Is there any sane person who could possibly take the UN seriously anymore? Consider this and this for example.
And, isn't it interesting that the Nobel Prize has evolved into a forum for legitimizing anti-US, anti-Israel harangues, as well as a mouthpiece for the appeasers and enablers of terror. This "noble" committee shares these important duties with certain member states of a completely worthless international body.
It is times like this that I think we desperately need a JRR Tolkien or a CSLewis more than ever (which is why their books have had a resurgence). But instead, we are presented with pathetic nothings like Harold Pinter and Mohamed ElBaradei , both of whom are touted as the new symbols of all that is right and good.
[A brief pause while the echoes of hysterical laughter fade]
But, seriously, Iowahawk and Cox and Forkum have captured the true relevance and spirit of the UN; while Scott Ott has the most realistic take on the Nobel situation.
UPDATE: More evidence (if you needed it) on how despicable the UN has become. (Hat tip: The Corner)
