C'mon you guys
The U.N. isn't the best possible solution to world politics by any stretch of the imagination, yet its not the worst thing in the world either. I think that it could strengthen its stance on Iraq, as Iraq poses a significant threat to basically any world power, especially any European world power, as quite simply, it's easier to get a nuclear missile to Rome than it is to get one to New York. Andrew and Paul, you both have untenable positions. Andrew, you say that the U.N. is entirely in the right; is and should continue to be the end-all be-all of world politics and foreign policy. Paul, you say that the U.N. does nothing and might as well not exist for its lack of testicles visible to the naked eye. This is also wrong, as Gross cites. There's my bit, respond as you will, just don't lose perspective.
