The U.N.'s rape of the innocents
Michelle Malkin

February 16, 2005

Kofi Annan must have the world's thickest set of industrial-quality earplugs.

How else can he block out the cries of Congolese girls raped by United Nations "peacekeepers" sent to protect the innocents from harm?

Fifty U.N. peacekeepers and U.N. civilian officers face an estimated 150 allegations of sexual exploitation and rape in the Congo alone. Last Friday, ABC's "20/20" program aired a devastating expose by investigative reporter Brian Ross highlighting some of the worst alleged crimes.

The accused include Didier Bourguet, a U.N. senior official from France charged with running an Internet pedophile ring in the Congo. According to ABC News and others, pictures taken from his personal computer contained thousands of photos of him with hundreds of girls. Police say Bourguet had turned his bedroom, plastered with mirrors and rigged with remote-control cameras, into a stealth porn studio. He was caught in a sting operation while allegedly preparing to rape a 12-year-old girl.

In one of the photos confiscated from Bourguet, a tear can be seen rolling down the cheek of a victim.

Hundreds of babies, fathered by U.N. personnel, have been born to Congolese girls and women -- including the 15-year-old deaf mute daughter of Aimee Tsesi, who told Ross she was turned away at the gates of the U.N. camp when she went for assistance. "The U.N. is not able to give me food or money for my grandson," she told ABC News. "But if the U.N. hadn't brought this soldier here, my daughter would not have become pregnant. And I would not be going through this suffering."

Annan's spinners would have us believe that the problem of U.N. sex predators is confined to a tiny band of rogues and locals beyond the control of headquarters. But according to Bourguet's lawyer, there was an entire network of U.N. personnel who had sex with underage girls in Congo and the Central African Republic. Investigators are now digging into claims of U.N. infiltration by organized pedophiles.

The Times of London reports further that two Russian pilots who served in the U.N.'s peacekeeping contingent based in Mbandaka "paid young girls with jars of mayonnaise and jam to have sex with them. They filmed the sessions and sent the tapes to Russia. But the men were tipped off and left the area before U.N. investigators arrived." The paper also reports that at least two other U.N. officials -- a Ukrainian and a Canadian -- left the Congo after getting local women pregnant.

In July 2002, Congolese military official Jean Pierre Ondekane said that all the U.N. mission in Congo would be remembered for in the village of Kisangani was "for running after little girls." Annan's special adviser from Jordan, Prince Zeid Raad Al Hussein, concluded last year that the "situation appears to be one of 'zero-compliance with zero-tolerance' throughout the mission."

Human rights groups say such monstrosities have been tolerated by U.N. brass for years. Joseph Loconte noted in the Weekly Standard last month that the Congo revelations come three years after another U.N. report found "widespread" evidence of sexual abuse of West African refugees. Girls and women in East Timor, Cambodia and Kosovo have reported sex crimes perpetrated by U.N. peacekeepers.

In 2001, American whistleblower Kathryn Bolkovac, a Nebraska policewoman who worked for U.N. security in Bosnia, uncovered scores of sex crime allegations and prostitution rings in the Balkans involving her fellow U.N. employees. Girls were forced to dance in bars for U.N. personnel and beaten or raped, Bolkovac reported. After being fired from her job for "time sheet irregularities," she told a British tribunal that Mike Stiers, the international police task force's deputy commissioner, flippantly dismissed victims of human trafficking as "just prostitutes."

This mother of all humanitarian abuse scandals at the U.N. is only just beginning to pierce the world's conscience. Annan has trotted out a refurbished zero-tolerance policy and is trumpeting a few arrests in Morocco. But such faint-hearted damage control measures are not enough.

It's time to rethink the nearly half-billion dollars in aid we send to U.N. peacekeeping operations. How much more aid must we squander on holier-than-thou wolves in do-gooders' clothing? For the sake of the innocents raped and pillaged in the name of humanitarianism, let's get stingy.

Is this written and posted in an attempt to somehow negate the attrocities committed by US troops over the past 50 years?

What is this? Hello.....

Atrocities by US troops? Our soldiers have been dying to defend your right to speak mindless drivel like this. And all you can do is slam them and their sacrifices for what the anti- American liberal media has spoon fed you?

What about atrocities committed by terrorists, communists and third-world governments? Are you an apologist for them? Is your religion, if you have one, Muslim?

I notice you don't have the courage to sign your name to this. I don't blame you, I wouldn't want to be associated with it either.

Get a grip!

Just pointing out that attrocities are committed by both sides and by all countries. It is alright for some one to post if other countries do something wrong but heaven forbid if we mention the US doing the same. Then we are all a bunch of left wing commie pinkos. Oh wait...now it's changed to Muslim in your eyes.

If the writer can show one article of Abuse sanctioned and condoned by the US military I will humbly support the UN,


Oh I'm sure you will find some abuse as it is there but in our country, those that commit crimes are punished, especially in the Military. And understanding Military Justice, is understanding that reasonable doubt is not required. only a perponderance of the evidence thus it's conviction rate far excedes any other court in the world. In every abuse case brought to the surface by the media the US goverment and Military has dealt with the individulals Harshly and the price was paid.

In all the UN cases the coverup and scandle lingers unchecked, uncontrolled and swept under "your" rug. must be hard for you to stumble across the room without falling in thier scum.


I prefer Radical Islamic terrorists instead of Muslum, as I'm sure thier is a differance, and commie socialists reds can sometimes be reformed with truth and honesty, RIT's can't. While commie socilaists reds at least have ideals unproven by practicality, thier about as intolorable as liberal lefties, and seldom want to hear any truth.

I am as right wing as they come but unlike you do not resort to childish name calling and am also fortunate enough to realize there are lots of ways to skin a cat. Must be terrible to have such a narrow view of the world and paint anyone who doesn't see something through your eyes as wrong.

The post above is correct not all Muslims are terrorists and I know several who are fine upstanding people that just happen to belong to a different religion. I understand if that doesn't work for your racist mentality "Liberty Belle".

Skinning Cats is not nice :!: Unless you first kill them.:twisted:

But really Calling someone Racist for responding to your comment; ( "Then we are all a bunch of left wing commie pinkos. Oh wait...now it's changed to Muslim in your eyes." ) is really not appropriate. and her initial question to you was not nearly as harsh as you condemning 50 years of American attrocities.

"In general use, an atrocity designates a politically or ethnically motivated killing of civilians. In international law, more precise terms are war crime and crime against humanity." "An atrocity can be a single specific event, or a series of events, or can refer to genocide. The defining characteristic of an atrocity is its brutal or systematic nature."

By that definition it would seem that any body accusing a country or group of People af committing Atrocities does not like that country or group very much. " I will defend my Country with honor not only on the field of battle but in the minds of all."

AS for the initial Guest comment, ("Just pointing out that attrocities are committed by both sides and by all countries. ")

how can you be "(I am as right wing as they come)"

it doesn't seem to me that some one who is As right wing as they come would take such a liberal anti-American stance as to Blame America for the last 50 years of world attrocities:???:

And I have yet to find one Muslum who believes the we as Christians have a right to exist, ussually when asked they go into a form of double talk and evade the answer.

I take it you posted that comment to negate the facts presented in an effort to deflect critisim away from the real abuser of human rights the UN.

By the way who is now on the UN human rights commission? :???:

"Among its key findings, the report highlights that the Commission suffers a serious problem of credibility that casts doubts on the overall reputation of the United Nations. The report, entitled “A More Secure World: Our Shared Responsibility” and prepared by an panel of eminent persons, notes that the Commission’s most serious problem is that so many of its 53 member states are themselves responsible for serious human rights violations.

“The report is on target in recognizing that gross human rights violators seek seats on the Commission to protect themselves from criticism,” said Joanna Weschler, U.N. advocacy director for Human Rights Watch. “But instead of establishing membership criteria linked to a state’s human rights record, the panel members give up the battle
"

""A government that engages in wholesale abuses of its citizens should not be eligible for a seat at the table, especially a country just criticized by the Commission," said Joanna Weschler, UN advocacy director for Human Rights Watch. "This is a major credibility test of the regional bloc structure at the UN in terms of how it nominates candidates for key UN posts," she said. "
