Past Legacy Prevails

The performance consistent pattern of the subjugating concept of
"The International Community", by the Security Council's five member
states - is by no means, an outcome of recent unilateral resolutions,
by the five member states. It, as a matter of fact, owes its 'ugly'
roots to the legacy of World War I (WWI, 1914 – 1918).
WWI, was fought
unilaterally, by the U.K. and its allies (by and large, the same junta
of the Security
Council, nowadays). Since there was no United Nations,
then, the U.K. and its allies went alone into a horrible war (to say
the least), riding the same wave, more or less, they ride these days,
i.e. "The International Community."
sometimes, repeats itself. Although time has moved on, the objective has
remained, almost entirely, the same.
The names of "The
International Community's" "asinine generals," as described by Dr. Dan Todman
(2009). Generals in Afghanistan and Iraq, are different from the
"asinine" generals' names, then, during WWI. But, the same military
rank and mindset still prevail, after 95 years on.*
Todman (2009), "'Everybody knows' what World War One was like
and what it meant. Modern Britons think of the war as a muddy, bloody mess,
a futile massacre in which a generation of young men were slaughtered at
the behest of asinine generals" *
"The International Community" of the old \ new colonial
powers, by the same token, launched WWII (1938 -1945) unilaterally. In
both wars, more than a hundred million people were killed.
Many more were injured and maimed. Those who survived, according to
Todman, either ended in
psychiatry clinics, committed suicide, or
spent what was left of their life, writing poetry.
Thus, the victorious emerging states, in 1945, determined the fate of
the World. For instance, under
the umbrella of "The International
Community" i.e., which is still an exclusive community,
gave (literally gave) Palestine to the Zionists.
which led the jungle's orchestra, was present in Palestine as an
occupying force. Therefore, it
was not that hard to hand Palestine to the
Zionists, based on Balfour's all but disgraceful promise to the Jews.
Even at the time of writing, "The International Community" of
the five permanent member states in the Security Council, pressurize
Palestinians to resume 'peace' negotiations with Israel "with or
without" freezing Illegal Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands, albeit, President Obama has made
"freezing settlements" his main foreign policy in the Middle East since
he took office a year ago.
Nevertheless, since "The
International community" is absolutely, undemocratic, completely,
intergovernmental, a total abuse of power, and a blatant naked rip off,
the World is expected to see more surprises.
