Impotent UN

Posted on July 10, 2009


Aung San Suu Kyi is back on trial today in Burma after a failed attempt by the UN to have her freed.

Did anyone really expect the UN to help in the slightest? Surely this is just another example of how impotent and inept it has become?

And how about this for a bit of irony, with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon telling junta leader General Than Shwe: “I appreciate your commitment to moving your country forward.”

You just couldn’t make this stuff up. Meanwhile a country remains enslaved and its democratically elected leader, who has lost everything through her commitment to freeing her country, imprisoned.
