The article discusses that the United Nations (U.N.) one sided attempt to addresses the existing problems of the world put a question-mark on the effectiveness of the very organization. The article describes numerous examples during which the United Nation failed to solve the crisis. In many cases the United Nations had targeted the interest of the Soviet Union and at the same time supported the United States policy which had targeted to defame the Soviet Union's interest. Thus, the Soviet Union organized a drive to paralyze the operation of the United Nations by abolishing the office of Secretary General. But the United States opined the view that the United Nations is the chief instrumentality existing in the world to deter aggression. The United States considered the U.N. a substantial contribution not only to world peace but also towards American security. And finally the Soviet Union failed on all fronts in its attempt to bring down and abolish in the office of Secretary General of the United Nation.
