One of the strongest reasons to keep the UN out of Iraq is its history in Kosovo. I was discussing this with my co-worker BBB and we agreed that one of the key differences is that malefactors are far more likely to be prosecuted by the US than the UN which tends to reduce the amount of malfeasance. I argued that Americans have a strong desire to prosecute and disparage those who do that kind of thing where as Old Europeans seem to just shrug it off. BBB pointed out that in the US, liberals tend to do the same thing for fellow liberals (e.g. Clinton) and therefore all officials appointed to Iraq should be Republicans because we know that if they do something wrong, they'll be hung out to dry.
