Ban Ki-moon Names New Peace Operations Panel
UNITED NATIONS, October 31 (RIA Novosti) – The United Nations’ Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon named a new High Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations on Friday and appointed former Timor-Leste leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Jose Ramos-Horta to chair the panel.
“The world is changing and UN peace operations must change with it if they are to remain an indispensable and effective tool in promoting international peace and security. (…)” – the UN said.
“It will consider a broad range of issues, facing peace operations, including the changing nature of conflict, evolving mandates, good offices and peace-building challenges, managerial and administrative arrangements, planning, partnerships, human rights and protection of civilians, uniformed capabilities for peacekeeping operations and performance,” he added.
Beyond Ramos-Horta, the Panel’s members include Jean Arnault of France, Abhijit Guha of India, current Under-Secretary-General for Field Support Ameerah Haq of Bangladesh, Andrew Hughes of Australia, Wang Xuexian of China, Hilde Johnson of Norway, Bruce Jones of Canada, Youssef Mahmoud of Tunisia, B. Lynn Pascoe of the United States, Ian Martin of the United Kingdom, Henrietta Joy Abena Nyarko Mensa-Bonsu of Ghana, Floriano Peixoto Vieira Neto of Brazil and Alexander Ilitchev of Russia.
Let’s translate now the new-speak UN diplomatic dialect.
Old UN gobblers need to gobble down better chow now, to drink better vodka and other aromatic alcoholic beverages, fuck up new younger whores and travel on board of the best and expensive private airliners.
All the changes will be supervised of course by another High Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations to control changes within High Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations.
There’s nothing more exy for Mr What-The-Shit-Name-Is-Of-The-Full-Moon-Face, the GenSec of the UN than Peace on Earth and all the organizations to verify all Ban-Ki-moon cronies to be well provided with according luxuries.
BTW, what a Ban, he only “allows“, never has temerity to “ban“.
