Pax UN (Americana)

Peace is breaking out all over, and the UN is taking credit.

Let's not forget, though, that some of the major accomplishments which have led to this unprecedented peace are,

1) the fall of the Soviet Union (whose idea was that, again?)

2) the destruction of the Taliban, and the return of the Afghani refugees,

3) the establishment of a burgeoning Democracy in Iraq,

I think the UN deserves some of the credit. Who can deny that the UN does what it is intended to do; negotiate.

Like my man, Vito Corleone, says,

"You can get far with kind words, but you can get much further with kind words, and a gun."

Who holds the gun?
