I Hate the UN

I admit it. I truly do despise the UN, and I fear it to boot. Not because I subscribe to the black helicopter conspiracy theories, or because I fear that the UN will be the instrument of Anti-Christ's world domination. This is why I hate the UN:

1. It fails to serve the very principles on which it was founded: peace and human rights
2. It shrinks from confronting violent evil...
3. ...While expending all its energies on bitching about the behavior of liberal democracies
4. It leads people to the false belief that just because a country has a government, therefore that government is entitled to a voice in world affairs (as Jefferson rightly stated, a just government derives its power from the consent of the governed, which rules out more than half the UN)
5. It sponsors monstrosities like the Durban World Conference on Racism
6. It champions the notion of "international law", which is meaningless, and creates an atmosphere among the intellectual elites whereby people actually believe that United States judges, sworn to uphold United States law, are beginning to believe that international law has something to contribute to their legal opinions
7. It botched the entire affair with Iraq ever since 1991 and bears responsibility for much of the suffering ever since
8. It is completely lacking in heroic spirit and commitment, as evidenced by its cut-and-run "peacekeeping" efforts all around the globe
9. It is corrupt and arrogant, ranging from bailing on parking tickets, blowing taxpayer money at the finest restaurants and hotels around the world, and then there's Oil for Food...
10. Finally, it occupies some of the finest real estate on Manhattan. Speaking of which...

...it now wants to spend $1.5 billion to renovate its headquarters there. That would be money well spent on plane tickets and moving vans to get the UN keptocracy off our shores and to, say, France. Or Burkina Faso, or Munich, or--heck, why not--Durban. Just get them out of our country.

Lest I be accused of being just another unilateralist, let me say that I do believe international institutions can be effective and worthy of commitment. NATO was an excellent example. Alliances formed for a real purpose. And since the highest purpose of government is ensuring political, economic and religious freedom, the UN ought to be replaced by an institution that actually embodies and defends those freedoms. Which is why I support the formation of an organization that admits only those governments who rule with the just consent of the governed and whose constitutions, laws and enforcement policies are designed to protect those freedoms, not take them away. Preferential trade agreements ought to be restricted to members of that organization. Countries that do not deserve to belong should be shunned, making it plain that to have a voice in that forum, their people must have a voice within their borders.

Call it the United Democracies, or Free World Union, whatever. Just get rid of the UN once and for all. It has outlived its usefulness, and can only be a force for ill in the future.

Just toolin' around your site. Hey, if the UN was so ineffective in Iraq, then where are all those WMD's? Eh?

Maybe Georgie Boy will help us some more by looking around the White House for them again (which, in the most tasteless mockery of American troop deaths I've ever seen, he did not to long ago).

Yeah, we get it W. They died for nothing. Just like the UN told us. Ha-friggin-ha.

Check it out

Fine, but answer this: if the WMDs weren't there to begin with, why did Saddam play cat-and-mouse with the UN inspection teams? And why did all the major intelligence services believe that Saddam still had WMD?

I get that they aren't there. What I've never heard is where they went. Do you have an answer for that?

I agree with what you said about the UN. I hate that organization with a passion. And that is why I'm wondering how you overlooked NATO. I hate NATO even more than the UN. Their purpose was to protect the countries that are a part of it. It was created during the Cold War and now that the Cold War has been over for nearly two decades, why are they still in existence? Their purpose was served and NATO should have been disbanded years ago. The moment they attacked a country that threatened none of their member states, they showed their true colors.

The real problem with the US giving the UN the boot out of this country is complex. It's a good idea, but very complex.
The main reasons we just cant abruptly leave are:
1. The UN excells at manipulating the media, both in Europe and in the US itself. If we just say to the UN "You're a screw-up. Get the hell outta our country." Europe will piss and moan for decades. The liberal mainstreem media will condemn the administration for doing it spewing out "Our president is a war-mongering desopt who wants to halt the Global Pease Process!!!" or some other bull like that.
2. The UN spends some of the money it gets from graft to corrupt Congressmen to keep them in favor of the UN. A congressional bill would need to be passed to show them the door.
3. The ligiticimy scam has gotten all the total idiots in the world to make it look like: "If the UN doesn't say its right, its wrong. And if the UN says its right, its right and thats the end of the discussion. Imagine the shock on our country for kicking them out without careful planning.
4. If we kicked them out, ANOTHER FUCKING LIBERAL DUMBASS WILL PUT THEM BACK IN HERE WITH EVEN MORE POWER WHEN THEY GET BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!

I think that the UN does a good job considering the insurmountable nature of the task it is trying to accomplish. World Peace, ending poverty and creating universality amongst human rights bodies are INCREDIBLY difficult tasks, and its attempt to do so is admirable, particularly in a world where nobody else is willing to try.

For THAT I give them credit.

Their drugpolicy, banning effective antidepressants with minimal sideeffects and low abuse potential.
Amineptine, and maybe tianeptine to. What the fuck do they know about drugs? then they let Hizbollah park their rocketlauncher besides their headquarters so the swedish media "Dagens Nyheter" mainly can write about how cruel IDF is shooting down UN buildings. Which they eventually explain 4 weeks later or so with a hardly noticeble article if at all.

you're on fluoride liberal. its worse than you say.


Stop the UN fast. United negroes controlling, using, abusing whites since 1958. They are much, much worse than you people keep claiming jews and zionists to be.

A bad mix of nations. Indonesia nation with the most muslims. States rich coountry eager to please nigers and get its people raped. Germany rich country with whites falling for blacks, orientals and muslims.

Mohit, your comments are incredibly hurtful and are invalid as well. I am Caucasian, yet I love all races of people equally because race does not define humans, our ability to accept and love all people truly represents our species.
