The folks over at the Freedom Line of CFIF.ORG have got it right.

The United Nations has long been a bastion of hope for the naïve idealists who seek a Star Trek-like nirvana under a benevolent global government.

But recent stories revealing widespread corruption in its Iraqi Oil-for-Food program demonstrate that the U.N. is little better than a third-rate banana republic where bureaucrats line their own pockets and bribery, kickbacks and pay-offs are the order of the day.
There is little question that the U.N. is broken and in need of repair. Until those repairs are made, however, the United States must continue to be wary of proposals from an organization that seeks to curtail our freedom and take a bite out of our incomes for the sake of global government.
