What the UN does now

Postby Pressto » October 1st, 2007, 5:15 pm

For years now genocide has been happening in Dufar and the UN has done nothing. Well we had the latest killings there of members of the UN backed African Union Peace Keeping force and what does the UN do?

(CNN) -- United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed outrage after rebels killed at least 10 African Union soldiers in an unprecented attack on a peacekeeping base in the troubled Sudanese region of Darfur.

An African Union spokesman told CNN the casualties were the heaviest suffered by the peacekeeping force since its deployment in 2004.

Some 30 peacekeepers were still missing from Saturday's assault on the Haskanita base and a further 10 wounded, Assana Ba told CNN.

Condemning the attack "in the strongest possible terms," Ban urged all parties to "recommit" to a peaceful resolution to the conflict and to prepare for peace talks in Libya in October.

The attack coincided with the arrival in Sudan on Sunday of Nobel laureates Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter among a peace delegation seeking to help negotiate a lasting settlement ending the regional conflict.

You can read the whole article but what it boils down to is the UN issues a statement saying Bad Dufar Bad. Okay job done now lets get back to drinking and doing nothing about the issue.

This comes on the heals of them backing out of any action against Iran for blowing off the UN on it's nuclear program.

This agency is totally worthless and I believe the US needs to pull funding for it until they decided to clean up their act.
