Apparently the UN realizes it has an image problem. They’re running ads such as the one at right, which gives the impression that they are somehow responsible for free elections in Iraq, on Instanpundit, no friend of the UN. Another ad defends the Oil-for-Favor*ahem*Food program.
Evidently they didn’t get the memo. You’re going to have to actually stop being an international impotent circle-jerk if you want people to respect you again.
