what assurances do we have that these Mujaheddin we are training will respect human rights? how many "legitimate bombing targets" are involved here?  is the administration still working on a bill for Libya action, or is this policy going to be executed apart from the advice and authorization of the Senate?

Statement on China

It is with great pleasure that I can confirm reports of a deal with China regarding debt financing.  Having been involved with these negotiations since the start, it is of particular satisfaction to me that this has been achieved.

I urge the Senate to pass the tariff reductions as soon as possible, lest the Chinese think we are not keeping our word.

I'm also sort of curious as to how long it'll take before we see Ben, Virginia, RPP. I say 3 months at the very most

I win.  It's now been over 4 months Smiley

Also, if anyone else is interested in applying for GTO Ambassador, let me know.

Ladies and Gentlemen, after a long search, I have found a GTO Ambassador.  He is a longstanding citizen with a distinguished record in public service, and I believe he will represent us well.

I officially recommend Tmthforu94 to the President to be the 3rd GTO Ambassador.

Transcript of SoEA Ben's speech to the French Parliament in Paris, France :: July 14, 2011

Mr. President, Madame First Lady, assembled dignitaries

We live in an increasingly changing world.  For too long, the international community has existed in an order that is no longer practical, no longer representative of the actual world situation.  No organization is more representative of that antiquated status quo than the United Nations – an organization founded to promote world peace; but which now operates on several basic premises which no longer hold true.

I am not here to criticize every little fault of the United Nations; that is ultimately unproductive.  Instead, there are several changes which should be mentioned.  First and foremost is the issue of the UN Security Council.  At present, the UNSC represents the International Order as it was in 1945.  Clearly, this is no longer tenable.  We cannot exist in a world where the most important international body’s most important component represents an outdated picture.  To end that stalemate, I am calling for the expansion of the UN Security Council from its current 5 permanent seats to no fewer than 8 permanent seats.  These new seats should be filled with nations that represent the future, not the past, of international power.  Nations such as India, Brazil, South Africa – just to name a few – must be included in the levers of international power in order for the international order to retain legitimacy.  Otherwise, we run the risk of continued stagnation, and inaction.

Additionally, it is imperative that the sole power Veto in the UNSC be abolished.  I am not calling for a simple majority rules way to working, but rather to move closer towards a Supermajority.  For too long, the Veto has made it possible for one nation on any particular issue to block the clear will of the majority not just of the UNSC but of the UN as a whole.  The time has come to liberalize the way the UNSC approves of missions.  Moving to a Supermajority vote retains the basic premise of the UNSC, but it makes it far easier to move ahead; it cuts down on the gridlock.  It cannot continue to be the case that one nation always does the dirty work of another nation, thwarting the clear will of the rest of the international community.

Now that I have thoroughly attacked the UNSC, I wish to quickly address the UN as an entire organization.  The UN is too often paralyzed by inaction.  This organizational inertia needs to end.  It leads to the UN being a step behind on all the critical issues, responding to crises that have either already passed or ballooned into issues we are no longer equipped to handle.  This harms the ability of the UN to help the world; it damages the trust people have in not only the UN, but the specific member nations as well.  By ending the institutional inertia, we can move ahead, make the UN a stronger and more legitimate organization, and move ahead to confronting the challenges of the 21st Century.

The time has come for us to confront a changing world.  Atlasia will be on the forefront of this change; and it is my sincere hope that France, and all other nationalities assembled here today, will join us in facing the Brave New World we are in.  Thank You, and Dave Bless.

Yesterday, our friends in Norway were struck by tragedy.  No nation should ever have to undergo such tragedy.  Atlasia will always be here for the people of Norway; ask, and we will rush to your aid.  Today we are all Norwegians; may Dave protect you, and may Dave aid you in your time of need.

Statement on Libya

First of all, we are thrilled with the apparent taking of Tripoli by the NTC.  We recognize them as the legitimate government of Libya, and their continued success is encouraging.  We fully support the rebels and will be there to assist in the future; currently, they are fighting, and Atlasia is staying out, except for the civilian protection activity already ongoing.
