The UN is a corrupt, money grubbing organization that legitimizes leaders like Mugabe of Zimbabwe and treats them as equals.

When the UN "acts", a few UN folks get rich and a whole bunch of people die. Let's compare the UN body count in Rwanda with the US body count in Iraq.

You guys love body counts.

Damn, you good.

The UN is a tool of our making, and when we began to push our weight around without concern for treating other nations with common courtesy and respect we openned the field of competition for control up. Rather than correct the problem, we blamed the UN and started a smear campaign agains its virtues. All because we devalued the role of competent career diplomats. Inserting Bolton into that environment is pure ignorance, and cheering him as our best UN Ambassador to date, without any justification or examination of his record, which would necessarily be pretty sparse, is absurd. Jaybaugh, at least try to say something meaningful now and then, please! Jim
Your typical, Blame America First, diatribe is hardly what I would call "meaningful!"

That is typical of the drive-by media! As soon as they are sure they have destroyed someone, they start w/ the eulogies.
