An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
The Institute on Religion and Democracy is blasting the United Nations after auditors find the agency squandered millions of dollars in war-torn Sudan.
Is anyone ever surprised that the Useless Numnuts are wasting millions? What does surprise me is that the U.S. and other reasonably civilized countries continue to feed that particular beast with BILLIONS.
A report issued by the U.N. Office for International Oversight Services finds that tens of millions of dollars have been wasted in peacekeeping operations in Sudan over the past three years. According to the report, U.N. workers in Juba (the regional capital of Southern Sudan) are regularly served luxurious meals prepared by five-star chefs, while the general population scrambles to gather enough food to survive on a daily basis.
Why does Marie Antoinette come to mind?
Faith McDonnell, director of the Church Alliance for a New Sudan — an effort of the Institute on Religion and Democracy (IRD) — says the waste of money is a monumental tragedy. Especially, she adds, the same report shows that Christian ministries can do better than government bureaucracies when it comes to providing relief in Southern Sudan.
It’s not just a tragedy, it’s downright criminal! Find any faith based organization, and you find it better run than any governmental bureaucracy. Put the UN in the mix, and you find nothing but bloated waste.
“With good development they could be growing all kinds of crops,” McDonnell continues. “They can grow anything in southern Sudan — the fruit, the grains, everything they have there. But instead of helping to pursue that development for people, [the U.N. representatives are] spending money on chefs and dining tents.”
They truly ARE Useless Numnuts! Dissolve this parasite, NOW! If nothing else, kick them off OUR soil and let those who think they are useful pay for their gourmet meals.
