UN Demands Bigger, Stronger UN “Police” Force
With its so-called “peacekeeping” military troops facing outrage worldwide for raping and exploiting children with impunity, the United Nations is launching a major push to expand and further empower its UN “police” force known as UNPOL.
At the same time, the controversial global organization is working to usurp more influence over national police forces, with the UN bringing together more than 100 national police chiefs this month at what is its first-ever UN “Chiefs of Police Summit” (UN COPS). The scheming comes less than two years after UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on local police forces in the United States to comply with what he cryptically referred to as “international standards.”
At the center of the UN’s efforts to empower its self-styled “Police” force is a new report commissioned by the UN that — surprise! — claims the UN Police need more money, power, and prestige. “In reality, the [UN] Police Division’s current capacity and resourcing is insufficient and has not kept pace with the increased tasks and complexity of police mandates in peace operations,” the report claimed. In other words, hand over more resources — money, power, officers, technology, and more — to keep up with the UN’s vision for globalized “law” enforcement. The report also called for a “paradigm shift” in how the UN “polices” people around the world.
Among the recommendations is that “the current staffing level of the Police Division needs to be increased in order to align proportionally with the expanded role of police in contemporary peace operations.” However, the number of UN “police officers” has already ballooned from 2,000 in 1999 to more than 13,000 today. The report also called for upgrading the UN’s “Police Adviser” bureaucrat to “Assistant Secretary-General” status. Finally, the document called for the roll-out of a “strategic framework” that envisions UN police serving as a “substitute for local police,” “helping secure elections,” and even fighting “crime and violent extremism.” The UN has also proudly launched a global war on “ideologies,” including “anti-Muslim bigotry.”
