The Useful UN

The UN's number two man, Mark Malloch Brown, said yesterday in an interview that it's not helpful to label Hezbollah as a "terrorist" group. After all, they... uh... I guess he never really backed up his statement.

Remember that this is the same Mark Brown, number two man at the UN, who insulted the people of the United States, claiming that media outlets had distorted the image of the UN to the US "heartland."

It seems a regular occurrence for the UN to show its uselessness: day after day we hear of the UN Committee on Human Rights having member nations like Cuba and China, and in turn condemning the US; the UN ignoring and unsuccessfully stopping the proliferation of nuclear weapons by rogue states; and the UN criticizing the US and Israel for any number of foolish reasons.

The UN has completely failed in its mandate to secure world peace, and be a bastion of justice among the nations. Where is the UN's statement when Iranian Resident Psycho Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the solution to the middle aest crisis is to destroy Israel - a member state of the UN?

I've said it before and I'll say it again - the UN is fast becoming comparable to the League of Nations in its ability to secure world peace.
