I Guess It All Depends...

...on what your definition of "cease-fire" is.

Classic example here of how to do things the U.N. way (and get yourself perforated with machine gun fire at the same time). Remember, this is the organization that is actively seeking to abrogate the rights of American citizens to keep and bear small arms.

Let's start with the headline:

9 unarmed police killed in East Timor

Now, why do you suppose the police were disarmed? Sounds a little odd to me, seeing as I'm not British.

DILI, East Timor --Soldiers fired on unarmed police in East Timor's capital Thursday, killing nine and wounding 27, as international troops landed to try to end the fighting that threatens to push the country closer to civil war.

Among the wounded were two United Nations police advisers, part of U.N. staff trying to end an hour-long attack by soldiers on the national police headquarters in Dili, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in New York.

The U.N. police and military advisers negotiated a cease-fire with the Timorese soldiers, under which the police officers were to surrender their weapons and leave the building, Dujarric said.

No mention of the soldiers laying down their arms, eh? Sounds more like a coerced unilateral disarmament plan, if you ask me. And, we all know how effective those have proven to be. Just ask the residents of Chicago and Washington, DC (or Roxbury, for that matter) who can't leave their homes at night for fear of being mugged on the way to the corner store for a pack of smokes.

"As the unarmed police were being escorted out, army soldiers opened fire on them killing nine and wounding 27 others, including two U.N. police advisers," he said.

Well, that plan went south pretty fucking quick. Way to "negotiate", guys!

And, you wanna take away my guns, Kofi?

Go POUND SAND, you worthless goat fuck!
