    Being the open-minded individual that I am, I'd love to read a link from a credible source that gives creedence to your statement. If you'd be so kind, link a reputable source that says the UN is exactly what you claim it is - and yes, I'll even accept wikipedia, despite it not being a reputable source.

    Following in the wake of the failed League of Nations (1919–1946) (which the United States never joined) the United Nations was established in 1945 to maintain international peace and promote cooperation in solving international economic, social and humanitarian problems.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Thanks, Boo! Now if you can help MrVich with a source backing up his claim, i'm sure he'd be much obliged.

    The purpose of the UN was to prevent another World War, and to maintain peace through diplomacy. It was never intended to be the behemoth it is today.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This statement is a far cry from your first statement, which labelled the UN as a "cesspool". You also claimed my post was wrong, and that I apparently have no knowledge of the functions and goals the organization. Given that there is already a post on this thread containing a link that supports my position, I assume you can provide one in support of your own, yes?

    And just so we are clear, I want a link supporting your argument from the bottom of page one, and followed by my own reply at the top of page two, like I originally asked for.

    Listen the UN publishes this report for every member country every 4 years and anything that has an impact on human rights in any country is in the report. The US has had the ghost of Gitmo in the report, plus police abuse of prisoners and so on and so on. Same goes for the UK, Denmark, Spain and every other democratic country that is a member of the UN. Like it or not, just because we are democracy does not mean we do not abuse or attempt to abuse basic human rights on an almost daily basis.
    Yeah, the UN has a great record.

    Iraq in general post Gulf War 1. How many useless resolutions?

    Oil for Food program... had this massive heap of corruption not been in place, war might have been prevented.

    Enviro Wing of the UN. Now undertaking a restructuring...wonder why? Couldn't be their promotion of fraudulent enviro reports.

    Yeah, the UN is just a Boogie Man...

    Since we pay most of the bills it would seem he is right and you are dead wrong.

    The UN is a cesspool.

    Corruption doesn't get any bigger then the Oil-for Food frenzy in dollar terms, or in terms of preventing war. Instead of preventing war, they aided and abetted the creation of another one by dirty dealing with a despot. It stunk right up to Kofi Annan, as his son make a nice chunk of profit from the **** pit.

    And to think... nobody said peep... for the years it was happening.

    Is that cessy enough?
