UNITED NATIONS DOES NOT CARE ABOUT AFRICAN LIVES

UNITED NATIONS DOES NOT CARE ABOUT AFRICAN LIVES

By Okonkwo Isaac Somto

For Family Writers

According to the creed UN stands for, it’s says they stand for "peace and prosperity" right? Peace and prosperity for all citizens of the world first and foremost. UN claims they don't want armed conflict and issues Security Council mandates only as a last resort in an emergency. In peacetime, the UN's many organisations send all kinds of support to needy nations in order to help the world's poorest citizens (Yeah, right). The UN most definitely stands for the right values--the betterment of all humankind. But what's the point of peace keeping when they don't keep peace? From Rwanda to Bosnia, Haiti to Congo, Sudan to Biafra their failures continue to raise questions.

RWANDA, 1994: UN didn't just prove how biased they were, but also showed their true intentions. They don't care about black lives, all their major concern is keeping the white folks safe. All this noise of keeping world peace and prosperity is just mere slogan to deceive blacks folks that their lives really matters when it doesn't. In the Rwanda civil war, Hundreds of desperate Tutsis sought refuge on the first day of the genocide at a school where 90 UN troops were under the command of Captain Luc Lemaire. Here, they were surely safe from the Hutus and their machetes. But Within days, the UN command decided there was more important work for Lemaire and his men than protecting Tutsis. The peacekeepers were ordered to abandon the school in order to escort foreigners to the airport and out of Rwanda. As the soldiers left, Tutsis begged to be shot rather than left to the militia’s machetes. Within hours, the 2,000 people at the school were murdered by gun, grenade and blade. Close to one million Rwandans were killed in the genocide, amounting to twenty percent of the population.

BIAFRA 1967: When the civil war started between Nigeria-Biafra, UN turned a deaf ear to the cry of Col. Odumegwu Ojukwu who pleaded that UN should intervene and stop the genocide been carried out by Nigeria leader Col. Yakubu Gowon on the Biafra people. Ojukwu kept sending letters and representatives to ask the UN for help on a peaceful seize fire but what was the response of the UN? Fend for yourselves. Over 3.5millions women and children died during that civil war. The genocide of over 3.5million Biafrans would have been averted if but only the UN got involved. I personally don't see the need of setting up an organisation like UN because UN peacekeeping is costing as many lives as it is protecting by offering an illusion of security. United Nations have spent billions of dollars to keep thousands of blue helmet soldiers and policemen across the globe in their bid for peace keeping but when the time comes for UN to put their words of promises into action they reverse to been biased and choosing which live to safe, and which to discard.


SUDAN 2003: The unstable nation of Sudan erupted in conflict, as various militia groups criticized and attacked the government for oppressing non-Arabs. Early in the war, rebel forces defeated the Sudanese military in more than thirty battles. By 2005, the Janjaweed were carrying out attacks on populated villages using artillery and helicopters, prompting condemnation by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. Despite this condemnation, the UN did not enter Sudan, instead urging members of the African Union to intervene. As the African Union attempted an intervention, it became apparent that the Sudanese military was destroying civilian populations. Reports emerged revealing that Sudanese military planes were painted white, to resemble UN humanitarian aircraft, only to drop bombs on villages. It was not until 2006 that 200 UN soldiers were dispatched to the area. Despite their limited presence, fighting continued until 2010. In seven years, more than 300,000 Sudanese civilians were killed.

Look at what they did in Angola, Bosnia, DRC, Haiti, etc. This is more evidence that UN is just a "Political show business" and nothing more. UN is a political organisation not a keeper of peace. UN is a democratic organization, and it represents the interests of particular countries and colours.
