Quote of the Day

"If the U.N. seems corrupt, slow and ineffective, that is because it reflects the state of international relations, not because of the institution itself. It seems ironic that we attack an institution that operates under the goals of peace and human dignity, associating it with the corrupt leadership of the warring nations themselves. Essentially, by attacking the U.N., we are blaming the peacemakers for perpetrating wars...

...For the rest of, we had better learn to live with the world, because it is here with us, until we blow it up."
--AM New York columnist Jordan Schneider, defending the U.N. during this heated General Assembly session.
