    "There is nothing that the UN Secretariat fears more than a crisis in relations with Washington." This really says it all and it explains why the UN is becoming a rubber stamp for approving American foreign policies without challenge! Nothing has changed in our world since somebody coined the saying: "He who pays the piper calls the tune!" Thanks to American foreign policy, words such as principles, morality, justice, democracy, equality, fairness, etc, have lost their meaning and have become very hollow! One can only have great respect for courageous people like Mr. Alvaro de Soto! Is any one surprized then that the US nominates and insists on giving the job of Secretary General to spineless people like Kofy Anan & Banki Moon?
