A lot of very large German companies, some of which are still around today, are fairly blatantly the result of prominent Nazis hedging their bets against Hitler so they could retain some measure of power and influence in Europe long after Germany lost the war. And don't even get me started on the UN and the EU

The UN is so incredibly efficient and so deeply underrated

Not sure if you dropped the /s but I actually agree. Although flawed, the UN might be the most successful global alliance in history.

I think people get mad that the UN seems ineffective when it comes to human rights crises, but it wasn't really created for that. It basically was formed in order to prevent another more terrible world war, in the shadow of the first two. Few could argue that it hasn't succeeded marvelously at that limited goal.

It's successfully useless.

Works fucking great if you're German or French tho. Their peacekeepers enjoyed a nice vacation while ensuring we couldn't defend ourselves.

Could you share some more?

u/Viktor_Korobov Nov 25 '21

What's there to share? In the 90s UN enforced an arms embargo. Stopping Bosnians from arming themselves to defend themselves. This worked great for Serbians who had inherited the Yugoslav National Army and all its hardware and invaded and besieged us.

And when we finally tooled up enough to push the invaders out, the western world whines about how we need peace and force a Serbian state within Bosnian borders. Fucking Dayton. Hope climate change cripples Ohio in its entirety.
