gobble gobble

Happy Thanskgiving! I know it's not Thanksgiving yet but I'll be on the road/spending quality time with the family tomorrow so I probably won't get a chance.

So it's the day before Thanksgiving and it's just us three girls in the office today, a Russian, a Greek and a Chinese girl...sounds like the plot to a porno or something doesn't it hehe. But no! We're good Republican girls so we're just sitting here chatting about what kind of wrapping paper to use on the gifts from the company to our donors and surfing the internet.

I've been meaning to write something about the UN's various recent scandals...The whole thing makes me so sick, which is probably the reaction of everyone who's actually heard about this stuff. Oddly (or perhaps not-so-oddly) at BBC.com all the Congo-related articles that are linked on the front page or the Africa page are about how the UN is trying to help the poor Congolese...no mention of how that help is contingent upon sex with the young refugee girls who are basically running away from one evil into the arms of the wolf dressed as a sheep. Also, when I searched united+nations+sexual+harassment on CNN.com, the first article that pops up is about Bill O'Reilly. Oooookay.

Anyway, beyond how disgusting the media bias is (which you can read more about here), it's really time to rethink the UN and its role in the world.

The sad perversions of peacekeepers raping women and children from the very populations they were dispatched to protect, and promotions allegedly being levied for sex by none other than the organisation's principal anti-corruption official, are only indicative of a more systematic culture of corruption, in which the son of Annan's chief of staff Iqbal Riza was hired to work for the United Nations in clear violation of nepotism rules, in an incident for which Riza was never held accountable. The affair of the organisation's corruption czar also represented the second time in two weeks, point out employees, that U.N. management refused to take action against a senior official accused of harassment: U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Ruud Lubbers being exonerated earlier this month of allegations of sexually harassing an American woman working in his agency. Furthermore, the investigation continues into the Oil-for-Food scandal, in which senior U.N. officials accepted bribes in exchange for diverting funds meant as aid for impoverished Iraqis directly to former Iraq dictator Saddam Hussein. In a bureaucracy which has been as isolated as the United Nations from ordinary mechanisms of accountability, one begins to sadly suspect that in the present scandals we might only be seeing the tip of the iceberg.
