America among the Lilliputians

Max Boot adds some macabre details to the farce in which we are engaged at the United Nations: “America must not be tied by Lilliputians.” The piece is terrific.
Here is the heart of Boot’s argument: “This is what the UN ‘process’ comes down to: a country that keeps its own people in the dark, literally and figuratively, is asked to shed light on what America and Britain should do with regard to Iraq. Gaining the imprimatur of Guinea – and of such other global giants as Angola, Chile and Syria – is supposed to confer ‘international legitimacy’ on the actions of two of the oldest and most successful democracies in the world.” (Courtesy of RealClearPolitics.)
