    What is their purpose? Why is it that America has to be the one to get involved with this murdered reporter? Why not the UN?

    They're pretty good at rape, and taking up a valuable piece of property in New York City.

    Aside from that, I got nothing.

    In all seriousness. This murder happened at the consulate?


    What the hell is the difference between a consulate and an embassy anyway?

    If a murder happens at the consulate, and if UN does nothing, just what the fuck is their purpose? Isn't that their "jurisdiction?"

    How does it work?

    We don't. Unless you want to be a Superpower or something. That sounds like expensive big government, being a super power.

    They're supposed to partition off a section of the Levant to form the State of Israel, then spend the next several decades supporting enemies of the State of Israel.

    Nice work, if you can get it.

    FYI, "The International Court of Justice, which has its seat in The Hague, is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations".

    See: Home | International Court of Justice

    I wasn't able to find any open investigation on the murder, but it is too soon to expect one.

    However, "The Nuremberg trials established that all of humanity would be guarded by an international legal shield and that even a Head of State would be held criminally responsible and punished for aggression and Crimes Against Humanity. The right of humanitarian intervention to put a stop to Crimes Against Humanity – even by a sovereign against his own citizens – gradually emerged from the Nuremberg principles affirmed by the United Nations.

    Happens at the consulate. That is on their soil so to speak, isn't it?
