The UN of GWB

"The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has handed out the first batch of 1,600 goats and 200 cows to farmers in southern Lebanon as part as its programme to assist them recover from livestock losses accrued during the war in mid-2006."

I just received a phone call from a person I know who was interested in bidding to sell FAO goats for distribution. He called to complain that the process of selecting the animal stock was totally corrupt and that the purchasing committee had severe conflict of interest. I cant help noticing that this is the worst season to buy goats as this is when they are the most expensive: it is the middle of the milking season.

Notice also how this UN article refers to
"the war between the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) and Hizbollah in 2006". In Lebanon, we call it by its real name: Israel's war on Lebanon. But what do you expect from the UN of GWB?

But GWB and his ilk distrust or even hate the UN. Many of his religious brethren consider that they are the start of the end times foretold in the bible - one world government, the coming of the beast, 666, etc.

Stark raving bonkers really.

So, being pedantic, I would argue that the UN of GWB is an oxymoron.
