The United Nations scoffed on Friday at claims by a judge in Lubbock County, Texas, that U.N. troops could invade the southern U.S. state to settle a possible civil war, which the judge warned could be sparked if Obama is re-elected in November.

"It's absolutely ridiculous," said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's spokesman, Martin Nesirky, when asked if the United Nations had any plans to invade Texas.

He later added: "No one, not even the United Nations, would ever mess with Texas."

He was responding to comments from Tom Head, a county judge in Lubbock who told a local Fox News station on Monday that taxes needed to be raised so the county could prepare for contingencies if Obama was re-elected for a second term.

"He (Obama) is going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N. What's going to happen when that happens? I'm thinking worst case scenario -- civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe," Head said.

"What's going happen ... if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops, I don't want them in Lubbock County. I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carriers and say 'You're not coming in here,'" he said.

And Head told Fox News that he has the backing of his local sheriff. "I've already asked him 'Are you going to back me?' and he said 'Yeah I'll back you.'"

I think it's pretty safe to say that the UN would have zero interest in getting involved in any civil unrest in America! And I think the world knows that fruitbats like that guy aren't representative of Americans generally ;)

^ Yeah -- not too likely:

The U.S. has been the largest financial supporter of the U.N. since the organization’s founding in 1945. The U.S. is currently assessed 22 percent of the U.N. regular budget and more than 27 percent of the U.N. peacekeeping budget.

And the US has veto powers as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, so it could only happen if the US approved or abstained from voting. Obviously that would never happen for political reasons and even if the US were to take any action it would use its own troops rather than going through the UN.

It's just nonsensical political posturing targeted at moron voters. Anybody swayed by such rhetoric should be sterilised.

Really wish the writer (and readers) would realize that means invading the U.S., you cannot just say "oh we don't want to invade YOU, just ONE little area of your country lol
