Here's the money graph of the day from Mark Steyn:
It's a good basic axiom that if you take a quart of ice-cream and a quart of dog faeces and mix 'em together the result will taste more like the latter than the former. That's the problem with the UN. If you make the free nations and the thug states members of the same club, the danger isn't that they'll meet each other half-way but that the free world winds up going three-quarters, seven-eighths of the way.And don't miss this one too:
And, of course, corrupt organisations rarely stop at just one kind. If you don't want to bulk up your pension by skimming the Oil-for-Food programme, don't worry, whatever your bag, the UN can find somewhere that suits - in West Africa, it's Sex-for-Food, with aid workers demanding sexual services from locals as young as four; in Cambodia, it's drug dealing; in Kenya, it's the refugee extortion racket; in the Balkans, sex slaves.Isn't the U.N. a lovely organization? Good Golly.
Don't forget folks, there's lots of people on the other side of the aisle who thinks a utopian peaceful world is obtainable only through the U.N. It's called 'grandiose delusions'.
Now respect Mark Steyn and read his piece, top to bottom.
