United Nations.– Acting on the recommendations of its Fifth Committee (Administrative and Budgetary), the General Assembly today approved an appropriation of almost $7.08 billion for the financing of United Nations peacekeeping for the financial period running from 1 July 2008 to 30 June 2009.

That amount includes $1.24 billion for the United Nations Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC), $1.57 billion for the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID), and $858.77 million for the United Nations Mission in the Sudan (UNMIS) –three of the Organization’s largest peacekeeping operations.

The Assembly then turned to a draft resolution on the Global Forum on Migration and Development (document A/62/L.25/Rev.2), which had been tabled by Belarus, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Guatemala, Honduras, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan and Venezuela.

Stressing the need to promote a comprehensive and coherent discussion on all aspects of the phenomenon of migration, taking into account its importance on the global agenda, the Assembly, by the terms of the text, would recognize the possible positive impact of exchanges of information and closer cooperation between the United Nations and the Global Forum on Migration and Development, which currently functions as a State-led initiative. The first meeting of the Global Forum was held in Brussels in July 2007, under the auspices of the Government of Belgium.

More money to bolster and implement World Government: 7Billion reasons for the U.N. (one of the biggest proponents of the New World/One World Order) to buy influence and throw their weight around in places like Timbuktu or Kualumpur. Face it folks, money makes the world go 'round, and these "Big Brothers" make the money, they print it and they spread it around the globe to achieve their goals. It's not only a shame, it's sickening. Money they make it. When you get it, they take it! It's a real racket. The New World Order: The U.N. ,The World Bank, The International Monetary Fund, The Military Industrial Complex, The Drug Cartels, The Rothchilds, all sit at the same table and say: Let's have a war in Iran, and Earthquake in India, a flood in Colombia, and they all agree. Money talks. The U.N. is uniting the whole blue marble for the powers that be, and no one cares as long as they're making a buck. Euro, Pound, Yen, etc. Welcome the New World Order, it's "bought" with money!
