I am an american and I feel my country has failed in promoting international justice through an international body instead of taking up issues itself.

There is no country that will put the interests of others before their own needs.  One country cannot play world police and have it work.

Um....this isn't the thread to complain about other countries.  The whole forum is for that.  This thread is to acknowledge shortcomings of your own country.

So seneca....anything to say about South Africa?

This is the Asian was, blame everybody else for your own incompetence. India tried it, They were better off under British Rule than what they are now under their own rule.

again, off-topic of this thread. And one should leave it to the majority of Indians to decide if they are better off under British rule. It takes a long time to shake-off the shackles and booby traps the British left. Yes, some of these are the boobs who think a country should invite a master from somewhere to rule them. I know many Aussies are still happy being ruled by British royalty, but many Indians identify with other Aussies who are for a truly independent Republic - like the former Prime Minister Paul Keating! They would rather struggle and progress by themselves. If the British stopped interfering and truly left them alone India and Pakistan-Bangladesh would have prospered. It is divide and rule and some local loyal-royal servants and stooges who still crave for the British royalty in India.
