Ban Ki-moon has very close ties with the American government.  

He earned a Master of Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. He further received an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws from the University of Washington. He has been posted twice to the South Korean embassy in Washington, D.C. Between these two assignments he served as Director-General for American Affairs in 1990–1992. He was the foreign minister of South Korea from January 2004 to November 2006 and in February 2006, he began to campaign for the office of Secretary-General.

While he is continuously talking in a hypocrite way about the ‘Syrian Civil War’ and he continuously criticizes the Syrian government, he remains silent about the American en Saudi-Arabian arms deliveries to the so called ‘Free Syrian Army’ and Syrian terrorist groups. Yesterday a top commander of a foreign-backed group fighting against the Syrian government said he has received a 35-ton arms shipment from Saudi Arabia…

On March 23, 2011, the U.N. Security Council adopted a wide-ranging resolution recommending ‘humanitarian’ and military action inside Libya. Both U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa were assigned key roles in “coordinating” the implementation of the mandate. Just like now, Ban Ki-moon was calling for “an immediate end to violence by all parties’.  Just like now, he was talking about ‘chemical weapons’ and he called for a ‘no-fly zone’ which was just a pretext to bomb Lybia and to destroy the regime of Colonel Gadaffi. While the Lybian infrastructure was completely destroyed, he said the UN-mandated military operation was ‘proving effective in protecting civilians’. 

Recently Ban Ki-moon is echoing the Russian en Syrian proposes for a ‘political dialogue’ but at the same time he imposes unreasonable requirements that makes such a dialogue impossible. The current United States Secretary of State John Forbes Kerry, who expects a failure of political dialogue, said ‘recent military gains by Assad’s forces were only temporary’. So it is clear that the American government still hopes on a military intervention. 

It is certainly not good for the credibility of the UN that its Secretary-General, as a friend to U.S. national interests in the United Nations, only advances U.S. and western-backed approaches in the Middle East, North Africa, and North Korea.

I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world.

    BAN URGES ACTION ON SYRIA

    Ban said none of the Arab leaders ousted during the Arab Spring uprisings were removed with outside help.

    “These changes of regime were done by the people, not by the intervention of any foreign forces, including the United Nations,” Ban said.

    In addition to Gaddafi, the long-serving presidents of Tunisia and Egypt were forced out, paving the way for elections that Western nations hope will install democratic governments. Yemen’s president was also forced to cede power to his deputy.

    Ban said he was pleased that the concept of taking action to protect civilians — often referred to as the “responsibility to protect” or R2P — appeared to be gaining momentum.

    But he reiterated that some kind of concerted international action was needed on Syria, where the United Nations says more than 5,000 civilians have been killed in a government crackdown on pro-democracy protesters this year.

    “This cannot go on,” he said. “In the name of humanity, it is time for the international community to act.”

    Last month, Russia and China vetoed a European-drafted Security Council resolution that would have condemned the Syrian clampdown and threatened President Bashar al-Assad’s government with possible sanctions.

    Mar 18, 2011 – Beyond Mandate: The UNSC Resolution on No-Fly-Zone against Libya
    http://www.milligazette.com/news/903-beyond-mandate-the-unsc-resolution-on-no-fly-zone-against-libya

    The No-fly-zone resolution of the UN Security Council on March 18 is a most trying time for people who can see the total moral and political collapse of the UN as a world organisation expressing universalism. This resolution is slap on the face of peace, security, dignity and freedom of the Libyan people and the African Union who as African community opposed such moves against Libya. This resolution contradicts the purpose of the UN Charter itself which protects the sovereign rights of member-countries to maintain law and order within their borders. The resolution is condemnable as it also defies the objectives of the Non-Aligned Movement. The UNSC is acting as a club of a few European states, the Arab League and GCC which have shown their slavish submission to the US which is in the habit of chasing and attacking weak countries.

    I condemn all those who either voted for this resolution or maintained abstention. This is a painful moment after Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine. In these cases, the UN and its key players have shown their true colours, dualism and hypocrisy in taking any military action against Israel which has been murdering Palestinians and playing with their dignity and human rights. It is a shameful moment for them to have allowed the passage of a dangerous and illegitimate resolution.

    Coming to the dangerous aspects of this resolution, I am perturbed over phrases and wordings deliberately crafted by the US and Zionists: ‘to take all necessary measures to protect civilians and civilian places’. This is not simply a resolution for a no-fly zone but a total approval of naked aggression against the Libyan people under Chapter VII of the UN Charter to get full freedom to bomb Libya by all means without any conditions.

    It is an all out war against Libya. The “No-fly-zone” is basically meant for preventing a country’s planes to use its own sovereign airspace. This resolution has been approved under the name of “no-fly-zone” but its nature is much more dangerous. The role of the Arab League and the GCC shows the poverty of minds of rulers who are most corrupt and subservient to foreign powers. Their policies are not free and their behaviour is far from that independent nations. This kind of resolution should have been passed against Israel long ago in order to protect the Palestinians from the the daily crimes of Israel which is supported and encouraged by the US.

    In its weekly report (10-16 March 2011), the PCHR records the death of two Palestinians by an IOF air strike in the Gaza Strip. Two Palestinian workers were wounded in the same attack. Three buildings on the targeted site were destroyed. Illegal Israeli settlers escalated attacks on Palestinian civilians and their properties in the West Bank. PCHR documented 40 recent attacks by Israeli settlers in the West Bank. The settlers burnt four cars and a tractor, and damaged seven vehicles. A number of Palestinian civilians suffered from tear gas inhalation fired by IOF soldiers who escorted Israeli settlers. IOF uprooted 400 olives trees in Beit Dajan village, east of Nablus. IOF continued to target Palestinian workers, farmers and fishermen in border areas in the Gaza Strip.

    IOF continues to use force against peaceful protests in the West Bank. IOF arrested two international human rights defenders. IOF conducted 47 incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank. IOF arrested 66 Palestinian civilians, including six children. Fifty two detainees are from ‘Awarta village, southeast of Nablus. Israel has continued to impose a total siege on the OPT and has isolated the Gaza Strip from the outside world. Israel has continuously closed all border crossings to the Gaza Strip for over three years.

    The illegal Israeli-imposed closure of the Gaza Strip, which has steadily tightened since June 2007, has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the Gaza Strip. IOF have continued to impose severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians throughout the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem. Thousands of Palestinian civilians from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip continue to be denied access to Jerusalem. IOF has established checkpoints in and around Jerusalem severely restricting Palestinian access to the city. Civilians are frequently prevented from praying at al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. There are approximately 585 permanent roadblocks, and manned and unmanned checkpoints across the West Bank.

    When complete, the illegal Annexation Wall will stretch over 724 kms around the West Bank further isolating the entire Palestinian population. Stretches of 350 kms of the Wall have already been constructed. Approximately 99% of the Wall has been constructed inside the West Bank itself, further confiscating Palestinian land. At least 65% of the main roads that lead to 18 Palestinian communities in the West Bank are closed or fully controlled by IOF. There are approximately 500 kms of restricted roads across the West Bank. In addition, approximately one third of the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem, is inaccessible to Palestinians without a permit issued by the IOF. These permits are extremely difficult to obtain.

    Certainly the UNSC resolution against Libya is not for democracy or freedom of people but for destroying it as they destroyed Iraq earlier. It will not bring freedom as we can see in Baghdad, Basra, Kirkuk and Erbil where Americans are secure but not the Iraqis. Certainly it will not uphold the principle of the UN in this case as it is selective, prejudicial, unfair and obsessive imposition of the Western mindset aided and abetted by the slavish mindset of Arab rulers. It will be a precedent for a long series of violations of the international law. The role of Ban-ki-Moon is like an American bureaucrat. Today, the whole UN edifice and its chorus for nations’ freedom, unity and dignity got dissolved in the ocean of its own blunderous slavishness. Today, I have lost total faith in the UN and will not entertain any expectation from it until and unless its nature and actions change in the interests of the Mankind.
