U.N., Dag Hammarskjold and moral authority
Reader comment on: The United Nations "Human Rights" Council
Submitted by Charles I., Aug 9, 2014 13:01
I have long felt that the U.N. lost all moral authority when Dag Hammarskjold's plane crashed in Angola (I think in 1960). Your article seems consistent with my thoughts and explains how this came to be. The U.N. probably should be disbanded and replaced. Or, at least, the Western nations should form their own counterweight. (I do not think that NATO quite serves this function.) I wish that more Western nations (in addition to the U.S.) would show the courage to vote against the defamatory UN resolutions instead of merely "abstaining."
