Another Outstanding Effort from Mr. Gold
Another sobering and richly documented work that should be required reading for every American. Mr. Gold provides frightening evidence of the U.N. as an enabler of tyrants, terrorism, genocide, corruption and anti-Semitism. Mr. Gold outlines how the U.N. has metamorphsized from a institution of noble intent to an organization that is far beyond dysfunctional. The U.N. and its leadership, embracing a philosophy of moral relativism, have done a stunning disservice to mankind. Mr. Gore provides the proof.Was this review helpful?

Shocking Eye Opener
Devastating. I¿m very pleased -- and outraged -- at the same time. Very pleased at having found such a terrific read on something so important to America¿s relationship to the world. Outraged because I would have liked to think better of the UN, and the shocking evidence uncovered here makes that impossible. After reading the thrilling pages of Gold¿s expose, the evidence is undeniable: the UN was not only defective from the start, but it has directly aggravated all of the conflicts that have come before it, and even through its willful inaction, spread violence and lawlessness. I can no longer look at the genial image of Secretary-General Kofi Annan, or his top aides, without thinking of the thousands of victims of the Rwanda genocide that they abandoned, or the hostages in Sebrenica taking misguided refuge in UN ¿safe havens,¿ awaiting slaughter. Or the scandalous coverups and corruption recently uncovered in post-war Iraq. Aside from these inexcusable betrayals of its mandate, the UN ¿ as shown in ¿Tower of Babble¿ ¿ was defective in a much deeper sense. Gold traces the UN¿s destructive role in the word, including its hopelessly politicized institutions, to a fatal flaw: a moral blindness to the distinction between aggressor and victim, between threat and threatened. The case against the UN, and for an alternative coalition-based diplomacy, is resoundingly made. The moving narrative and evocative photographs will forever haunt my image of this once prized organization. No followers of current events can afford to miss this brilliant expose.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
