Talk About Your "Buyer's Remorse"

Apparently, according to this screed over at Information Clearing House, we own the UN:

"The UN has been drawn into being an arm of the US - a division of the state department"
Well, then Colin Powell has got some explaining to do, because how the hell did we let Syria on the Security Council, Libya chair the Human Rights Commission, and Iraq chair the disarmament conference?

It's bad enough that they think the US owns the UN, but the article specifies that the UN is the US' lapdog vis-a-vis Israel:

"The UN Security Council has been taken over and corrupted by the US and UK, particularly with regard to Iraq, Palestine and Israel."
How many UN Security Council resolutions (the binding ones, as opposed to the blowhard resolutions of the General Assembly, which (thank God) have no real power) have condemned Israel for one thing or another? 67 (numbers 1-19 don't count). How many condemn the splodeydopes? 3 (numbers 81, 82, and 85).
