(US, Canada, Australia, GB, New Zealand, etc.) came together and very effectively stopped the communist takeover of a free people, and in the process earned the everlasting gratitude of the South Korean people. The next major UN intervention was during the Suez Crisis, when the Canadian Ambassador (Lester Pearson, who became Prime Minister later) to the UN, came up with the plan for a peace-keeping force, which would intervene in times of crisis. I still do not know what happened after that point, but I think it was when we allowed all the third-world countries in, with their half-baked democracies, that the UN ceased to be a force for good, and became the dithering, busy-body agency that it is today.
