    The United Nations (UN) is an international organization whose stated aims are to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress and human rights issues.

    The United Nations was founded in 1945 to replace the League of Nations, in the hope that it would intervene in conflicts between nations and thereby avoid war. The organization began with fifty countries signing the United Nations Charter. The organization's structure still reflects in some ways the circumstances of its founding. The five permanent members of the UN Security Council, each of which has veto power on any Security Council resolution, are the main victors of World War II or their successor states (alphabetical order): the People's Republic of China (which replaced the Republic of China in 1971); France; Russia (which replaced the Soviet Union in 1991); the United Kingdom; and the United States.[1]

    There are currently 192 United Nations member states , encompassing almost every recognized independent state. From its headquarters in New York City, the UN and its specialized agencies decide on substantive and administrative issues in regular meetings held throughout each year. The organization is divided into administrative bodies, including the General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council, Secretariat, and the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Additional bodies deal with the governance of all other UN System agencies, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). The UN's most visible public figure is the Secretary-General. The current Secretary-General is Ban Ki-moon of South Korea, who assumed the post on 1 January 2007.The stated aims of the United Nations are to maintain international peace and security, to safeguard human rights, to provide a mechanism for international law, and to promote social and economic progress, improve living standards and fight diseases.[2] It provides the opportunity for countries to balance global interdependence and national interests when addressing international problems. Toward these ends it ratified a Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

    exactly what it's name is the united nations, it is to unite all the nations under one governmental control. their real purpose is world domination, under the control of the founders of the un, the wealthy bankers. rockerfeller and his friends started the un in the first place and even donated the land that the building sits on.

    all the talk about world peace etc, feeding the poor, and freeing the nations from war and slavery and poverty is just a front for their real agenda. it is not about them making mistakes or not being able to agree on anything but rather they are being told what tehy will or will not do by the bankers and their political friends of the us and britain.

    they will only accomplish what these greedy selfish people allow them to, after all he would controls the money and ability to make money and give credit gets to make the rules. if the could get rid of central bankers you would see an end to most wars and poverty (at least it would improve if not become a thing of the past) since they are the ones that fund and instigate such endeavors to gain the power and wealth they covet.
