After US Drone Strike On Soleimani UNSC Paralysis As UN Guterres Bans Press 551st Day

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

UN GATE, Jan 5 – On Iraq, yet another country in which the UN system of Antonio Guterres is corrupt (see below UNESCO exclusive from Inner City Press which Guterres bans from the UN now for the 551st day), Guterres on November 28 had a canned statement through equally corrupt Stephane Dujarric: "The Secretary-General urges all actors  to refrain from violence and to engage in peaceful and meaningful dialogue for the benefit of Iraq and the Iraqi people."

  Now on Jan 5, after protests and incursions at and inside the US Embassy in Baghdad and then drone strike(s), while the UN not only issued no read out of Guterres' call with US Mike Pompeo, but refused each and every one of Inner City Press' nine written questions, entirely corrupt, notice that the UN Security Council has added "other matters" to its closed door meeting on January 6.

  But be honest: nothing can come out of it, given the UNSC veto system, just as on China's abuses in Xinjiang, and France's support of murdering colonialism in Cameroon and beyond. The UN is corrupt, it is misreported by the bought-off media still allowed in by the censor Guterres. Worse, it is a named-checked cypher for those who pretend to care about multilateralism but have allowed it to turn into a sinkhole of Chinese bribes, while covering up rape of Africans and Haitians by peacekeepers while Guterres cackled and covers up. Inner City Press will have more on this.

Meanwhile, US Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) issued the following statement announcing the introduction of legislation to prohibit any funding for offensive military force in or against Iran without prior congressional authorization. The measure to restrict funds for such military activities passed by a bipartisan, 251-margin vote in the House of Representatives, but was later stripped from the National Defense Authorization Act adopted by Congress in December...

And from UN Guterres, who has been on a publicly funded junket for weeks, location undisclosed? Nothing. Totally corrupt.

Following the exclusive report by Inner City Press of May 26, the wind of panic in the Cabinet of Azoulay is blowing across UNESCO.  In February 2018, only few months after the election of the French Director General Audrey Azoulay, UNESCO launched the “Revive the Spirit of Mosul” initiative ostensibly to participate in the reconstruction of this city, after years of war and destruction.  This seemingly noble initiative was in fact a cover up operation of reinforcing French influence in Iraq in order to secure markets and work for French companies. Inner City Press, before being roughed up and banned by Antonio Guterres, can trace this all the way back to France's abstention for BNP Paribas on Iraq Oil for Food.

   The governing bodies of UNESCO must remember that it involves at present a number of different scandals with regard to Azoulay’s administration and a whole series of kickbacks and schemes that really make problems for the overall credibility of the organization. Still banned Inner City Press will have more on that.
