Why do we let the UN into other nations business? They should have no duty in international security.
They are corrupt and inefficient (Dallaire, Rwanda 1994). After 10 Belgian soldiers are killed, the Belgians sound retreat and compromise many other soldiers in the area. They failed to realize there is no reward without a risk. Thousands of Tutsis were killed right infront of UN peacekeepers WHO DID NOTHING! Why? They weren’t mandated to! There is no justice. Obviously protocol is more important to them than human lives.
UN Representatives are just appointed and not elected. Therefore it is safe to conclude that they will do everything in their power to ensure that they can make their bosses happy. In otherwords, they fail to complete the task at hand before completing the interests of their respective governments. Example: An American UN delegate would lobby to protect Saudi Arabia before any other OPEC country because of the oil incentive. Yet, we know that Saudi Arabia is a country run on substandard human rights and abusive policies. Another example is China. The Falun Gong and Christians (just to name a few) are being persecuted. The UN does little, if nothing to protect these minorities. The UN has failed to protect the population of it’s members.
Canada is the most active peacekeeping force. Yet, we don’t have nearly as much funding towards projects as the United States do or any other of the 5 veto seats do. Once again, if a smaller player in the game such as Canada contributes this much, it just goes to show how much the UN organization has failed. The little players are doing the jobs of the bigger countries, yet we don’t even recieve recognition?

and I’m a tad worried.)
