The article focuses on the growing role of the United Nation (UN) in the international politics. The author says that there is more hope for the UN today, and there is more hope for Korea and the other imperiled areas of the world, than there was before the Communist tanks trampled down the barriers of the 38th Parallel. For now blood is being spilled in the name of the UN, and sometimes man learns from his agonies. Out of the agonies of World War II, a UN was born. In the peace that was no peace, the UN was too often left to languish. Too often the UN ran into difficulties, and too often it stopped.
