Mark Steyn indicts the U.N. and the media’s reaction to its child rape scandal. Remember this: “If you’re going to rape prepubescent girls, make sure you’re wearing a blue helmet.”

Here’s the problem.

We’d all love for the U.N. to be a great institution. In an ideal work, the United Nations would be a true guardian of peace and happiness.

However, we live in a world where half the members of the U.N. are countries run by dictators who are niether elected nor accountable.

The result: The U.N. looks like a democracy. Representatives sure do a lot of voting at the U.N. But it’s not. Let’s quit pretending the U.N. holds some high moral ground. And let’s quit pretending that troops wearing blue helmets aren’t raping defenseless kids.
