    boy that u.n. is a heavy hitter. they came to the conclusion that they might be thinking about maybe having some deep (not too deep) reservations about north korea blowing up that south korean ship killing 41. that's a searing decree.... searing. like a steer branding on the loins of the world's sunburned ass.

    Is the UN doing enough about what? North Korea? What can they do outside of sanctions?

    They have no army. The sanctions would only hurt the people who are already starving in the country and not the people who are in charge. All they can do is try to broker a peace agreement between all sides and try to help the citizens of the country.

    who likes the u.n.?

    ---

    The people they have kept from dying in some civilian and military conflicts, the people who have gotten basic medical care and have lived to tell about it, the people who have not starved to death because of UN aid, the people....


    The Un is a flawed institution. So is the US Army.

    The United Nations is the worst use of money, time, and energy that mankind has ever come up with. It is a den of thieves, liars, and con artists who do nothing to promote peace and harmony in the world. They should tear the building down and construct a park where it now stands so at least the land it is on would get some sort of reasonable use. Everybody that is in the building should be immediately sent back home on the next available flight and told to stay there.

    The US out of the UN, and the UN out of the US. It's utterly useless.

    they do feed people and are there for refugees, and they do tremendous good, it's just that perhaps they are in the wrong business of political diplomacy. is it cost efficient anymore... is it corrupt as some suggest.? what about the overall vibe of the place. standing ovations for al-khadafi, chavez and ahmadinijad, they are not good people. what about that? as our friend bebe netyanyahu "have you no decency?" do they show decency ? what is the point ?

    Is the UN perfect?

    Far from it...it is still a political body. However, what alternative do you have for resolving international issues. By the way, it was the UN that stopped N Korea in the first place

    THE UN IS WORTHLESS.

    Worse it is a bad force in the world. It just put Iran on the Woman's rights commission. Even as they prepare to stone a woman to death for alleged Adultery. It is nothing but a tool to legitimize all kinds of despotic regimes around the world and Bash the US and Israel.

    When has the UN ever resolved a international Issue? I am not being a dick. I really want to know what international Issue you think the UN has ever solved.
