    Hard to think there could be worse:

    About the last sentence of the article, :rolleyes: not so, this has been fact-driven. Interesting commentary after the list of wrongdoings!

    It is funny (not) how they list all the problems in the UN and then try to take the position that although there are problems, none of it is true....

    It's very hard on the Euros, even the Brits to admit the UN is a cesspool.

    Why do you think this is? I am not sure I understand the UN as of late. I also don't understand why this would be hard on the Euros (love that term) and the Brits. I am not really knowledgeable in this area. Thanks.

    I suppose it has to do with two major wars about 20 years apart. After the 2nd they became married to the idea of 'no more war' and 'international collective bargaining', even when it is proven not to be working.

    EU3 + Iran, not working. Their solution? Give Iran a light water reactor? Thinking must be something along the lines of, 'If we prove we're nice and like them, they'll join the family of nations.... :rolleyes:

    One would think they would recognize that "appeasement" word by now.
