Except that NATO is under the UN. Obama bombed Libya under the UN then. Obama authorized the UN to invade Mali.

So it is more and more acting like a cop. It's even wanted to pass global taxes.
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
