More UN Malfeasance

Apparently, to the UN, genocide is a "side issue". Racial cleansing continues in the Sudan, but the UN does nothing. Why? Maybe because Sudan is on the Human Rights Commission!

The fundamental flaw of the UN is that there are no restrictions on membership. Any bunch of thugs can hijack a country and be accepted without reservation. While I understand that this was the intention (after all, the Soviet Union under Stalin was a charter member) the values and goals of democracies differ from those of countries like the Sudan. Maybe its time for a more exclusive international organization.
