    The UN's behavior in the Congo is beyond disgusting. Heads must roll; including the UN administrators in NY. This is a perfect case for the UN and the EU's beloved International Court of Justice. Televise these trials worldwide on the BBC and CNN. When these people are convicted, the key should be thrown away.

    Nothing will happen. Europe doesn't have a problem with the backwards people of the Congo. If they were 'brighter' and more European, it would be different. Did you hear any great shakes when the French were mowing them down in the Ivory Coast, without UN approval?
