WHO and the Chinese
It's becoming more and more difficult to defend the WHO and now the UN. In other words, don't expect the UN to stand up to China anytime soon.
This is from FOX:
President Trump ignited a firestorm on Tuesday after announcing that the U.S. would temporarily cease funding the World Health Organization (WHO) after accusing the agency of dangerous "political correctness" in embracing China's cover-up, thus paving the way for the coronavirus pandemic.
But WHO is only one patch of an increasingly fragile fabric that is the United Nations.
"China is in a position to veto and stub out any effort by the U.S. to pass a resolution against it in the Security Council," Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, an Israel-based attorney who specializes in suing terrorist regimes and state sponsors who orchestrate human rights abuses on behalf of victims, told Fox News.
"As an economic powerhouse with the ability to punish smaller countries that rely on its trade and markets, most of the 190 countries that are part of the General Assembly would be loath to join in a U.S.-sponsored resolution that would condemn China for its role in the pandemic.
"Moreover, General Assembly resolutions, which might be embarrassing and humiliating to Beijing, are largely symbolic and do not have any actual bite and, as such, most of the world would be too fearful of Chinese retribution to join along in this gesture."
It's time to recognize that these international organizations are basically useless. I will give the founders the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure that they meant for the UN to keep the peace and for the WHO to focus on science.
Unfortunately, that's not what these organizations have turned into. They are anti-U.S. and use our money to do it.
It reminds me of a story of a young man in college who spent his dad's money and then told the whole world horrible things about him. One day I got mad at him and said: "If I was your dad I'd stop sending you money".
Maybe we should stop sending the UN money!
