The U.N. will shortly celebrate its 60th birthday and apparently George Bush, Condi Rice and others have not yet RSVP'd.
As Capt Ed notes:
"The UN has collapsed into a crime family, where money and personnel intended to assist the most vulnerable instead work to the support of the most evil tyrants, where forces intended on protecting the innocent abandon them to enemies and sexually assault the female survivors, and where the various dictatorships and kleptocracies who pursue slavery and terrorism run committees that focus their ire on Western nations for not putting even more resources at their disposal to continue these travesties. Its management has proven itself above accountability and its membership has encouraged all of it for a chance to handicap the Western democracies in their bid to spread true freedom and liberty across the globe.
What's there to celebrate?"
JB here: Capt Ed has exactly, in my humble opinion, captured the true nature of the current incarnation of the U.N. To use a phrase from Jay Tea of Wizbangblog.com; you might call the U.N. "a cornucopia of scummery."
