New U.N. Accusations

In his new book, The U.N. Exposed: How the United Nations Sabotages America's Security and Fails the World, Fox News reporter Eric Shawn alleges that the agency is completely corrupt and no friend to America. He discusses how Sadam Hussein bribed countries like Russia, China and France in exchange for veto votes over the use of force prior to the Iraq War (further evidence that the French are no allies of ours), which ultimately lead to the allied invasion, and how several U.N. programs, such as the "Oil for Food" fiasco are ripe with corruption and outright smuggling.

Cuba now has a seat on the Human Rights Council. Iraq was recently elected to Vice Chair of the disarmament committee, which deals with disarmament and international security. U.N. Diplomats are famous for their piles of unpaid parking tickets, totaling some $10 million dollars by some estimates, which sparked an all out war lead by Mayor Rudi Giuliani in 1997. Now we are stuck waiting for the U.N. to take some type of action against Iran for pursuing nuclear weapons, which won't happen since both Russia and China, who have veto powers, recently signed major trade deals with Iran, for arms and oil, respectively.

And this is an agency that is supposed to lead the world into the new century?
