And when the great wave fell back, the UN stood revealed, Notably Useless

Times Online - Comment

Here's the part that humored me the most:

The blunt truth is that on international crises ranging from war in Iraq to the waters of the Indian Ocean, the UN is philosophically redundant, structurally irrelevant and bureaucratically ossified.

The suggestion of basing a new organization on the G8 only expanding it to G10 to include China and India I don't agree. Seems to me any international organization intended to be the moral overlord of the world should only include nations with a democratic government. We are talking about democratically elected parliaments or congresses and presidents. But the suggestion of moving the location to Canada is just fine by me and the sooner the better.
