You know that old joke about how to lose 10# of ugly fat?

Here's a way to do that to our U.S. budget: Get U.S. out!

Yeah, the UN is a joke. Its human rights committee is made up of states like Libya, Nigeria, China ect. This is like letting murderers guarding the gates to the city. When it comes to supplying troops and $ to help other nations, the US makes up the bulk of it since other nations don't want to get involved. Fortunately, we have an administration that doesn't listen to it and all the people say AMEN!

I'm sorry to have to disagree with you here. W went into Iraq to enforce UN resolutions, not in spite of them. W also got our "unpaid back dues" caught up early in his administration. Bah. Push the UN a couple of blocks east and I'll like it better.

His ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, seems to be doing a good job supporting Israel, but I'll claim ignorance about anything else he may be doing. :^/ Time to start paying more attention I guess.

You are correct about enforcing the UN resolution. I have such short memory, maybe cuz I loath the UN so much. The UN may started out as a worthy goal but there's really no way you can get the entire world to agree. Allies formed and then become enemies and every nation has its own agenda. Most of the time we are the only ones who follow through, e.g. troops in Beruit was another UN resolution of internation force until we got blown up.

Actually, the UN didn't start worthily. If you look at its history, you'll quickly find that it was founded to more or less serve Moscow.

Thanks for pointing that out, Bert.

I wanted to, but didn't want to rant and rave about Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White, the weight of the totalitarian systems against us, the rights recognized - but subject to suspension at UN whim/need...

*sigh* There I go. ;^)
