First Stingy, Now Unilateral? I wouldn't have believed this had I not seen it with my own peepers.United States President George Bush was tonight accused of trying to undermine the United Nations by setting up a rival coalition to coordinate relief following the Asian tsunami disaster. I think this initiative from America to set up four countries claiming to coordinate sounds like yet another attempt to undermine the UN when it is the best system we have got and the one that needs building up, she said. Only really the UN can do that job, she told BBC Radio Fours PM programme. It is the only body that has the moral authority. But it can only do it well if it is backed up by the authority of the great powers. Perhpas Ms. Short would like to put down the pipe and step away from the podium. The UN, in typical fashion, is sitting around scratching its balls and waiting for a coordination summit in Geneva on the 14th. Meanwhile, the US, Japan and Australia are already providing substantial amounts of first responder kits of food, water and medicines. One would think that in the teeth of an unprecedented natural disaster, UN proponents would be trying to find a way to, you know, actually do something; intead of railing against its own political impotence and inefficacy.
