The New American: “With its so-called “peacekeeping” military troops facing outrage worldwide for raping and exploiting children with impunity, the United Nations is launching a major push to expand and further empower its UN “police” force known as UNPOL.
At the same time, the controversial global organization is working to usurp more influence over national police forces, with the UN bringing together more than 100 national police chiefs this month at what is its first-ever UN “Chiefs of Police Summit” (UN COPS). The scheming comes less than two years after UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on local police forces in the United States to comply with what he cryptically referred to as “international standards.”
At the center of the UN’s efforts to empower its self-styled “Police” force is a new report commissioned by the UN that — surprise! — claims the UN Police need more money, power, and prestige.”
Opinion: Take a guess as to which western leader is all for the UN COPS?
If you guessed Barack Obama you would be correct: UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson called “UNCOPS a “tremendous opportunity”:
“UN Police are our police, serving ‘We the Peoples’ of the UN,” the deputy UN boss continued in his speech to UN COPS and national police chiefs from around the world. “We commend your commitment to work with the UN to advance peace and security as one international community and one global neighborhood.”
Keep in mind that Secretary General Ban Ki Moon’s term of office ends on January 31, 2016, and Barack Obama’s term ends on Jan 20, 2017. There has never been a UN President.
