US, NK spar over defector's confessions 음성듣기 By Yi Whan-woo Shin Dong-hyuk North Korea and the United States are at odds over testimony provided by a defector-turned-activist who recently admitted that there are inaccuracies in a best-selling book about his life in the regime's gulags. Pyongyang cast doubt on the credibility of "Escape from Camp 14" which was written by American journalist Blaine Harden and published in 2012. It was based on the accounts of Shin Dong-hyuk. He is believed to be the only person born and raised in a North Korean prison camp complex before escaping to freedom. The reclusive state also demanded that the United Nations annul its 2014 resolution against the North Korean regime for state-perpetrated violations of Human Rights. It said that the U.N. took Shin's "false account" into consideration when passing what it claimed was a "U.S-imposed resolution." The U.S. stood by Shin, saying that "more than ample evidence" exists about Pyongyang's crimes against humanity. On Tue ...
2015 is almost here and what has the United Nations accomplished this year? Liberated North Korea? Ended horrific violence in Syria? Effectively stopped ISIS from beheading and torturing journalists?

Daily Devotion: The Voice of the Martyrs December 23: Extreme Pastor - Part Two NORTH KOREA: PASTOR IM Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11 “But I am not a Communist. You must believe me,” pleaded Pastor Im when the United Nations regained the occupied territory in September of 1950. The North Korean Communist soldiers had kept Im locked in an isolated prison cell for two years for preaching to others about Christ and for refusing to change his sermons into pro-Marxist propaganda. When the UN troops arrived, he felt certain he would be a free man again. Yet they mistook him for a Communist and threw him into another cell with the Communist captives. Being a compassionate man and accepting the situation as God’s will, Pastor Im witnessed to the Communist prisoners. Many were converted to Christ. “We keep hearing about this prison camp preacher,” said an American missionary to his friend visiting Korea as a chaplain. “Since he knows the priso ...

UN Warns Philippines to End its Membership if Corruption is not Curtailed 11/22/2014 – Geneva | UN is stepping-up to pressure Philippines to act against corruption. In the latest joint report released by United Nations and Transparency International, Philippines remains one of the most corrupt countries in the world, and the most corrupt democratic country. Pakistan, Somalia, North Korea, and Iraq are the only countries ahead of Philippines. “Philippines has a dysfunctional government when it comes to corruption”, the report said. The report listed the “Pork Barrel Scam” as the biggest single scam scandal in Asia in the last 10 years which involves an estimated amount of $222.7M (P10B). Further details reveal that an estimated 40% of the P2.265T 2014 budget signed by Aquino will likely end up to politicians’ pockets. The United Nations warns Philippines that it will remove the country from membership if Aquino or the next president could not improve the country’s corruption level in the next ...
United Nations rips the Brown family “The sense of entitlement these people displayed is reprehensible” said chair member, Dr. Amancio Dominguez, in an interview with National Report. “We deal with legitimate and widespread instances of Human Rights violations, and frankly the issues presented to us here are not even a blip on our radar. It is in our opinion after reviewing all the evidence that the officer in question committed absolutely no wrong doing.” “We have much more important things to do than involve ourselves in county level legal proceedings. This was an absolute waste of our time. Compared to Human Rights violations that are prevalent in such 3rd world countries as North Korea and Brazil, America’s plight simply does not compare. While instances of police brutality certainly do exist, we have found that this was no such a case, and we will not be intervening in the matter.”

North Korea may allow a United Nations Human Rights inspector to take a rare firsthand look at the country after being pretty much cornered by a harrowing UN report on its dismal Human Rights conditions.
U.N. investigator: North Korea should be charged with Human Rights violations
North Korea has acknowledged the existence of labour camps but defended its Human Rights record at a rare briefing at the United Nations:
"The United Nations has become holy occupied Palestinian territory. I mean, the Palestinians own the United Nations. Every week is 'Palestine Week' or 'Support the Palestinians Week,' or it’s 'Condemn Israel Week'…If you're a Palestinian you are treated as if the United Nations belongs to you." Alan Dershowitz takes on the leftist haters of Israel at the UN, and America’s own cohort of professional anti-constitutional litigators, on tonight's Secure Freedom Radio. Then, we’ll talk about the service and sacrifice of America’s military families; the latest on why governments in the U.S. and the U.K. insist jihad has nothing to do with Islam; and developments in Hong Kong, North Korea, and elsewhere in Asia.

World Intellectual Property Organization fires staff union president In partnership with the Federation of International Civil Servants' Associations (FICSA), of which the WIPO Staff Association is a member. FICSA is a federated group of staff associations/unions from organizations belonging to the United Nations common system. On Friday, 19 September 2014, the Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) fired its staff union President, Moncef Kateb. This was done in advance of WIPO's annual governing body meeting, where Kateb was expected to criticize the controversial management style and behaviour of Director General, Francis Gurry. Kateb was also in the process of defending two former colleagues in front of the WIPO appeals board. Kateb had previously blown the whistle on the Director General when sophisticated IT equipment had been shipped to North Korea. The Director General is also accused of having improperly influenced a procurement process and of having used the Genev ...
term coalition of the willing is a post-1990 political phrase used to describe collective participants in military interventions that fall outside of United Nations peacekeeping operations. It has existed in the political science/international relations literature at least since UN peacekeeping operations began to run into complications in 1993-94, and alternatives began to be considered. One early documented use of the phrase was by President Bill Clinton in June 1994 in relation to possible operations against North Korea, at the height of the 1994 stand-off with that country over nuclear weapons. It has been applied to the Australian-led INTERFET operation in East Timor, and, in its most known example, by President George W. Bush, in reference to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003. Usage over IraqIn November 2002, U.S. President George W. Bush, visiting Europe for a NATO summit, declared that "should Iraqi President Saddam Hussein choose not to disarm, the United States will lead a coalition o ...
Soldier Missing From Korean War Accounted For On Jul 25th, the Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced that the remains of Army Master Sgt. Lawrence O. Jock, 37, of Fort Covington, N.Y., missing from the Korean War, have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors on Aug. 1, in Malone, N.Y. On July 14, 1953, Jock was a forward observer assigned to Battery A, 955th Field Artillery, 8th U.S. Army, which operated in support of the Republic of Korea’s 3rd Division near Kangwon Province, North Korea. Chinese forces attacked, forcing the 3rd Division’s units to abandon their positions. After this battle, Jock was reported as missing in action. Approximately two weeks after the battle, an Armistice agreement was signed between the United Nations and North Korea. As part of the Armistice, prisoners of war and war dead were exchanged. No further information on Jock was received from the Chinese and North Korean governments or Returning Ame ...
of Korea. The division of Korea into South Korea and North Korea was the result of the 1945 Allied victory in World War II, ending the Empire of Japan's 35-year colonial rule of Korea by General Order No. 1. The United States and the Soviet Union agreed to temporarily occupy the country as a trusteeship with the zone of control along the 38th parallel. The purpose of this trusteeship was to establish a Korean provisional government which would become "free and independent in due course", as set forth in the Cairo Conference. Though elections were scheduled, the Soviet Union refused to cooperate with United Nations plans to hold general and free elections in the two Korean zones, and as a result, a Communist state was permanently established under Soviet auspices in the north and a pro-Western state was set up in the south.] The two superpowers backed different leaders and two states were effectively established, each of which claimed sovereignty over the whole Korean Peninsula. The Korean War, which laste ...

North Korea has escalated its complaint against Seth Rogen's next movie to the United Nations.
North Korea filed a complaint with the United Nations over James Franco and Seth Rogen's comedy 'The Interview'
North Korea told the United Nations a new comedy from Canada's Seth Rogen is an "act of war" and "terrorism."
North Korea has complained to the United Nations about a film starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, accusing the United States of sponsoring terrorism and committing an act of war by allowing production of a movie about a plot to kill its leader, Kim Jong Un. "The Interview" - due to be released later this year - is about an American television-show host and his producer who land an interview with Kim Jong Un, and are then recruited by the U.S. C...

I’ve once asked a senior Nigerian official “Who are the enemies of Nigeria?” He was kind of shaken or upset by my question and responded with a sharp tone: “Enemies? We don’t have enemies. We are in the family of the United Nations, and we work there to contribute to peace in the world. We are friend with everyone!” Is the Nigerian official naive, or is it real that Africa has no enemy? Every year, the most powerful nation in the world, the United States of America, make a list of their enemies: enemy country, enemy private and public organizations, enemy non-profit organizations, individual enemies, and also a list of the main threats to their national security. This year, 2014, the list put China as the most dangerous enemy country of the United States, along with other countries like: Iran, North Korea, Russia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. There are about 100 nonprofit organizations on the american list of enemy organizations or terrorists group. There is also a list of enemy individuals, ...
On this day in 1953, in a forceful speech, President Dwight D. Eisenhower strikes back at critics of his Cold War foreign policy. He insisted that the United States was committed to the worldwide battle against communism and that he would maintain a strong U.S. defense. Just a few months into his presidency, and with the Korean War still raging, Eisenhower staked out his basic approach to foreign policy with this speech. In the weeks prior to Eisenhower's talk, Senator Robert Taft and Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg issued challenges to the president's conduct of foreign policy. Taft argued that if efforts to reach a peace agreement in Korea failed, the United States should withdraw from the United Nations forces and make its own policy for dealing with North Korea. Vandenberg was upset over Eisenhower's proposal to cut $5 billion from the Air Force budget. Without naming either man, Eisenhower responded to both during a speech at the National Junior Chamber of Commerce meeting in Minneapolis. He began by characteri ...
“He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death.” Revelation 2:11 Do you ever feel persecuted for your faith? Maybe your friends laugh at you when you talk about church. Maybe your boss tells you that you cannot talk about Jesus while you are on the job. Maybe your professor attacks your beliefs with her own theories and then never gives you the opportunity to defend your faith. All of these are very real instances of mild persecution, but I think we can all agree - there are cases that exist that are much worse. A Laotion house church congregation recently saw its pastor killed because of his faith. North Korea recently made a statement at the United Nations that their Human Rights problems were to be blamed on the Christians. In Nepal, pastors are praying for ways to get Bibles because they do not have them there, the hostile environment prevents it. In other parts of the word today there are pastors sitting in prison for the sole reason that they were preaching the gospel. Pe ...
North Korea says it could soon carry out its fourth nuclear test. If it does, analysts say China is likely to support tougher sanctions at the United Nations, and even carry out some actions of its own -
A new United Nations report has found that crimes against humanity are occurring in North Korea and they're calling for an international tribunal to investigate and hold perpetrators to account. These survivors paint a pretty compelling picture of why to do so.

North Korea: ‘The U.S. Is a Living *** The country that boasts arguably the world’s worst human-rights record is attempting to bequeath its title upon someone else. “The U.S. is a living *** as elementary rights to existence are ruthlessly violated,” reads an article titled “News Analysis on Poor Human Rights Records in US” that was published Wednesday by North Korea’s state news agency. Putting aside an inexhaustible list of ironies, some of the accusations from Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un’s propaganda arm provide an unnervingly accurate overview of some of America’s most pressing social and economic issues. The KCNA news agency report backs up its assertion that “the U.S. is the world’s worst human-rights abuser,” with a dozen fiery accusations and a handful of statistics that cite racial disparity, misuse of political funds, gun violence, and widespread unemployment and poverty. These are bold statements for a country with a record so bloody that an official United Nations i . ...
Petition to Expel North Korea from the United Nations. Recently the UN Human Rights Commission of Inquiry (COI) revealed the Human Rights situation in North Korea at the Geneva Human Rights Summit. The international community was shocked at the revelations of the report. Kim Jong Un’s own uncle, Jang Song Taek was openly punished; tortured and executed. Jang’s torture was evident in footage and photographs taken before his execution. Jang was killed by machine gun and his body further defiled by chemical weapons. We defectors who have experienced life in North Korea have lived through three generations of dictatorship. Kim Jong Un may be the “new” generation, but the government’s methods of torture, persecution, and execution are not likely to change. But the reality of today’s North Korea has been revealed by the COI and the country’s elite was shocked by rumors of public executions among their ranks. After the death of Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il blamed So Kwan-hi, the Agricultural Secretary ...

Savage looks at the nations who stood with America to condemn Putin and those who did not, and concludes, "Obama has upset the entire world order." It's interesting that the arrest of all these Democrats has occurred when Obama is on a world tour, giving speeches in grand palaces. Meanwhile Putin is massing troops who are digging in on the Ukraine border. One hundred countries at the United Nations backed Obama and rebuffed Russia on Crimea. So who backed Moscow? As you would guess, some horrible places: Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea, Syria, Sudan and so on. You'd expect some of the worst nations on earth to back Putin, but listen to this: Fifty-eight states abstained from the vote, including Argentina, Brazil, Egypt, China and India. Iraq abstained, too, so your son got crippled and died there for nothing. And why would Israel not participate, along with Iran, its mortal enemy? Because many of these nations face active or dormant territorial disputes of their own. In a nutshell: Obama is such a demon that ...
The United Nations is holding an Emergency Session ... over global warming/climate change, not over Russia and North Korea and Venezuela. Maybe because the UN wants to tax you and me over climate change. And, oh, by the way, did you know that Putin says FINLAND is more Russian than Scandinavia??
This is interesting from Newt Gingrich: President Obama won a significant victory in the United Nations yesterday. President Putin found himself surprisingly isolated. I am often critical of President Obama and his foreign policy team but when he gets one right, he deserves recognition and the event deserves some notice. When the United Nations votes to repudiate Putin's takeover of Crimea -- and does so by a ten to one margin -- something good has happened. Votes in the United Nations General Assembly are expressions of sentiment. They are not legally binding. Only the Security Council -- in which Russia and China have vetoes, as do the United States, Great Britain, and France -- can pass a binding resolution. Nonetheless a decisive General Assembly vote is psychologically useful. Yesterday's vote in the General Assembly was so one-sided that I was startled. I can't remember the last time the United States had an almost ten-to-one vote for its position. The actual vote was 100 "Yes" to 11 "No" with 58 ab ...
Now watching, a special documentary. Sinasabi ng North Korea na they live in a land of plenty, happy welfare children and shops over flowing of goods..

And the United Nations estimates that more than half of North Koreans ay walang halos makain.

« Breaking News » Cameron to Knesset: Together we’ll defeat delegitimizers of Israel DEBKAfile March 12, 2014, 4:50 PM (IST) In a speech to the Knesset Wednesday, British premier David Cameron said that although British businesses are officially advised not to invest in the West Bank ”Britain opposes boycotts, whether it's trade unions campaigning for the exclusion of Israelis or universities trying to stifle academic exchanges.” “You know I want peace and a two-state solution,” he said. “You don’t need lectures from me about how to get there.” He said peace dividends would involve "an end to the outrageous lectures on Human Rights that Israel receives at the United Nations from the likes of Iran and North Korea; an end to the ridiculous situation where last year the United Nations General Assembly passed three times as many resolutions on Israel as on Syria, Iran and North Korea put together. No more excuses for the 32 countries in the United Nations who refuse to recognize Israel." Ca ...
Front companies, embassies mask North Korean weapons trade: UN: North Korea has developed sophisticated ways to circumvent United Nations sanctions, including the suspected use of its embassies to facilitate an illegal trade in weapons, a UN report issued on Tuesday said. It said North Korea was also making use of more complicated financial countermeasures and techniques "pioneered by drug-trafficking organisations" that made tracking the isolated state's purchase of prohibited goods more difficult. The report, compiled by a panel of eight UN experts, is part of an annual accounting of North Korea's compliance with layers of UN sanctions imposed in response to Pyongyang's banned nuclear weapons and missile programmes. The panel reports to the UN Security Council. "From the incidents analysed in the period under review, the panel has found that (North Korea) makes increasing use of multiple and tiered circumvention techniques," a summary of the 127-page report said. China, North Korea's main trading partne ...

North Korea missiles pass near Chinese passenger jet Published March 05, 2014The Wall Street Journal North Korea defended on Wednesday its recent missile firings as "ordinary military practice," as South Korea said Tuesday's volley passed above a Chinese passenger jet's route just minutes ahead of the airliner. In its first public comment on the launches, North Korea's state media said the missiles' accuracy ensured they wouldn't affect neighboring countries. The firings began on Feb. 21 and ended on Tuesday, state media said. South Korean and U.S. officials confirmed that North Korea fired four Scud missiles into the sea last Thursday and two on Monday, as well as other short-range rockets on Tuesday. The firings of ballistic missiles breaches a United Nations test ban, but North Korea said Wednesday that the launches were a sovereign right. Seoul's Defense Ministry said the North gave no warning of any of the tests. It added that rockets fired on Tuesday traveled six miles above airspace traversed by a ...

Like Haile Selassie proved the ineffeciency of the League of Nations...North Korea is proving the inefficiency of the United Nations. The UN piles on sanctions and resolutions and North Korea continues to break them with no consequence or, worse, given money for the irresponsible government to feed its people. My heart aches for the people of North Korea, but the regime needs to be starved to death so a better government or reunification can take its place.

For US, tricky path pressing North Korea rights Washington (AFP) - For more than two decades, the top US goal on North Korea has been to curb the regime's nuclear weapons and missile programs, which have nonetheless steadily advanced. With a damning new United Nations report on North Korea's Human Rights record, the United States faces new pressure to take up what may be an even more difficult task -- persuading the totalitarian state to treat its own people better. The UN Commission of Inquiry produced a 400-page probe of severe violations in North Korea including extermination, enslavement and sexual violence. Releasing the report Monday, the commission's Australian chair Michael Kirby said that the exposure of the abuse required action and drew comparisons to the Holocaust, saying: "At the end of the Second World War, so many people said, 'If only we had known.'" The United States has already been increasingly outspoken about Human Rights in North Korea. Glyn Davies, the US pointman on North Korea, sai ...

It was so cold and miserable. All the men in the truck were suffering from battle wounds as well as frostbite. They huddled close together in vain attempts to keep warm. Weaponless and suffering, the wounded soldiers were being transported via convoy to field hospitals for treatment. But a million Chinese soldiers had surrounded the U.S. 1st Marines and elements of the U.S. 25th Infantry Division at the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. The convoy had been ambushed and their armed escort quickly overwhelmed. Now the helpless soldiers in the trucks were captured and at the mercy of the surging Chinese army. The Chinese, bent on the destruction of all United Nations forces in Korea, began to set the trucks on fire with the wounded men still inside. Chinese soldiers, posted at the rear of the trucks, shot any soldier who tried to escape the burning vehicles. Scenes such as this were played over and over during the Korean War. What is my point? Why in the name of Sam Hill do we do business with Chin ...

The alleged racism of the name of the National Football League's Washington team, the Redskins. That's right. All these horrific evils are happening as you read this, and the second-ranking official in charge of Human Rights at the United Nations had a meeting about the name Washington Redskins. ...

Laying in bed, eyes open, staring into the darkness, and I can't help but contemplate the extreme injustices that humanity sadly accepts and prefers not to think about. We look back in disgust and disbelief on President Roosevelt's decision not to bomb Nazi concentration camps, even though he knew what they were, yet we all sit in our comfortable houses while North Korea, in 2014 and more than half a century after the United Nations declared that Human Rights are universal, still maintains concentration camps that are a defacto death sentence for those sent there. Masses of Syrians are being brutally murdered so a tyrant can keep his control while the world hardly cares (as long as he kills with metals, not chemicals...), Venezuelans are being gunned down practically for sport because a broken government refuses to relinquish its control, and while the world gossips and gabs about the rise of China ushering in a new global order of bipolar, Sino-American leadership, we conveniently forget to mention that ...

CASSU x INDePth Presents: Beyond the “Hermit Kingdom”: Media Perception and Depiction of North Korea Media both reflects the norms and values which undergird the social and political fabric of a community and, in turn, a community’s media representations can help shape perceptions that a particular society holds of itself and others. This is no different in the context of North Korea, and the media framing of the DPRK both in South Korea and internationally shape developments on the peninsula through its ability to shape public opinion towards a country characterized as a “hermit kingdom”. How have key incidents and crises relating to North Korea been portrayed in North America and South Korea?

Dennis Rodman and Kim Jon Um of North Korea- the media seems to believe Rodman is being used for a photo opportunity, but the stakes are very high as the United States have an American citizen captured there. According to the media, no one in the United Nations, President Obama, John Kerry or anyone else in this country is requesting that Rodman act as a Liaison. The story is Un is very dangerous. So I don't see it, but is there some great plan to kidnap our former Pro NBA Players once they land in North Korea? Or is it just a game? Can't wait to see what happens with this one. Alot at stake and Rodman could hold the negotiating power to fix all that ails The United States insecurity with North Korea.
Eritrea is one of the top 5 Poorest Countries in the World There is no civil war in Eritrea: its people flee because their isolated homeland could pass as an African version of North Korea. Like the Kim regime in Pyongyang. 4: Eritrea, $705 GDP per capita War-torn East African Eritrea has had its share of violence just like Liberia, but unlike the fifth-ranked member on our list, only rumors about Eritrea's natural resources have sprung up. Major energy and materials companies haven't moved into this country, which saw its economy slugged by war with neighboring Ethiopia to start the millennium. It hasn't gotten much better for the Eritrean people since, as allegations of government corruption and abuse have turned the country into a top global producer of fleeing refugees, according to United Nations investigations. Unlike Liberia, the situation here isn't likely to get much better fast -- for either Eritreans or global companies with African ambitions, such as aforementioned ExxonMobil and PetroChina. W ...
U.S Pressing the bottom on Corruption! With such Statement by Ambassador Samantha Power, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, on International Anticorruption Day (December 9, 2013) December 9, 2013 This year marks one decade since the United Nations adopted the Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), the first legally binding international agreement to fight corruption in all of its forms. Corruption hurts individuals trying to make a fair-living. It stunts economies, undermines democracy and causes citizens to lose faith in their leaders. Just last week, Transparency International released its 2013 Corruption Index, and with countries like Sudan, North Korea and Somalia at the bottom of the list, it is clear that in societies with high levels of corruption, citizens suffer a lack of security, inadequate access to basic services and an inability to enjoy their full Human Rights. In 2011, based on the idea that open governments and societies will lead to prosperity, security and peace, Pre . ...

The fact that North Korea is a criminal state guilty of whole scale crimes against humanity seems to not bother the United Nations.
Now, I can comment on this because of my coursework related to foreign policy at the University of Denver. The word around the United Nations is what North Korean leader Kim Jong Un really wants is an apology from people who say they love his character on Two Broke Girls, but who snicker when he tells them he is just the dictator of North Korea.
Did anyone watch The Fifth Estate ( The Last Great Escape) People taking chances getting out of North Korea. What they showed is the cruelest dictator. These people have no rights what so ever. Those that have made it out could not believe how people really live. They have been told by North Korea that anyone that lives out side of North Korea have no food to eat or clothes to wear. Yet these poor souls live on very little food, and dare they say anything bad about North Korea they are put in prison camps, work from 5 am to 10 pm. Dare they speak out they are executed in public. You wonder why the United Nations can't do anything to help these people.
On the night of November 25, 1950, Chinese troops attacked United Nations troops along the Valley of the Ch'ongch'on Gang (River). It was a partial surprise - as S.L.A. Marshall later wrote "One knew. The other didn't." During this battle, Representative Charles Rangel, then Private Rangel, was wounded. When the Chinese overran his unit, he led roughly 40 other survivors to safety. North Korea has a cargo vessel named Ch'ongch'on Gang, in honor of the battle - I think it is currently impounded in Panama for attempting to illegally smuggle Cuban military gear through the Panama Canal.
On this day of 26th November, in the year 1949, The Indian Constituent Assembly adopted India's constitution presented by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar. On the same date of 26th November, in the year 1950, troops from the lumpen country of People's Republic of China launched a massive counterattack in North Korea against South Korean and United Nations forces (Battle of the Ch'ongch'on River and Battle of Chosin Reservoir), ending any hopes of a quick end to the conflict. In the year 2003 on this day Concorde made its final flight, over Bristol, England. Finally, this day in 2008 witnessed Mumbai attacks by Pakistan-sponsored Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Portrait of the NSA: No detail to small to watch by Ewen MacAskill, The Guardian Barack Obama hailed United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as a “good friend” after the two had sat down in the White House in April to discuss the issues of the day: Syria and alleged chemical weapons attacks, North Korea, Israel-Palestine, and climate change. But long before Ban’s limousine had even passed through the White House gates for the meeting, the US government knew what the Secretary General was going to talk about, courtesy of the world’s biggest eavesdropping organization, the National Security Agency. One NSA document – leaked to the Guardian by whistleblower Edward Snowden just a month after the meeting and reported in partnership with the New York Times – boasts how the spy agency had gained “access to UN Secretary General talking points prior to meeting with Potus” (president of the United States). The White House declined to comment on whether Obama had read the talking points in advan ...

Filipinos are brave. "Give me ten thousand Filipinos and I will conquer the world" Gen Douglas Mc Arthur once said. This was during the Korean War when the United Nations were being attacked by the Chinese Communists and North Korea. But the Philippines has only 1400 Filipino troops. They faced 40,000 Chinese soldiers with only rifles,machine guns,mortars and howitzers to stop the enemy.They also have 2 light tanks,a few bazookas which didn't work and not of all them had winter clothing.The communist attack was so overwhelming that the British and the Puerto Ricans retreated but the Filipinos stayed and kept fighting.They were greatly outnumbered 40 to 1 so the clerks,drivers and cooks joined the fight.They held the line,preventing the Chinese to take more land from South Korea.The Chinese army lost 7000 troops while the Filipinos lost 24 with 26 more wounded.
A "peace train" to North Korea Wednesday 16 October 2013 5:30PM Can a group of Christian leaders succeed where the United Nations and international statesmen have failed – bringing peace to the divided Korean Peninsula? A “peace train” has set out from Berlin to travel all the way across Russia and China and into North Korea. The journey of about 14,000 kilometres will end in Busan, South Korea, where the World Council of Churches will hold its General Assembly from October 30 November 8. The Council -- the world's major umbrella group of Protestant and Orthodox churches -- is trying to help open North Korea to the rest of the world, as its secretary-general, Norwegian Lutheran pastor the Rev. Dr. Olav Fykse Tveit explained to Andrew West.

AND THE END OF THE AGE In Matthew24:3 Jesus was asked, "Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?" Jesus told his apostles to look for the following signs prior to his second coming and the end of the age. 1. FALSE PROPHETS AND CHRISTS Matthew 24:5 "For many will come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and will mislead many." Matthew 24:11 "And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many." In the last several years many have claimed to be the Messiah. Jim Jones and David Koresh are examples of these false christs as well as countless others who are not as newsworthy. These false prophets are a prelude to the ultimate false christ, the antichrist. Many New Age groups, some even NGO's working for the United Nations, are anxiously awaiting the antichrist, preparing the way for his acceptance as the head of the hierarchy of gods and the one who will usher in world peace. 2. WARS Matthew 24:6 "And you will be hearing of wars and rumo ...
CANADA VIOLENCE AGAINST ABORIGINAL WOMEN IN THE COUNTRY BEING CRITICIZED BY CUBA IRAN BELARUS AND RUSSIA AT THE UNION NATIONS Cuba, Iran, Belarus and Russia used a United Nations body Thursday to criticize Canada’s Human Rights record, as the Canadian envoy rejected calls to develop a comprehensive national review to end violence against aboriginal women. Canada was responding Thursday to the UN Human Rights Council, which is conducting its Universal Periodic Review of Canada’s rights record, on a wide range of issues from poverty, immigration and the criminal justice system. Countries have their rights records reviewed every four years by the Geneva-based UN forum, but the Harper government has been skeptical in part because it allows countries with dubious rights records to criticize Canada. On Thursday, that happened again. Cuba said it deplored Canada’s rejection of one of its human-rights recommendations, while Iran took Canada to task for rejecting four that it had made. Canada is proud of its ...
Israel's prime minister says Iranians "deserve better" than their current government and that their lives could get worse if it gains nuclear weapons. In an interview with BBC Persian, Benjamin Netanyahu warned: "If they get nuclear weapons this brutal regime will be immortal, like North Korea." He also said the new President, Hassan Rouhani, could not "change the real decisions" made by the Supreme Leader. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Mr Rouhani have said they reject nuclear weapons. They insist Iran's nuclear programme is solely for peaceful purposes, but world powers suspect they are not being truthful. There has nevertheless been a recent thaw in relations between Iran and the United States, with Mr Rouhani and President Barack Obama recently discussing the issue - the first top-level conversation between the two countries for more than 30 years. On Tuesday, Iranian diplomats at the United Nations reacted angrily after Mr Netanyahu described their president as a "wolf in sheep's clothing" in a speech to ...
*The Korean War started on June 25th, 1950 and ended on July 27th, 1953. *The Korean War was fought between North Korea (along with the Chinese about halfway through the war), and the United Nations with South Korea. It was a fight against communism. *Over 3 million people died in the Korean War. *The war led to nothing. All it did was prevented communism from spreading into South Korea. No other gains were made, only many casualty losses. *The Korean War has become almost Forgotten, sometimes called The Forgotten War.

U.S., Russia agree on Syria U.N. chemical arms measure Ending weeks of diplomatic deadlock, the United States and Russia agreed on Thursday on a U.N. Security Council draft resolution that would demand Syria give up its chemical arms, but does not threaten military force if it fails to comply. Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said a deal was struck with Russia "legally obligating" Syria to give up its chemical stockpile and the measure went to the full Security Council in a closed-door meeting on Thursday night. U.N. diplomats said a vote could come within 24 hours. "Just two weeks ago, tonight's outcome seemed utterly unimaginable," Power said. "Two weeks ago, the Syrian regime had not even acknowledged the existence of its chemical weapons stockpiles." "But tonight we have a shared draft resolution that was the outcome of intense diplomacy and negotiations over the past two weeks," she said. U.S., Russian, French and British diplomats told reporters the vote could come as early ...

5 countries with the longest ongoing US sanctions... number 2 is Why? ... Starting in 1967 when Sudan broke diplomatic ties with the US following the outbreak of the Arab-Israeli war, relations have been strained between the two countries. Long accused of supporting terrorists, Sudan backed Iraq in its invasion of Kuwait in 1990, and reportedly provided sanctuary and assistance to terrorist groups including Carlos the Jackal, Osama bin Laden, and Abu Nidal. In 1997 President Bill Clinton imposed comprehensive economic, financial, and trade sanctions on Sudan because of the country’s support for international terrorism, efforts to destabilize neighboring governments, and myriad Human Rights violations including slavery and the denial of Religious Freedom. In 2005 and 2006 the United Nations issued two resolutions augmenting the international response to Sudan, particularly the Darfur region.

Near Sojong, South Korea, Private Kenneth Shadrick, a 19-year-old infantryman from Skin Fork, West Virginia, becomes the first American reported killed in the Korean War. Shadrick, a member of a bazooka squad, had just fired the weapon at a Soviet-made tank when he looked up to check his aim and was cut down by enemy machine-gun fire. Two days later, President Harry Truman announced that the United States would intervene in the Korean Conflict to stem the spread of communism, and on June 28 the United Nations approved the use of force against communist North Korea. In the opening months of the war, the U.S.-led U.N. forces rapidly advanced against the North Koreans, but in October, Chinese Communist troops entered the fray, throwing the Allies into a hasty retreat. By May 1951, the communists were pushed back to the 38th parallel, where the battle line remained for the rest of the war.
Armed Forces DAY CONCERT WITH ELCB AT THWAITES EMPIRE THEATRE, BLACKBURN, Extract from the programme reads:- "We are recognising the contribution made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces.

The Armed Forces are represented this evening by our Guests of Honour. They are Navy, Army and Air cadets from Accrington and Blackburn contingents. We are also proud to have with us representatives of the Royal British Legion (Darwen Branch) for whom this time is particularly significant. From June 1950 some 100,000 British troops served on the Korean Peninsula, many of them National Servicemen, as part of a United Nations force after North Korean troops invaded South Korea.

Veterans’ delegation to Korea The 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice next month will be attended by a New Zealand delegation including thirty Korean War veterans between the ages of 73 and 88. Veterans’ Affairs Minister Michael Woodhouse will lead the official delegation to the Republic of Korea, where Anzac, United Nations and New Zealand commemorative services will be held between 26 – 28 July. “New Zealand played an important part in the Korean War, and suffered significant losses.

North Korean defector's "impossible" dream of closing prison camps North Korea's best-known defector, Shin Dong-hyuk, dreams of making the "impossible" happen one day - ridding his secretive homeland of the kind of brutal prison camps he says he was born and raised in before a dramatic escape in 2005. Shin met senior Human Rights officials in Geneva this week to discuss a United Nations investigation into alleged crimes against humanity in North Korea, and said he would bear witness to the horrors of his life in Camp 14 to help build an eventual criminal case against North Korea's leadership. But in an interview hours before he was due to receive an award from the activist group U.N. Watch, the 30-year-old was under no illusions about the scale of the task he and others faced in their search for justice. "Maybe they can make the impossible possible," Shin said of the inquiry, launched by the U.N. Human Rights Council, which aims to gather enough information from camp survivors and other exiles to document ...
Susan Rice, who President Barack Obama today named his new National Security Advisor, will do well in her new role. I am confident of that. She will of course face challenges, often on problems where there are no good or easy answers - starting with Syria and Iran. She will be helping a president who is leading a war-weary nation with a nearly trillion dollar deficit and numerous domestic woes that compete for his time and attention, as well as the country's resources. And the Partisan problems in Washington won't make life any easier. But in taking on all of this, Rice has a number of strengths. Some are well known - her experience at the United Nations, her expertise on handling Iran and North Korea sanctions issues there (and thus working with Europeans, Russians, Chinese, and others on such problems), her previous service in government. To me, however, one set of strengths stands out as a major and often underappreciated aspect of Rice's character and personality - the ability to build and lead a team ...

I commend National Security Advisor Tom Donilon for his stellar service to President Obama and the country. I wish him the best in his future endeavors. I look forward to working with Ambassador Susan Rice in her new position as the President's National Security Advisor. She has performed an exemplary job representing the U.S. at the United Nations -- winning hard-fought battles to increase sanctions on Iran and North Korea, among other major accomplishments. I can imagine few people better qualified than Ambassador Rice to head up the President's national security team.

HI FELLOW KIWIS! This is what our glorious prime minister had to say on the topic of North Korea's threats to nuke us: (original article is on thecivilian.co.nz) *The Democratic Republic of North Korea today threatened New Zealand with a nuclear attack in response to new sanctions leveled on it by the United Nations. The isolated communist dictatorship had earlier made a similar threat against the United States, but retracted it following President Obama’s swift assurance that any ballistic missile attack against his country could be quickly and easily intercepted. Acknowledging that its initial proclamations were overzealous and unrealistic, the DPRK today reissued its threats, this time against several more vulnerable countries, including Turkmenistan, Iceland and New Zealand. Speaking from Chile, Prime Minister John Key told a pool of reporters that nothing could be done to stop the attack. “Well, you know, if they want to, what do you want me to do?” asked Key, noting that New Zealand did not po ...

China Says It Won’t Forsake North Korea, Despite Support for U.N. Sanctions By JANE PERLEZ BEIJING — China’s foreign minister said Saturday that Beijing would not abandon North Korea, reiterating China’s longstanding position that dialogue, not sanctions, is the best way to persuade the North to abandon its nuclear weapons. At a news conference during the National People’s Congress, the foreign minister, Yang Jiechi, suggested that Chinese support for tougher United Nations sanctions against North Korea should not be interpreted as a basic change in China’s attitude. “We always believe that sanctions are not the end of the Security Council actions, nor are sanctions the fundamental way to resolve the relevant issues,” said Mr. Yang, who addressed foreign policy questions from Chinese and foreign reporters. But the careful remarks masked the unparalleled plain-spoken discussions among China’s officials and analysts about the value of supporting North Korea even as it continues to develop ...
TH-blog: United Nations: Sanctions against North Korea after threat of pre ... The UN Security Council on Thursday…
Diplomatic Corps: The DCU Government has issued a brief statement, saying of its concern over the potential of a new conflict developing on the Korean Peninsula as North Korea threatens with cold-war rhetoric that it has torn up the ceasefire agreement signed more than 60 years ago that has led to an uneasy peace for both North & South, by the proxy war that the US and Soviet Union participated in. The DCU is also concerned of the potential that the North will carry out an arms race ultimatum in defiance and "defense" against United Nations forces stationed in the peninsula. The Supreme Commander has stated that with other domestic problems occuring around the world, it would be "foolish, misguided and wholly naive to rely on the United State's reassurance to protect the UN allies in the South without leading to a regional nuclear disaster" He also stated that "everything should be done to give the North the chance to 'cool down', but also to communicate that a nuclear war in the region would be disastero ...
U.S. Commander Reaffirms U.S. Commitment to South Korea: WASHINGTON, March 7, 2013 - The top U.S. and United Nations commander in Korea today reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to South Korea's defense and urged North Korea to cease provocative actions. Army Gen. James D. Thurman, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, United Nations Command and Combined Forces Command, addressed a recent North Korean threat to nullify the 1953 armistice that ended open warfare on the Korean Peninsula. "For 60 years, the armistice agreement has ensured peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula," he said. "It concerns me when any signatory to a mutual agreement makes a public statement contrary to that agreement. "As the UNC commander, I am charged to fully enforce the conditions of the armistice," Thurman continued. "The success of the armistice has enabled the Republic of Korea to become a vibrant democracy, and we remain ready to defend the Republic of Korea." The United States calls on North Korea to refrain from additional pro ...
North Koreans Threaten to Nullify 1953 Armistice Agreement By Jim Garamone American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON, March 5, 2013 – North Korea has threatened to nullify the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War. The North Korean rhetoric appears to be in response to threatened United Nations sanctions that may be put in place following the Feb. 12 North Korean test of a nuclear weapon, DOD officials said. The North Korean Central News Agency quoted officials in the North saying the threat is because the United States and South Korea are holding annual military exercises. North Korea “will achieve nothing by threats or provocations, which will only further isolate North Korea and undermine international efforts to ensure peace and stability in Northeast Asia,” said Army Lt. Col. Cathy Wilkinson, a Pentagon spokeswoman. She said the two exercises -- Key Resolve and Foal Eagle -- are annual training exercises designed to increase alliance readiness to defend South Korea, protect the region and ...
Ambassador Susan Rice tells reporters at the United Nations that North Korea's latest, "highly-provocative" and "regrettable" act of testing a nuclear weapon "directly violates" Security Council resolution and threatens international peace, "vowing a swift, credible and strong response."...Nothing Yet! Maybe these women should give Jon a time out.
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia and China said on Friday they would oppose any foreign military intervention in North Korea over its recent nuclear test. The two countries' foreign ministers condemned last week's test but said any action against North Korea had to be agreed at the United Nations, where Russia and China have the right of veto as permanent members of the Security Council. "We are against the carrying out of a nuclear test in North Korea," Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi told a joint news conference after talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow. "The U.N. Security Council should give an adequate response ... but the action should be directed towards peace on the Korean Peninsula," he said. Lavrov said China and Russia had agreed that it was "vitally important not to ... allow the situation to be used as a pretext for military intervention." North Korea's latest test, its third since 2006, prompted warnings from Washington and others that more sanctions would be imposed on ...
SHOCK: Obama's Asia Team Has No Korean Experts As the world wakes up to the reality of a heightened crisis with North Korea following its latest nuclear test, the Obama administration finds itself with remarkably few Korea experts at the top of its Asia policy team. North Korea confirmed Monday it had detonated a nuclear bomb for the third time, blatantly disregarding United Nations resolutions and the repeated warnings of the international community. The U.N. Security Council scrambled to call a Tuesday meeting on the incident and U.S. President Barack Obama issued a strongly worded statement of condemnation early Tuesday morning. "This is a highly provocative act that, following its December 12 ballistic missile launch, undermines regional stability, violates North Korea's obligations under numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions, contravenes its commitments under the September 19, 2005 Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks, and increases the risk of proliferation," Obama's statement said. ...
June 1950. The great victory of World War II was still a vivid memory. The demobilization of America's wartime strength had been accomplished very rapidly. A growing fear of Joseph Stalin's ambitions was reflected in the new terms iron curtain and Cold War, but much energy and hope had focused on such developments as the United Nations, the Marshall Plan, and NATO. Korea, left divided after the war into the Communist North and the U.S.-supported South, was a source of tension but not immediate concern. The United States was content largely to leave to a UN commission the problem of North Korea's threatening stance toward South Korea. The Russians had withdrawn their troops from the North in 1948; at the UN's suggestion, America recalled its troops from South Korea in June 1949, though leaving behind much military materiel and some 500 advisers. In a speech in January 1950 outlining American policy in Asia after the establishment of Communist China, Secretary of State Dean Acheson did not include South Kor ...
(We must clean house in Washington D.C.) ~stormie North Korea Nuclear Test Draws Unusual Response From Rice Tuesday, February 12, 2013 As a nuclear North Korea proves once again that it's improving its technology and moving close to marrying a small nuclear device with a more powerful rocket, the United States' initial reaction Tuesday was a big *** hum. Asked Tuesday morning whether she expects a strong condemnation from the United Nations, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said: "We'll do the usual drill." It was a surprising response to an international incident that was largely seen as a threat to the U.S. and one that prompted the U.N. Security Council to call an emergency meeting of world representatives. "I don't know how you come up with a more dangerous scenario than this," Gordon Chang, author of "The Coming Collapse of China," said on Fox News. "This is a very bad dynamic for us." North Korea said it successfully detonated a miniaturized nuclear device at a northeastern test site Tuesday. South Korean ...

After the seizure of Seoul, in accordance with United Nation’s resolution to continue advance into North Korea, the 1st Marine Division, commanded by Maj. Gen. Oliver P. Smith, landed at Wonsan on 26 October 1950. The Division was under the operational command of X Corps, commanded by Maj. Gen. Edward M. Almond, USA. The 7th Regimental Combat Team (RCT), commanded by Col. Homer L. Litzenberg, had been ordered to move to Hamhung and relieve the 26th Republic of Korea (ROK) Regiment engaged with Chinese Communists in the north. While marching on the road towards the Changjin Reservoir, also referred by its Japanese name as Chosin Reservoir, the Korean regiment had encountered fierce resistance near Sudong on 28 October. Meanwhile, the Chinese forces had also checked the advance of Gen. Walton H. Walker’s Eighth Army south of the border, pushing them back to the Chongchon River. However, United Nations forces had no credible information on the numbers of Chinese troops accumulated across Yalu River on th ...
Cagayan braces for NoKor rocket launch By Charlie Lagasca | Updated April 8, 2012 - 12:00am BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines – The disaster council of Cagayan province is ready for any eventuality relating to the planned launch by North Korea of its observation satellite next week. Bonifacio Cuarteros, disaster council head, said they are just “waiting for any announcement or instructions from the NDRRMC (National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council).” “This is a national issue. We cannot just act on our own. I know our national government is coordinating matters concerning North Korea with the United Nations but we are just being prepared,” he said. Officials in other Cagayan Valley towns within the possible trajectory of the North Korean rocket to be launched anytime from April 12 to 16, were also ordered to be on alert for any falling debris. Reports said that the missile launch would be on April 15, the 100th birthday of the late Kim Jong-Il, former president of the Democrat ...
Google Earth exposes North Korea's secret prison camps Human Rights activists are turning to Google Earth to identify the vast network of prison camps that dot the North Korean countryside and hold as many as 200,000 people deemed hostile to the regime.  A number of structures have been identifed at camp 22. These include guard houses and burial grounds Photo: Google/One Free Korea By Julian Ryall, Tokyo 10:19AM GMT 25 Jan 2013 Rights groups are pushing the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to open an international investigation into Pyongyang's "deplorable" record on its citizens' rights, including a system of political prisons that has operated for more than 50 years. Pyongyang insists that the camps do not exist and are merely foreign propaganda, but the advent of high-resolution, free images from outer space has disproved that claim. On January 18, the North Korean Economy Watch website announced that a new camp had been identified alongside an existing detention facility in Kaechon ...
Obama’s nomination of Chuck Hagel was meant to send a message, and he has: Obama is not serious about stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons program, and that Tehran has an anti-Israel ally in the president’s war cabinet. Chuck Hagel’s misguided policies on Iran and the Middle East have already received considerable coverage. Chief among them is his opposition to sanctions on Iran. Both in 2001 and 2008 (at which point the United Nations had already sanctioned Iran) Hagel steadfastly opposed sanctions against Tehran. Hagel has tried to explain away those votes, but he has also opposed sanctions against countries such as North Korea, Syria, Libya, and Cuba. This aversion to sanctions is incompatible with Obama’s strategy on Iran, and it’s also flat-out wrong (the progress we’ve seen in Burma is a direct result of sanctions). Hagel supporters say that the “Jewish lobby” is using paranoia and scare tactics to overhype the threat of a nuclear Iran. But Obama himself said that “a nuclear-armed Ira ...
Google boss tells North to get wired (The Standard) Google chairman Eric Schmidt said yesterday he had told North Korea it would not develop unless it embraces internet freedom, as he returned from a controversial visit to the communist state. Bill Richardson, the former US ambassador to the United Nations who led the trip, said he called on Pyongyang to adopt a moratorium on ballistic missile and nuclear tests following its widely criticized rocket launch last month. Talks were also held about an American citizen who is being detained in the country, Richardson said at Beijing airport. Schmidt said he told North Korean officials they should open up the country's internet "or they will remain behind." "As the world becomes increasingly connected, their decision to be virtually isolated is very much going to affect their physical world, their economic growth and so forth, and it will make it harder for them to catch up economically," Schmidt said. Analysts say access to the internet there is for the super- ...
Why poor nations are more corrupt than the rich? Which countries in the world are the least corrupt, according to Transparency International's (TI) latest Corruption Perceptions Index? Denmark, Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, Singapore and Switzerland. Their average per capita income: $55,000. And which are the most corrupt (the word is applied only to the public sector - so, essentially, government corruption)? Somalia, North Korea, Afghanistan, Sudan and Myanmar. Their average per capita income? Less than $1,000. The richest countries are also the cleanest, while the poorest are perceived as the most corrupt. The question begs itself: do corruption levels mirror per capita income levels, just as the United Nations' Human Development Index does? So it would seem, from a closer look at TI's latest list of 174 countries, ranked using information from 13 different international data sources. Take India. TI ranks it 94th out of 174 countries. But of the 93 countries that have a better corruption ranking, as ma ...
North Korea : Long-Range Rocket launched on 11 December 2012 Defying warnings from the United Nations and the United States, North Korea has carried out what it calls a “space launch” but what most of the international community regard as a provocative test of ballistic missile technology. The three-stage liquid-fueled rocket lifted off the launch pad at Tochang-ri on North Korea's west coast at about 9:50 Wednesday morning. Indications are that the first stage, as planned, dropped into the Yellow Sea while the second stage fell into waters east of the Philippines. North Korea has deemed the launch from the Sohae Space Center a success. In a special broadcast, the television announcer in Pyongyang says the Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite was placed into orbit after being shot into space on the Unha-3 rocket. She says this is the second successful satellite launch for the country. The North American Aerospace Defense Command says “initial indications are that the missile deployed an object that appeared t ...

Did Romney just say that he's never said Russia was our number one geopolitical foe?In a March 26 interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, he criticized Obama for changing tactics on missile defense and nuclear weapons development, and said the president seemed to be willing to negotiate with Russians on matters he was hiding from the American people. Said Romney: "This is without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe. They fight for every cause for the world's worst actors. The idea that he has more flexibility in mind for Russia is very, very troubling indeed." Blitzer asked Romney if he thought Russia is a bigger foe than Iran, China or North Korea. "I'm saying in terms of a geopolitical opponent, the nation that lines up with the world's worst actors," Romney said. "Of course the greatest threat that the world faces is a nuclear Iran, and a nuclear North Korea is already troubling enough. But when these terrible actors pursue their course in the world and we go to the United Nations looking for ways to stop ...
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu feels so strongly imposing a “red line” on Iran’s nuclear program that he demonstrated by using a magic marker to draw an actual red line on a bomb diagram during his speech to the United Nations on Thursday.
I am here to sound the alarm about our direction as a human family,” said Ban Ki-moon, He warned about the implications of the unbridled war in Syria, the unresolved Palestinian statehood issue, Israel-Iran war rhetoric and unchecked Islamic fury over an anti-Muslim video. In his wide-ranging speech, Mr. Ban also said global action on climate change remains unfinished business and food prices are too volatile. The economic and political crisis across Africa’s Sahel region is not getting sufficient attention, Mr. Ban said, and North Korea had to do more to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula. He pointed to some positive developments, including a halving in extreme poverty in the past decade; the democratic transition in the Arab world; and Africa’s booming economic growth. He said one of the most pressing immediate issues confronting the United Nations is the Syria conflict, which began in March 2011 and is now causing regional instability. “This is a serious and growing threat to international peace ...

China's New Dictatorship Diplomacy China is often accused of supporting a string of despots, nuclear proliferators, and genocidal regimes, shielding them from international pressure and thus reversing progress on Human Rights and humanitarian principles. But over the last two years, Beijing has been quietly overhauling its policies toward pariah states. It strongly denounced North Korea's nuclear test in October 2006 and took the lead, with the United States, in drafting a sweeping United Nations sanctions resolution against Pyongyang. Over the past year, it has voted to impose and then tighten sanctions on Iran, it has supported the deployment of a United Nations-African Union (UN-AU) force in Darfur, and in Ethiopian politics.

Why do we compete with North Korea again?... They just won one of their infrequent Medals... I love their Olympic Committee Info: Although North Korean athletes stay at the Olympic Village, they do so in a "private compound", and are required to stay inside except during practice and competition. They are forbidden from sightseeing in the host country, or from interacting with athletes from other delegations, however they do participate in the Parade of Athletes at the opening ceremony, and witness the closing ceremony. North Korea has never participated in the Paralympic Games. Persons with disabilities in North Korea (with the exception of veterans) are reportedly locked away in camps, and "subjected to harsh and sub-human conditions", although the United Nations reports that the government is "beginning to consider welfare for the disabled".
North Korea in Mendocino? so I went to town to buy something before everything closed up and I see this older lady smoking a cigarette in front of the Mendocino Hotel and I say, "Nice out tonight" ...she replies in a German accent and we get to talking, she asked me if I was staying at the hotel, I'm like, "no I live a mile up the road" and she says, "ah you're so lucky" so anyways I ask her where she is lives and she is like, "you'll never guess, but I tell you anyway" in her thick accent, "Pyong Yang" I'm like "what? the capital of the People's Democratic Republic of Korea?" Claudia liked that I knew the official name, & then I think I said something like, "what are you, an intelligence agent?" She smiled and said, "No, I work for the United Nations." I'm like UNESCO?

A United Nations agency under fire for shipments of computers and other sophisticated equipment to North Korea and Iran has apparently rejected a request by the U.S. State Department to conduct an independent probe into the controversy, drawing a stern rebuke from top lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
An organization within the United Nations, WIPO, the World Intellectual Property Organization shipped Hewlett Packard computers to North Korea and Iran violating the agreement under which HP donated the equipment. When the violation was made public, HP and a number of US officials asked for an independent investigation to determine how the violations happened. WIPO declined to be investigated. It is time to kiss the UN good bye.
Correction to earlier post. Congressman, When you took the oath of office, you swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. You swore to uphold all of the Constitution, not just the parts that you agree with. As a member of the military, I took a very similar oath. Unlike you, I followed that oath. Recently, you violated the solemn oath. You sent a letter to Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton and others encouraging the signing of the United Nations “Arms Trade Treaty”. A Treaty, that may severely undermine the authority of the Second Amendment of the Constitution. You have violated the trust of the citizens of your District and all Arizonans. You apparently do not have any understanding of the value of gun ownership by individual law abiding citizens. Private gun owners in the United States are the last line of defense of this county. The United States has an active and reserve force of less than 4 million. China has an active force of over 4 million and North Korea exceeds ...
Today I went to New York to testify before the United Nations to stop the Arms Trade Treaty...a treaty that could ban every rifle, pistol and shotgun you own...a treaty that could turn our God-given Right to Keep and Bear Arms into a U.N.-regulated privilege... ...A treaty that has the full support of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who are eager to COOPERATE with the U.N. With the stroke of a pen, Obama invited Syria, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, and the world's worst tyrants and dictators to rewrite our Constitution and lay waste to the Second Amendment. After the U.N. delayed my testimony and tried to deny me a chance to speak out on behalf of gun owners like you...I stood up to those tyrants and said there will be NO COMPROMISE. American gun owners will never surrender our Second Amendment freedom...period! But my words fell on deaf ears. Thanks to the Obama administration, this treaty is marching forward, and I need your help to stop it. First, take a moment right now to si ...
Here we go again. Way to go Obama!!!

A real step toward an infringement on our 2nd amendment.. Way to go Obama...
The House Foreign Affairs Committee announced Monday that it was initiating an inquiry into allegations that a United Nations agency provided sophisticated computers and technology to the governments of Iran and North Korea.
My Dad served, my uncles served, I served. I hate war and the political and commercial lies leading to it. Today, I read the story of 32 dead Syrian children, I read of the ineffectual United Nations which remains a debating society, I read of the stonewalling Russians with a Syrian naval base and who depend upon Syrian oil. And suddenly all that wove into an intestinal knot creating anger that precedes war. Then remembrance pulled me back to reality. Words like Sunni, Shiite, Alewite, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and the words, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend," instilled reticence. I thought of acronyms like 9/11, TSA, IED, WMD, SNAFU and FUBAR; roadside bombs, suicide vests, regime change, American interest, multiple tours. I thought about the impending Israel/Iran detonation and the Israeli/Palestinian convulsion. There's North Korea's bluster, Han Chinese diluting and dismantling Tibetan culture, 6 million children that die every year from hunger related causes, much of it through war. I feel tears ...
