America Needs to "Wake Up" to What the UN Really Is

UN officials need to remember who pays there salaries, Namely the US and Japan.

Form CNN:
The U.N. official overseeing relief efforts for the tsunami disaster has called on world leaders to "wake up" to numerous other humanitarian catastrophes that he said get little or no attention.
[...]
"Could we wake up please to those 20 forgotten emergencies" [Egeland]
Nice to see he knows the facts. Maybe he should travel around his own continent spreading this message. The US already gives 40% of the world's disaster relief.
