New Oxymoron: U.N. Prosecution

Posted by Mark on May 31, 2007

Hard to believe, but it’s true. The United Nations will attempt to prosecute those who are suspected of assassinating former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri.

A sharply divided U.N. Security Council voted Wednesday to create an international criminal tribunal to prosecute the masterminds of the February 2005 suicide bombing that killed former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri and 22 others.

The vote will lead to the creation of the first U.N.-backed criminal tribunal in the Middle East, raising expectations that Hariri’s killers will be held accountable.

Held accountable?


Ah…I feel better. This may go down as the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of- since….well since, the BURQINI. The U.N. couldn’t prosecute a co-worker at a Congolese pedophile convention much less a couple of vicious murderers from the Middle East.

And oh yah…let me remind everyone….the United States provides 21% of the annual U.N. operating budget- gotta love that…..when you care enough to give the very best!
