Remember all those news stories about UN Peacekeepers committing rape and murder and involved in sex trafficking during the 90s and 2000s? No?
I do. You perhaps do not. Why?
a) Peacekeepers are immune from prosecution.
b) Military Industrial Complex will lose money if their private contractors are held responsible.
c) The victims are women and girls. Who gives a shit about them?
d) The Academy of Arts and Sciences (The Oscars) refused to accept this film as a nomination for Best Picture. If they had, more attention and subsequent worldwide outrage would have been achieved. However, there are financiers who are involved in “Hollywood” (Steve Mnuchin anyone? He financed a lot of movies, including Jurassic World–and the MFer is now in charge of our treasury) who also have a stake in sex trafficking’s money-making operations and they aren’t about to risk a light shone in their direction.
e) Barack Obama was directly responsible for criminalizing whistleblowing, despite a law that protects them. Because of his influence, The Whistleblower was forcibly downgraded as an inferior film that no one should believe.
Because the Military Industrial Complex is so vast and corrupt, it is impossible for the UN to change, to remove immunity for criminals under their direct authority, and for their internal investigative efforts to achieve SQUAT. When they breathe fire and aggressively condemn a country for human rights abuses, tell them that they’re no better than a contaminated government whose hands are dripping blood.
