Surprise! The UN is ineffective!

The United Nations, having supposedly been helping the world's peoples beat their swords into plows for the past sixty years, can't seem to do anything to prevent Israel and Hezbollah from blowing up each other's plows, and civilizations, for that matter.

Along with the fact that the UN helps totalitatarian governments like that of North Korea survive (via food aid), its utter ineffectiveness, reminiscent of the Articles of Confederation, should demonstrate adequately that it does not merit United States support.

Unfortunately, our federal government is busily conferring with other nations on things which it has no business interfering with - namely, the foreign policies of Israel, Lebanon, and Iran. (Iran overtly funds Hezbollah.)

When has the UN actually been of help when there has been a world conflict? The UN is a cute idea but totally useless.

The U.N will just never work. The reason why it doesn't work is because it tries to support both sides of a conflict. Also, if you ever watch Hotel Rowanda (based on a true story), you can just see the inefectiveness of the U.N. The U.N is a good idea, but is very unrealistic in todays world.

I have seen Hotel Rwanda, but I don't seem to really remember much about the UN's involvement, except for that they were there and they didn't do much at all.

I don't think that the reason the UN won't work is because they support both sides of the conflict, but rather because they advocate using "diplomacy" with groups/countries that are clearly just hungry for war and carnage.

the UN is a bad idea because it's a government of governments (with no power to stop, only to spend). It undermines all nations sovereignties. The only way it would be good is if it was a private symposium of individuals from various nations.

Private organizations focused on their self determined values always out perform governments seeking to cater to their constituencies.
