Clear Comment. Not sure where it gets us. But clear.
From The Age's letters page today:
Is the UN really up to the job?
With only 6 per cent of the Australian population in agreement with the war on Iraq and the rest going with the mantra of "only if sanctioned by the UN" (The Age, 18/1), who is analysing the performance of the UN - particularly since Kofi Annan has been secretary-general?
We have seen the UN's poor performance during the wars in the former Yugoslavia to the point where the European Union proposed acting as the unifying force, and the scuttling of the previous arms inspections in Iraq. And it is frustration with the UN that has led the US and Britain to consider acting alone.
