Lou Dobbs and Panel Debate Whether the United Nations is Still Effective and Relevant for Today - Video 9/22/09
Here is video of Lou Dobbs and a panel discussing whether or not the United Nations continues to be effective and relevant for today.
Those on the panel who believe the UN is no longer relevant cited the intense corruption present in the organization. They also argued that most UN "Peace-Keeping" operations have been "disasters." It is the United States that has acted to enforce most sanctions and to prevent most wars and conflicts.
Those defending the U.N. say it is necessary to have a world body that includes all nations in order to be able to build real security.
