If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. Anne Bradstreet

And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them. Ether 12:27

Yea, all things which come of the earth, in the season therof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart; Yea, for food and for raiment, for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul. And it pleaseth God that he hath given all these things unto man; for unto this end were they made to be used, with judgment, not to excess, neither by extortion. D&C 59:18-20

Qadaffi is absolutely right!

Not on everything, of course, but he is spot-on in his assessment of the UN:

"He . . . chastised the U.N. for being unable to prevent or stop what he numbered at sixty-five conflicts since the Security Council was established, and called for U.N. headquarters to be moved out of New York."

The UN is an abysmal failure, and why everyone can't see that is beyond my ability to understand. Besides not being able to prevent or stop any of the conflicts since its inception, it severely restricts our national sovereignty, putting us under the burden of having to get permission to do what needs to be done as the primary peacekeeper for the world. When we act to enforce UN resolutions, the world gets mad at us.

Not only should the UN get out of New York, the United States should get out of the UN.
