UN Chief A Hollow Puppet

The UN specifically stands against the death penalty...as I do. So, the recent Saddam spectacle should be condemned by both them and myself...except the the new UN Chief, Ban Ki-Moon, might not actually be aware of the UN's position...even though he is now Chief of that world body:

"THE new Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, has backed away from the UN's opposition to the death penalty, saying the execution of Saddam Hussein was a matter for individual countries.

Addressing reporters on his first day as Secretary-General he said: "Saddam Hussein was responsible for committing heinous crimes and unspeakable atrocities against the Iraqi people." However, he added that all countries should pay due regard "to all aspects of international humanitarian laws".

This contrasts with a long-held position of the UN of opposing the death penalty."

I had my doubts about this guy, Mr. Moon that is, from the start. I know nothing about this guy...but what I DO know is that the UN is one of the most corrupt organizations on the planet, run by scoundrels, and the last Secretary General, Kofi Annan, has more dirty skeletons in his closet than Richard Nixon. Hell, the Oil-For-Food scandal blew up all around him, but he didn't get touched...probably because he had dirt on so many people that no one dared finger him.

(The Oil-For-Food scandal involved the funnelling of billions of dollars through the UN and to UN officials to make them see past Saddam's illegal selling of oil for personal profit, rather than diverting that profit to help the citizens of his country.)

So, the above history leads me to believe that no UN official in their right mind would want to a Secretary General that WASN'T corrupt. So, Ban Ki-Moon is highly suspect. Not to mention his personal bungling of the UN's long-held ban on the death penalty.

So, Mr. Moon, I'll be watching you...and you don't fool me.
