MEGADETH's DAVE MUSTAINE On 'Blue Helmets In Haiti'

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"I just saw on BBC that numerous Sri Lankan soldiers that are UN peacekeepers in Haiti are under investigation for sexual abuses against the women and children of Haiti.

"No shit?

"[Quoting the lyrics to the MEGADETH song 'United Abominations']

"Within striking distance from Ground Zero sits a smoldering
International cauldron, the 'United Abominations' as it were
Born to prevent wars, it froze in the face of disaster and
Stood silent while terrorization took hostage the world
In a mire of hypocrisy, the UN ignores sex crimes by its
'blue helmets,' and enables terrorism; so that in the end it's failed.

"And the UN is where our so-called 'friends' get to stab us
In the back, and we pay 22% of their tab to host our enemies
Here at home. Ambassadors from countries, otherwise known
As a catastrophe, enjoy diplomatic immunity living in
Manhattan, while their children are turned into prostitutes
It's a complete and utter disgrace, a blot on the face of
Humanity, and they get away with it."
