sucks to be them

most of you, hopefully, have heard of the oil-for-food program/scandal. a recent report drawn up by the iraqi government was leaked, and the london times has the story. if these implications turn out to be true, then france and especially russia are screwed, as is the UN, who was supposed to be running the program. i've even heard rumors floating around that kofi anan's son is being implicated in the scandal, but until i get some more info on that, it will have to stay classified as a rumor.

i'm really excited to see where this is going. i really hope it ends in a major revamp of the UN, or possibly even the end of it, though that is unlikely.
