UN = Useless Nations

Good god is the UN just a stinky turd or what? If you know anybody who still thinks the UN has any useful purpose other than fraud you must read todays WSJ piece by Hoover Institution fellow Victor Hanson titled The U.N.? Who Cares? Two of the most well written bits occur in this article that hit on the war on terror, who the enemy is along with why the UN is Useless. Taken from the beginning and end of Mr. Hanson article:
  • These are surreal times. Americans in Iraq are beheaded on videotape. Russian children are machine-gunned in their schools. The elderly in Israel continue to be blown apart on buses. No one--whether in Madrid, Istanbul, Riyadh, Bali, Tel Aviv or New York--is safe from the Islamic fascist, whose real enemy is modernism and Western-inspired freedom of the individual.
  • Deeds, not rhetoric, are all that matter, as the once unthinkable is now the possible. There is no intrinsic reason why the U.N. should be based in New York rather than in its more logical utopian home in Brussels or Geneva. There is no law chiseled in stone that says any fascist or dictatorial state deserves authorized membership by virtue of its hijacking of a government. There is no logic to why a France is on the Security Council, but a Japan or India is not. And there is no reason why a group of democratic nations, unapologetic about their values and resolute to protect freedom, cannot act collectively for the common good, entirely indifferent to Syria's censure or a Chinese veto.

Mr. Hansen said that deeds, not retoric is needed. That is why Kerry is better.

He has far more deeds than President Bush.

He has a deed for each of his 5 houses
for his gulfstream jet
for his SUVs (that he doesn't own, but his family does)
for his yacht


How can someone so rich be the poster child for the democrats?
