Just like I've told you, the UN is a war department! There agenda is a document of war and not peace.
For Information. Doesn't this back up what we have been trying to tell people for a long time?

Annan vows that U.N. will cross borders to intervene ------------------------------------------------------------------------ By Betsy Pisik THE WASHINGTON TIMES ------------------------------------------------------------------------ NEW YORK <Picture: L>eaders of the United Nations warned at yesterday's opening of the U.N. General Assembly that national borders will no longer be a deterrent to justified humanitarian intervention. Traditional considerations of national sovereignty will no longer be taken into account, Kofi Annan, secretary-general of the U.N., told the opening session of the 188-member world body. Governments must not allow divisions within the Security Council to derail legitimate intervention in places such as Rwanda and Kosovo, he said. "If states bent on criminal behavior know that frontiers are not an absolute defense, if they know that the Security Council will take action to halt crimes against humanity, then they will not embark on such a course of action in expectations of sovereign impunity," he said. "Massive and systematic violations of human rights -- wherever they may take place -- should not be allowed to stand." Traditional talk of human rights, globalization and conflict resolution took on new immediacy against the backdrop of civilian atrocities in Kosovo and in East Timor, where U.N. troops, mostly Australian, began arriving yesterday. Leaders of several nations -- including France, Britain, Norway, South Africa and Tanzania --largely agreed with that view at the opening session of the two-week opening debate of the U.N. General Assembly. However, the newly elected president of Algeria, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, denounced international interference without the consent of a government. "We remain extremely sensitive to any undermining of our sovereignty, not only because sovereignty is our final defense against the rules of an unequal world," said Mr. Bouteflika, "but because we are not taking part in the decision-making process by the Security Council." Mr. Bouteflika was speaking in his capacity of head of government as well as the current president of the Organization of African Unity. President Clinton, by tradition the second speaker on the opening day, postponed his appearance until today in deference to the Jewish high holy day Yom Kippur. The U.N. declined to move the opening day of the debate to accommodate the Jewish holiday. The leaders of Cambodia, Bangladesh, Namibia, Georgia, Jordan, El Salvador and Ivory Coast also spoke yesterday, often at considerable length. Although this two-week session is usually referred to as the General Debate, there is little direct engagement on the issues. France, traditionally one of the most supportive U.N. members, called for an expansion of the organization's role to prevent human rights violations. "The United Nations' mission is not limited to the settlement of conflicts between states," Lionel Jospin, the prime minister of France, said. "With man's growing aspirations for greater freedom and responsibility, its mission extends to the protection of human dignity, within each state and, when necessary -- as the Charter allows --against states." Denouncing "state-instigated violence," Mr. Jospin urged his colleagues to "uphold the principle of international intervention under U.N. auspices, to assist the victims." Robin Cook, Britain's foreign secretary, echoed Mr. Jospin's sentiments. "We have a shared responsibility to act also when confronted with genocide, mass displacement of people or major breaches of international humanitarian law. To know that such atrocities are being committed and not to act against them is to make us complicit in them." He reaffirmed Britain's commitment to contribute British police officers to U.N. forces. But Portuguese President Jorge Fernando Branco de Sampaio spoke with evident sadness of the havoc wrought on his nation's former colony, East Timor, and blamed the United Nations for not protecting the people who it had encouraged to decide their own future. "The very credibility of the U.N. itself was as stake," he said. "How could the United Nations, having organized the popular consultation, betray the confidence placed in it by the people of East Timor? The United Nation's authorization of the Australian-led peacekeeping force in East Timor "shows to the world that the council does not remain indifferent to challenges to its authority, nor does it allow them to go unanswered." South African President Thabo Mbeki called on the organization to undertake swifter preventive action, in keeping with Article 1 of the U.N. Charter. "This imposes a solemn and supreme responsibility on the United Nations to work for the prevention of conflicts, and to endeavor to resolve them so that durable peace can be established," he said. Among the other speeches yesterday:
.Colombian President Andres Pastrana urged a unified global opposition to narcotics..Sheik Hasina, prime minister of Bangladesh, linked development with peace, and urged Western nations to increase their support for U.N. agencies..Pal Chaudhry, prime minister of Fiji, called for a greater global commitment to sustainable development..Cambodia's Hun Sen called for more assistance for the developing world and lifting the American embargo against Cuba.

In 1932 William Z. Foster, then National Chairman of the Communist Party, USA, restated point one of the Communist Manifesto; "The abolition of private property". Then in terms specifically applicable to the U.S., Foster said, "The establishment of an American Soviet government will involve the confiscation of large landed estates in town and country, and also, the whole body of forests, mineral deposits, lakes, rivers and so on". USA Communist Party Chief Gus Hall stated, "...The battle will be lost, not when freedom of speech is finally taken away, but when Americans become so 'adjusted or conditioned' to getting along with the 'group' that when they finally see the threat, they say, 'I can't afford to be controversial". Are we now so established or just on the way there? Realize the real agenda and what is happening before it's too late! We are almost there!
