United Nations Peacemaker turned warmongers’ tool
The United Nations made a mockery of itself with its May 2010
Security Council resolution imposing sanctions on Iran, fourth in the
series, for not halting its nuclear program. This is yet another
demonstration of UN Security Council being exploited by the United
States led Europe to implement their evil designs on countries,
especially Muslim countries, which fail to toe their line.
The injustice and hypocrisy of UNSC remain clear to the entire world.
The UNSC imposed sanctions on fiercely independent Iran which is
proud in calling itself an Islamic Republic is yet to develop a nuclear
weapon. However no such sanctions on Israel which possesses around 400
nuclear warheads with all the potentials to turn the Middle East into a
Sanction was imposed on Iran despite its peaceful overtures with its
May 17, 2010 initiative with Brazil and Turkey demonstrating its desire
to ship bulk of its enriched uranium to Turkey and thus complying with
some of the demands of US and its European allies.
Instead of reciprocating to Iran’s peace overtures, US officials
dismissed the Iran-Brazil-Turkey agreement and insulted the Iranian
leadership by describing it as ‘Unworthy of Trust’.
President Barack Obama exploited the Security Council to impose
sanctions aimed at crippling Iran’s military, energy and financial
arteries. President Obama on July 1 signed into law new sanctions
against Iran and measures, which penalise foreign companies that trade

These were overwhelmingly approved by the US Congress which dance to
the tune of Jewish lobbies.
The irony is that Russia and China too joined this US sponsored move
against Iran backed by the other members of the Security Council
Britain, France and Germany.
With these sanctions, the US and its war partners appear to have
started preparing the ground to destroy Iran in the same way they
destroyed Iraq by imposing sanction after sanction followed by the US
led invasion of Iraq on March 2003.
This illegal invasion, described by the late British Nobel laureate
playwright Harold Pinter as an act of banditry, turned Iraq, an almost
developed country where the people enjoyed a very high standard of
living, into a virtual killing field enabling US, British, French and
other European oil companies to loot the Iraqi oil wealth. The invasion
killed almost 1.4 million innocent Iraqis, virtually destroyed the
country’s infrastructure and turned millions of Iraqis into refugees
both within and outside the country living in appalling conditions.
In the case of Iraq too the Jewish controlled US dismissed all
The US and Europe committed this crime with the collaboration of Arab
dictators to please Israel which wanted Iraqi war machine, gained
experience in its eight year war with Iran, destroyed to eliminate any
Same old conspiracy is being hatched to destroy Iran which made
remarkable progress in almost every possible field since the end of the
war in 1988. Under the circumstances even if Iran complies with all
demands the US will discover some pretext for a massive military strike
on Iran in keeping with the current policy of neo cons who hijacked US
politics to control the world by military means - with an annual
military budget of $750 billion.
In an article under the title ‘Itching to Fight Another Muslim Enemy’
in the Consortium News columnist Robert Parry said; “it’s pretty clear
that the US foreign policy establishment is again spoiling for a fight,
this time in Iran. Just as Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was the designated
target of American hate in 2002 and 2003, Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad is playing that role now. Back then, any event in Iraq was
cast in the harshest possible light; today, the same is done with Iran.”
It is common knowledge that it is the Zionist Jews who set the agenda
and the neo con warmongers in Washington, London, France and Berlin
implement it to the benefit of weapons industry, oil companies and other
vultures that prey on the flesh, blood, pain and the sufferings of
In these designs US has been shamelessly exploiting the UNSC to
legalize its wars while hoodwinking the world with the pro Jewish
It is worth recalling the devastating impacts of UN sanctions on Iraq
which virtually destroyed the Iraqi people as a nation. By the end of
the Clinton administration in 1999, his war against the Iraqi people
resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, cleaned out
Iraq of more than US$140 billion in oil revenue and saddled the country
This inevitably resulted in mass poverty, deprived millions of
families of food for young children or nutritional supplements necessary
for treatment of malnourishment and caused social and economic
dislocation which resulted in an intolerable rate of unemployment as
high as seventy percent.
Absence of consistent electricity and clean water supplies too
contributed to the massive increase in child malnutrition and disease.
There is a parallel with the effects of the nuclear holocaust of
Hiroshima and Iraq with an increased percentage of congenital
malformation, an increase of malignancy, leukaemia and brain tumours. A
study by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) found that between
1991 and 1998, there were 500,000 deaths above the anticipated rate
among Iraqi children fewer than five years of age.
This was the scale of the suffering and yet former US Secretary of
State Madeleine Albright said in an interview with CBS in May 1996, that
the “death of more than half a million children was worth the price”.
What a compassionate woman! She was not alone in her contempt for human
life in Iraq.
To protest against the effects of the embargo on the civilian
population the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq Denis Halliday
described sanctions as a form of ‘genocide’ on the people of Iraq and
resigned from his job in 1998, after 34 years with the UN. He wrote,
“Because the policy of economic sanctions is totally bankrupt, we are in
the process of destroying an entire society. It is as simple as that.
Five thousand children are dying every month...I don’t want to
administer a program that results in figures like these”.
He added that “I had been instructed to implement a policy that
satisfies the definition of genocide: a deliberate policy that has
effectively killed well over a million individuals, children and adults.
We all know that the regime - Saddam Hussein - is not paying the price
for economic sanctions; on the contrary, he has been strengthened by
them. It is the little people who are losing their children or their
parents for lack of untreated water. What is clear is that the Security
Council is now out of control, for its actions here undermine its own
Charter and the Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Convention.
History will slaughter those responsible”.
World War II
Halliday’s successor as Humanitarian Coordinator in Baghdad Hans Von
Sponeck who too had been with the UN for more than 30 years also
resigned on February 13, 2000 asking, “how long the civilian population
of Iraq should be exposed to such punishment for something they have
never done?” Two days later, Jutta Burghardt, Head of the World Food
Program in Iraq, another UN agency, resigned saying that she, too, could
no longer tolerate what was being done to the Iraqi people.
The resignations were unprecedented. All three were saying the
unsayable: “that the US- and UK-led West was responsible for mass
Today these very same architects of mass killings of Muslims have
once again used the UNSC to impose sanctions on yet another Muslim
country - Iran. Perhaps it is Iranians turn to pay the price after
Bosnia, Kosovo, Chechenya, Algeria, Somalia, Iraq, Palestine,
Afghanistan, Pakistan and the list continues.
The United Nations was established in the aftermath of World War II
to maintain peace. The irony is instead the UN has become the instrument
to impose sanctions and legalise illegal wars only causing deaths and
misery to millions on countries that fail to toe US line.
In fact the UN collapsed and lost its soul on May 14, 1948 when
Palestine was partitioned and the State of Israel was established for
migrant Jews in the lands robbed from Palestinians.
With the admission of Israel as a UN member while the Palestinians
languish in refugee camps in appalling conditions justice and all
cherished human values collapsed.
The UN is now being manipulated by US and Europe to serve their war
agenda which is fast turning planet earth into a killing field.
