"I want to extend condolences to the families of those who died in the service of the United Nations."

- Al Gore, June 12, 1994, in reference 
to 15 U.S. Servicemen killed while 
enforcing a "no-fly-zone" in Iraq



Are you concerned that...

  • American blood and taxes are being used for military operations unrelated to U.S. defense?

    A May, 2000 Joint Chiefs of Staff report states that since 1990 more than 55 "Operations Other Than War" (military engagements now called "peace-keeping" or "humanitarian" missions), have cost U.S. taxpayers over $21 billion -- more than $4 billion in 2000 alone.  Of course, there is no price tag imaginable for American soldiers who have been killed in UN-sanctioned, UN-led "Operations Other Than War" such as Somalia.

  • That our own government is committed to making the UN more powerful than any nation on Earth?

    In 1961, President John F. Kennedy presented to the UN a three-stage disarmament program entitled Freedom From War. "In Stage III," said this State Department document, "progressive controlled disarmament ... would proceed to a point where no state [nation] would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened UN Peace Force." The disarmament program originally presented in Freedom From War has never been withdrawn. It remains the official policy of the United States.

  • The UN is being given control of our military?

    U.S. forces have been sent to the Persian Gulf and Somalia to carry out UN resolutions. And they were sent to the Balkans under the authority of NATO, a regional subsidiary of the UN. In the Balkans and Somalia, they have been placed under foreign commanders who view the secretaries-general of the UN and NATO -- not the U.S. President -- as their commander in chief.

  • U.S. military personnel are being prepared to become United Nations soldiers?

    About 300 U.S. Marines stationed at Twenty-Nine Palms, California, got a reality check in 1994 when they were required to participate in a "Combat Arms Survey" asking how they felt about statements such as:


  1. "[T]he President of the United States has the authority to pass his responsibilities as Commander-in-Chief to the UN Secretary General";
  2. "I would swear to the following code: 'I am a United Nations fighting person...'"; and
  3. "I would fire upon U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the U.S. government."

"[The Security Council is authorized to] take such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security."

-UN Charter, Article 42

 

"Arrangements for the use of this [proposed UN] force should ensure that the United Nations can effectively deter or suppress any threat or use of arms in violation of the purposes and principles of the United Nations."

- UN "Final Document," Adopted by the 1978 session of the UN General Assembly

 

"Let me give you this final message. If we use the [U.S.] military, we can make the United Nations a really meaningful, effective voice for peace and stability in the future."

President George Bush in December 1990, prior to the launch of Operation Desert Storm
