The United Nations is criticizing the United States for our policies on policing, torture, Guantanamo Bay and capital punishment ["UN panel criticizes U.S. over torture," News, Nov. 29].
Why doesn't the UN, which is nothing more than an ineffectual, biased, highly paid debating society, do something worthwhile? Stop ethnic cleansing, the killing of non-Muslims in the Middle East, the mutilation of women in many Third World countries, or human trafficking.
The UN doesn't do much because it is pathetic.
