Entire Ukraine at Risk

April 17th, 2014 - 10:23 am

The real kicker to this VOA report comes at the end of the excerpt:

A senior U.N. human rights official warned Wednesday that if the situation in eastern Ukraine is not quickly addressed, it “risks seriously destabilizing” the entire country.

Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Šimonović told the U.N. Security Council that those with influence should immediately act to stop the violence.

“The arming of the protesters and their transformation into quasi-paramilitary forces must be stopped. Anyone inciting violence and providing arms to protesters can be held accountable for the resulting tragic consequences,” said Šimonović.

Anyone? What if those protestors are pro-Kyiv? Am I reading too much into what Šimonović has said, or is the UN Human Rights chief already engaging in a little Cold War-style moral equivalence between Moscow and the West?

Moral equivalence would be a welcome change from the anti-US UN.

Like I said before, The UN/Western powers in their infinite moral superiority, will pass resolutions against everyone. This will achieve nothing but ensuring that that the little guy gets his ass kicked.

And our betters will feel good about themselves.

Isn't that what the UN does?
