The UN is de facto dead

The UN no longer counts in the world. Like the League of Nations, it will thankfully disappear

The League of Nations, established after World War I to maintain peace among countries, formally dissolved in 1946 after failing to stop World War II and numerous earlier conflagrations. Historians recognize that its de facto demise occurred long before its official death certificate was issued.

The United Nations, established after World War II to maintain peace among countries, has not formally dissolved. Historians of the future will recognize, however, that it is already de facto dead.

Last month, just prior to the referendum in Crimea that would lead to its secession from Ukraine, the UN Security Council voted on a resolution to reaffirm Ukraine’s “sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity.” It declared that the coming referendum “can have no validity.”

The year is always 1945 for the UN. The UN can't adapt to the changing dynamics of power in the world. There is no reason the UK and France should be veto holding permanent members of the UN Security Council, but India, Germany and Brazil aren't. Because the UN can't adapt it will become irrelevant and cease to be viewed as legitimate.

It already appears to have been. Countries ignore it without consequence. All it does is talk.

The USA should have withdrawn from that useless piece of crap organization a long time ago.
