Are you proud of the UN now?

AP is reporting incredible news about the UN.
A U.N. commission concluded that the Sudanese government and militias carried out mass killings and probably war crimes in the Darfur region, but stopped short of calling the violence genocide, according to a report released Monday.

The panel recommended that the International Criminal Court investigate evidence of widespread abuses including torture, rape, killings of civilians and pillaging.

The United Nations has called Darfur the world's worst humanitarian crisis, saying the conflict there has claimed 70,000 lives since March — mostly from disease and hunger — and now affects 2 million people, up from 1.8 million in September.

While the commission was clearly reluctant to pronounce a verdict on the violence, it said many of the worst attacks "may amount to crimes against humanity."
OK, let me see if I understand this. The Sudanese government and militias killed at least 70,000 people, and the UN thinks, maybe, just maybe there might have been some crimes against humanity committed?

The biggest crime against humanity right now is that the UN has any credibility at all!
