Those who buy should be doubly sought after... they are the real reason for slaughter.

The UN has called for an "investigation"; an "inquiry" into illegal poaching. My opinion of the UN has always been that they are are directors of self interest, special interests, Christian backed organizations- in other words, a worthless organization.
There is a man in this article holding illegally owned ivory tusks....the UN needs an investigation? Who is this man? Who took the picture? Find him, and have him lead those in authority to others. Am I missing something?
