Why send post-war help with so much opposition to U.S.?


http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | The word out of the State Department is that Colin Powell and his troops are feverishly working to get a new U.N. resolution to get the U.N. involved in postwar Iraq. All I can say is, good luck. Why? Because the U.N. is filled with countries who simply hate America. And I got to tell you something else. Not only do they hate America. They would love to see nothing more than America fail in Iraq.

France, they've got their reasons. They had lucrative financial deals with Saddam Hussein and the United States' victory cost them billions and billions of dollars. And, of course, then there was Syria, a fellow Baathist regime who sat in judgment of America on the United Nations Security Council. Do you think they want us to succeed? And what about Libya, why, that famous arbiter of human rights who sits as a chairman of the U.N. Human Rights Council? Oh, but by the way, they just admitted to blowing up hundreds of civilians on a commercial airplane.

And let's ask a bigger question. Why do we really want the United Nations to get involved, when they have such a lousy track record? Did they stop a million deaths in Rwanda in the '90s? Did they stop two million deaths in the Sudan in the '90s? Did they stop the bloodshed in Bosnia? The answer is no, no and no.

How did they do this past fall? I'm telling you, it was a three-ring circus in the United Nations. They have proven themselves to be obsolete and out of date. And the only question is, why should the United States drag itself down even more by associating itself with an international body that no longer represents democratic values and no longer can succeed on the world stage?
