    Default Kerry's bright idea to trust the UN...

    This is a blatant example of why trusting the gutless UN to do anything is either incredibly naive, or an extreme example of appeasement.

    Hey what's 50,000 of your own people massacred and perhaps millions forced into relocation?

    'Not yet time' for sanctions against Sudan: UN envoy

    Mon Sep 6, 8:24 AM ET Add World - AFP to My Yahoo!
    OSLO (AFP) - The time has not yet come to impose international sanctions against the government of Sudan, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan (news - web sites)'s envoy Jan Pronk said during a visit to Oslo.

    "You should always keep sanctions in mind as a last instrument but it is not yet time to use the last instrument," Pronk told reporters Monday following talks with Norwegian Foreign Minister Jan Petersen.

    His comments came almost one week after the expiration of a UN ultimatum to Sudan, in which it gave Khartoum a 30-day deadline to disarm its proxy Arab militia, the Janjaweed, withdraw its regular forces from around the camps of the displaced in the western Darfur region, and ensure free access to the area for aid agencies.

    Peace talks in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, between Darfur's rebel groups and the Sudanese government were stalled on Monday over the issue of disarmament, officials from the African Union said.

    The U.N. is the most impotent organization ever created, no wait, the League of Nations was worse. So that makes the U.N. #2. Maybe a good shot of viagra would change them.

    Wrong. The UN is number 3. The NVFC is number one.

    The problem with the UN is it is at the whim of every despot, tyrant, dictator, thief, thug, and vermen (not saying we may or may not have fit into one or more of those categories at one point in time) and has no means of enforcing ANY of its sanctions unless those despots, thugs, tyrants, dictators, and vermen wish to "loan" them some troops to enforce them.

    Other than that it is useless. Divisions of the UN telling countries to restrict private ownership of firearms, telling countries how to run themselves, telling countries this and that.

    The UN had great ambitions and promise, but when one single country on the security council can do what it wishes to block any votes, this is wrong.

    See how Sudan is panning out? What about the rest of Africa? SO much hope and potential in that continent and they tear themselves apart. The UN cannot and really will not do anything to stop it.
