War and the UN
I think this article makes a good point. I particularly like the part:
We've never visited Guinea, which is perhaps our loss. But the spectacle of the U.S. government begging that African nation for permission to sacrifice American blood and treasure to save the world from Saddam Hussein exposes the farce that the U.N. Security Council's Iraq debate has become. Every day of delay in starting the war matters little to Guinea but it puts more Americans at mortal risk.
I think we should always look out for American interests first, regardless of what the UN thinks.
