    Sounds like whining to me...and from an organization that delights in bashing the US!

    Most definately! They are too funny. No real reform and US isn't releasing money. Sounds alot like the Palestinians.

    The Palestininans at least TRY to do what they say they will...the UN on the other hand is so incompetent and ineffective that it really doesn't matter what they say.

    You're right. The Palestinians say they will not recognize Israel and don't. They will continue to fight and do.

    The UN says it will clean up their messes and bring more corruption and sex scandals. Exactly what have they done about the Oil for Food Scandal, to ensure it doesn't happen again?

    Wah, wah, wah. What has the UN ever done for us, that we should give them any gratitude at all?

    And, CSM bellies up to be the first to prove Malloch Brown's statements true.

    Anyone see anything in Bolton's "furious reaction" where he even so much as insinuates that Brown's statement was untrue?
