The UN continues to boggle the mind. Tim Blair has linked to a an article on the UN staff in East Timor being told to not cooperate with the Australian Federal Police.
In another, even more moronic turn of events, Hans Blix, former UN Chief inspector has released a study saying that we should make nuclear weapons 'illegal'. Somehow he feels that the evil people like Iran who want to nuke other countries will somehow be content to stay nuclear weapons free if everyone else is. Has Hans lost his mind? How would such a legal embargo be enforced? That's as mind blowingly stupid as saying that if America and Australia disarm completely, the communists and arabic nations will be sure to follow.
