Fareed Zakaria expands on one

Fareed Zakaria expands on one of the points made by Charles Krauthammer in an article I posted a few days ago, namely that “France and Russia have turned the United Nations into a stage from which to pursue naked self-interest.” However, my quarrel with France and Russia is not that they view the United Nations this way. Any rational nation will treat the U.N. as a means to pursue its ends, not as an end in itself. My quarrel with France and Russia is with their decision to make collusion with Saddam Hussein one of their ends. If decisions like these make it too difficult for the United States to pursue its ends through the U.N., then, as Trunk suggests, it truly will be time to revisit the underlying issue of our participation in that organization.
