UN Must Stop Being a Palliative Organization

More than Half a Trillion dollars is what the United nations has received in funding since it came into existence more than 70 years ago. Despite this ridiculous amount of money, it was endeared with one simple mission really – to stop wars and ensure peace among countries. Now is you were to ask me based on this task if the UN was a useless organization my answer will be an absolute Yes.

While there has been some actions taken in preventing major humanitarian crisis such as massive starvation and disasters, for the most part the organization does not justify the money not the trust placed on it.

This total deviation from course has been fueled by a lack of evaluation and accountability from the part of the Member Nations who fund the organization. Also, selective interests on the part of wealthy, powerful nations has ensured a massive decline in the credibility of the entire organization. An example of vested interest is Saudis unjustifiable seat on the UNs human rights counsel which I describe as laughable at best. Also, the organization seems to bend easily to the whims of the biggest nations and whatever stance they take.

Rather than focus on rendering humanitarian assistance as it seems to be doing a lot lately, how about actually devising effective means to prevent such occurrences in the first place?

We do not need an organization that is given so much money to merely pay lip service and merely condemn actions that cost lives and property when it should be actively preventing them. The UN remains a joke until it can live up to its first major task of ensuring World peace.

They need to do just enough good to get themselves into a trusted position. I don't believe that their ultimate goal is to the benefit of the majority of the population though.

UN is just a puppet in the hand of the US. The USA is running UN as per its whims and interest. UN Security Council is the worst example of its failure.

Hard for them to even pretend they strive for world peace when the UN Peacekeeping Troops have committed atrocities just about everywhere they've been. You nailed it....accountable to no one = Corruption. Personally, I think the UN was a scam from day 1. It was a global power grab.

They literally have no power and you are right they are a joke.

howdy there empress! well I was going to say that they are a joke at what they were supposed formed to do but cryptocoffee said that. I think they do a decent job of getting food and aid to the dictators of poor countries so they can steal all the supplies for themselves and then demand more help.

Yes. Yes. Yes...couldn't agree with you more. I've been trying to figure out the purpose of the UN since I started to understand politics/the system. Sounds like a major money grab with very little long-term success.
