"representative from Mauritius"

Yeah he should probably just shut up.  This is why the U.N. needs to be dismantled.  In-fighting and hen-pecking take up 99% of its efforts.

Better to have in-fighting and hen-pecking than a quick and decisive declaration of war. That's the place's one reason for existing: keep World War 3 from breaking out. Anything they do above that is a bonus.

You seem to think that war is a completely bad thing.

I'm just telling you the point of the place. That is why the League of Nations failed: its entire point was to prevent World War 2, and it did not do that.

Wouldn't be mad at guy for telling the chucklenuts to shut up. Keep the giggling for when you're talking to people behind his back or something, if you really think his statement is so humorous then wait till he finishes and then lay it out. It's like it's a first grade classroom full of children. This is the U.N. that's being talked about so close enough I guess.

It's nice to know that the "aged nationalist bigot" stereotype is present around the world, and not just in our redneck of the woods.

Actually, it would be more like "bairaru." Only if it ended in an "r" would they use the extended "a."

And forget "cotillion," get one to correctly pronounce "silver."

I'm not sure how much credit we can give the UN for not having WW III and how much it is nations not wanting to repeat WWI or WWII.

It certainly hasn't stopped a whole bunch of smaller conflicts though.
