The U.N. has approved 3 wars

The Korean War
The Gulf War
The Afghanistan War

In total the U.N. has had 26 requests for War
Russia has never requested a War
China has never requested a War
France has never requested a War (surprised?)
Only one member of the UN that has ever
requested a War ... all 26 requests came
from the USA

The Balkins (Racek) exemplify one of the many
failures of the UN ... The mass murders could
have been stopped by a UN approval of war ...
instead Clinton-Albright created cover stories
to go in without UN approval (he'd never had
gotten it anyways). The UN ought to have stopped
the killings early on (bin Laden was one of the
major financial backers)

It was suggested today by one of the TH's that
the UN has restrained the "good guys" and allowed
the morally corrupt Nations to proliferate

The US requested Afghanistan? Are you sure?

What about Ruanda?
The UN stood by and watched as the people were masacered...

Face it, the U.N. has stood by and watched million be slaughtered around the world, Rwanda, Sudan is still a bloodbath for Christians (but that is certainly of no concern to the U.N.), the Korean war ws never ended with anything more than an armistice, North Korea is arming iteslf with nuclear weapons and long-range rockets....need I continue? And the U.N. does nothing. As ususal, it is locked in the quagmire of dissimilar nations with dissimilar values and beliefs attempting to act together.
Nations such as France, Germany and Russia, involved in their own financial schemes with the Islamic world and too afraid of that world to appear against it, would have my fellow countrymen die in even greater number than to stand with us. Blast them and blast the U.N.

I don't recall the UN granting a request for action in Afghanistan

There is a need to post some sort of evidence before making these sweeping assertions. It is simply untrue to say that the UN approved the Afghan War.
We will recall that, prior to 9-11, the Bush administration was frankly dismissive of the U.N. Congress was delaying the payment of U.S. arrears, and America had no ambassador to the UN. After 9/11, the Bush administration changed its tune: Congress paid the second of three arrears payments without further conditions, and the Senate confirmed an American permanent representative to the UN.
Bush proceeded along two pathways: first to get 9-11 defined as an Act of Terrorism (in U.S. law it was in international law, the situation was unclear: because there is no real definition of terrorism (as ATS posters have often noted).
Bush and Koh-Lin then escalated terrorism into an act of war (without any sanction from international law and without any solid evidence of direct Afghan governmental support: that situation still pertains to-day).
To a degree, the move to terrorism was intended to exploit earlier and rather feeble UN resolutions:1269 (1999) of 19 October 1999 and 1368 (2001) of 12 September 2001, which were reaffirmed in 1373: all essentially condemned terrorism but failed to define it and made dealing with it a national rather than an international matter.
Then, when the invasion was a fait accompli: the UN got on the bandwagon and Russia agreed to the rebuilding in Security Council Resolution No. 1378 which was unanimously adopted on November 14.

In short, a pusillanimous UN and no backing in International Law, nor any UN approval, for the invasion.
