UN 'Peacekeepers' Actually Sexual Predators Story dated 25 March 2005
"The reputation of United Nations peacekeeping missions suffered a humiliating blow yesterday as an internal report identified repeated patterns of sexual abuse and rape perpetrated by soldiers supposed to be restoring the international rule of law. . . [A] study, released at the UN's headquarters in New York, [says]: 'The reality of prostitution and other sexual exploitation in a peacekeeping context is profoundly disturbing because the United Nations has been mandated to enter into a broken society to help it, not to breach the trust placed in it by the local population.' There have even been reports of paedophilia committed by peacekeepers."
Well, that's nice. Now we know what those blue helmets are for. . . to cover up the red horns underneath. Would someone like to explain to me why this doesn't merit front-page coverage every day for a couple of weeks? The so-called 'Abu Ghraib tortures' were fodder for front-page headlines for weeks, and mentioned on across several networks in unrelated news-coverage for months. And the men who were 'tortured' at Abu Ghraib were very bad men, by all reports. You know, people who had done very bad things to other people -- much worse things than humiliation. The people who were the victims of the UN storm troopers (I mean 'peacekeepers') were not bad people. They were people who were the victims of bad people (you know, the type of bad people that would be locked up and humiliated if the US were in charge). There is something very, very wrong with our broadcast and print media if they will give so much attention to the Abu Ghraib situation and little or no attention to the sociopathic depravity of the UN troops. _____________________________________________
