The Left on Iraq and the UN

"Two months before the October resolution, the US's chosen instrument for selling the Governing Council, UN Special Envoy Vieira de Mello, was blown up in his office in Baghdad by persons with a realistic assessment of the function of the UN. Please, my friends, no more earnest calls for "a UN role", at least not until the body is radically reconstituted along genuinely democratic lines."


"Realistic assessment", charming.
