The UN’s Sex Criminals

-By Warner Todd Huston

Why these stories of sex crimes perpetrated by UN officials never seem to get wider release and notice is amazing. The MSM are so vested in the idea that the United Nations is somehow the answer to the world’s troubles that abuses by members of the organization never see the kind of focus that Bush saying a bad word to Tony Blair got, for instance. Look how long it took people to get any news about the Oil for Food scandal … in fact even that story seems oddly hushed still.

The Australian newspaper recently had a short report of more UN sex abuse allegations. UN peacekeepers abandoned babies reveals how “UN peacekeepers have abandoned at least 20 babies fathered with poverty-stricken Timorese women, an investigation has shown.”

The report reports these newest UN “peacekeeper’s” sex crimes.

“The UN investigation has also uncovered a culture of cover-up, in which babies born to peacekeepers and sex crimes committed by its personnel over seven years have been kept secret because of a ‘fear of shame and embarrassment.’"

But this isn’t the only time this has occurred and is, therefore, not at all unusual, unfortunately.

Nearly everywhere the UN sets up shop prostitution, brothels, and forced sexual slavery springs up to “service” the UN peacekeepers and officials. These UN officials appear to use their positions with the UN as an excuse to indulge in illicit sex romps with as many underage women (and boys) as possible.

It has happened most recently in the Congo but has also happened in Kosovo, Thailand, South America and a host of other places about the globe. Crimes like this perpetrated by UN officials are not just isolated incidents and reveal a culture or depredations the world over.

Here are just a few examples:

U.N. Sex Crimes in the Congo

Widespread allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse of Congolese women, boys and girls have been made against U.N. personnel who were sent to help and protect them -- despite a so-called zero tolerance policy touted by the United Nations toward such behavior.

U.N. Official Gets Three Years in Sex Abuse Case

“A court in Kosovo, the Serbian province governed by the United Nations since 1999, sentenced an official of the organization to three years in prison after finding him guilty of sexual abuse of a minor, United Nations officials said Tuesday. Rashidoon Khan of Pakistan, an official of the United...”

Report Finds U.N. Isn't Moving to End Sex Abuse by Peacekeepers

“The United Nations has developed procedures to curb sexual abuse by peacekeepers, but the measures are not being put into force because of a deep-seated culture of tolerating sexual exploitation, an independent review reported Tuesday. ''A 'boys will be boys' attitude in peacekeeping missions breeds tolerance for exploiting and...”

As I said, these are just some of the latest stories. Such stories have been around for decades and decades. Everywhere the UN goes, sexual abuse follows.

This is just one more reason that the corruption and evil of the UN makes it an organization that has proven its ineffectiveness at best and the downright danger it poses to the world at worst.

The UN should be dismantled now, before more young girls end up having their lives ruined through sexual slavery and abuse by the same people that are ostensibly there to “help” them.
