Tower of Babble
How the United Nations Has Fueled Global ChaosBook - 2004
"Politicians and pundits are imploring the United States to give the UN a major role in American foreign policy. But as author Dore Gold reveals in Tower of Babble, it is absurd to look to the UN to fight aggression, combat terrorism, and preserve global order. The UN is an abject failure-- a fatally flawed organization that has actually accelerated and spread global chaos. And it is dominated by anti-Western forces, dictatorships, state sponsors of terrorism, and America's worst enemies. As a former UN ambassador, he has a unique insider's perspective on why the UN fails to address-- or in many cases exacerbates-- the very problems it was created to solve. He shows how President Franklin Roosevelt's great vision has been corrupted beyond recognition. Using internal UN documents and classified cables, Gold presents stark evidence of how the UN ignores mass murder, emboldens terrorists, props up dictators, and otherwise betrays its mission to protect the world's security. As this hard-hitting book reveals, it is, quite simply, a myth that the United Nations is a positive force for world order or the "sole source of international legitimacy." And unless the United States and its allies recognize this now, they will continue to put themselves at risk" .
