French moral superiority

Yes, I know. It's an oxymoron, but this report from London's Daily Telegraph chaps my hide. President Jacques Chirac negotiated a secret deal to protect Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serb general accused of Europe's worst atrocities since the Second World War, according to evidence submitted to the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague. […]

Human Rights and the U.N.

The Wall Street Journal's Claudia Rosett offers contrasting stories of heroism and cowardice in the face of evil. Wanna take bets on who's the coward? (Hint: The group has Cuba on its Human Rights Commission.)

No War for Oil

The Feckless French and the Recalcitrant Russians, who for years have supported the lifting of the U.N. embargo on Iraq, have seen the light now that the United States is in Baghdad. With the United States determined to eradicate all chem/bio/nuke weapons in Iraq, the French and Russians now demand proof before they forswear use […]

How many francs does a clue cost in Paris?

I say that because I just read the following Associated Press bulletin: Jacques Chirac says France will not authorize a U.N. resolution allowing the United States and Britain to administer postwar Iraq. Jacques, how many battalions does the U.N. have? If, for some reason, it had escaped your notice -- this isn't a U.N. operation. […]

FYI

I created the graphic below as a quick reference that should rebut any idea that the U.N. Security Council can be expected to be a bulwark of freedom and democracy. Feel free to link to this post, or to save and print out the graphic. But I would kindly request that you not appropriate the […]

I'm right -- again

Some opponents of war with Iraq (see below) have suggested that the more enlightened people of Europe -- especially France and Germany -- are correct in wanting to contain Saddam, rather than follow Resolution 1441 (which they supported) and disarming him. The reasoning for the disconnect between the U.S. and "old Europe" is that the […]

Ummm...but that's irrelevant

Some senile senior Democrats are accusing the Central Intellegence Agency of sabotaging the inspections and hiding weapons details with regard to Iraq. Excuse me, but according to U.N. Security Council Resolution 1441, Saddam Hussein is supposed to reveal all of this stuff to the U.N. -- there is nowhere in 1441 a requirement that the […]

Sometimes you just want to shake your head

Sen. Carl Levin was on Fox News Sunday earlier today, and I'm watching the recording of it. Let me say that I think Sen. Levin is a very limber man. The mental contortions that he's having to go through to oppose military action in Iraq while acknowledging that government's violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution […]

Mandela again

Former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nelson "can't think properly" Mandela has done it again. Like a 5-year-old child who sticks his fingers in his ears and says: "Naaaaa Naaaaaa Naaaa, I'm not listening to you," Mandela doesn't want to hear what the United States wants to say. Speaking before Powell's speech […]

Where are the defenders of the International Criminal Court now?

Back when the Bush administration refused to sign on to the farce, liberal commentators insisted the United States really had nothing to fear and that it was a sign of contempt for the international community not to join. Well, this just goes to show you that Bush was right. Criminy, we haven't even done anything […]
