Well-said by Mr. Thompson. Despite the forum's direct policy against political discussions, I think this merits posting.
The United Nations has been a massive failure and in some places has encouraged genocide. Thompson isn't just throwing accusations around blindly. Read a book by Dore Gold called "Tower of Babel" - it documents the atrocious failures of that organization since the beginning. Granted, it doesn't talk about the quiet successes, but it undermines just about every major undertaking... including Kofi Annan's bribery by Saddam Hussein under the "Oil for Food" campaign.
