The real goal

Posted by: Hammer / 12:56 PM

Let's be real clear about the real goal in these shenanigans:

UN member states are debating a draft document which the General Assembly had hoped would be adopted at next month's summit marking 60 years of the UN.

After six months of discussions, a 38-page draft document was presented to the General Assembly earlier this month.

Then, last week, the new US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, stepped in, asking for hundreds of changes.

This has nothing to do with reforming the United Nations and everything to do with discrediting an institution that the right ideologically opposes. The right wants to turn the UN into an international cognate to the current Democratic party: a powerless, lampoon-able organization to run against every 2 to 6 years. You couldn't watch the Globetrotters without the Washington Generals.
