The UN, allies and AIDS
Jonathan Pait
January 23, 2003

  • The Democratic leadership is starting to whine that Bush should slow down the advance toward war with Iraqi. There may be good reasons to argue against involving ourselves in the conflict, but their reasoning gets under my skin. It involves our “allies” and their lack of support for our cause.
  • The way I figure, France and Germany are not our allies in this case. They may be neutral, but they are not allies. Strange how they signed on to allow the use of force in the earlier United Nations’ resolution, but are now back peddling. We have every right to act in our own defense without their help. If an ally does not consider your needs and protection, is it really your ally?

    I don’t think so.

  • Speaking of going alone. I have found myself screaming at the television, radio and print lately. It isn’t just the reporters and pundits that are driving me crazy. I am hearing some scary stuff from Middle America. What makes me scream? It is the deference given to the United Nations.
  • I heard a regular Joe recently who was quoted as saying, “I don’t think we should get involved in a war without approval from the world governing body.” (I believe it was on the NBC Nightly News.) If that doesn’t scare the majority of Americans, I’m more scared than I have been! Note, he did not say that he felt we should not act until we reach a consensus among our allies. He called the United Nations “THE world governing body.”

    Think about it.

  • I have a friend that was recently appointed to serve on the Department of Health and Human Services Presidential Advisory Commission on HIV and AIDS. I am saddened by the attacks that have been leveled at Jerry Thacker. It appears that he will be pressured to remove himself from the commission. It is a sad thing.
  • HIV-AIDS is not an issue exclusive to homosexuals. It affects many people from diverse walks of life. To silence someone simply for disagreeing with the homosexual lifestyle and agenda would be wrong. Jerry’s approach of behavior change (abstinence) is a logical and scientific option to be considered in attacking this dreaded disease.

    The homosexuals cry foul because they maintain that abstinence-until-marriage does not help them since law does not allow them to marry. Here they slip up. Okay, even if you didn’t get married and you abstained from sex until you found a single partner, that would in affect be the same thing. The fact is the vast majority of homosexuals have multiple partners. It isn’t the homosexuality that causes AIDS to be so prevalent among that community, it is the promiscuous behavior that makes it so prominent.

    It is a tragedy that those promoting homosexual behavior have hijacked the fight against this disease. Fighting the disease has become secondary to advancing the homosexual agenda. You have your head in the sand if you think that the commission is suddenly going to become a hotbed for abstinence-only-prudes. However, what is being attempted is the removal of that viewpoint entirely from the table.

    That is sad.
