True leaders should avoid policies leading to the destruction or degradation of the importance of institutions, even if they don’t agree with what is said or what their policies or beliefs are. For example; Mr. Bush loathes the U.N and is trying by all means to erode its prestige and function because he received a no as an answer for his alleged reasons to go to war in Iraq.
The U.N. security council did not believe that Iraq had in 2003 mass destruction weapons, and in the end it proved right. Do we need any other form of proof about who is right and why institutions like the United Nations exist?

But Mr. Bush said that the U.N. and other organizations such as the I.A.E.A. have become cumbersome. He may have a point there.

He may or may not. All sorts of institutions tend to become bureaucratic over time, but what is he pointing to? What specific things does he think that they need change? So far, it seems that the changes proposed by his administration are designed to dillute the capability of the U.N. and its members to oppose powerful nations, but we should remember that the United Nations exists exactly for the opposite.
With politicians you cannot be careful enough: they have their own agenda, always, and what they portray as something that must be done probably is only a self-serving argument.
Is Mr. Bush trying to modify the U.N. because there is a real need to change things there for the good of humanity, or just because the United Nations did not vow to his arguments in favour of the invasion of Iraq? Does he want better management or just to take down international opposition?
The U.N. and those who oposed military action there seem to have been proven right, so attempting to curtail their capability to politically oppose actions taken by countries could become a very dangerous precedent, not to mention authoritarian and short-sighted. If those countries that helped invade Iraq had listened to the U.N. and weapons experts, thousands of individuals would still be alive today.
