What Does The UN Have to Do 

With Right vs. Wrong?

By Junious Ricardo Stanton


The Constitution makes it clear that if we must counter a threat to our security, that authority must come from the U. S. Congress. Those who believe, and many sincerely do, that the United Nations serves a useful function, argue that ignoring the United Nations at this juncture will surely make it irrelevant. Even with my opposition to the United Nations, I can hardly be pleased that its irrelevancy might come about because of our rush to war against a nation that has not aggressed against us nor poses any threat to us. From my viewpoint the worst scenario would be for the United Nations to sanction this war, which may well occur if we offer enough U.S. taxpayer money and Iraqi oil to the reluctant countries. If that happens we could be looking at another 58-year occupation, expanded Middle East chaos, or a dangerous spread of hostilities to all of Asia or even further.--Texas Congressman Ron Paul 

The Bush administration appears to be scrambling to not lose face as its' blatant imperialism against the people of Iraq derails and his policy of pre-emptive aggression unravels. Many people were reluctant to support Bush' war without U.N. or allied support. The fact is, at this juncture Bush has neither. Only Britain, AmeriKKKa's lapdog, Spain and Italy are in Bush's corner. Even Israel which would be a prime beneficiary of a regime change in Iraq, and a U.S. occupational force in the region must, for political reasons, recuse itself from high profile support of Bush's agenda.

The massive anti-war demonstrations around the world even before the invasion of Iraq and Turkey's courageous rejection of US foreign aid bribes and their refusal to allow AmeriKKKan troops to use Turkey as a staging ground for an assault on Iraq seriously undermined Bush's war plans. Revelations Secretary of State Colin Powell's "irrefutable intelligence" about Iraqi WMD and links to international terrorism were taken from a graduate student's out dated research paper and that Condoleeza Rice ordered "dirty tricks" against six key Security Council members to intimidate them into siding with the U.S. on a new war resolution have further damaged the administration's credibility, despite the pliant mainstream media's incessant pounding of war drums.

What Bush & Co. arrogantly refused to entertain was that the vast majority of the world's inhabitants wouldn't approve of or support this war and would actively oppose it! Bush attempted to justify this war by misleading folks into believing Iraq was a threat to the US and Saddam Hussein had supported international terrorists, something his CIA has repeatedly denied! Colin Powell gained brownie points with the AmeriKKKan public by urging restraint and by counseling going through the UN as a way to build a broad multilateral coalition and favorable PR. Most people concurred thinking that if the UN supported the US position they too would back it.

My question is this, if there is no evidence Iraq is a threat to AmeriKKKa nor is there any proof Saddam Hussein supports international terrorism, would people still support this war even if Bush & Co had been successful in convincing the UN to go along with their charade? Would the people who oppose Bush's imperialist agenda have acquiesced just because the UN gave their okay and sanctioned a regime change and occupation of Iraq thereby approving AmeriKKKa's expropriation of Iraqi oil fields? Right is right and wrong is wrong! Why would this war be any less immoral or disastrous just because the UN Security Council caved in to Bush's wishes?

As this scenario played itself out I started thinking about what is it the proponents of the New World Order really want? Is it Iraqi oil, geo-strategic positioning in the region, or people to look to the United Nations as a vehicle for to solve global problems? Could Bush hit the trifecta again and get all three? What better way to get rank and file AmeriKKKans who for the most part are extremely jingoistic to think outside their nationalistic box, to think in terms of an international organization to resolve a pressing issue like the pending war in Iraq than to have one of the "cooler heads" within an insanely imperialistic administration suggest AmeriKKKa seek UN support for their nefarious plans?

Yes we live in a global community but the people pushing for a New World Order have an entirely different agenda. Their goal is to surreptitiously rule the world by controlling all of its resources, lands and labor. Bush and Co. are proponents of the New World Order just as his father and Bill Clinton were (it's not about political party, it’s about class affiliations). What if this Iraq issue was really designed to get Joe and Jane Sixpack more comfortable with the United Nations dictating or influencing AmeriKKKan foreign policy?

Right is right and wrong is wrong. Bush is wrong, this war and the other interventions about to jump off in Columbia and the Philippines are wrong. They are wrong because neither the people of Columbia nor the rebels there have done anything to AmeriKKKans. Nor have the rebels in the Philippines done anything to us. If a course of action or government policy is wrong or immoral, it shouldn't matter who supports it, if it is wrong the people should refuse to authorize, sanction or support the government or its immoral laws. The same thing goes for the United Nations!

The United Nations has no real power, if they did they'd enforce sanctions against nations like Israel who have also disobeyed unanimous UN resolutions! Right is right and wrong is wrong. Where do we stand, which side are we on, the side of right or the side of wrong? Do we cross over to the side of wrong just because the UN or George Bush says so? I don't think so! Remember genocide against the indigenous inhabitants and the kidnapping and enslavement of Africans were sanctioned by the AmeriKKKan government and carried out by people who thought they were being law abiding citizens. Rosa Parks broke the law by refusing to give up her seat on the bus. In doing so she helped break the back of AmeriKKKan racial cast and oppression. Here's another scary thought, everything Hitler did in Germany was legal!

Super Rich: A Guide to Having it All

By Russell Simmons

Russell Simmons knows firsthand that wealth is rooted in much more than the stock  market. True wealth has more to do with what's in your heart than what's in your wallet. Using this knowledge, Simmons became one of America's shrewdest entrepreneurs, achieving a level of success that most investors only dream about. No matter how much material gain he accumulated, he never stopped lending a hand to those less fortunate. In Super Rich, Simmons uses his rare blend of spiritual savvy and street-smart wisdom to offer a new definition of wealth-and share timeless principles for developing an unshakable sense of self that can weather any financial storm. As Simmons says, "Happy can make you money, but money can't make you happy."

The New Jim Crow

Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

By Michele Alexander

Contrary to the rosy picture of race embodied in Barack Obama's political success and Oprah Winfrey's financial success, legal scholar Alexander argues vigorously and persuasively that [w]e have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it. Jim Crow and legal racial segregation has been replaced by mass incarceration as a system of social control (More African Americans are under correctional control today... than were enslaved in 1850). Alexander reviews American racial history from the colonies to the Clinton administration, delineating its transformation into the war on drugs. She offers an acute analysis of the effect of this mass incarceration upon former inmates who will be discriminated against, legally, for the rest of their lives, denied employment, housing, education, and public benefits. Most provocatively, she reveals how both the move toward colorblindness and affirmative action may blur our vision of injustice: most Americans know and don't know the truth about mass incarceration—but her carefully researched, deeply engaging, and thoroughly readable book should change that.—Publishers Weekly

The Last Holiday: A Memoir

By Gil Scott Heron

Shortly after we republished The Vulture and The Nigger Factory, Gil started to tell me about The Last Holiday, an account he was writing of a multi-city tour that he ended up doing with Stevie Wonder in late 1980 and early 1981. Originally Bob Marley was meant to be playing the tour that Stevie Wonder had conceived as a way of trying to force legislation to make Martin Luther King's birthday a national holiday. At the time, Marley was dying of cancer, so Gil was asked to do the first six dates. He ended up doing all 41. And Dr King's birthday ended up becoming a national holiday ("The Last Holiday because America can't afford to have another national holiday"), but Gil always felt that Stevie never got the recognition he deserved and that his story needed to be told. The first chapters of this book were given to me in New York when Gil was living in the Chelsea Hotel. Among the pages was a chapter called Deadline that recounts the night they played Oakland, California, 8 December; it was also the night that John Lennon was murdered. Gil uses Lennon's violent end as a brilliant parallel to Dr King's assassination and as a biting commentary on the constraints that sometimes lead to newspapers getting things wrong. —Jamie Byng, Guardian / Gil_reads_"Deadline" (audio)
