    Wold is burning and irredeemably most dangerous juncture never seen in mankind history before. Countries such as Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan hundreds killing daily basis and mostly women and children due to suicide attacks, car bombs and drone attacks etc., etc.. There is country law unto themselves always threatening other countries with war with brute force. Middle east is a powder keg. And this funny idiotic fool call UNSG looking at simple provincial election of tiny country, which mostly peaceful. Will this guy ever grow up to become real human being?
