FORSETH -- Please tell me Justin, what shared values do we have with the multiple dictatorships you have courted -- to win a vote -- in the quest to stoke your ego?
And before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, he had racked up tens of thousands of air miles to grovel, in person, in the hopes of getting the support of UN members.
How many billion$ have been wasted on this quest, by our self-indulgent leader, for this temporary two-year place at the table?
To be certain, we’ll never know, because much of those costs will be buried as part of on-going and regular interactions with these countries.
Lebanon ... the Permanent Representatives of the United Nations’ Latin American and Caribbean Group ... Liberia ... the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific States ... North Macedonia ... the Permanent Representatives of the United Nations’ African Group ... Jamaica ... the Permanent Representatives of the Arab League countries ... France ... the Asia Group ... Saudi Arabia ... the Eastern European Group ... along with a long list of tinpot dictatorships.
Even the Prime Minister of a place called Tuvalu! Where in the dickens is that you ask? Well, it’s in the South Pacific – an independent island nation in the British Commonwealth.
Over the past several months I have read media release after media release, from the Prime Ministers Office. Each of them a glowing report of our long-standing relationship with these countries and organizations ... and how we have a desire to increase the apparent strong bonds we have with each of them ... along with glowing words around our shared values, bilateral friendships, and common membership in a multitude of different organizations.
Please tell me, Justin, what shared values we have with the numerous dictatorships you have courted, to win their votes, in this quest to stoke your ego?
Tomorrow, we’ll find out if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s pursuit, for this temporary seat on the UN Security Council, paid off.
One thing is for certain, whether we are at the table or not, it won’t make any difference in how the Council operates.
It’s been basically toothless -- and useless -- for far too many years ... and that’s a shame for the ten’s of thousands of men, women, and children that are murdered and killed each and every year by their own governments ... and by marauding countries sticking their noses, and armed forces, into the affairs of other countries.
I just don’t get it – do you? Please let me know what you think.
