BREAKING NEWS: UN OCCUPIES CALIFORNIA

In a startling development today, United Nations troops from the Sudan, Tanzania and Chad, in a series of landings at San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, occupied the state of California in a dramatic step to ensure and protect the independent movement of the majority Mexicans there. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, recently elected to replace the departed Kofi Annan, said that the UN’s experience in Kosovo provided ample precedence and justification for the serious escalation of the conflict.

Kosovo, a province of Serbia, had been taken over by the UN several years ago to prevent further attempts by the Serbs to evict forcefully the Albanian Muslim illegals who had swarmed into that area in previous years. Albanians now constitute a majority of the population of Kosovo and have called for independence much as the leaders of the Mexican population of California have done. The UN has been attempting to arrange that independence in Kosovo (see article below).

Democratic leaders of the House and Senate, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid, have prevented President Bush from using US forces to repel the occupying force saying that the Posse Comitatus Act might be construed as preventing federal troops from acting in this instance and that they were willing to discuss all of the issues with both UN personnel and also members of the ‘California for Mexicans’ movement. Senator Reid said that all options were on the table.

Kosovo: Eternally Dependent?

PRISTINA, Kosovo. -- This small European nonstate tucked between Albania, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia is a living testament to the inability of the U.N. to solve problems. As some will recall, eight long years ago NATO and the U.N. intervened to stop the war between Serbia and its province of Kosovo, largely inhabited by people of Albanian origin (more than 90 percent currently). Kosovo has been under U.N. jurisdiction since 1999, with NATO troops, including a contingent from the U.S., keeping the peace.

By now, the U.N. was supposed to have resolved the final status of Kosovo, rebuilt the infrastructure, eliminated the corruption, and have the institutions of government operating on their own. Despite having spent 25 times more money and having 50 times more foreign peacekeeping troops (KFOR) than Afghanistan on a per capita basis, the above goals still have not been achieved. The 2 million Kosovans have been seeking (and sometimes fighting for) independence from Serbia, which they thought they would have by the end of this year. But again, the decision has been delayed by a nervous United Nations.

This is not a true story; it is satire. I apologize for not making that more clear.
