WSJ Says Kick Burma Out Of The U.N.

Granted, I do not read the Wall Street Journal a ton. Just too many news sources out there. But, I cannot remember the WSJ, or any other news source, calling for the United Nations to kick out member states like Cuba, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and other massive human rights violaters. But, Burma? Theys gots ta go!

The United Nations this week said the refusal of Burma’s government to allow workers into the country’s devastated agricultural region was unprecedented in the history of humanitarian relief. The human catastrophe produced by Burma’s refusal to permit aid in the wake of Cyclone Nargis has stunned the senses of a world that has watched this spectacle for a week.

There are uncounted numbers of persons dead, homeless and orphaned. Bodies still float in water. The World Health Organization has warned there could be outbreaks of cholera and especially malaria. U.N. member-state India warned the junta the deadly cyclone was headed toward Burma on May 1, two days before it hit. Yesterday, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said food relief hasn’t yet reached the region because “regrettably” the junta won’t talk to him.

It’s time to kick Burma out of the United Nations. If the U.N. does not put in motion a process to suspend Burma from its U.N. membership, then, clearly, nothing is forbidden.

This is an organization which, while it has done some good now and then, it has been implicated in the Oil for Food scandal, for drugs and sex parties in 3rd world countries by its workers, for pedophilia, for sexual harrasment at its NY office, for theft in host countries, and many other terrible things. What does the WSJ have to say about that, much less the huge human rights abuses by nations, many of whom sit on the Human Rights Council.

As despicable the actions of the Burmese government, they are a sovereign country. If they want to be despicable, they can be. Let the people take care of it.
