Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann, the president of the UN General Assembly, may be Stupid And Evil
but he understands the way the winds blow in this world of ours all too well:
At the news conference, he denied ever having heard that Mr. Ahmadinejad had called for Israel to be erased, nor did he know anything about the case of Roxana Saberi, an Iranian-American reporter arrested in Iran. He did not mention the plight of Darfur civilians, nor the United Nations’ effort to persuade Sudan to reverse the evictions of many humanitarian groups.
Describing the United States’ attitude toward the Council, Mr. d’Escoto said, “ ‘You either give me the green light to commit the aggression that I want to commit, or I shall declare you irrelevant.’
"Civilization is not self-supporting. It is artificial. If you are not prepared to concern yourself with the upholding of civilization -- you are done." (Ortega y Gasset)
