UN Vs England and America

We really do need an outspoken rep in the UN..Someone to tell Kofi to shut up or cook his own goose..His preposterous statement the the us and england are responsible for the fraud and abuse of the oil for food program. Who was charged with the oversight of that program anyway,Huh?? I say tell the UN if it doesn't straighten up and smell roses, we will curb or contribution of filthy luchre and see how that suits them...


  • Right on Howard. I say we just withdraw from the UN and kick them out of our country. I think the UN has outlived its usefullness.

  • How about this for a concept. We take the total budget for the UN, and divide it by the number of members. Then we pay our share down to the last penny. I think that would leave us paying less than 1% of the UN's budget. John and Teresa Kerry-Heinz and George Soros could make donations. That would help. Oh yes, and how about the City of New York could collect on all the the back parking and traffic tickets on the UN Staff (sort of reverse the 'Diplomatic Immunity' shell game) and put that in the pot, too. Better yet, that could help the City of New York become a little more self supporting.

    Hey, it's just a thought.

    My 'inner Republican' sees all sorts of money making angles in this deal.

    May your swamp be peaceful.

  • This pretty well sums up my feelings. It's a few lines from David Keene's article at the American Conservative Union website.

    Bolton: Truth Teller at U.N.

    David A. Keene - 3/15/05

    Bolton’s critics suggest that his recognition of the weaknesses of the world body and his persistent calls for reform over the years disqualify him for the job. They seem to share the secretary-general’s view that a true friend of the United Nations would keep his mouth shut no matter what.

    Some in the Senate are even suggesting that they might oppose Bolton’s confirmation because he has been too willing to stand up for U.S. interests and to speak the truth about the United Nations.
    What they don’t seem to realize is that the United Nations has become its own worst enemy and that unless it is reformed and reformed fast it will not survive. The president and Secretary Rice say that Bolton will go to New York to lead an effort to reform the place before it is too late. Bolton is one of the very few people who might be able to handle or even understand the assignment.

  • Well it looks like the senate wants a namby-pamby type rep for the UN..Just what we need to get kicked around further by every one else in the UN..Maybe we'll finally have the sense to leave it...
