Ban Ki-moon will continue to condemn specific terror attacks against the U.S., but he will give scant attention, if any, to years of terrorizing citizens of multiple Middle Eastern nations by the U.S. with its Predator Drone Hellfire Missile bombings, let alone seek to address the reasons for either illegal terrorism or the infinitely more widespread and provocative but legalized U.S. terrorism.
But while the Iranian parliament has pressed its government to petition the UN Security Council in protest of U.S. president Obama openly threatening Iran with nuclear attack, the UN Secretary General, circumventing the positive reports of his own nuclear weapons watchdog agency, helps the U.S. arrange further economic sanctions against this oil rich nation.
Ban Ki-moon was put into office by nomination and pressure from the United States. No one, however, is forcing him to show continual first loyalty and kowtowing exceptional friendliness to the world's superpower in all his speeches and promotions.
Even though most nations are constrained to accept this preferential treatment for the U.S. government through binding economic relationships, it it is absurd that this UN Secretary General parrots the imperialist policies of the U.S. as those of "the community of nations." This makes a joke of the faith the impoverished Majority Mankind places in the United Nations and makes this Korean serving as UN Secretary General appear as a fool for acting as a U.S. lackey.

GROZNY, Chechnya, April 9, 2004 (ENS) - Pro-Moscow Chechen leader Akhmad Kadyrov plans to found a new oil company that would give the devastated republic a greater share of its oil riches, while making him more financially and politically independent from his Russian backers.
Currently, money from sales of Chechen oil have gone to Russian giant Rosneft and its local subsidiary Grozneftegaz. According to Kadyrov, Chechnya sees few benefits.

The least we can do for the Chechen victims, the Russian subway victims and those who will be the future victims on both sides is to inform ourselves and others in the name of promoting earliest intelligent negotiations to replace the continuing cycle of deadly war of one type or another.

Amazingly, there is little public outcry that governments, whose citizens have been murdered, continue to meet urban terrorism with the same military solution that has brought about a repeating & unceasing calamity in the first place. Post-USSR Russia has failed to deal with Chechen ethnic drive for independence other than by the most clumsy and indiscriminate use of military fire power within a civilian population.

"...the United Nations also endorsed a plan that would weaken a separate election-fraud monitoring body but would give Western representatives veto power over its decisions ... senior United Nations official in Kabul, Staffan de Mistura recommended that Western countries go through with financing the parliamentary elections scheduled for September. Diplomats had said they might withhold money unless enough changes were made to ensure that the September ballot did not become a replay of the widespread fraud that pitched the country into crisis after the August presidential election.
