U.N. Help or Hinderance?

To all the Moonbats out there that continually tout the UN as THE body that should handle cases of international conflict; Here is another example of the not only ineffectiveness of UN "peacekeepers", but indeed, their criminal behaviour.

Were this an isolated case, I would be of a mind to just say, "there were some bad apples, prosecute them and move on".

But to date, I can't seem to find a single example where the UN forces were successful in doing what they were sent to do in any situation, namely keep the peace and/or provide succor to people suffering from disaster whether man-made or natural. And it seems that in almost every case, there have been furthur crimes committed against the people that those forces were sent to help, by the forces themselves.

And the most that Kofi Annon can say is (he is)"afraid there is clear evidence that acts of gross misconduct have taken place."?!?

No word on what steps would be taken to prevent furtur abuses, or prosecution of the offenders....

What else can you expect from an organization that names the worst offenders of human rights to sit on the watchdog committee on human rights? An organization that dealt with under the table oil deals with a dictator in a program that was supposedly to ease the suffering of the people under his rule?

It's time for the US to seriously consider leaving the UN. Let them move the headquarters to Brussels, where perfiditity and double-dealing graft are appreciated as an art form in international politics.

No, I'm not so naive as to believe that our own state department doesn't enage in expiedient measures in dealing with foreign powers, but at least they try to keep a semblence of forthrightness, and when caught in an obvious crime, are disgraced and prosecuted.

UPDATE: UN official "hopes to God that the UN is never called on again to administer such a massive program as the Oil for Food again. EVEN the UN leadership is starting to acknowledge it's incompetentcy!

The UN has become what it was supposed to stop. It's way past time to get out.
