On September 6 of this year, UN Ambassador Samantha Power told her fellow Progressives at the Center for American Progress that she hoped a team of UN investigators could write a report that would convince Iran to give up their support for Assad.
In a mind-blowing example of what it means to be book-smart and have not an ounce of common sense, Powers said this:
“We worked with the UN to create a group of inspectors and then worked for more than six months to get them access to the country on the logic that perhaps the presence of an investigative team in the country might deter future attacks,” Power said at the Center for American Progress as she made the case for intervening in Syria.
“Or, if not, at a minimum, we thought perhaps a shared evidentiary base could convince Russia or Iran — itself a victim of Saddam Hussein’s monstrous chemical weapons attacks in 1987-1988 — to cast loose a regime that was gassing it’s people,” she said.
This depraved level of naiveté gives truth to the fact that our country is being run by idiots.
This same idiot who thinks Iran would read a report that would convince them to turn away from Assad, also wants us to strike Syria because it is part of the Power Doctrine which says a nation must give up a ‘pinch’ of sovereignty for international cooperation and security.
Power supports the UN doctrine of Responsibility to Protect (R2P). It states that sovereignty is a responsibility, not a right, and if any nation violates their precepts of governance, the international community has the moral obligation to revoke the nation’s sovereignty and assume control over that nation. Violations include mass atrocities, war crimes, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing, and so on.
George W. Bush was accused of war crimes and would have been tried by their International Court. Barack H. Obama has been accused of same by some. Our military could conceivably be put on trial.
Under R2P, we would cede constitutional authority to the UN, a UN that has no interest in controlling mass atrocities and is comprised of many members who commit them on a regular basis.
R2P sees every nation as a member of an international community to be governed by that community if they don’t fit into their norms. If a nation wants to go to war, they can only do so with the permission of the UN Security Council whose members include Cuba, Syria, Iran…well, you get the idea.
Under R2P, an idea formulated by the UN in 2005, every government entity has a role in the collective but it is the UN that will reign supreme.
The Global Organization for the Responsibility to Protect is backed by the Soros Open Society.
Libya was the test case for the doctrine.
Ban Ki Moon said fears about turning over a nation’s sovereignty for this type of protection are unwarranted. Moon said the UN would only intervene when the state is either allowing mass atrocities to occur, or is committing them, in which case the State is no longer upholding its responsibilities as a sovereign nation. If you trust Moon’s word, good for you, but I don’t see much action by the UN now.
NATO said they are all for a strike on Syria but won’t take part in one. Hello?
Samantha Power believes in “global rebalancing” and an “international redistribution” of power.
Susan Rice, famed liar of Benghazi, said Monday that we must go into Syria because we have confirmed that chemical weapons were deployed in Syria. What? Huh? That is supposed to convince us? We know they were used. Who used them? Why is that the sole determinant when no one else wants to stand up against Assad?
The Obama administration is made up of serious globalists. They see us all as one spoke in the world wheel. They like that role for America and they are working on making it happen within the next few years. America’s greatness to them is in her being insignificant.
America? Are you awake yet?
