UN's relevance

In yesterday's WSJ, Kofi Anan tries to justify the UN's continuing relevance. However, what inevitably comes out is that the UN does a lot of feeding hungry children, and little peacekeeping. Perhaps the UN ought to genuinely alter its mission to the world's soup kitchen, instead of the arbiter of world peace. Feeding the hungry is truly noble, and it accurately reflects what the UN is and is not capable of.
