US to blame for food crisis

The Dictators' Roman Holiday

In a display of arrogance and hypocrisy that was outrageous even for the United Nations, UN food development officials last week accused the United States of raising global food prices by subsidizing ethanol production.

Actually, the outrage began even earlier.

Only the United Nations would invite a dictator who has purposefully starved his own people to a summit on the international food crisis. But that is precisely what happened in Rome last week. Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, who has starved his political enemies and channeled food aid to only favored groups, was in attendance, as was the Iranian dictator, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It has already been one year since the U.S. Congress voted 411-2 to call on the UN Security Council to punish Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for violating the UN Charter and the UN Convention on Genocide for his repeated incitement of genocide against the Israeli people, yet the Iranian dictator is still welcome at UN events.

True to form, Ahmadinejad used the international spotlight to once again predict the demise of the state of Israel and accuse the U.S. of plotting an attack on him.

Mugabe accused the West, not his own genocidal policies, of starving his people.

In other words, it was a typical gathering for the United Nations

That stuff there makes my blood boil.

I remember when I took a tour of the UN I couldn't help but be angry the whole time. Toward the end of the tour they took us into the chamber where all the countries meet to listen to speeches. That's when the guide told us that each country that is a member of the UN pays a percentage of the UN's budget. She said it was structured by how much each country could afford to pay and then names some country I have never heard of as the country that pays the least. Then she continues on to say that during special circumstances the UN asks the larger members to help out with special relief. That's when I asked her what country pays the most percentage into the UN. She quietly replies "the United States." Then I asked her what country pays the most extra relief when asked to, she quietly replied, "the United States." Then I replied "It sounds like the UN runs much like the Democrats of this country, the ones that have all the wealth are forced to pay the most to others." She didn't like that very much and didn't field any more questions from me for the rest of the tour.

Just though I would share that with you all.
