Designed to help the world stay at peace and to aid those countries in need the idea of the United Nations has sort of worked over the years… well, not really. When the most powerful countries can, and do, force the UN to do things their way the idea of an independent force for good sort of falls by the wayside. Of course, the UN gets all of it’s funding from the countries it is supposed to unite, but the majority of the funding comes from you know who. As such, when another country has an issue with an ally of our country, we are forced to support the country not in alliance with our beliefs. Oh well, it was a nice try.
How to celebrate – Look for where the UN has done a good job. (Good luck finding one) Find out which countries belong to the UN. Find out who has veto power in the UN.
