    Why is this quote not surprising? The UN has many reforms that will be necessary before it can be seen as a credible and viable organization.

    Many reforms? Burning it to the ground, and starting over with people capable of actual thought might remove the foul stench that permeates anything the UN is involved in.

    "...no state, however powerful, can protect itself on its own"???!!! What is this man smoking?

    And, now that the U.N. is busted six ways from Wednesday, it will deign to reform itself? Too little too late, I say. Flush 'em. Rapacious sociopaths and snarling ingrates from top to bottom. What do we need this bullshit for?

    Wonder whatever happened to all those Oil for Food Program allegations? I guess "reform" means a clean slate for all past criminal activities.

    Isn't THAT special.

    What a collection of assclowns! Of course, we've funded and enabled them even as they sink their fangs into our hand - what does that make US?

    You'll no doubt find "oil-for-food" under the same rug which hides serial rape and Russians spiriting WMD out of Iraq in the dead of night. Worthless, lying bastards - I marvel that we even ask the question, "What good are they?" A four-year-old could deduce the answer to that.

    Bah. More posturing and empty rhetoric. Want to reform the UN? Kick the bastards out of the country and let France support them.

    Uh, before we get around to reforms, let's uh pack the Security Council. Yeh, that's the ticket.
