UN Does Double-Clutch Shuffle on World Development

At the same time that the exit of Paul Wolfowitz is being masterminded by the arch-scammer behind the billion-dollar Oil-for-Food crime spree, Kofi Annan assistant Mark Malloch Brown, another obscenely wrongheaded move is taking place at the Lunatic Asylum on Turtle Bay.

In its rapid lurches toward a state of complete entropy, the United Nations has voted
Zimbabwe as head a key U.N. body charged with promoting economic progress and environmental protection. That's right, a country
that has been criticized by the West and domestic opponents for repression, corruption, acute food shortages and gross economic mismanagement that has driven inflation above 2,000 percent -- the highest in the world,

has been put in charge of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development.

Let's see, a UN Oil-for-Food billion-dollar UberGrifter named Malloch Brown opposes Wolfowitz --- unpopular at the World Bank mainly because of his anti-corruption crusade. And Zimbabwe, with a 2000% inflation rate, is put in charge of sustainable development.

No funhouse mirror on the planet can distort as much as the United Nations, not only a laughingstock, but a posterboy for how the Utopian Vision of a World Government has gone oh so terribly wrong.

Adlai Stevenson must be rotating in his tomb.

The Commission on Sustainable Development rotates by continent, with member countries from the continent next in line choosing who will fill the spot. African nations overwhelmingly support Zimbabwe's bid. In South Africa, Mbeki wants to emulate Mugabe's land redistribution. With rampant malnutrition, exploding populations, and widespread AIDS' rates, Africa is in free-fall.

Africa is in free-fall and the UN is looking all over for culprits. The UN is an institution that is ethics-hobbled and operating from a paradigm that basket-case nations are that way because of colonial sins a century old.

Mark Malloch Brown enabled the UN crime spree on Oil-for-Food to continue aided by Jacques Chiraq. He wants Wolfie's job and will spread corruption worldwide if he gets it.
