    Another reason to go tell the U.N. to go **** itself.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why does the EU get lumped into one? It's not a single country. Break it up proper.

    I'd love to see the United States withdraw all funding for the UN. And, make all diplomats liable for all parking and moving violations they incur while on our soil.

    Agree with the UN can piss off.
    Arizona is not a problem. The Feds doing nothing to improve the situation is the problem.

    Thanks for posting the numbers, I thought Japan gave a bit more than the US, but it is the other way around.. good to know.

    Outside of that, withdrawing from the UN would be a mistake. It is a mistake to think that the sole purpose of the UN is conflict resolution, or even to push for human rights.. the UN has done a lot of good in the fields of disease eradication etc..

    Also, we cannot make diplomats liable unless we want our diplomats abroad to be subject to the same kind of scrutiny, which we do not want.

    In terms of Arizona, the UN can say whatever it wants, that is what it does, but it is not going to actually do anything, and the only part of it that really matters, the Security Council, will never comment on what is going on, since we hold veto power.

    Which countries in particular do you feel the UN is silent on?

    The UN is wrong to do this, I mean they're an impotent beauracratic mess. Partly due to every countries fault, that isn't willing to do ****all about the worlds problems. It's failure to act on so many occasions, especially the Rwandan Genocide, should disallow it from making any criticism against anyone.
