“The United Nations (UN) was created in 1945 at the end of World War II when the global world realized that the internal and external struggles that the nations had needed a mediator through which the problems could be solved in a neutral manner without the threat of war. The destruction the world face in lieu of the World War II was something that none were willing to face again. They had seen first hand the devastation and the violation of human rights that were created when the nations warred. Thus, a peacekeeping body was formed for the international community in the form of the UN.”
