Ah, the UN's "peacekeeping" abilities are, well, not so much

Good lord. The UN "peacekeeping" force on the border of Lebanon is actually complicit in at least one Hezbollah kidnapping from 2001. It's this type of good work that makes me believe the UN is definitely the last, best hope of mankind. I'm still waiting for someone to tell me who said that (and if it isn't about the UN, I will be embarassed).

UPDATE: I used that fancy thing they call "google," and it turns out that Abraham Lincoln (See here or here) used it first:
My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.
I could have sworn it was somebody talking about the UN. So embarassed I am!
