Will the UN Intervene in Mali?

Below is an update from EuroNews about the situation in Mali, where Salafists have taken control of the northern part of the country. The government of Mali wants the United Nations to intervene, but the UN — perhaps constrained by its de facto control by the OIC, and thus the Muslim Brotherhood — is reluctant to get involved.

Many thanks to Michael Laudahn for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

The UN is the most useless, corrupt piece of sh*t ever devised. The next thing we'll hear is that they have intervened... on the side of the Islamists. Yet another terror state is created.

The last thing we need is for the UN, with US financing and likely US soldiers, to intervene in every third world dispute, afterwards being involved in a long, costly, and ultimately valueless occupation against guerrilla forces.

Muslim societies have one of two types of government: a dictatorship which will suppress the worst parts of Islam, or an Islamic government that fully suppresses any imaginable human rights.

A government imposed by the West is alien to the culture, like a badly-matched tissue transplant, and will be rejected as soon as western forces are withdrawn. The end result is only to weaken the western countries by killing their soldiers and draining their money.

Our best strategy is to keep the Muslim in the Muslim countries, and keep our borders strong.
