Why George Bush was right about the UN

Recent developments seem to prove that George Bush was indeed right about the UN when he said that the UN had to act or that the UN would be irrelevant. Of course I'm not talking about Iraq, but about Sudan.

While some left wing people are trying to indict Tony Blair for war crimes and some right wing people try to convince the rest of the world (mostly in vain) that the Iraq really is for humanitarian reasons, Sudan is quietly against in genocide against their people in Darfur.

Incidentially, Sudan was just re-elected by acclamation for their position in the human rights commision of the United Nations. Talk about irrelevant.
