This has to be the craziest thing I have ever herd–new U.N. big shot Ban Ki-moon has figured out the real cause of the horrible campaign of rape and slaughter being perpetuated by Islamic fascists in Darfur. His reason may surprise you, because it has nothing to do with the roving death squads or Sudan President for Life and probable bed-wetter Omar al-Beshir. Nope this nut-case running the UN Says its all the fault of global warming. That is so crazy I think even Al Gore would get a chuckle out of it. Either this man is Mad or Alan Funt has risen from the dead and its Candid Camera time.
“The Darfur conflict began as an ecological crisis, arising at least in part from climate change,” Ban said in a Washington Post opinion column.
As WND reported in 2004, the U.S. declared the rape, pillaging and slaughter of blacks in western Sudan by the Islamist Khartoum regime and its Arab militia allies genocide. The U.N. has described it as the world’s worst current humanitarian crisis, with estimates of over 200,000 dead and more than 2.1 million displaced in four years.
In his column, Ban said U.N. statistics showed rainfall declined some 40 percent over the past two decades, as a rise in Indian Ocean temperatures disrupted monsoons.
“This suggests that the drying of sub-Saharan Africa derives, to some degree, from man-made global warming,” the South Korean diplomat wrote.
“It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought,” Ban wrote.
Ban explained that when Darfur’s land was rich, black farmers welcomed Arab herders and shared their water. With the drought, however, farmers fenced in their land to prevent overgrazing.
“For the first time in memory, there was no longer enough food and water for all,” he wrote. “Fighting broke out.”
A U.N. peacekeeping force could stop the fighting, “but what to do about the essential dilemma: the fact that there’s no longer enough good land to go around?”
“Any real solution to Darfur’s troubles involves sustained economic development,” he said.
He suggested using new technologies, genetically modified grains or irrigation, while bettering health, education and sanitation.
Last week, the U.S. announced it will work with its allies to draft a new U.N. Security Council resolution to impose new sanctions on Sudan, expand an arms embargo and prohibit the government from conducting offensive military flights over Darfur.
Some analysts believed the Darfur slaughter essentially is part of the Khartoum regime’s effort to Arabize and Islamicize the entire country.
Khartoum fought a 21-year war against the mostly Christian and animist south that ended in 2004, resulting in an estimated 2 million deaths and accusations of genocide.
In Darfur, the African tribes involved are Muslims, but they are not Arab Muslims, and they reject the government’s imposition of its brand of radical Islam.
Coincidently, I just got this in an email from my friend Happy Harry and it fits so perfectly to this story:
Death of a Good Friend
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, as his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
Knowing when to come in out of the rain. Why the early bird gets the worm. Life isn’t always fair. And maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies. Don’t spend more than you can earn. Adults, not children, are in charge. His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.
Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate.
Teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch. And a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student. These only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband. Churches became businesses. And criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglary your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death:
By his parents, Truth and Trust;
His wife, Discretion;
His daughter, Responsibility;
And his son, Reason.
His 3 stepbrothers survive him;
I Know My Rights,
Someone Else is To Blame,
And I’m A Victim.
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
