Since the moment the United States threatened with not giving more funds to the UN, Kofi Annan began to speak in favor of the reform. He already did it in 1997 and in 2002. Nowadays, Mr. Annan expresses his opinions in the media through articles written by his great team of public relations which is mainly paid by Americans contributors. Now, he says in the Washington Post he is responsible for the progress of the situation in Iraq after having said months ago that the war was “illegal” and he does no want to pay tribute to the Coalition forces.
But, let’s pretend this time Mr. Annan is serious about the reform. Have he learned the lesson of the “Oil for Food” scandal? Is he inspired, perhaps, by the work done by Newt Gingrich and George Mitchell team on the UN reform and by the UN Reform Act of Henry J. Hyde? The only important thing for this organization is money. It’s true. No matter how shocking it might be when we are dealing with an organization based on the Marxist principle of redistribution.
It does not matter if the UN wants to reform itself for it still wants more funds. Nowadays, it demands 0.7% of the GDP of the rich countries to be used in the assistance for development. This means the US will have to give 82 billions more to the UN that will use part of this money to lobby and pay for open forums. The Europeans know the US will have to pay more money than the others and consequently they support this plan. As was done in Boston in 1773, during the Boston Tea Party, the United States must throw Annan’s plan to the Sea.
