The Gross Crime Committed against Humanity in the Presence of the United Nations.
By Lero Odola*
With my full respect to those who will oppose me, I do understand that they may have their own reservations on the mentioned man-made tragedies phenomenon. It could be essential for them to fully understand too why I have to say this. However, for those who have gone through it, or might have some individual experiences of these occurrences, it could be notable and painful facts for them. Most of the coarse crimes against humanity, which have been committed indirectly or directly, have been within attention of United Nations.
The tremendous genuine profession the UN has been doing tirelessly is digging mass graves for the dead victims and distributions of the food and the no- food items to the perpetrators. The mentioned events and others are compelling evidence to show gross weakness of the UN. The UN has failed to protect the innocent but praise the strong. The UN's future is looming with widespread fear, mistrust, and disrespect among those who have been relying on its temporary unsatisfactory services. The huge question that may remains unanswered is that: does the UN favor wars to continue to keep is offices running. Why is this organization afraid of war criminals and leaders who have been involved in committing the atrocities against innocent people? Is there any motive for the UN not to authorize own forces to clam down the machineries of injustices? Death is happening in Darfur everyday. The UN is there. South Sudanese were killed in cold blood in Egypt by the Egyptian government. The UN was there in its various forms. Some ethnic groups in this world have experienced huge amount of organized crime against humanity. These criminal acts have exceeded the eight steps of genocide and beyond as has been defined by both the human right watch and genocide watch. Among these tribes are the Anuak ethnic group in East Africa who live in artificial man-made border between Ethiopia and Sudan [in GAMBELLA region in Ethiopia and AKOBO and POCHALLA Counties in Southern Sudan]. They have been subjected to systematic human rights violation .To verify the accuracy of this claim please visit websites of www.genocidewatch.org and www.humanright.org. The in-depth classified materials, containing the well done job by the both organizations about the Gambella and Rwanda genocide are available there.
I like to dwell more on the Anyuak case. The message here to the Human Right Watch, Genocide Watch, ICC, EU, UK, AU, US, US Department of International Crisis Respond Groups, Amnesty International, and all peace lovers of any nation to be alert and responsive even to a phone call any time from any group or individual reporting any massacre of the innocent [especially the Anuak people]. Anuak live in remote area where there is no media outlet to report their daily problems. The Anuak can't afford another man-made intentional atrocities. What they desperately need is to be rescued and get special protection and attention from the peace loving nations. Kofi Annan can not come up again with another regret and disgraceful report as he did in the case of Rwanda. General Koffi Annan, admitted that they could have saved lives in Rwanda genocide if the UN had alerted the international community at the time of the crime. If no care taken, similarly the Anuaks will be wiped out very soon by the hostile neighboring armed gang tribes sponsored by unrealistic and unfair government[s] who have never provided any protection except for the organized killing to continue. Anuak only glimpse of hope from the creator for them to exist in this gloomy world.
Overall, the UN has failed to execute its mandate to protect the oppressed and the poor of the world.
