The same UN that authorized an ECOWAS invasion of Mali, that quickly changed to a France / NATO invasion, and created what the UN now calls a “humanitarian crisis in Mali”, has just awarded the creator of this crisis, France’s President Francois Hollande, with the UNESCO Peace Prize for his “valuable contribution to peace and stability in Africa”.
So France and NATO’s arming and funding of Al Qaeda terrorists to overthrow Libya, which has resulted in the destabilization Africa, and has conveniently provided the excuse for neo colonial invasions of multiple African countries, this equals peace and stability in Africa????
France has also just sent Special Forces troops into Cameroon to find hostages in Nigeria… sure, things are looking really peaceful and stable in Africa.

PARIS (AP) — The remains of the Titanic, under water for almost a century, are to fall under United Nations protection.
UNESCO, the U.N. cultural and scientific agency, says the wreck of the famed ship will fall under a 2001 convention on protecting underwater cultural heritage on the 100th anniversary of its sinking.
The convention only applies to remains submerged for more than 100 years. The Titanic sank April 15, 1912 in international waters in the North Atlantic.
