for Secretary of State
president of the Hudson Institute, say the new "Superman Returns" movie
is politically correct in that the man of steel has come back
not to protect the American way of life but to save the world.
Superman, London says in a Washington Examiner column, "has
been converted into a transnationalist. I suspect that in a
sequel, Superman will be employed by the United Nations."
say, if that was the case, the world body might actually get
something constructive done, rather than sexually abuse kids
and spread AIDS through its "peacekeepers."
on to say, "Superman is a symbol of extraordinary actions,
actions-I should note-that only the United States can perform.
If the day comes when American military forces are obliged
to wear a U.N. insignia, the United States' stature on the
world stage will be in decline."

I've got news for him: that day has come.
It occurred under the Clinton Administration
when Army Specialist Michael New was ordered
to wear a U.N. uniform, including a U.N.
insignia. New was given a bad-conduct discharge
for refusing to carry out this illegal and
unconstitutional order. The additional tragedy
is that the Bush Administration has continued
the Clinton policy of putting our troops
under U.N. command and in U.N. uniforms,
despite the campaign pledge of George W.
Bush not to do so.
for Michael New have fought this case in
the courts for over 10 years. Most recently
a petition in the U.S. Court of Appeals
in Washington on the Fourth of July, for
an en banc hearing on his recent
dismissal by a three-judge panel from the
the current Uniform Code of Military Justice," their
press release points out, "President Bill
Clinton should have been either court-martialed,
or impeached, for attempting to change the
U.S. uniform in direct contradiction of the
Army Regulations then existing."
Bush Administration's continuation of the
Clinton policy reflects one of the key failings
of the President-his inability or unwillingness
to reform federal bureaucracies in order
to carry out his campaign promises.
the welcome nomination of John Bolton as
Ambassador to the world body, U.S. policy
toward the U.N. is being handled largely
by Nicholas Burns, the Undersecretary of
State for Political Affairs and a Clinton
Administration holdover. He has engineered
several moves to appease the anti-American
majority at the U.N., such as the recent
decision by the U.S. to drop insistence on
a budget cap in order to force the adoption
of reforms. A career senior foreign service
officer, Burns was Spokesman for the Department
of State and Acting Assistant Secretary for
Public Affairs for Secretary of State Warren
Christopher and Secretary Madeleine Albright
during the Clinton Administration.
who was recently on all of the Sunday interview
shows discussing the North Korean problem,
is also the architect of the Bush/Clinton
Administration policy on Kosovo, which anticipates
the dismemberment of Serbia and the establishment
of an independent Muslim state in its province
like his policy toward the U.N., this approach
is running into several problems. Russian
President Vladimir Putin has said that if
Kosovo becomes independent, Abkhazia and
South Ossetia in Georgia should similarly
a BBC interview,
Burns protested that "Kosovo is unique." Because
a "major international war was fought there," he
insists, "Kosovo's sovereignty needs to be
determined and agreed by all of us in the
that war, waged by the Clinton Administration,
was never approved either by the U.S. Congress
or the U.N.!
the "international community" decide the
national sovereignty of a country under these
circumstances is not only unique but unprecedented
and dangerous. This kind of diplomatic doublespeak
opens the door for more U.N. authority and
control over the nations of the world.
the failure of the U.N. force in Lebanon,
U.N. chief Kofi Anan is now calling for another
U.N.-backed force to help restore Lebanon's
sovereignty. It demonstrates how the world
body exploits its own failures to grow in
size and influence.
Rice back a U.N. role in Lebanon? She should
make a break with Burns. CRO
