The importance of unilateralism...

Captain Ed writes:

...Five years after international armed intervention and UN administration, Kosovo doesn't even have an effective police force, and no one wants to speculate on its "final status". This past March, as ethnic violence flared up again and Albanians attacked Serb homes, businesses and churches (a reversal of 1999's violence), UN 'peacekeeping' forces essentially stood by and allowed mobs to continue their destruction. Even though Serbia-Montenegro has sovereignty over Kosovo, for now, the UN will not allow them to exercise any political authority, but the UN provides little of its own. It's a landscape of (mostly) quiet anarchy...
Loathsome, and unbelievable. This is what Kerry stands for. It's almost impossible to discern what Kerry and the Dems are FOR, but putting the UN in charge of things is certainly on the list.

But hey, there's one big success in the UN quagmire in Kosovo. Al Qaeda isn't sending suicide bombers to prevent the establishment of democracy and order and capitalism there! I wonder why...
