UN Ruminations

Burnham, James
September 1977
National Review;9/2/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 34, p987
The article presents the author's opinions regarding the role of the United Nations (UN) in global politics. The UN has become a dynamic factor in the global political equation. In several operations that were launched by the UN, the U.S. and other Western nations have been forced into taking positions they would not have selected if the UN did not exist. The outcomes of these operations have mostly been opposite to the interests of one or more of the Western nations. The UN Assembly consists of more than 150 member countries, the majority of which are primitive, poor, underdeveloped, and illiterate.
