ABSTRACT
The article states that United Nations (UN) Secretary General Kurt Waldheim has accepted an official invitation to visit Cambodia to determine whether Cambodian charges of Vietnamese aggression are justified. It is a rumor that he has agreed to go without any assurances to investigate charges of massive Cambodian human rights violations. Unless Waldheim insists on facing the central issue, his peace mission will lead to a legalistic vindication of a regime's right to commit mass murder within its own borders. And the final proof that the UN is a global monument to nihilism.
