Oh yeah…the Iraqi people really want the U.N. involved in their country. That’s why they are looting the local HQ – just like the Baath party offices.
Now think about this. You are an Iraqi. You have been going through Hell for 15 or 20 years. The U.N. not only did not help, not only did not stop it,. but tried its level best to stop the people who did stop it. Do you want to let those people run your country? I would be amazed if the average Iraqi even wanted his new country to be a member of the U.N. He probably would rather apply for U.S. statehood.
