Perversion of Purpose

The United Nations was formed after World War Two for the express purpose of preventing war, and now this nation's presidents use it to provide authority for starting wars. "This action is justified by UN Resolution #x" as we invade another, usually Arab, nation.

The public statement of President Obama was "no boots on the ground" [sic], and we have not actually invaded (well, with boots on the ground anyway). Missiles & aircraft yes. Perhaps it is figure of speech? Of course, we may yet have people in there, like Special Forces "training" the rebels, for example; or to rescue the inevitable shot down pilot(s). Wait for it.
