    The successor to the League of Nations, formed (On 24th October 19450 mainly to facilitate peace between two countries in the events that politics take a rough turn - The arbitrator.

    Not to mention the fact that the USA Never had been a member of the League of nations, FDR Started this to depict allied countries..including Soviet Russia.

    The advantages the UN has over the LoN, was simple.
    It had its own force, and hence technically was not influenced by major players in world politics.

    The LoN required consent from all members, while the UN just required a majority-> a faster decision making process.
    It was an advantage when some countries may dismiss the threat looming at a neighbor's corridor.

    The World war had left a certain two nations as allies, in a course of events which would never have been, had not the threat of the swastika dawned upon the world.

    The Uneasy lull between the USSR and the USA had begun, The race to outsmart, out think, and outlive the other was already on...
    the mission of the UN was already on the verge of yet another failure as another world war seemed imminent between the world powers.

    Yet after surviving another test, it still continues to ensure peace and equality to the world..(well almost.. think afghanistan ;) )

    The UN is now a joke; it is no longer an assembly of free democratic nations aiming to reconcile nations for peace; The UN itself wants to become the new "Brussels of world government."

    Personally, the I believe the UN should be disposed of as quickly as possible. The UN can only dream of imposing global taxes to run their own organization. It's a hopeless collection of loons from around the world for the most part.
