The UN: Using women and children as shields

Michelle Malkin has a well done report of the UN sex scandal. What's emerged of late is a veiled attempt at silencing the US.

According to the Associated Press, the report by Jordan's U.N. Ambassador Prince Zeid al Hussein will propose that "foreign soldiers accused of wrongdoing be court-martialed inside the country where the claims were made," according to a U.N. official who spoke anonymously.

While we want the criminals to pay, Americans do not like the idea of our own people being charged, tried and condemned in foreign courts while they are serving in our military. Such a proposal by the UN, ostensibly to corral their own misbehaving staffers and employees, would be used to make scapegoats of US military personnel.

Meanwhile more and more reports of UN abuses surface:

A French U.N. logistics expert in the Congo shot pornographic videos in his home, in which he had converted his bedroom into a photo studio for videotaping his sexual abuse of young girls. When police raided his home, the man was allegedly about to rape a 12-year-old girl sent to him in a law enforcement sting operation.

U.N. officials are worried that the scandal, which already has netted 150 allegations of sex crimes by U.N. staffers, will explode if the pornographic videos and photos, now on sale in Congo, becoming public

Two Russian pilots paid young girls with jars of mayonnaise and jam to have sex with them, the report adds.

U.N. "peacekeepers" from Morocco based in Kisangani – a secluded town on the Congo River – are notorious for impregnating local women and girls. In March, an international group probing the scandal found 82 women and girls had been made pregnant by Moroccan U.N. staffers and 59 others by Uruguayan staffers. One U.N. soldier accused of rape was apparently hidden in the barracks for a year.

And at least two U.N. officials – a Ukrainian and a Canadian – have been forced to leave the African nation after getting local women pregnant.

Using the safety of US troop as a shield to continue to molest innocent women and children is outrageous. This is yet another reason for the US to get out of the UN.
