I have expressed my feeling about the corruption in the Unitd Nations. Thousands dying in the Sudan and the UN fails to act. The oil for food scandal and Kofi Annon's pronouncement that the war in Iraq is illegal haVe all but made me want to pull out of the UN altogether. They view trouble and look the other way. We have countries who have horrible human rights violations and so they are appointed to the Human Rights council, They have some dedicated workers who do go into troubled areas to help distribute food to starving nations. Countries with differing agendas refuse to work with the US.

In the debates, Kerry indicated a need for a global test before he would take action against another nation that attacked us or is threatning to attack us. He would like the UN stamp of approval before defending the American people. Yesterday in a Washington Post article he further clarified the omnipotence of the UN in his view when he answered a question about combat deaths by saying,"If you mean dying in the course of the United Nations effort, yes, it is worth that. If you mean dying American troops unilaterally going in with some false presumption that we can affect the outcome, the answer is unequivocally no."
