List of failures & complicities of the International Community & UN endangering world peace

Just who are the international community and what power do they yield and how unbiased are they? What about the UN, how credible is the UN that was created to stop a future world war but has done pittance against plenty of mini-wars taking place all over the world! Does the International Community and the UN have any moral right to be further interfering in countries when none of their solutions have produced results while their involvement in manufacturing conflicts are the cause of de-stability in the world? It is baffling that the world is actually relying on the countries that help create and spur conflict to actually usher world peace as well!

James Lucas writing to GlobalResearch claims the US has killed over 20m people in 37 victim nations since 1945. http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-has-killed-more-than-20-million-people-in-37-victim-nations-since-world-war-ii/5492051 William Blum’s writing compliments this assessment. If true, does the US have any moral right to be dictating terms to any country when US is above international laws & does not abide by any of the UN conventions!

In terms of invasion implying violation of Article 2 of UN Charter “from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state”. The Charter only permits military action in case of self-defense of an armed attack or if the Security Council authorizes. Thus, US sending troops to Grenada in 1983 qualifies as an invasion. Sending troops to Panama in 1989. The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 was also without UN sanction. U.S. military actions in Kuwait and Iraq in 1991 and in Afghanistan in 2001 would count as “invasions,” In 1992 U.N.-backed, U.S.-led intervention in Somalia began as a humanitarian action. In 1994 and 1995, the United States received U.N. backing to reinstall ousted Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the president of Haiti. The interventions in Bosnia and Kosovo by the United States and NATO in the 1990s also qualify as invasions. The 2011, U.N.-approved NATO campaign to oust Muammar Qaddafi in Libya will also qualify as an “invasion,”

During the 1980’s the US funded, trained and supplied weapons to the Contra rebels fighting the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. On June 27, 1986 the International Court at the Hague declared US guilty of breaching Customary international law. US has yet to pay USD17b reparations.

on March 24, 1999, NATO began a 78-day deadly and devastating U.S.-backed intervention of Yugoslavia. It became the 1st instance that NATO attacked a country without UNSC approval. The excuse used was to prevent a genocide of Kosovo Albanians. NATO illegal bombing destroyed and damaged 25,000 homes, 300 miles of roads and close to 400 miles of railways, damages to 14 airports, 19 hospitals, 18 kindergartens, 69 schools, 176 cultural monuments and 44 bridges. https://www.telesurtv.net/english/analysis/US-NATO-Lies-to-Justify-Genocide-and-Destruction-in-Yugoslavia-20160323-0005.html

Somalia as a country was created in 1960, and collapsed in 1991 when President Siad Barre was overthrown. Al-Shabab and Al-Qaeda insurgents are active & U.S. troops were deployed in 2007 but conflict remains unsolved.

In Syria, mercenaries, terrorists and soldiers from over 100 countries are involved. More than 400,000 people have been killed and millions displaced. US Govt allocated USD500m to train 1500 Syrian ‘rebel’s throughout 3 years! https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/our-high-priced-mercenaries-in-syria even UK mercenaries were sent https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/nov/22/uk-mercenaries-fighting-islamic-state-terrorist-syria We wonder who is fighting whom!

France invaded Mali on January 11, 2013 – West’s invasions get nothing more than a statement from the UN.

Britain has invaded all but 22 countries in the world (Britain invaded 90% of countries in the world) The crimes of colonial rule remain without justice as the perpetrators remain the very countries that are bombing the world.

Britain’s war in Libya in 2011 was illegal but no action has been taken or appears imminent to hold Ministers to account for this. British bombing in Libya, which began in March 2011, was a violation of UN Resolution 1973, which authorised member states to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya and to use ‘all necessary measures’ to prevent attacks on civilians but did not authorise the use of ground troops or regime change.

UK government has been covertly involved in Libya/SyriaSAS forces have reportedly been secretly deployed to Libya since the beginning of 2016.

According to the Global Peace Index only 11 countries were named as having the lowest form of conflict – Switzerland, Japan, Qatar, Mauritius, Uruguay, Chile, Botswana, Costa Rica, Vietnam, Panama and Brazil. The same study reveals more than 2 billion people live in the 20 least peaceful countries, compared with 500 million in the 20 most peaceful.

According to Nick Turse, in 2013, elite US forces were deployed in 134 countries around the globe, according to Major Matthew Robert Bockholt of SOCOM Public Affairs (with 72,000 personnel).

What about the drone attacks – President Bush launched fifty-one such strikes, President Obama over 330, according to research by the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

Declassified documents of the US government also reveal much. More than 400 American journalists … in the past twenty-five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency. These include heads of CBS, Time, the New York Times, the Louisville Courier Journal, and Copley News Service ABC, NBC, AP, UPI, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald. In the 1950s and early 1960s, Time magazine’s foreign correspondents attended CIA briefing” dinners similar to those the CIA held for CBS. Media cannot afford to talk!

BBC and other British media were used by the British secret intelligence service MI-6. In what they called Operation Mass Appeal, MI-6 agents planted stories about Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction (John Pilger) https://wearechange.org/declassified-documents-prove-cia-worked-closely-many-largest-media-outlets/

Let’s also not forget

The US is the world’s largest exporter of convention weapons accounting for 33% of global arms transfers & America’s top clients are Saudi Arabia, UAE, Turkey, South Korea and Israel according to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)

Both US & UK have transferred more than US$5 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia who is leading the attacks on Yemen that has resulted in a humanitarian catastrophe with 3million Yemeni’s displaced and more than 18m in need of humanitarian assistance. Close to 5000 civilians have lost their lives already since March 2015 bombing campaign led by Saudi Arabia. While US & UK have given only £371.5m in aid. UK’s arms to Saudi since March 2015 is £3.3bn. https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2017/03/yemen-multibillion-dollar-arms-sales-by-usa-and-uk-reveal-shameful-contradiction-with-aid-efforts/

There have been 226 UNSC resolutions relating to Israel since 1948. The US has abstained from less than two dozen of them. So what good are resolutions if only a handful of countries get the iron fist of the UN while countries with over 200 resolutions against them carry on regardless?

If a country is party to a treaty it is bound to abide by that treaty. However, those laws do not apply to the US but US uses the laws in existence to take actions against other countries. What good is a UN that can do nothing against powerful Western countries that conduct regime change, interfere in internal affairs including elections, help opposition by funding campaigns and strategic programs to usurp power and place puppets, use NGOs and their employees as foot soldiers for their agendas.

It is a mockery of justice when the perpetrators project themselves as Virgin Mary’s and go on a witch-hunt on targeted nations while none of their crimes ever get the gavel but these very perpetrators unashamedly quote the law books against others. It is hilarious the extent of bias and hypocrisy that prevails and the most hilarious thing is that the spokespersons of these criminal countries read out speeches and address forums as if they are the paragons of virtue – do they believe the general public are stupid and illiterate? How long is the world going to allow these handful of countries to bully 7billion people?

Can the countries that indirectly spur conflicts be tasked to usher world peace?

    Another fact-filled gem from Shenali. Well said..!

    US and UK, the self claimed champions of HR’s, democracy, and rule of law, are the two biggest thugs and bullies in the world. These two Western hypocrites have murdered millions of innocent people around the world in order to maintain their power, glory (whatever left), and influence on other countries, especially developing countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. They have committed the most heinous crimes against humanity, like no other countries in the history of the world. Even, Hitler’s crime of killing almost six millions of Jews, looks pale in comparison to the atrocities committed by US and UK in the past.

    Now they are, and their puppet organization UN, supported by equally biased media, like BBC, Aljazeera, CNN, Fox, etc., are trying to crucify countries such as Sri Lanka, Myanmar, for trying to get rid of ethnic terrorists (Tamils, Muslims), who are trying to create their own states within these countries – supported by these hypocrites and the UN.

    What really annoys me is the fact that some of our own puppet leaders, such as Ranil, Chandrika, Mangala, Sirisena, (to name few) are still kissing asses, and worshipping their colonial masters, like they are still in the 19th century. I doubt even Tamils, who exploits the West to the hilt, are as bad as some of the Sinhalese who worships the White masters.

    We desperately need Sinhalese leaders who can stand up to these Western bullies, and their HR’s crusaders like UNCHR, biased media, and other NGO’s, who are paid to thrash majority Sinhala-Buddhists, for the benefits of the minorities.

    Unfortunately, I don’t see any such Sinhalese leaders presently in Sri Lanka, except Gotabaya, who has the potential to make Sri Lankans proud, especially Sinhala-Buddhists. I hope he is listening..!

    Great article Shenali and great words Nihal. The Christian West in cahoots with the Wahabbi Jihadists are busy trying to divide the world among themselves. They pick and choose their victim nations and pounce on them using the oft repeated slogans – Human Rights and Democracy. These are just red herring to mislead the gullible.

    In the face of these onslaughts only way ahead for victim nations such as Sri Lanka and Myanmar is to become self sufficient in our essentials – food, security etc – all measures to survive any sanctions from these bullying nations. We also need to join hands with friendly nations who are similarly affected so that we will not be entirely isolated.

    However unfriendly and belligerent we must applaude the efforts of North Korea for standing up against the naked aggression from the US and her puppets.

    It is apparent that the present Jadapalana Administration is driving the Sri Lankan nation towards a regime that will make us a dependent nation in perpetuity and this is the very thing that must be avoided at all costs. It is good to remember that one of the first things the Jadapalanaya did at the very outset of their administration is to discourage the farmers of Sri Lanka – the paddy, tea, rubber, coconut, karunka, pepper etc. They advocated the reduction of land under paddy cultivation to be reduced by almost half a million acres, then they took away the fertilizer subsidy – then replaced with giving money to the farmers, knowing very well that money will be used for other nefarious needs other than tending their cultivations. Then they went on to deny the promised price for the farmers produce. These are all measures to make the country once self sufficeint in rice to import rice.

    The dismantling of the armed forces camps is the way to make the country less secure leaving the country exposed to resurgence of terrorism once over. No where else in the world a country has dismantled her security set up as fast as Sri Lanka. Defeating LTTE terrorism at Nandi Kadal was an event and a milestone. It is not an end in itself unless the country took measures to stop any future resurgence. The victorius allies after World War II are still all over the world in strategic locations. Nazism remains a dirty word at least in the breach. The same thing has not happened to the LTTE Tiger establishemnt or the war criminals still at large in other countries such as Adele Balasingham in the UK.

    In Sri Lanka our only hope for the future is Gotabhaya, I fully agree. Mahinda for all puroses is still a politician and not a Statesman. He is ever ready to compromise with the UNP and in the process the nations suffers. The old world must give way for the new and the way ahead is for Gotabahya taking the reins of power discarding the old and useless turncoat politicians whose ‘use by date’ is long gone.

    Gota is the man to lead, no question. Though Wijayadasa R has done lots of errors in the past, he too can join hands with Gota to save Sri Lanka. For me, that is the best combination

  4. Dilrook Says:

    Gotabhaya is a good choice for president provided he relinquishes his US citizenship.

    If he remains a US citizen, that allows USA to control Sri Lanka by threatening to sue him for (alleged) war crimes charges. A US citizen can be tried by USA in any way they want. This is a huge danger and it has happened elsewhere. If he relinquishes his US citizenship, this problem doesn’t arise.

  5. Cerberus Says:

    Thank you Shenali for another wonderful eye-opening article. Here are some extracts from a previous comment I made which I think is relevant. The Sinhala Buddhists must start thinking for themselves instead of depending on others to do our thinking for us. The Yahapalanaya Govt appears to get their script for all the activities from the West. Why is it that they do not, for example, go to India and lecture them about the rights of untouchables and demand India to repeal the caste laws which are anti-human. Why is it that only Sri Lanka gets lectured by these criminals who are parading around the world with such self-righteousness when they themselves have committed such horrendous crimes?

    Our people must start thinking for themselves.
    1. Why did SWRD get killed by a Buddhist priest? In one swoop it destroyed someone who was trying to give Sinhala the rightful place. Somarama came from the Kelaniya temple whose Dayakayas are the Wijewardenas, Ranil’s mother’s people. In addition, it sullied the Buddha sasana. It is also interesting that Somarama just before he was hung converted to Catholicism. So it was a carefully planned activity to with a triple fold action. (a) Killed the benefactor for Sinhala (b) Sully the Buddha sasana (c) Show the superiority of Catholicism vs Buddhism.

    2. Ask yourself why a small group of youth led by Prabhakaran was able to wreak so much havoc in Sri Lanka. Why were the successive Govts unable crush the LTTE? Between CBK and Ranil they gave the LTTE every opportunity to grow themselves.

    (a) CBK recruited the Norwegians as the mediators who were actually following the agenda of the West to divide Sri Lanka into two parts.
    (b) Ranil allowed container loads of materials to go to Wanni bypassing customs. No one knows what was in the containers, arms or equipment.
    (c) Both CBK and Ranil kept demoralizing the Sri Lanka forces by limiting them to the barracks and telling them that the LTTE cannot be defeated. It became a self-fulfilling prophecy for 30 years. I used to be afraid to get into a bus or a train wondering if somebody’s parcel is going to blow up. CBK hated the Sinhalese Buddhists since her father and the husband had been killed by Sinhalese. She claimed she went to Sorbonne which is an utter lie. She is a drunken old hag.
    (d) Ranil tried to sign a peace agreement which would have given 2/3 of Sri Lanka to Prabhakaran.
    (e) Why did 31 Catholic priests emerge from the Wanni after the war? Prabhakaran and many of the LTTE converted and became Catholics. The proof is the gravestones they had set up for their dead. Hindus do not bury the dead they cremate them.
    (f) Bishop Reyappu Joseph was based in Mannar which was a gateway for illegal immigrants. All the Tamil Dalits who came from South India were looked after by Bishop Reyappu Joseph who converted them and sent them to the tea estates to merge with the Indian population. The whole exercise was to increase the flock for the Vatican. Today the head of the Head of, LTTE terrorist front organization – Global Tamil Forum is Father Sleemanpillai Joseph Emmanuel ( S J Emmanuel). Born, 1934. He is working directly against Sri Lanka’s efforts for unitary state.

    3. Though we got independence in 1948 we have never been independent. India has been dictating terms to us for a very long time. Their long-term goal is to assimilate Sri Lanka as they did with Sikkim and now they are working on Nepal. After the war, MR had no support for development other than from China. After the idiot Ranil came in he kicked off China and went after the West. He got no financial help at all from them other than praise and pats on the back. The Niwata My3 was so thrilled that the Queen took off her glove to shake his hand. But it did not follow with any cash gifts for Sri Lanka.

    4. We must think strategically as to how we can use our location on the path of the sea routes to our advantage. President Mahinda Rajapaksa understood it and that is why he built the Hambantota harbor. It started making a lot of money by bunkering and after the idiot Yahap Govt came in they stopped all that just to discredit MR. It was the same with the Mattala airport. Just to discredit MR in the eyes of the people they started storing paddy in the hangars.

    5. Sri Lanka is and has been an agricultural country for over 2600 years. Over forefathers were very wise and built a system of tanks to collect all the rainwater and use it for production of food. This bunch of idiots was told by the West to stop rice production and import rice and wheat. So dutifully they followed. During Mahinda’s time, we were self-sufficient in rice. Within two years we have become dependent on imports of rice from Bangladesh and Thailand. Self-sufficiency is of strategic importance for the Sinhala Buddhists since it makes them independent. Ranil wants to convert these people to low-paid workers for foreign factories who will use them to make money for themselves. Is that what we want for Sri Lanka.

    I can go on and on. The bottom line is we have to start thinking analytically. We have to depend on our selves as Dr. Garvin Karunaratna has always said. What Ranil wants to do is to make us an export economy so that we are subjected to fluctuating international money markets and foreign Corporations who will only seek their benefit instead of the benefit of our people.

    The article here by Shenali & the Comments say it all.
    Our grateful thanks to all !

    ——

    Bring back the SLAS to bring Law & Order to Lanka.
    That is how INDIA manages to go through all their troubles and strife – the INDIAN ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES manage the day to day affairs there with Law & Order. Wise INDIA !

    The day uneducated politicos took over from the SLAS in Lanka, Lanka was doomed.
    Lanka’s enemies must be laughing at how easy it was to down Lanka !

  7. Fran Diaz Says:

    The SLAS of old days had the govt authority by Law to carry on their work properly.
    That old system must be brought back.

    There is a talk of bringing in the Senate as well.
    May be a good idea.

  8. RohanJay Says:

    I agree US,Britain and Isreal are Rogue nations that constantly invade and make war against other countries. These three cleverly use the UN and other organisations to wage war by painting who ever they are waging war against as the bad guys. When in reality US,Britaina dn Isreal are the bad guys constantly violate international law.
