    from the article
    When George W. Bush appeared before the U.N. in September 2002 and demanded that it hold Iraq accountable for violating the U.N.'s own resolutions and when he spoke of Saddam Hussein's violations of human rights, he was using the vocabulary provided by Eleanor Roosevelt in the service of Franklin Roosevelt's purpose.
    When it comes to israel and the Palestinians why not apply he same logic?

    The alternative is? It's easy to criticise and much justification to do so, come up with a viable alternative.

    "U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan has unhelpfully criticized the military assault on terrorists in Fallujah as "illegal." U.N. peacekeeping forces in Africa and elsewhere have committed sexual assaults on a vast scale. U.N. officials dispatched to aid victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami have been seeking first-class hotel lodgings, while American military forces and relief organizations from the United States, Australia, Japan and many other countries have been working long hours to help those in need."

    So should a corrupt, inept, impotent, and expensive organization be maintained as a debating club for unemployed diplomatic types just because it is unique?
    Old age and treachery, is an acceptable response to overwelming youth and skill
