It appears increasingly likely that the Obama-Biden-Hillary
administration will also adopt a Bubba-Gore-Hillary article
of faith, namely that the 21st Century would see the end of the
Acting on that belief, Bubba-Gore attempted to hand over to the United Nations,
the presumptive world government, every semi-international problem, including
women’s reproductive rights,
For example, in 1995, as an official member of our delegation to the
World Conference on Women being held in Beijing, Hillary Clinton blasted
both China (for promoting sterilization, abortion and female infanticide by
its one child limit per family) and India (for permitting the burning of brides
because their dowries were too small).
Then, in 2000, at a weeklong special
session of the UN General Assembly, Hillary "laid out" – according
to our UN Ambassador Richard Holbrooke – the official Clinton-Gore policy,
which was to resist the efforts of (a) the Vatican, (b) some "Catholic"
countries and (c) some "Islamic" countries to reverse the "gains"
achieved by women at that 1995 Conference.
Now, President Clinton had hoped to make his principal legacy the elimination
of nuclear-weapons altogether, getting every nation-state – including India,
Pakistan and Israel – to become a signatory to (a) the Treaty
on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and (b) the Comprehensive
Test Ban Treaty.
The NPT was viewed by almost every signatory as having three "pillars":
- an affirmation of the inalienable right of all signatories to the peaceful
uses of nuclear energy "without discrimination"
- a mechanism for verifying to other signatories that nuclear energy was not
being diverted from peaceful to military purposes
- a promise by the weapons-states to eventually dispose of their nukes
The NPT required those signatories not yet having nukes to negotiate a Safeguards
Agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency – an existing United Nations
agency already charged with facilitating the widest possible international transfer
of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes – for the "exclusive purpose"
of "verifying" that certain proscribed materials were not "diverted" to a military
But what about this promise we made to eventually dispose of our nukes?
In September 1993, President Clinton called for a multilateral convention banning
the production of fissile materials for use in nuclear weapons, and in March
1995 the Conference on Disarmament established a committee to begin drafting
such a treaty.
Next, at the 1995
NPT Review Conference, Bubba got all signatories to agree to its indefinite
Then, in 1997, at the 40th General Conference of the IAEA, Director-General
Hans Blix announced the Trilateral
Agreement, hyped as an important step towards the U.S. and Russia meeting
NPT nuke "disarmament obligations." Each side would – under the watchful eyes
of IAEA inspectors – dispose of 34 tons of weapons-grade plutonium, recovered
from thousands of dismantled U.S. and Soviet nukes.
Finally, Bubba approved the "action agenda" of the 2000
NPT Review Conference, calling for "systematic and progressive efforts"
to implement the NPT nuke disarmament requirement.
Of course, Bill Clinton did not shrink from killing thousands of women and
children, in the Middle East and in the Balkans, from 20,000 feet, in accordance
with the fervently expressed desires of various groups of his supporters, which
included women’s rights activists, to effect "regime change."
But then Bush-Cheney came to power, repudiating the Clinton-Gore "globalist"
philosophy, vowing, instead, to establish an American
Hence, Bush-Cheney deemed it necessary to destroy the IAEA-NPT nuclear-weapon
proliferation-prevention regime – since it was in their way – corrupting the
UN Security Council in the process.
Recall that in his first State
of the Union Address, Bush essentially accused North Korea, Iran and Iraq
of having clandestine nuclear weapons programs.
"States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil,
arming to threaten the peace of the world.
"I will not wait on events, while dangers gather. I will not stand by, as
peril draws closer and closer. The United States of America will not permit
the world's most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world's most destructive
But – at that time – North Korea, Iran and Iraq were all NPT signatories, and
were certified by the IAEA to not have weapons-useable materials.
In particular, in 1998, the new IAEA Director-General, Mohamed ElBaradei, reported
to the UN Security Council that there were "no indications that there remains
in Iraq any physical capability for the production of amounts of weapons-usable
nuclear material of any practical significance."
So, upon receipt of that IAEA report – that Iraq no longer posed a "threat
to the peace in the region" – the Security Council should have
removed some or all of the sanctions previously imposed.
But, President Clinton declared he would never allow UN sanctions
to be lifted, despite the IAEA report that Iraq was in total
compliance with its Safeguards Agreement, so
long as Saddam Hussein was in power!
Whereupon Clinton launched Operation
Desert Fox, a thinly disguised attempt to effect regime in Iraq by assassinating
Clinton didn’t succeed, of course, so the enforcement of the Clinton-imposed
"no-fly zones" and of the UN sanctions on the civilian population
continued, as a result of which, UN Assistant Secretary-General Denis Holliday
that "child mortality for children under five years of age is from five
to six thousand per month."
In other words, by the time Bush-Cheney launched Operation Iraqi Freedom, Clinton-Gore
and their supporters had been at least indirectly responsible for the deaths
of at least 250,000 Iraqi children under the age of five. All because many Clinton-Gore
supporters – including women’s rights activists – didn’t think Saddam Hussein
was a very nice man.
Many of these same supporters also didn’t think Kim Il-Sung – the dictator
of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea – was a very nice man, either. Nor
were the Iranian Mullahs or the Afghan Taliban.
So, after invading Afghanistan and routing the Taliban, when President Bush
proceeded to designate Iran, Iraq and North Korea to lie on "an axis of
evil," he secured the support of most of those Clinton-Gore "globalist"
supporters, including women’s rights activists.
Now, as Obama-Biden-Hillary come to power, it will probably be impossible to
reconstitute the effectiveness of the IAEA-NPT nuke proliferation-prevention
regime, to undo the damage done to it by Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton in Iraq-Iran-India-Korea-Pakistan.
So, thanks to Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton, the chances of you and yours getting
nuked in jammies is greater than it has ever been.
But, hey, the Mullahs and Taliban are resurgent and defiant, and Obama-Biden-Hillary
will have all the support they need if they decide to stifle them, by force,
So, Happy New Year.
