More Turtle Bay twittiness:
U.N. Wants NYC Cops for Peacekeeping

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asked New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday whether some of the city’s police officers could be deployed with U.N. peacekeeping missions.
Recruiting police for the U.N.’s 16 peacekeeping missions around the globe has been historically challenging.

“New York City has one of the most diversified police forces around and I think the secretary-general would like to explore possibilities,” U.N. deputy spokeswoman Marie Okabe said before the meeting. “Getting police to join peacekeeping operations is one of the high priorities for the U.N.”

Yo, Banni? Why don’t you get some of those British bobbies instead? See, NYPD, if they even think a perp’s threatening them, are gonna open fire on the guy, whereas your “peacekeepers” are obliged to sit around with empty clips and just watch the bad guys pull their shit.

Bloomberg left the meeting without speaking to reporters. Stu Loeser, the mayor’s spokesman, said his office had no comment.

That’s a diplomatic way of saying, “you’re a tool, Ki-moon.”
