    I've been brewing over this topic for days, hoping to formulate a compact question, but the topic is so vast. I am in the process of re-evaluating much study I've accepted as simple truth over the years..

    The UN - the Westphalian system - born from the ashes of the League of Nations - branching into the International Court Of Justice (ICJ) - the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) - the World Health Organization (WHO).. just to name a few.. how good can that be for Africa?

    Narrowing it to the popular media of the day - Zimbabwe: Looking back on the "whiteout" of Mugabe's speech at the recent UN summit - the proposal that Zimbabwe be removed from the 'Global Union'. The UK's refusal to sit at the Africa-EU summit to be held in Portugal later this year because of Mugabe.The African Union is supporting Zimbabwe’s right to be there – yet, claiming if UK doesn’t attend, the meeting is worthless “watered down”.. all so interconnected..

    Is the UN whipping Africa with one branch, while caressing with the other?

    What is the UN to Africa?
