In Reply to: the UN is dead posted by Matt on Sunday, March 30, 2003 at 17:42:30 :
The UN is not dead but it is in crisis. The actions of the US, along with its lap dogs Australia and the UK, have shown that the interests of the few now outway the interests of the many. Enlightened humanism has been beaten in submission by fanatical unilateralism. Welcome to the new Dark Age.
If the nations of the world are to unite in the cause of peace and if there is to be some international safeguard against wars of aggression, then the UN must regain control of the current situation and pull the US back into line. If it does not achieve this, then yes, I would have to say it will have doomed itself to irrelevance.
