Kicking Russia out of the UN?!

The war in Ukraine should never have begun. Now the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, tells the United Nations it should exclude Russia. How is that going to achieve peace? Someone please tell me how kicking Russia out of the Security Council is going to work? Especially when Russia is one of two main protagonists ?

Article 1 – The Purposes of the United Nations are:

  1. To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace …

WBT continues to publish Martin’s “The Putin Problem” from a position that the war in Ukraine was and still is solvable if there is an immediate ceasefire and that the parties seek to resolve their differences through the United Nations.

Next month Justice for Palestine will commemorate al Nakba (the catastrophe) in King George Square on Friday 13 March 2022 … please see also that this Sunday 10th April there will be the annual rally for peace on Palm Sunday in Meanjin/Brisbane at 2pm in King George Square.

Now we are hearing the following from the UN political affairs chief Rosemary DiCarlo that the United Nations had received credible allegations “that Russian forces have used cluster munitions in populated areas at least 24 times“.

We specifically refer people to longer standing conflicts that have been systematically ignored in the West to the detriment of millions of refugees.

One such example is that of Palestinian people who have been under genocidal attack by the apartheid state of Israel for over 70 years. The people of Palestine yet continue to resist interference by both the United States and Israel, acting in concert, to drive them out of Palestine. Israel want to replace the Palestinians with a settlers from the US, Russia, and Europe.

The UN found that Israel used cluster bombs in Lebanon and white phosphorus in Gaza, yet not a single sanction has been imposed on Israel by the US, Britain or Australia. Why?

Rain of Fire in Palestine

We thank Martin for his bibliography and for the diverse sources he uses to inform us of the conflict.

    I think the conflict in Yemen, exposes more directly the hypocrisy of the West. The conflict has brought enormous suffering to the civilian population and has been described as one of the worst humanitarian crises. In this instance, though it is a Saudi led coalition, supported by the West, causing the damage. Their main concern seems to be objection to a government in Yemen too closely aligned with Iran. No too different really to objections by Russia of a Ukrainian government too closely aligned with NATO countries as a pretext for conflict.
