    UN Failures

    Hey everyone,
    I'm a 16 year old Junior. I'm on my schools debate team, actually I pretty much founded it. This years debate is over the United Nations and whether the US should increase support or not. Working with the negative, I can go as far to say that the US should leave the UN. And I am doing so. But in order to prove some points, I could use some factual information on UN failures. I've found some, but I need some hard stuff and it sounds like some of you know this stuff. If any of you can help me I'd appreciate it. Thanks,
    Will Sergent

    The problem is that they DID comply. Why would the UN impose serious consequences, sinc ehe had complied? All they really asked for was more documentation regarding WMDs and destruction of WMD's and unrestricted access for inspectors.

    They recieved 48 hours later several truckloads of documents. Everything they asked fo and several tons that they hadn't. Blix, who had really not asked for any kind of intervention as far as cooperation went, reported that they had unrestriceted access and the only bumps in the road were disputes of who should payt for communications towers for the UN inspectors.

    Blix issued several reports showing that Iraq was disarmed, we simply chose not to believe them. We were on a witch hunt and weren't about to stop until we found a witch.
    If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. —Samuel Adams
