UN this week reeks of Sulfur.
« on: September 25, 2009, 09:36:30 PM »
The list of Holocaust deniers, Anti-Semites, Authoritarian thugs from communists  to religious fanatics speaking at the UN should have reminded  Hugo Chavez of the sulfur odor  he said he smelled when Bush spoke there a year or so ago? Of course, as we used  to say as kids about 'gas' release, he who smelt it dealt it, so Chavez and the rest of the clan may be numb by now? I will say this about the UN, you can see why our world is so screwed up and  the speech by Bibi Netenyahu of Israel pointing out the shame of the UN applauding the leader  of Iran is priceless.

If folks decide to close or move the UN, I would not cry.
But as the saying goes, I would much prefer that folks blabber than shoot.


There are lots of big and small tests for the international community.

I found this earlier interview was interesting.

This is the biggest test in my opinion. But the failing grade is unimaginable. Our French ally seems to be getting fed up.

I hope many in China were able to find a way to catch the discussion.
One question that likely will be edited out by the authorities mentioned their Firewall.
Obama in a few responses noted the value of technology, innovation, and the importance of freedom on the internet.

Always great to encourage more people to people exchanges.

And, in pointed remarks, Mr. Obama repeatedly stressed certain sensitive themes, saying the United States would push for freedom of expression, political participation, respect for ethnic minorities - a particularly touchy topic now in China - and empowering women in society.

Not sure of the significance, but the news that Google would take this seriously is encouraging.
