    I always thought Moynihan had the best response. It was something like: responding yes the United Nations has problems, but it is the mechanism for the world to communicate with itself. What do you do? Go away from the world?

    I support the UN when it benefits my position, just like everyone else; this is why the institution is largely a joke. With the likes of Syria on the Human Rights Council, France having a veto, peace keeping blunders and unmitigated BS, who can take it seriously all the time.

    But, regardless, I would not suggest it can't be improved. There is something between total acceptance and saying to hell with it.

    If this doesn't work, it was around 4 minutes 24 seconds.

    Or if you want straight to it...

    I definitely support the U.N. Ignoring the whiny losers who think international relations is about getting your ego stroked, it gives the U.S. significant diplomatic advantages. In addition to veto power, having the U.N. building on our soil gives us an edge in negotiations and espionage. International diplomacy has to happen somewhere, and it makes sense to hold it in a forum where we have an edge.

    the US used to define itself through "state rights". once the FED took the state rights over, this country has
    steadily went downhill. what resonates in your peon brains that you actually believe surrendering to an even larger power
    base politic will solve the problems which have been designated by this same idiotic type of surrender?
    what the **** is wrong with you people?

    Oh god, one of these people.

    Yeah, that's right. Ben Bernanke is going to sneak into your house at night and touch you inappropriately. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    It's always fun to read a lot of US posters' views on the UN - especially in light of your above comment.

    I think if the Security Council and General Assembly voted more in line with US wishes then you'd have a much more positive view of the UN from many US posters on debate sites.
