I'm trying to think of something the United Nations has ever accomplished that didn't require massive assistance (either monetary or military and too often both) from the United States. And darn it, I can't think of a thing.

Of course, that doesn't keep the Kofi Annan or any of the U.N.'s other mouth breathers from claiming sole credit even if the UN is late coming in (as they were with the December 26 tsunami because they had problems getting reservations at 5-star hotels) or didn't do anything at all (like the way they enforced all of the resolutions they'd passed threatening Saddam's Iraq if he didn't comply with the last resolution they'd passed threatening . . .).

New day, no difference. The U.N. has repeatedly told Iran, Please don't play with nuclear weapons programs 'cause it will upset us and we'll have to smite you with meaningless resolutions, but only if it's okay with your trading partners Russia and China.

Kofi, in no uncertain terms, then explained to the U.S. and Great Britain the genius behind this latest ploy that only makes it appear that the U.N. is utterly useless.

"Action or inaction will have a great impact on future cases and on our efforts to promote nuclear non-proliferation," Annan said. A deadlock on Iran, he said, could embolden North Korea and future North Koreas.
Well, that sure clears things up. I feel so much better.


Then again, the U.N. really doesn't have time to worry about Iran right now. It's having more problems than it can handle with Haiti.

UNITED NATIONS, June 29 -- United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan asked the United States this week to consider sending troops to Haiti to support a U.N. peacekeeping mission beset by mounting armed challenges to its authority, according to senior U.N. officials.
What? Challenging the U.N.'s authority?

Officials said that similar requests are being considered for other countries, including Canada and France. "We want scarier troops," one senior U.N. official said.

The French?

But yeah. Ask your good buddy Jacques, Kofi.

We're a little busy right now.
