If you understand this, then you will have a good understanding of the relevance of the UN in the post 9/11 world. Read the whole article, and weep if you have hope in the UN. On the other hand, if you are a Bible believer rejoice that Babylon is fallen.

OpinionJournal - Extra: "As a matter of civic education, everyone should have to read a U.N. Security Council resolution. Take number 1511 on Iraq, and begin with the obligatory last sentence 'DECIDES to remain seized of the matter.' The line is both arresting and baffling, and conjures an image of scores of goggle-eyed diplomats caught in a cataleptic fit as a result of wrestling with a knotty foreign policy problem. And it means nothing. Could one imagine the council declaring that it 'DECIDES this is the last time it will debate this tiresome issue'? Very few problems in international relations disappear, and neither, presumably, will the council and its deliberations."
