Problems at the UN

I really don’t understand the affection so many people have for the United Nations. It has its uses — mainly in giving a floor for countries to spew words, as opposed to bullets, at each other.

But the UN human rights record is atrocious, with a bunch of gangsters using the floor to throw praise at Cuba. And their peace-keepers are notoriously ill-behaved, allowing violence to go on, raping women and, recently, taking food from starving kids.

We need to see the UN for what they are not what we wish they were.
