Can we trust the U.N. again?

I don't think so. The UN is a big disappointment. they are the biggerst bunch if anti-semites in the world. They only go along against everything the US and Israel do. It has lost its way in its true purpose. It was to find peaceful ways, but has gone along with tyranical dictators and anti-democracy govenments too long. This is a good editorial by Paul Greenberg on the subject.
There was a time when the United Nations' oil-for-food program was sold as the perfect compromise. The hungry victims of Saddam Hussein's dictatorship would get food in exchange for the oil that Saddam wasn't legally allowed to sell after his various violations of the peace began to pile up. Something had to be done, and there were those who thought economic sanctions would do the trick. Only now is the truth emerging about how the U.N. oil-for-food program became Saddam's oil-for-palaces program. And how various of the world's leading diplomats may have profited personally from it.
