Ian Martin and the Tapes

Oops, looks like long time blogdai nemesis Ian Martin of the tattered UNMIN has finally met his match.

Sorry Ian, apparently, one of the most difficult things for a UN employee to be is an idealogue.

It seem poor Ian gave an inflammatory report to the UN that was highly critical of Israeli intentions

Another Oops for poor Ian: Our dear deposed PM Prachanda was caught on tape confessing that he exaggerated the strength of the Maoist forces by some factor of five. Compound this with the latest news that Maoists claim that they never turned over their weaponry per sir Ian's request and instead kept the best and most lethal armaments away from UNMIN scrutiny and inventory bodes poorly for the efficacy of such UN missions in Nepal.

Per Ian Martin's request as well, monitors were to be stationed at all Nepali polling places during the last elections. blogdai immediately shouted "fraud" and "incompetance" at the idea. Having first hand knowledge (and photos, mind you) blogdai can assure all gentle readers that the UN delegation never made it out of the Kathmandu valley during election time. I saw most of them at club 1905 and they had no intention of leaving the valley for any "rough" travel to polling stations in the village.

Ian Martin's legacy in Nepal is one of abject failure. The worst of which is his idea of containing Maoists in cantonments. A complete an unmitigated failure of both concept, policy and implementation, this was. Maoists chose who would reside in said cantonments, had no sense of restricted movement, and basically carried on as usual. Such is the legacy that Israeli critics capatilized upon.

A career in ruins:

Well, that's it for Ian, finally. After blogdai has been calling for his removal from the world stage for the last couple of years, the pompous grandstander with the English pedigree has finally been brought down by Israeli scrutiny. They've rightly pointed to his failures in Nepal as an example of how he should not be allowed to conceive any report on Israel that bears any international credibility whatsoever. The so called "Martin Report" on Israel will now live as the penultimate example of the UN's perception of its own hegemonic inluence, and its ultimate failure as a policy.
So long Ian Martin. Stick a fork in him: he's done.

There is no doubt that Ian Martin is a disaster and a total liability for the UN. He screwed up for the UN in East Timor, Nepal and the so-called occupied territories. The sooner this guy is sanitised by the UN the better for the organisation. Let this jinxed of white rajah be laid to rest. Amen.

im leaving this comment here just because its the latest and has the best chance to be heard, but i dont have any comments on this particular subject. as an expatriate, and a young one at that, i wanted to see what is in store for my beloved family, people, and my country and i stumbled onto a couple of blogs but the message of degeneration under the communist rule seems to be uniform. mind you i am aware of the absolute subjectivity that you denounce the maoists by, i mean if you were trying to be constructive you would try to diagnose some problems that arent dependent upon ideology right? still you seem like an insightful person, so im giving you the benefit of doubt. i dont know, its just depressing to see such turmoil and unrest in a land where so many good memories, only too sweetend by the bad memories, took place. in a land where the most beautiful girl in the world, judged by both mind and body, lives. it just pains my heart to think that a future isn't there for them. just wish me luck with my studies, only way ill do anything for my country.
