A Good Question

Why are we still in the United Nations?

Last year American taxpayers forked over $439 million to the UN's regular budget, in addition to providing a headquarters in New York that UN bureauweenies want to expand. What do we get for the money? A finger poked in our eye at every opportunity — and in the eye of civilization itself.

As noted earlier, the totalitarian racist regime of Robert Mugabe, who converted Zimbabwe "from the breadbasket of Africa to the basket case of Africa" with his socialist policies, has been chosen to head the UN's Commission on Sustainable Development. Zimbabwe's own Social Welfare Commission reports that 63% of the rural and 53% of the urban population cannot meet basic food requirements. You see, all the white-owned farms were expropriated and handed out to hooligans who have no idea what to do with them, and now there's no food. This makes Zimbabwe the ideal choice to dictate development to the rest of the world, largely on the American taxpayers' dime.

Similarly, Syria is ideally qualified to chair the UN Disarmament Commission, in light of its impressive record of exporting terror into Iraq, Lebanon, and Israel, and its helpful willingness to squirrel away Saddam's WMD prior to the Coalition's invasion.

The vice chair of the Disarmament Commission is naturally Iran, which has been racing to develop nuclear weapons while it boasts about wiping other countries off the map.

Nat Hentoff says the corrupt, incompetent, and thuggish UN "is increasingly becoming a parody of itself." But the joke is on us if we continue to fund and even host this abominable institution.

If the UN repealed Res. 242 and said Israel's wailing wall should encompass the oil fields of Kuwait, Hentoff & co. would forgive it all transgressions.

Spare us the "blood for oil" crap, Skip.

Tough to compete with the "ass" ads but then the U.N. is known for sitting on theirs so...

What are we expected to think when a dictator, murderer and incompetent who's starving his own people is the UN's choice to head up ANY committee? Are they attempting to civilize this beast? Or are they just flipping the bird towards the Zimbabweans he has enslaved? Am sure the U.N. thinks this is amusing, but most of the world does not. Too bad those planes on 9/11 didn't take out their idolatrous temple in NYC instead.

Immediately disassociate the United States from this communist organization; close it down (everybody out, and everybody go home, within 10 days); bulldoze the site clean; erect a new building to house the United Democratic Nations (membership only to qualified nations with a real track record of republican government, elected by the people -- that means you're out, China, and maybe Russia).

Not perfect, I know, but a hell of a lot better than the moronic, thug-dominated, dictatorship-loving "United Nations" that we have now.
