Relevant is a relative thing

The U.N., tower of courage, is reducing it's staff by 90% in Iraq because of security concerns.

The U.N. Staff Union's committee on security has called on Annan to suspend all U.N. operations in Iraq and withdraw staff "until such time as measures are taken to improve security."

By someone other than the U.N. of course. They just want to run the whole show. From somewhere safe.

The biggest impact of the cutback in international staff is likely to be on the phasing out of the U.N. oil-for-food program.

Read that again. The biggest effect of the U.N. leaving is to slow the closing of a program no longer needed. In other words, they weren't doing much in the way of positive actions, just mostly shutting down unnecessary functions.

Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, you useless cowards.
