The "No Shit" File
Quote from today's Times>
"- A tsunami warning system that could have saved thousands of lives this week should be in place in South Asia and Southeast Asia within a year, the United Nations said Wednesday."
Do you think? Who are these forward thinkers at the UN that have stuck their necks out to suggest this? What a concept!
Then, from the same article, this:
"the subject would now become a principal concern at a United Nations conference on disaster reduction scheduled for Jan. 18-22 in Kobe, Japan."
They're now spending money for a conference on disaster reduction?
What about reducing the disaster that is now the UN?
For more on the UN disastrous disaster relief "efforts" see Diplomad, including this quote from Mr. Egelund, aka Jan McGimme: "we will have to set up a camp for relief workers – 90 of them – which is fully self-contained, with kitchen, food, lodging, everything, because they have nowhere to stay and we don't want them to be an additional burden on the people there."
