"Every day at the U.N., on every side, we are assailed because we are a democracy. In the U.N. today there are in the range of several dozen democracies left; totalitarian regimes and assorted ancient and modern despotisms make up all the rest. Nothing so unites these nations as the conviction that their success ultimately depends on our failure. Most of the new states have ended up as enemies of freedom."
~ Daniel Patrick Moynihan, September 1976 I want to take you, dear readers, on a trip back in time. A more innocent time perhaps when mankind's yearnings for redemptive change seemed possible. In the heart of New York a Palace for Peace was built that still stands today. Its main tower is narrow and lean seemingly stretching with almost sinewy might as if soaring to the heavens for inspiration. The curves and planes of it's smaller sister building's design seek to reflect the transcendental unity of our common humanity. On a wall at the entrance to this Palace are engraved the immortal words of the ancient Hebrew prophet Isaiah that "...swords shall be turned into plowshares, and nation shall not make war against nation anymore."
This week this special place, once thought to be man's last best hope, was defiled by the most obscene verbal excrement. Sadly, few were surprised. For this Palace, that once glistened for what now seems no more than one brief shining moment, continues its decades-long run as the venue for what Daniel Patrick Moynihan called "brutal buffoonery". This place is the United Nations. And its time may have run out.

I trust some FReeper will be able to post an appropriate picture!
Why would anyone expect anything less from a band of 3rd world tyrants, despots, kings, and incompetents who milk the system for fun and profit. This is an organization that often provides legal footing between decent representatives with a sense of civility and brutal murdering tyrants little better than organized criminals.
We need to send the UN to China. I bet these tinhorn despots would show a lot more respect to the host nation, or would only open their mouth to eat prison rice.
Hey, maybe we should try that? -lo
Great article! Lets all wake up.
At this point, if an '08 presidential candidate vowed to move the UN out of the US, I would seriously think about giving him/her my vote.
What an analogy! It's perfect.
Another good one was cartoonist (now deceased) Jeff McNelly's picture of the long, curved bench at the UN where the delegates sit behind signs stating naming countries. One sign read "Bang The Dish".
