Denial

This whole thing is just so weird…though the parallels with our own government (believing their own fantasies while innocent people die) are striking.
What’s worrisome and perhaps telling, is the line "…many say a United Nations official has no right to criticize a member state…".  I know of employees for the UN that verify this situation.  If we ever wonder why the UN can’t achieve its objectives, we need only to look at that statement.  Member nations will play with the UN only until it’s inconvenient for them, then they will criticize the UN for it’s inability to function…largely because the member nations do not support it.  What a vicious cycle…
