Why waste nearly $8 billion a year when we are over $16 trillion in debt? Judging from its 66-year history, and the antics conducted this past week, the U.N. is a thorn in our side—a ‘Pig in a Polk’ investment.
The U.N. impedes, rather than advances world peace and human rights. The organization is terribly hypocritical, corrupt and its actions counter their raison d’état.
According to writer Daniel Greenfield, the U.N. is a ‘democracy of tyrants.’
Greenfield backs his claims with plenty of facts outlined in his pamphlet, ’10 Reasons to Abolish the UN.’ The document describes an unethical, inert, bureaucratic, global body with a pitiful scorecard (see video).
The U.N. General Assembly meeting this past Thursday amplified much of what Greenfield reports. The U.N. (the majority now rogue nations) allows practically anyone, such as Iran’s president Ahmadinejad, to spout off unfettered rhetoric on the world stage. Further, according to an expert on spy technology, ‘there are more spies at the U.N. than diplomats.’
In addition, the worst offenders of human rights and warring delve into back-door politics and corruption. They line their pockets with illegal funds and connive against select nations who oppose innate agendas.
As a whole, the U.N. consistently gangs up on Israel and the U.S.
At their meeting this past week, the squabble between Iran and Israel took center-stage, while the 9/11 al-Qaeda uprising in the Mideast and Northern Africa was a sideshow.
Iran’s president Ahmadinejad bellowed the Islamic version of end-of-times and lambasted Israel. Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu countered—he drew a red line on a bomb illustration saying, ‘Red lines don’t lead to war, red lines prevent war.’ He also said,
‘Nothing could imperil the world more than a nuclear-armed Iran.’
Netanyahu is right, but his remarks likely fell on mummified ears. He also commented on the Israeli-Palestinians issue, ‘. . . won’t solve our conflict with libelous speeches at the U.N.’ Speeches, in and of themselves, do not solve problems, however eloquent they may be. A fact our very own president ignores.
President Obama delivered yet another ‘conciliatory’ speech about the attacks on U.S embassies.
Even after his own officials stated otherwise, Obama rehashed ‘it was the video’ myth that sparked the embassy attacks, and warned that those who killed Americans would be ‘held accountable.’ He also reverberated the usual ‘still time and space’ to resolve Iran’s nuclear threat.
President Obama’s hollow warnings embarrassingly go unheeded. Without assertive action, his words are nothing more than motivators for the enemy.
The U.N. has had over a half century as ‘stewards of human rights and world peace.’ Have they done a good job? To decide, watch your favorite source for international news; then consider Greenfield’s 10 reasons to abolish the U.N.:
- The United Nations Obstructs America’s Defense of the Free World
- The United Nations is a Force of Global Injustice
- The UN Obstructs the Prevention of Genocide
- The UN Distorts Women’s Rights to Promote Violence against Women
- The UN Cannot Prevent Nuclear Proliferation
- The UN is an Undemocratic Perversion of Democracy
- The United Nations is Hopelessly Corrupt
- The UN is an Economic Drain on America
- The United Nations Endangers America’s Civil Liberties
- The UN Holds Human Rights Hostage to its Double Standards
Is it worth the time and $8 billion a year to support the U.N.?
