Wake Up And Smell The Kofi

Have you been keeping an eye on what's been going on at the United Nations as of late? Seriously--have you checked it out? If not, you need to. The implications of the rampant corruption being exposed there are, quite literally, mind-boggling.

William F. Buckley has an interesting column today on the confusing departure of U.N. ambassador Jack Danforth after only four months on the job. Though Danforth cites family reasons for leaving, Buckley points out that the complete moral bankruptcy of the U.N. had to play a part in his thinking.

Danforth was quoted earlier this week, after the General Assembly attempted to cut off a motion criticizing the horrific human rights violations in Sudan, as saying "One wonders about the utility of the General Assembly on days like this. One wonders, if there can't be a clear and direct statement on matters of basic principle, why have this building [in New York City]? What is it all about?"

Keep in mind he actually said that after he had already written his resignation letter to President Bush.

I keep hoping for the coup de grace that will finally either end the U.N., or end the United States' involvement in it. One can only pray that the multiple investigations of Anan & Company's regnant depravity will finally do the trick.
