    The following article completely outlines the role of the United Nations and its function in the modern world. It is interesting to see why we need to be associated with this organization which in violation of international law.

    I think there are two main problems with the UN that i see at this point.

    1)they allow rogue states such as Syria, Iran, North Korea, etc in the UN. Not to mention they put China as one of the permanent members of the security council. If they want an international organization dedicated to peace, they need an organization dedicated to freedom. the UN does not. quite the opposite. much of the time they support oppressive states like they did in Iraq.

    2)The UN is not accountable to the people of the world. No one votes who represents them. There is no accountability to the people if there is corruption in the UN. They simply take care of each other and protect them in their power.

    The words "paper tiger" make them look good. Good idea for a place for countries to express thier opinions. Lousy idea for accomplishing anything but chaos.

    Why is it a good forum for world nations to express their opinions when the world has instantaneous ability to have a voice on satelite television coverage (Al-Jazerra), major newspapers on the internet and many other forums? All these immediate nation opinions dissemination negating the need for a group of UN ambassadors talking in an auditorium and with the net effect of nothing but self-serving propoganda.

    They can do with thier time what they wish. The conversation occurs publicly and avoids the spin of the media. If something postive happens, fine---if not, no big loss. It at least gives peaceful people a method to reslove issues .

    1) The UN member's wish time is being well compensated mainly by American tax dollars.

    2) What today comes as a positive from the United Nations?

    3) Do you consider all the UN member nations as peaceful people?

    4) What issues do the UN member nations exactly resolve?

    Actually, at this point, none. It was a simple and friendly request to read the article for myself since you made mention of it. Why do you present the requested information in such an advesarial manner?
