Today marks the day sixty seven years ago when the forces of the United Nations, after six gruelling, hard and bloody years of struggle, marked victory over the Axis in Europe. From 1941 The United Kingdom, Poland, the Dominions of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, the USA, the Commonwealth, the Soviet Union, China, Czechoslovakia, Belgium, Yugoslavia, Greece, India, the Netherlands, Norway and others stood together, twenty-six nations in all, under the alliance of the UN. From 1942 onwards various other nations joined, including France in 1944. The Declaration by United Nations was made in January 1942, and is in fact the establishing document behind the United Nations we know today.
Not that you would know any of the above from the UN website. The modern UN prefers to forget where it came from. "The UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between countries, and to provide a platform for dialogue. It contains multiple subsidiary organizations to carry out its missions." says the modern organisation's mendacious bollocks.
They can't quite explain the reasons why the UK, the USA, Russia and China - oh, and latecomer France - have permanent seats on the Security Council and so avoid the topic completely. They can't bring themselves to declare that our nations, our forebears, bled and sweated and toiled to secure the freedom they all now enjoy.
