Report: United Nations No Longer Upholds Charter (R.18+)

By Alistair Reign. January 18, 2016 (updated January 19th at 2:30 pm pst).

The UN Charter, in its Preamble spoken by Sir Lawrence Olivier in 1945 set an objective:to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained“.

United Nations Charter: “Ever since, the development of, and respect for international law has been a key part of the work of the Organization.  This work is carried out in many ways – by courts, tribunals, multilateral treaties – and by the Security Council, which can approve peacekeeping missions, impose sanctions, or authorize the use of force when there is a threat to international peace and security, if it deems this necessary. These powers are given to it by the UN Charter, which is considered an international treaty.  As such, it is an instrument of international law, and UN Member States are bound by it.  The UN Charter codifies the major principles of international relations, from sovereign equality of States to the prohibition of the use of force in international relations.”

Well spoken Sir Olivier, words which once held potent meaning, and the belief that nation leaders would now stand united against the evil of persecution and genocide the world had witnessed in WWII.

Except, the Charter has failed. The United Nations has failed, and world leaders are proven impotent against tyranny. 

I sat down this morning and read through the UN Charter of Rights. The result of my research produced the following article, which includes quotes from the United Nations’ website press statements; accompanied by Twitter posts from reliable media outlets and journalists reporting from inside both Yemen and Syria;

where millions of innocent people are being slaughtered under the banner of religion; children are starved; civilians permanently disfigured; and families are forced to flee their homes for fear of being killed – while the members of the UN literally and physically bow to the regimes’ blatantly breaking almost every rule of war outlined in the Geneva Convention of 1945.

The United Nations is founded.

In 1945, on October 24th representatives of 50 countries met in San Francisco at the United Nations Conference on International Organization to draw up the United Nations Charter.

The original signatories and subsequent adherents to the Declaration:  the United States of America, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, China, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Czechoslovakiam, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Poland, Union of South Africa, Yugoslavia (subsequent) Mexico, Philippines, Ethiopia, Iraq, Brazil, Bolivia, Iran, Colombia, Liberia, France, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Venezuela, Uruguay, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon.

What Is The Charter Of United Nations?

Article 1.1 defines the principles of the UN Charter: “To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;”

Article 2.2 and 2.4 state that all members agree to act in accordance with the following purposes:

All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.

What Is International Law?

UN Charter: “International law defines the legal responsibilities of States in their conduct with each other, and their treatment of individuals within State boundaries. Its domain encompasses a wide range of issues of international concern, such as human rights, disarmament, international crime, refugees, migration, problems of nationality, the treatment of prisoners, the use of force, and the conduct of war, among others.”

On December 22, 2015 the UN Security Commission, cloaked with their charters, declarations and treaty agreements held a Council Meeting in regards to safe passage of humanitarian assistance throughout Syria.

The Security Council meeting resolution’s were penned with plenty of strongly felt emotions and supplications;

yet failed to pen a single consequence for Assad’s repeated crimes against humanity, which includes millions of children;

nor did it follow-up on the continuing use of chemical weapons on civilians, which include women, children and babies numbered in the tens-of-thousands;

nor did it outline any physical action being taken to protect Doctors Without Borders’ hospitals, or medical clinics and staff treating civilians and children;

nor was an order given for an independent investigate into the 100 some deadly medical facility bombings in Syria, several of which were allegedly NATO-led airstrikes.

United Nations provided nothing but empty words, with no guaranteed of protection for innocent civilians, or promise to uphold and enforce the rules of war it was entrusted to defend by the people of the world:

Expressing outrage at the unacceptable and escalating level of violence and the killing of over a quarter of a million people, including tens of thousands of child casualties, as a result of the Syrian conflict,

Gravely distressed by the continued deterioration of the devastating humanitarian situation in Syria and by the fact that urgent humanitarian assistance, including medical assistance, is now required by more than 13.5 million people in Syria — of whom 6.5 million are internally displaced, 4.5 million are living in hard-to-reach areas, including Palestinian refugees, and 393,700 civilians are trapped in besieged areas,”. [01]

The Security Council and International Law.

UN Charter: “Some of the action of the Security Council have international law implications, such as those related to peacekeeping missions, ad hoc tribunals, sanctions, and resolutions adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter. In accordance with Article 13(b) of the Rome Statute, the Security Council can refer certain situations to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), if it appears international crimes (such as genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, the crime of aggression) have been committed.”

UN Security Council President, Samantha Power released a press statement in December 2015 that said: “The members of the Security Council expressed deep concern about the dire humanitarian situation in Yemen, which continues to worsen.  The members of the Security Council recognized that over 80 per cent of the population21 million peoplerequire some form of humanitarian assistance and emphasized that the civilian impact of the conflict has been devastating, particularly for children and the 2.5 million internally displaced persons.”

“The members of the Security Council expressed particular concern at the food security situation, with over 7 million people suffering severe food insecurity and a doubling in the number of children under five who are acutely malnourished.  They recognized that functioning markets inside Yemen are essential to address the situation, as humanitarian assistance alone cannot overcome a humanitarian crisis of this scale.” [02]
