yup, the UN has proven to be just short of worthless. sometimes i think, "let the rest of the world work out their own peace(and issues)." then i think of the analogy of a group of boys assaulting a girl...i'm not gonna stand by and let it happen.
politics too...many wars could have ended sooner w/ the absence of politics.
oh, and the US could produce more energy if certain groups and political parties would allow!
what if one "boy" standing back were "egging them on" and supplying them with weapons while not physically assaulting her?
(not saying assault is good just using his analogy haha)
