I just realized that the invasion of Iraq is a good thing for the UN. Think about it - Iraq was in flagrant violation of a large number of UN Security Council resolutions dating back to before the first Gulf War. The no-fly zones, the continuous, low level air attacks, the sanctions, none of that caused Iraq to obey the UN. But now all of those resolutions will be followed! That means that as a direct result of the invasion the number of countries obeying UN resolutiosn had become infinitely larger, from zero to one.
