Let's Revert to the League of Nations

It's comforting that the pre-UN, the League of Nations, could never even agree on a flag. This UN agrees on all the wrong things:

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that the slaughter in Darfur was triggered by global climate change and that more such conflicts may be on the horizon, in an article published Saturday......

"It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought," Ban said in the Washington daily.

When Darfur's land was rich, he said, black farmers welcomed Arab herders and shared their water, he said.
Right. Because we all know that Arabs get along with everyone when the weather is cool. Ban Ki-moon gets his digs in, but should have come right out and said it, "The world was in good shape until George Bush parched the Arabs." And the Bush-ruined-everything theme seems to be something the UN can agree on. I say shut them down and give the turtles back their bay.
