I knew the UN was a cesspool of ignorance and corruption.
This really drives it home.
While they are handing out awards for 'Hero of Mother Earth', all sorts of nasty things are going on in the world and they do nothing to help stop it. Hey U.N. ... how about doing something to stop slavery in Africa or how about doing something to stop China from forcing abortions instead of awarding dictators medals?
