In essence, they're working on it, but admit that they won't have all of the bases covered.

"Y2K could cause a world of problems for the U.N." GOOD!! Did you hear that 20/20 story of UN "peacekeepers" leaving out food for starving people, and then trying to SHOOT the locals as they tried to get the food?!? Or about how they took people off of the streets, and beat the men, and raped the women?!? Sound just like the SERBS, huh?!? In fact, I think thats where some of the pictures coming from "serbia" are really from...

The UN in all its forms is just another modern, computer-dependent organization that also depends upon the support infrastructure of the city it's located in. If Y2K is serious enough to take down governments and strangle cities, the UN is as much a goner as is the IRS. And I can't think of two more deserving entities for Y2K's impact.
