Syria’s regime slaughters hundreds of protestors and the corrupt UN still wants to reward them with $ 38 million in aid?
You got it baby. Ban Ki Moonbat won’t let you down:
(FOX News) â€” WhileÂ Syria’s government is killing hundreds of pro-democracy protesters, theÂ United Nations Development Program, or UNDP, is considering whether to approve a $38 million, five-year aid program forÂ Damascus, to continue what it calls “a well-functioning partnership with the government.”
Never mind the ‘pro-democracy’ protesters. Lets take a closer look:
First of all, lets blame da Joooozzz:
Iranian Envoy Blames US, Israel for Developments in Syria:Â Â The demonstrators wonder “why are we being shot at, we’re not Israelis?”
Approval of the plan is on theÂ agenda for the next meeting of the development agency’s 36-member Executive Board, slated to begin on June 6.
The U.S. is among a dozen Western nations that are board members. Among other things, the program calls for UNDP to “continue to work closely with the government of Syria,” led by President Bashar Assad, while strengthening its collaboration with “NGOs [non-government organizations], the private sector, the donor community and local authorities”â€”all of which may be impossible to do amid the Assad regime’s ugly crackdown and its aftermath.
The proposal says little about political conditions under the Syrian dictatorship, except to note mildly that the country’s “democratic governance needs strengthening.”
When queried about whether the program would be approved as scheduled, a UNDP spokesman told Fox News that the question of whether to go ahead with the approval “is currently under discussion.”
Members of the U.N.’s on-the-ground country team in Syria, which is lead by UNDP, “will revert to us on their recommendations soon,” the spokesman added.
Draft documents outlining the Syrian program, along with those for a handful of other Arab nations currently facing political turmoil, are not available on the UNDP website, even though similar programs for countries ranging from Ethiopia to Honduras are already posted.
Fox News obtained a copy of the Syria document, which optimistically projects that by 2015, with UNDP “enabling” support worth about $12.4 million, the Assad regime will be embarked on a major administrative reform program, “and will ensure increased participation of civil society and the private sector in the reform process.”
