Replace the United Nations?

"Instead of the responsible, moral and effective leadership promised in 1945, the UN is mired in corruption, an absence of leadership, and an anti-democratic majority that has destroyed its legitimacy."

"...the G-8 - as the institutional embodiment of the responsible world powers - has a narrow window in which to act responsibly, not as a supplement to the discredited UN, but as a replacement."

Very interesting idea! If the G8 guides us through these churning waters into calmer seas, maybe this will be the UN's well-deserved fate.

"Can the G8 succeed where the UN failed?"
