When a small band of Deep State criminals and hooligans can manage to literally hijack the most powerful country on earth, the United States of America, a land of 300 million plus people, replete with more than 30-50,000 nuclear weapons, the most powerful military on earth, and with a GDP of 25% of the entire world’s nations combined, and when this band of Deep State criminals literally control 99% of that nation’s wealth to literally force its hand to do whatever they want, all across the globe, even in the face of direct resistance and protests of 99.9% of that nation’s governed people, it is time for someone or some entity to curb that international criminal behavior and conduct.
Right now, the United States three branches of government – the executive, legislative, and judiciary, have been completely co-opted and corrupted by the very few members of the money powered oligarch/plutocrat elite, to the point were day to day life for the governed U.S. masses is laughable, and the rest of the world’s population is downright deadly and dangerous.
Even the current President of the United States, Donald Trump, who was elected and came to office riding the wave of populist American sentiment and revolt against this existential nightmare facing the American People, eventually found it useful and more expedient to completely abandon and ignore his 300 million plus American citizenry, and instead opt to lob $100 million worth of Tomahawk missiles into a sovereign nation, Syria, based wholly on incomplete and un-investigated allegations from the same band of Deep State warmonger liars who embroiled the U.S. and its allies into the 2003 Iraq war, based solely on falsified and politicized intelligence, bribery, lobbying, and Mainstream Media lockstep owned by the same Deep State Oligarchs/Plutocrats, resulting in tens of millions of people in Iraq and throughout the Middle East dead, displaced, with lives ruined for eternity.
It has now been firmly established with hard evidence that ISIS was formed, funded and created by Western Intelligence (U.S. CIA and British M-I6), plus other Gulf nations such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, as well as Israel and Turkey to literally disrupt, disorient, destabilize, and destroy the secular governments throughout the Middle East so that they could install their own crony leadership to rule that area with the same corrupted, disturbing, and sick methodology as they rule their imprisoned people back in their home nations.
The United Nations has been in existence since 1948, and was founded upon the basic charter to protect human rights and inalienable civil liberties and the sovereign territorial integrity of all of those 193 member nations, but to date has done absolutely nothing to either prevent or punish those international global war criminals and mafia chieftains who openly thumb their nose and flout not only the U.N., but also the remaining 99% of the global population and their host nations/countries/leaders.
Article 1 of the UN Charter, entitled “Purposes of the United Nations,” states that the adopted purposes of the United Nations is to essentially prohibit war (except in self-defense) by stating:
“All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered. All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.”
The right to self-defense is reaffirmed in Article 51, which states that:
“Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations.”
When international criminal conduct occurs, by extremely wealthy and powerful individuals, NGOs, and criminal oligarch/plutocratic entities, all throughout the world, affecting the territorial integrity or sovereign immunity of the world’s people, the U.N. is presently and currently absolutely unwilling, or unable, to do a goddamned thing about it.
The U.N. apparently has no law enforcement or police power, and this could be the ultimate problem because even if they wanted to punish a nation or individual who directly flouts international law, they can and will not do anything to enforce their hollow words and “security resolutions.”
The only portion of the U.N. Charter that remotely even touches on this issue pertains to Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter that sets out the U.N. Security Council’s powers to maintain peace.
It allows the Council to “determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression,” and to take military and non-military action to “restore international peace and security.”
Chapter VII also gives the Military Staff Committee responsibility for strategic coordination of forces placed at the disposal of the U.N. Security Council.
It is made up of the chiefs of staff of the five permanent members of the Council.
The U.N. Charter’s prohibition of member states of the U.N. attacking other U.N. member states is central to the purpose for which the U.N. was founded in the wake of the destruction of World War II – to prevent war.
This overriding concern is also reflected in the Nuremberg Trials’ concept of a crime against peace, which is “starting or waging a war against the territorial integrity, political independence or sovereignty of a state, or in violation of international treaties or agreements” (crime against peace), which was held to be the crime that makes all war crimes possible.
Article 42 states that:
“Should the Security Council consider that measures provided for in Article 41 would be inadequate or have proved to be inadequate, it may take such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security. Such action may include demonstrations, blockade, and other operations by air, sea, or land forces of Members of the United Nations.”
Article 51 provides for the right of countries to engage in self-defense, including collective self-defense, against an armed attack (including cyber attacks):
“Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self-defense shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.”
Finally Chapter XIV of the United Nations Charter deals with the International Court of Justice.
Most provisions related to the World Court are contained in the Statute of the International Court of Justice, which is annexed to the Charter.
Article 93 states that all U.N. members are members of the World Court.
Article 94 requires all members to abide by World Court decisions in any cases to which they are a party, and gives the U.N. Security Council power to enforce such decisions.
The World Court is also authorized to issue advisory opinions upon request.
Article 1, entitled “The Purposes of the United Nations,” are:
“To maintain international peace and security, to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;
“To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;
“To achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; and
“To be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.”
Article 2 states:
“The Organization and its Members, in pursuit of the Purposes stated in Article 1, shall act in accordance with the following Principles:
“The Organization is based on the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members.
“All Members, in order to ensure to all of them the rights and benefits resulting from membership, shall fulfill in good faith the obligations assumed by them in accordance with the present Charter.
“All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.
“All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.
“All Members shall give the United Nations every assistance in any action it takes in accordance with the present Charter, and shall refrain from giving assistance to any state against which the United Nations is taking preventive or enforcement action.
“The Organization shall ensure that states which are not Members of the United Nations act in accordance with these Principles so far as may be necessary for the maintenance of international peace and security.
“Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter; but this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter.”
The United Nations in their almost daily “get-togethers,” sitting around a table and voting on things, need to now use their 193 strong nation membership, and take one final but essential vote – to give themselves the power and authority to investigate, arrest, detain, and incarcerate those international war criminals who directly flout their resolutions and rules, and who bully other nations into submission by murdering, bombing, invading, disrupting, disorienting, raping, pillaging, terrorizing, and destroying other nations and their people, simply because they have the money, power, and connections to do so.
This is the only way that global (and sovereign nation) peace can occur, when the U.N. finally “grows a pair,” steps up to the plate, and asserts itself as the final and ultimate arbiter of international justice and punishment of global criminal activity, emanating from only one or two hijacked rogue nation states in their repertoire and arsenal of member nations.
