The United Nation’s takes one step closer to world governance

The United Nations’ International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague has been a questionable entity since its inception. On the surface one would find it hard not to support an international court based on the Nuremburg Tribunal which tried Nazi Leaders after World War II. Few people on the world stage have had the fortitude to stand up and point out that the ICTY’s lofty mission of bringing justice to alleged Yugoslavian war criminals is both unnecessary and a danger to national sovereignty.

Those individuals in the docks, until recently, have not been the most sympathetic individuals. There has been virtually no public outcry about how the United Nations is using the ICTY to establish its sovereignty over independent nations. The nations that are primarily affected are Croatia, Serbia, and Bosnia, which are all former republics of the once Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Unlike the Nazi’s tried for crimes against humanity, the accused who are sitting in docks at The Hague are all from nations with functioning judiciaries at home. Both Croatia and Serbia are more than capable of trying their own citizens. Supporters of the ICTY will claim that neither Croatia nor Serbia would fairly prosecute their own former soldiers and political leaders. This is hard to believe since these are the very nations that, under international pressure, have shipped their own citizens off to stand trial in a foreign land.

Since its inception the goal of many within the United Nations bureaucracy has been world government. The United Nations is, even today, quietly floating the idea of the first world tax. Such a levy would be on oil and would be paid directly by those who pump the crude; the cost would then be passed onto consumer’s world wide.
