Seriously, how the f**k did he become a judge!? (also, why the UN is never going to invade the US)
“He (Obama) is going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN. What’s going to happen when that happens? I’m thinking worst case scenario - civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe.”
That quote comes from a Texas judge named Tom Head. And he said that to a local Fox station (not Fox News, they are different entities). He also added that taxes needed to be raised so they could prepare for a ‘civil war’.
Seriously? Again, this is why we need to have some sort of basic knowledge of the world’s political system.
Okay, will the United States be ever invaded by the United Nations? No. It won’t. Ever. Simply put, the United Nations’ Security Council is the only body within the UN to authorise the use of force - by states (though states can ignore it, as the primary actor in international politics is the STATE) and by the United Nations. And guess who has veto power in the United Nations? The United States.
Yes, one conspiracy theory could say that the United States could simply not veto it. But guess what, Russia and China could possibly also veto it. Why? Well, look at Syria. And Libya in 2011. Russia and China are reluctant to have the UN send forces in any conflict inside a state - because it has wider implications. If they allow this case to happen, then this could allow the UN to intervene in China or Russia in terms of internal unrest.
Though, I might add Head is right in one aspect - a UN peacekeeping force can be called in during civil unrest, disobedience and civil war; and that only occurs when the country asks for assistance. However, if you’re a first world country such as the United States, you’re not likely to get a peacekeeping force.
