weakness
not democratic. (sometimes it is a strength)
veto.
cannot interfere in internal matter of a country. (It is upto the country to decide whether to invite UN to resolve an issue or not)
is dumb.

just look at the pathetic job it did with croatia and bosnia and you'll find over 100 reasons why is sucks. If america doesnt care about it, nothing will get done.

its better than nothing i guess.

Looking at the restrictions with which the UN is working, i will not say it is good for nothing.

Good

- The United Kingdom has a veto

Bad

- The United Kingdom doesn't have the only veto

They use too much prime real estate in New York, which could be better used for luxury condos.

Positives:

The UN has a great view of the East River.

And their's a good pizzeria named Mimo's two blocks away.

The building itself is very shinny and clean.

Negatives:

They don't solve anything.

They create too much traffic for the average Joe.

The diplomats have immunity so they don't have to pay for any parking tickets which pisses off everybody.

fair point. the rules that the UN work under make most issues degenerate into talkfests that dont solve anything.

it would work alot better if the resolutions it puts forward were actually binding to the countries that sign them, but who's going to agree to that!?

The united nations itself is a bit of a paradox. It strives to be universal- relevant to all countries, all cultures, all people, but that in itself makes it a "toothless tiger" (thanks boyo). You can only change something if you are willing to go against it.

UN is a bunch of balls

Da volim CRNO-BELE,
Ja ponosno kazem svima,
Ja volim to slavno ime,
I divim se samo njima.
Na svetu nista lepse,
Ne moze da postoji,
Nego sto je nasa ljubav,
Prema CRNO-BELOJ boji.

Ljubav prema klubu,
Ne moze da prestane,
Dok zivim klicacu njemu,
Volim te Partizane.
