U.N. effectiveness depends on U.S.
To the editor:
When people talk of the United Nations organization, they seem to imply that it is some kind of foreign or alien entity which is at best indifferent to our concerns or even antagonistic to us. We helped organize the United Nations, and we are very much a part of it. The United Nations cannot succeed unless we want it to succeed. One of the complaints against the United Nations is that it is ineffective, but if it is, then it may be because the United States has not been supportive enough.
Some jingoist group used to put up billboards that demanded we get out of the United Nations. In light of our situation in Iraq, it is time that we start to think globally instead of provincially.
