I'm working on my paper for APUSH, and I could use a little help. I need to explain the circumstances which created the United Nations. I was wondering if I missed any large ones, or if anyone knows of any that I didn't think of. Here's what I have so far:
*the world was largely in ruins, so a central body was needed to help rebuild after WWII
*a central body was needed to help restore peace and the balance of power in Europe
*the need for an international "watch dog"
*an international body was needed to help settle international disputes among nations
*with the introduction of the atomic bombs at the end of WWII, there needed to be a "conference table" where counties would hopefully talk and not use atomic weapons
