UN approves first ever global arms trade treaty

«"The agreement of the arms trade treaty sends a clear message to arms dealers who supply warlords and dictators that their time is up," said Anna Macdonald of the global development group Oxfam.
"They will no longer be able to operate and arm themselves with impunity. The world will be watching and will hold them accountable."
Amnesty International's Frank Jannuzi said the NRA, which claimed credit last year for persuading the United States to block the treaty in July 2012, had failed this time.»
20 years, they say, wrangling about this - and suddenly a breakthrough, simultaneously isolating three of US' 'prime' targets - such an unexpected coincidence! And NGOs preening, "Look what we can do!"
This is nothing but breathless hypocrisy; the text was obviously constructed such that Syria, Iran and N.Korea were made to feel that they had no other option but to vote against it, and Russia (amongst others) abstained. Funny, that Syria, Iran and N.Korea are US-declared 'enemies,' N.Korea having already long ago been smashed:
“After destroying North Korea’s 78 cities and thousands of her villages, and killing countless numbers of her civilians, [General] LeMay remarked, “Over a period of three years or so we killed off – what – twenty percent of the population.” It is now believed that the population north of the imposed 38th Parallel lost nearly a third its population of 8 – 9 million people during the 37-month long “hot” war, 1950 – 1953, perhaps an unprecedented percentage of mortality suffered by one nation due to the belligerance [sic] of another.” (quoted in Richard Rhodes, “The General and World War III,” The New Yorker, June 19, 1995, p. 53.)
N.Korea is still under US-pressure; some say their latest threats are actually a call for direct negotiations - to get that pressure *off* them.
Iran suffered a violent, anti-democratic US/UK coup in 1953, since the Iranians took their country back in 1979, the US has mercilessly pursued them. The US(NATO) plus Arab League is now sponsoring alien invaders to infiltrate and attack Syria, and not so long ago F+UK/NATO smashed Libya. Some NGOs 'help' in these smashings; unless so-called responsible entities actively oppose crimes-in-progress, they make themselves accessories.
Vis-à-vis Iraq, the UN did nothing +ve, the then UN-Sec-Gen admitted that the US/UK/Aus attack was illegal - and yet now, the UN and various NGOs are celebrating a treaty which may, one day, do something against the dirty, *murdering* arms business, which the US leads, and Germany, say, supplies nuclear-capable submarines to Israel - the same Israel that has stolen most of pre-UNGA181 Palestine = ethnic cleansing by genocidal methods, seemingly UN-approved - or at least, *proven* by the bloody, 65+ year long status quo, UN-tolerated.
The situation is much worse than this 'quickie' describes; we are being 'smothered' in vast lie-clouds, while the <1% consolidates its control over the world, syphoning ever more of our, we (= 99%+) the people's $s into their already obscenely rich pockets, and allowing the ruining of our once jewel-like planet's comfortable life-supporting ecosphere.
