Of course such a pronouncement doesn’t bear the slightest scrutiny. Sure, it’s a nice sentiment that everyone can get behind (“Yes, we should stop war for an arbitrarily defined period of time!”) but that’s precisely the point; it’s a PR move that is designed to swirl the Security Council and “humanitarian pause” and “world peace” around in our head so that we all end up with warm, fuzzy feelings about the UN and come to believe that there is some sort of global governmental body that can stop war at the snap of its fingers.
(Did I mention the Saudis just carried out an airstrike against a Yemeni village?)
As usual, there is a modicum of truth to the sentiment; without our misleaders constantly conspiring to whip up public anger against perceived enemies and purchasing billions of dollars of military equipment, it’s highly doubtful that there would be very much large-scale international warfare at all. Do you really think the average Saudi would be motivated to help fund and equip an Air Force, and then volunteer to jump in a fighter jet and conduct bombing raids on Yemeni villages, slaughtering men, women and children they’ve never met and who never caused them offense, all on their own? Without a government (or, in this case, a spoiled crown prince) deciding that it is in “the Kingdom’s” interests to carry out such strikes (and then spending ungodly amounts of that self-same Kingdom’s money to make it happen), would such warfare be taking place at all?
So, yes, if the global elistists truly wanted to bring about world peace, it wouldn’t just be possible, it would be fairly straightforward. They would just have to dismantle the war machine they created, renounce the warmaking powers they bestowed on themselves, and get behind the movement to criminalize war.
But of course that’s not what they’re doing. Instead we’re treated to a mere Security Council publicity stunt, passing a resolution calling for “humanitarian pauses” in our regularly scheduled warfare . . . that will naturally resume in 90 days (or less). One presumes this cessation of hostilities also applies to any Palestinians thinking of defending their homeland from impending Israeli annexation.
No, this latest resolution means nothing of importance for those seeking actual world peace. What it does do is confirm yet again that—exactly as I have had cause to point out time and again since this coronavirus crisis started—the REAL threat to world peace is the war that these same misleaders are waging against their own populations.
But of course the UN Security Council is not interested in ending (or even “humanitarian pausing”) these threats to humanity. No, the very idea that the clowns and puppets at the Security Council can deliver world peace (or a “humanitarian pause” in armed conflict) via a simple resolution (with a 90-day expiry date) is absurd on its face; thinking that they actually desire world peace is even more absurd.
The world misleaders are not interested in actual world peace. They do not want the peace that comes when humanity is free from the clutches of the governments that seek to track, trace, control and sanction their every movement. That is the vision of world peace that is never presented in these cheap publicity stunts at the UN.UN Declares World Peace!
