Interpol: Arguments Unbound!!
With the chairperson setting up the ground rules fordiscussion meant to be strictly adhered to, thesession progressed to address the legality of extraordinary rendition. When many countries sharedthe opinion that human rights should take the centerspace in the discussion, the chairperson was of theopinion that though human rights play an importantrole, they are not the only matter of concern. Hesuggested the discussion to move in a directionwhere the legality of extraordinary rendition could bediscussed so that the committee can formulateguidelines to promote or to not promote the act of extraordinary rendition. The delegate of UAE stronglyrecommended the undertaking of extraordinaryrendition under the strict supervision of the Interpol,or the next option, she said, would be to illegalize italtogether. The delegate of UAE went as far asaccusing the US by blatantly taking nonsensical fiction.This and raising her placard got her gagged.Countries including UAE, Mexico,Netherland, Australia, China and Jordan aimed tolegalize extraordinary rendition with rights whilecountries including Iran, Finland, Japan, Belgium andSwitzerland agreed to a blanket ban on extraordinaryrendition. Amidst all the deliberations the delegate of Israel wished to leave the fight and argument to theleaders and escape for a cup of coffee with the
delegate of Iran. Let’s hope Iran has a positive reply in
Disarmament: Curse or Crisis??
The Council on Disarmament dealt with an arms dealcrisis. The USA was groundlessly blamed while the KGBgot away without scratches despite possessing Intelthat only terrorists had access to. The Russian delegatehowever continued to raise suspicions against the USA,despite the fact that US delegates were killed while innegotiation with China regarding its possession of USmilitary equipment, that was quite clearly sent to Iraq.In fact, Chinese involvement in the crisis was highlysuspicious in that it breached the trust of India and theUS, and furthermore seized the arms from the Somalia
pirates, de facto ‘stealing from the thieves’ (delegate
of Spain) and claimed it as their own. When faced withthe terrorist attacks on
South Korea and China’s
proximity to North and South Korea, the Chinese
delegation chose to ‘distance *itself+ from theallegations’. This act of China was considered a blatant
violation of everything discussed in the past two days.China, in fact, suddenly developed a conscience at one
point and claimed to ‘respect the sovereignty’ of India.
The fact that everyone is trying to deal over here is theblatant lies by China and how the U.S was blamed fornothing yet are giving away everything.
