That’s been a while.

They also farted around in Africa for whatever good that did.


I say this respectfully - no, no they weren't.

Now, if the UN could only expel Russia from the Security Council but that’s about impossible with Russia having veto power.

The real human rights atrocities are being committed by the Ukrainians. Most of the accusations against Russia are war propaganda.


The irony of the Holocaust denier NOT siding with the Nazis against Russia is hilarious.

But, carry on with the mental gymnastics

Worthless.
BOOM!


Trump had them back on their heels. Another 4 years and real change within the UN would have happened.

Last I heard the USA was footing 25% of the UN budget. Don’t know what it is now.

UN in Croatia and the word effective don't go together

The UN was founded in 1945 as a "peace" keeping body of nations. How well have they done at that? Now they are a "globalist" body of nations.

Like NATO, founded in 1949 to contain Stalin and the Soviet Union (where is Stalin?) they have no excuse to exist except to push a globalist agenda and one world government.

Yet they cost US taxpayers billions!. The costly and useless UN and NATO should be abolished!

Did you follow the chain of events when a British Commander named Rose (I believe?) came on the scene?

All he did was sit on his ass while people did their thing till they were tired and then put political pressure on the left overs. His defense of his tour there was that he remained neutral and challenged zero force. His belief was that "peace keepers are neutral" - well you can be neutral at home if you're not actually doing anything. It literally was sitting around and waiting.

The situation in Bosna improved in spite of Rose, not because of him.

And that has little to nothing to do with Croatia. Croatia kicked off the conflict between the 2 countries by taking over the border checkpoints but then that was it. The war inside Bosna between Bosnian Croats, Bosnian Serbs and Bosniaks was something separate and what Rose was focused on. IMO.

Respectfully, somehow things settled down and the fighting ceased in spite of his presence.

Respectfully - I spent 3 years as a DOD SME on the Balkans. I've been to Croatia, I've been to Bosnia and I speak all 3 languages. I've also worked the mission with members of the Brit Army and Air Force. I've had my work product briefed to the President of the US and I've briefed the head of the Croatian version of their CIA in his own language on the situation in the region. I say that to give my CV for why I say :

The UN was not what most would consider "active and effective" in Croatia. Just because you're in the room, doesn't mean you did anything.
