UN Resolution in Lebanon
anti-war / imperialism |
Saturday August 12, 2006 03:07 by Mark - Jack White Late Nite Tv
And the chance to make a few Quid
Resolution 17001/2006 has been passed by the UN tonite,
Lebanese Anti Capitalism March
Resolution 17001/2006 has been passed by the UN tonite, calling for a full cessation of hostilities. UNIFIL is to be expanded to 15000 with the lebanese government sending troops to the south of the country. Effective and immediate control of the lebanese government within it own territory and calls for the immediate withdrawl of Israeli forces. Much was spoken about creating stability across the region. The lebanese government will meet tomorrow to discuss the resolution, with the israeli's meeting in sunday. tonite as the resolution was passed the israeli troops are pushing further into lebanon
Amidst all the speeches, talking about creating peace, about helping the lebanese population one thing has stuck out more than anything else. Almost 1 million people have been displaced within Lebanon and over 1000 killed. Its really difficult not to be cynical particularly when we think of the reality of what a ceasefire will mean for the population of Lebanon, but even i was shocked to here within all the politico speak that the US and the UK where the only speakers to start putting figures on this.
Where every speaker on the council spoke with their obvious perspective and bias it was hard not too notice that the only representatives to mention money was the US and UK speakers. The US is to up its assistance to $50M, which by my reckoning is about the cost of less than 6 airplanes that Israel’s purchased from the US. The UK is to give £6.2M, through the Red Cross, so one wonders how much off this money has been allocated previously
Condoleeza Rice, whilst speaking about the grief her country felt about the devastation and death visited upon by Israel’s military might spoke of “creating opportunity out of tradgedy”. Her next few shocked even me as I’d thought id heard it all. But said it she did. Even within the arena of ceremony and pomp, it took all of 2 and a half minutes too find out where the US government felt the ‘oppurtunity’ lay. The US government is to “push for the involvement of the private sector in the reconstruction of Lebanon”. Not content, it seems with selling the bombs and military hard and soft ware that killed and injured so many Lebanese and reduced the countries infrastructure to rubble, they now want to get quids in by rebuilding it…..and why the any right minded person think that we shouldn’t just start pulling these companies apart.
Unfortunately Sky went to break as the Lebanese Representative spoke.....hope to add more soon
As if this wasn’t enough to absorb in one evening, I was really sickened to hear the UK speaker at the UK Margaret Beckett, who with no hint of sarcasm or irony, said that the UK government will immediately “address the humanitarian crisis” by deploying a “British team experience in post conflict reconstruction” Bet they will be wanting paid well too.
Everyones a winner if your involved in the (Post)War industry eh?
