More on U.N. Reform: A Critical Perspective

Following up on Chris' post on the opening of the UN General Assembly this week and the U.N. reform agenda, it might be useful to check out some defenses of what the U.S. is seeking in the UN Reform process in the WSJ here and in the NYT here. The U.S. positions seem fairly reasonable, but I leave to Chris or Peggy to explain to me why they aren't.

This is obviously a give or take process so it will be hard to tell what is going to be accomplished in the end of the day. Given the U.N.'s track record, probably nothing. Still, we can count on one thing: Traffic in Midtown is almost certainly going to be a disaster for the next few days.
