The UN Legislates While Muslims Starve

They've won their freedom, but what many Afghans want is a steady meal. The wait could be long. The United Nations World Food Program says its Afghan food cache is 60 percent short of the needed $285 million. Don't blame Washington, which is supplying nearly all of this year's donations. Look overseas, says Ken Bacon, president of Refugees International. He blames the "donor fatigue" of nations hit up for other Afghan programs. Nonetheless, the U.N. plans an urgent appeal for money.

It's funny, the UN never gets 'fatigued' telling the US what to do ... why isn't anyone clamoring for America to give less?
