the United Nations must answer this challenge to conscience, and live up to its promise to promptly deploy peacekeeping forces to Darfur.

Who is repressing Sudanese; who is committing genocide in Darfur? Why?  We all know that the enemy is Islam; that Sudan’s regime is practicing Islam. President Bush can’t bring himself to acknowledge that fact in public. Nor will any sanctions, nor peace keeping force solve the problem without removing Islam from Sudan and keeping it out.

Second, the mission of the United Nations requires liberating people from hunger and disease. Article 25 of the Universal Declaration states: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food and clothing and housing and medical care.” Around the world, the United Nations is carrying out noble efforts to live up to these words.

Rights do not stand alone; they are paired with obligations. One man’s right to an adequate standard of living  implies another’s obligation to fork it over. President Bush is promoting International Socialism: advocating forcible redistribution of wealth and income.  As a lame duck, he tacitly  confesses that he is a Socialist, not a Conservative.

I’ve proposed an innovative initiative to alleviate hunger under which America would purchase the crops of local farmers in Africa and elsewhere, rather than shipping in food from the developed world. This would help build up local agriculture and break the cycle of famine in the developing world — and I urge our United States Congress to support this initiative.

This proposal overlooks basic economics. It threatens to interfere in markets, both domestic and foreign. In Africa & Asia, it would raise the price of agricultural commodities. Locals not receiving subsidies or commodities would suffer from resulting inflation.  In the developed world,  farmers and those who supply seed, fertilizer, fuel and equipment to them would lose income. The side effects could be extremely wide spread throughout our economies.

Third, the mission of the United Nations requires liberating people from the chains of illiteracy and ignorance. Article 26 of the Universal Declaration states: “Everyone has the right to education.” And when nations make the investments needed to educate their people, the whole world benefits. Better education unleashes the talent and potential of its citizens, and adds to the prosperity of all of us. Better education promotes better health and greater independence. Better education increases the strength of democracy, and weakens the appeal of violent ideologies. So the United States is joining with nations around the world to help them provide a better education for their people.

That paragraph contains an egregious Goddamn lie which must not pass without condemnation: “Better education increases the strength of democracy, and weakens the appeal of violent ideologies.”  The founders of the Muslim Brotherhood were neither illiterate nor uneducated. They were Imams, professors and doctors. Qutb & Azzam wrote infamous books. Bin Laden is a Construction Engineer; Zawahiri a doctor.  See how education kept those doctors in London, Glasgow & Australia from raising Hell this summer!  Islamic terrorism  is a function of Islamic doctrine, not poverty, ignorance, disease, repression or suppression. Education does not prevent it.

Finally, the mission of the United Nations requires liberating people from poverty and despair. Article 23 of the Universal Declaration states: “Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, [and] to just and favorable conditions of work.” In the 21st century, this requires ensuring that people in poor countries have the same opportunity to benefit from the global economy that citizens of wealthy countries have.

President Bush wants to enrich the impoverished areas of the world. In his attempt to do so, he will  impoverish us. We should learn a lesson from this and never again elect anyone ignorant of basic economic principles!

The United States is committed to a strong and vibrant United Nations. Yet the American people are disappointed by the failures of the Human Rights Council. This body has been silent on repression by regimes from Havana to Caracas to Pyongyang and Tehran — while focusing its criticism excessively on Israel. To be credible on human rights in the world, the United Nations must reform its own Human Rights Council.

The UNHRC is only interested in condemning Israel and bitching bitterly about “Islamophobia” & “denigration of religions”; demanding censorship & blasphemy laws . Why in Hell is that?  What do the majority of member states have in common?

With the commitment and courage of this chamber, we can build a world where people are free to speak, assemble, and worship as they wish; a world where children in every nation grow up healthy, get a decent education, and look to the future with hope; a world where opportunity crosses every border. America will lead toward this vision where all are created equal, and free to pursue their dreams. This is the founding conviction of my country. It is the promise that established this body. And with our determination, it can be the future of our world.

Perhaps, if you first remove Islam, Communism & Socialism from the world you can move forward toward those lofty objectives. Fat chance!!! You’d still need to eliminate corruption.
