#1 experts have told the United Nations that before a military operation takes place Mali's army needs to be retrained. Once that happens, another issue will be the rainy season, which should be over by next September

Then it'll one again be time for the glowball worming conference, the Durban conference, the debate when the 40-story mosque should be built on the grounds of the UN headquarters, et cetera...

#2 By the time the UN actually does something about 'global warming' (scare quotes!), the next ice age will have started.

Given that roughly half of the member nations are run by villains, thieves and scoundrels, the inability of the UN to accomplish anything can be regarded as a feature and not a bug.
