    i'm just letting you know you are wrong. a ceiling rate is set at 22% to prevent the UN being overly dependent on any one member to finance its operations. 22% is what the US pays, not 100% as you claim.

    can you supply proof that the US is paying for everything that costs anything in the UN like you are claiming?
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Surely this is a joke. You wouldn't oppose dictatorships like China and Russia gaining the power over the world? You have a serious problem if you honestly beleive that.

    The answer he receive back from Kofi Annan was to stand down, and all the UN troops were ordered to leave Rwanda.

    As a result 800,000 lost their lives in the most brutal ways imaginable.

    Look at the Darfur region of Sudan where again nobody did squat including the UN. Oh yeah they made speeched and oh stop the genocide, and did nothing.

    The UN has a long history doing nothing when they could do everything.

    So lets not be so fast to hail the UN. Let's be fast to say to hell with the UN.
    Kofi Annan was not general Sectretary during the Rwandan genocide.

    This surreal development further highlights the vast disconnect between the UN's practices and the principles outlined in the UN's Charter. It can only further damage the UN's already flawed credibility.
