    In the past year I have read many attacks on the United Nations--quite a few, but by no means all, in the pages of this newspaper.
    That pains me, because I have served the U.N. all my life.
    ......................................................................
    The UN could be an extremely good organisation, however half the people in the top jobs have been there for generations and cover each others backs.Get rid of the old boys club at the top and get some do'ers not talkers in at the top.Then we'll have a true United Nations.

    I may be a bit snarky, but I do believe it's that the UN has served Kofi his whole life!

    Thats what i mean.Thank him very much, give him a watch and a golden handshake then show him the door.Lets get some action.The foundations are there for a highly efficient organisation.Just needs someone fresh to guide it in the right direction.

    Well on the beginning we agree, later not so much so. Personally I believe the whole organization is corrupt to the core. But heh, that's just me.

    If it's so damn important, why is he letting it turn into a big shit pile and refusing to hang the crooks? We shall see if he strips Sevan of his diplomatic immunity.
