I'm voting for John Kerry

before I vote against him...

[start rant]

Silly isn't it...

Problem is that Nominee Kerry resembles this remark.

The Orwellian, almost surrealistic state of affairs in American "politics" has gone from the sublime to well, you know... Howard Dean, Al Gore, Nancy Pelosie, The 9/11 grandstand (grandstand) be bop she bang bang (grandstand)...

And now the robotic talking points machines Kerry likes to call his surrogates are trying to convince the American people that there is some evil "Republican Attack Machine" out there attacking all their patriotism...

People who are not mindless zombies do not believe this for one second.

Ask any question of any of his surrogates (Or him) and the answer is always

A) Well Pres Bush has done X Y and Z

B) Don't attack my patriotism

C) Kerry fought in Vietnam and that's really good...

I have however finally notice a flippyflop in a distinctly starboard direction... (The infamous predictable move to the "center"..)

Thing is, if he's really telling the truth (and not just waiting to be elected to flip back.) then there is no difference between him and Pres Bush...

Except for Kerry claiming he would have our allies and the UN involved more...



You know our Allies and the UN who were making billions of dollars from the corrupt Saddam Hussein regime? But of course they would have given up the BILLIONS they were stuffing into their own pockets to do the right thing for the Iraqi people...

I mean just because people were starving in Iraq while they were getting rich off the money meant to feed those people is no reason to think they wouldn't have authorized force to end their meal ticket...

A recent report by the General Accounting Office in Washington accused Saddam Hussein's government of having pocketed more than $10 billion from the six-year oil-for-food program, which used Iraqi oil sales to pay for food, medicine and other goods between 1997 and 2002. In February, a document from Iraqi ministries reportedly cited Mr. Sevan as having received oil allotments himself. Mr. Sevan denied the charges in a written statement, but declined to discuss the issue publicly.

The e-mail message to what one United Nations official called Mr. Sevan's "inner circle" is his first comment on the allegations of corruption and cover-up that have damaged the United Nations at a time when it is grappling to shape an interim government in Iraq scheduled to take power on June 30, and to assist the country in planning elections and drawing up a constitution.

In his e-mail message, Mr. Sevan said he was the victim of an "intense smear campaign." He defended the oil-for-food program as having made "a real difference in the daily lives of the average Iraqi people." As long as economic sanctions were in place, he added, "there was no alternative to the program." But, he continued, "it could have been better administered had we been allowed by the member states to do so."

Mr. Sevan did not explain in his e-mail message how the Security Council had hampered him from effectively administering the sprawling program. But diplomats and United Nations officials said it was what one called "common knowledge" that member states were ignoring the widespread complaints about kickbacks and payoffs by Saddam Hussein's government so that their companies could continue being part of the lucrative program.

Fred Eckhard, the spokesman for Secretary General Kofi Annan, said that because the e-mail message was a private communication, the United Nations would not comment on its contents.

AND

(This is a big and)

the UN Is once again not only ignoring buy COMPLICIT in genocide...

I don't use this word lightly...

As you are reading this people are likely being raped and dumped into mass graves in Sudan by an Arab government against a black population...

Many refugees fleeing the violence allege the militias are carrying out serious widespread abuses that amount to crimes against humanity, rape, arbitrary and racial killings as well as the destruction of homes and civilian areas.

Earlier this month, Sudan's government and two main rebel groups signed a temporary cease-fire agreement to allow humanitarian aid into the war-ravaged western region of the country.

SONIC:But this aid has not been allowed in and the starvation has only gotten worse. And of course it's getting worse. That is the whole point of Genocide... This article is a little old (Not Melanie style 3 years old but a month old) but I thought you would like this information from the Axis of Quagmire so you might believe it... If you CARE look it up, look up what has happened since this article, the starvation is only worse... (And yes I have promoted CNN to full membership in the Axis of Quagmire.)

U.S. President George Bush has demanded Sudan's government end mass fighting with rebels, calling the nation's civil war "one of the worst humanitarian tragedies of our time."

U.N. human rights investigators have spent days trying to get into Darfur but Sudan had initially refused access.

However, permission has now been granted and the five-member team left Geneva Tuesday, arriving in Sudan's capital, Khartoum, on Wednesday.

Dunt-Dut-Dut-Daaaaaaaaa A five member team... Yawn... [sarcasm]I'm sure this will quell the genocide in nothing flat....[/sarcasm]

The team has already interviewed Darfur refugees in Chad, who have raised "serious allegations of a troubling nature," according to a statement from the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Oh yes tut-tut and tsk-tsk... Troubling... (How about GENOCIDE you self imprtant bastards... People are K*cking DYING!!!!!!!!!!!)

Earlier this month, U.N. Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Jan Egeland reported an organized, "scorched-earth" policy of ethnic cleansing in Darfur.

Egeland said there were credible and frequent reports that Janjaweed militias, which are Arab and allied to the Sudanese Government, had committed atrocities -- including murders, rapes and acts of looting and destruction -- against local black Africans, especially members of the Fur, Zaghawas and Massalit ethnic communities.

A British journalist who managed to cross the border into Darfur by wearing a disguise, told CNN earlier this month that he witnessed evidence of genocide in the region, including "hastily dug graves and a pile of bodies" in the village of Tadera.

"What I saw was village after village which has been burnt down," Phil Cox said on CNN's International Correspondents program.

"Usually there are bodies around the villages. There are mass graves outside. When I say mass graves, I mean large pits in the earth, maybe 10 to 20 bodies in them, and these pits, 20 to 30 pits around the villages."

Cox said he uncovered recordings of Sudanese bomber pilots ordering attacks on civilian villages.

"I have interviewed Sudanese government soldiers, who were told to attack villages and when they got there they only found civilians." Cox said.

"I have interviewed the refugees and civilians from these villages who testified to this."

After extensive reporting in the region, Cox said he has "come to the conclusion that the Sudanese government have a systematic intention of removing many black Africans from Darfur by violent means."

On the heels of the 10th anniversary since the Rwanda genocide left nearly a million people dead in 100 days, Cox said not much has changed.

"The world is not dealing with this. We know it is happening. Ignorance is not an excuse now. And in the light of these commemorations and talk about Rwanda, it comes as increasingly double standards again by the international community," he said.

Sadly it's not a double standard... It's the standard standard... Ignore all Genocide... Perhaps pass a resolution against America for not preventing.. (Or if they do prevent it pass a resolution condemning them for preventing it...)

And what's really funny (If you consider 30,000 dead black people so far "funny") is that Sudan is on the UN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION WHICH OVERSEES THIS SORT OF THING!!!

The United Nations and Red Cross have been providing cover for terrorists – literally. And American taxpayers are footing some of the bill.

Last week, an Israeli television station aired footage of armed Arab terrorists in southern Gaza using an ambulance owned and operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees. Palestinian gunmen used the UNRWA emergency vehicle as getaway transportation after murdering six Israeli soldiers in Gaza City on May 11. The footage shows two ambulances with flashing lights pull onto a street. Shots and shouts ring out during the nighttime raid. A gang of militants piles into one of the supposedly neutral ambulances, clearly marked "U.N." with the agency's blue flag flying from the roof, which then speeds away from the scene.

AccessMiddleEast.org, a nonprofit global news monitoring service, posted the video (shot by a Reuters TV cameraman) on its website last week. To date, Access Middle East Managing Director Richard Bardenstein in Israel informs me, not a single U.S. television news station has expressed interest in showing the footage to American viewers.

Nope no bias there. American TV is just as patriotic as everybody else... They wouldn't protect the UN...

Abu Ghraib for almost 4 weeks straight now...

Not a peep about the quagmire in the UN.... (And believe me, if this had ANYTHING to do with Pres Bush it would be 24/7 and a quagmire.)
