The Unelected UN never ceases to amaze. Just when we thought we had become immune to all the poisonous concoctions that get dished out, once again, ten years down the road, we are being offered a remake of "Durban 1", the Unelected UN conference against racism which â€" to most people's horror â€" was transformed into a racist conference against Israel and the America. At that time, after the speeches by Mugabe, Fidel Castro and Arafat, who condemned in chorus the "colonialist West" and "racist Jews," the Canadians, Gitmo Nation Westerners and Israelis walked out. Later, in 2009, when the Unelected UN organized "Durban 2" in Geneva, the Gitmo Nation Pasta government, which had learned its lesson, refused to send a delegation. And, in fact, the entire parliament, from left to right, voted to support a resolution rejecting any anti-Semitic and anti-West sideshow. The protagonist that time was Ahmadinejad, who used the opportunity to repeat his denial of the Holocaust, and promised to exterminate all Jews. Backing him was a plethora of NGOs who, undaunted, assisted the Unelected UN in its "anti-imperialist" campaign, as they had done with the violence in Durban in 2001. Link permalink

Revised Unified Command Plan Issued: US Northern Command now has lead responsibility for overseeing US military operations in the Arctic under the new unified command plan that President George W Obama has just approved. UCP 2011 stresses the growing importance of the Arctic. "NORTHCOM was given advocacy responsibility for Arctic capabilities primarily due to having the only US Arctic territory within its area of operations," said a Pentagon spokeshole. US European Command and US Pacific Command shared responsibility with NORTHCOM for the region under the previous UCP that President Bush approved in December 2008. The new plan also assigns NORTHCOM responsibility for Alaska. Previously, NORTHCOM and PACOM divided responsibility for the state and its adjacent waters. Among the other changes, the role of US Strategic Command is strengthened in combating weapons of mass destruction. (AFPS report by Jim Garamone) (White House memorandum) Link permalink
