I see that Biden mentioned the United Nations today. I had completely forgotten about them and didn't miss the UN. Bush 43 made them nearly irrelevant, and Obama didn't do much to bring them back, just a few nods. Trump delivered what I thought at the time was a crushing blow. Maybe it still will be. It is a collection of tyrannies manipulating the use of power, moribund European socialists claiming moral authority for no clear reason, and useless sons of third-world kleptocracies collecting their fat checks. In between times, they have these paste-up armies that specialise in raping helpless children.
Suddenly there is this idea they will be useful in the Middle East. I'm sure they must have been valuable somewhere, just by law of averages. But I can't recall where that was off the top of my head.
