              The UN Cesspool
Joshua Muravchik of the American Enterprise Institute examines the relationship of the US and the UN, and clearly demonstrates that
A world left to the UN as supreme arbiter would not be the world of law of Kofi Annan's incantation. It would be the opposite: a world of lawlessness. Nor would a United States that had been induced to yield to the superior majesty of the UN be replaced by an equivalent force for good, and certainly not by the UN itself. Instead, the peace we have known since 1945 would crumble.

True, no UN rule or regime could stay America from defending its own territory, and citizenry. But numerous weaker nations whose security America has linked to its own would pay dearly for the wistful dream of a parliament of man, a dream that the sordid reality of the UN has turned into a mockery. And for this, in the end, America would surely suffer as well.
Reading this article it is stunning that a candidate for President of the US would be so willing to place any trust in this "squalid circus", in the words of Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
