P.J. O'Rourke said it best. "The UN was a great place until all the foreigners found out about it." ;-)

the First Chapter of "CEO of the Sofa" is a great take on the UN. He talks about how they have a big statue of a gun with it's barrel tied in a knot. He said it must represent all of the UN's botched Peace Keeping Missions.

French Companies were smuggling Missle & Plane Parts to Iraq. Russia was selling night goggles and GPS Jammers and sneeking them in with UN "Humanitarian Care Packages." I wonder if Germany was giving them anything?

The problem is there isn't enough free enterprise in the U.N. Let's just make it a big public services contract and sell it to the highest bidder. Maybe Steven Bechtel could be Secretary General.

Or maybe it's possible that the U.N. has purposes other than being the international policy arm of the United States.
