Well, if the UN indeed are as you seem to believe them to be, unable
constitutionally to admit error, it would also seem that you admit that it
is a character trait which you share with them (Just like the...) - which,
however, paradoxically makes you unlike them, for you would have
therefore admitted error, something which the comparison asserts is
constitutionally impossible for the UN to do. Thus, for you to admit the
statement's prior truth ipso facto renders it henceforth false (not of
them, but of you). A cute li'l Western logical koan, with Godelian and
Popperian overtones.
