UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Iraq has protested a U.N. decision to use $30 million in revenue from the U.N. oil-for-food program for Iraq to help pay for the investigation of alleged corruption in the humanitarian effort.

The U.N. is becoming more and more corrupt with each passing day.
So, the bad guys want to double dip: they corrupted the money, and now they also want to use the left-over money to pay the investigators...

Iraq: The next Japan
And they'll remember who their freinds are, too!
Change that to "if the police broke into your house..."
Go get em Iraq. It's YOUR money!
Hell, why don't we just slap the Iraqi people in the face! The U.N. steals their money and then decides the victims should pay in order to find out who stole it. Doesn't the U.N. have any money themselves? Friggin brilliant! How much longer is the world body going to put up with this crap? The U.N. should be ashamed, but you know they don't see why anyone would disagree with their policies, after all they always act for evryones best interest. Just ask the people in the Sudan. Talk about a no confidence vote. Doesn't anyone in the U.N. have any guts at all? Unbelievable!
