    Long List of U.N. Failures

    Is it really a peace-keeping body?

    Look at some of these failures:

    Dutch Government resigns as a result of U.N. "peace-keeping".

    U.N. fails to condemn slavery in Sudan.

    The U.N. is even a joke in Sierra Leone.

    Where was the U.N. during the massacre in Rwanda in 1994?

    Where were they when Mugabe expunged all white farmers from Zimbabwe, and caused a famine that threatens to kill 8 million? Now they are talking with Mugabe about how to avert the disaster. What a joke!

    They impede or war in Iraq, claiming diplomacy and inspections are the only answer. At the same time, they refuse to discuss the North Korea's brazen moves.

    U.N. ignores more human rights abuses. This time in Iran.

    U.N. takes over in East Timor, and then drops the ball leading to further violence and anarchy.

    Remember those Buddist statues in Afghanistan that the Taliban destroyed? Well, you guessed it. The U.N. failed to save them.

    The U.N. fails to protect those displaced by a civil war in Angola.

    That's right. The U.N. failed in Kashmir, too.

    The U.N. failed in Somalia.

    The U.N. failed in Bosnia.

    The U.N. failed in Israel.

    The U.N. failed in Columbia.

    The U. N. failed in Iraq.

    Bottom line, the U.N. is a failure, and it is time to dissolve that money sucking waste of time and energy. Anyone who would defend such a utter failure is just as inept as that political body. It takes a certain kind. Somebody must either have a perverse view of human kindness, or a sick sense of humor, if they still place any credibility in the U.N..
    Why am I so opposed to socialism/communism? Because I understand the difference between people who can and those who can't. People with the skills needed to operate a business or develop new technology are a rare gift and deserve the fruits of their own labor, like all other people. When you start breaking down the distinction between somebody who maximizes their potential and somebody who does not, by saying that playing field ought to be leveled to accommodate those who do not, you effectively decrease the incentive for achievement. Assuming that this is true, I believe it is; where does that leave those of you who do not know the slightest bit about extracting the world's resources, engineering products for consumption, and creating new markets for the betterment of all humanity? Where is the incentive for educating one's self in these high arts? How does your egalitarian view solve these problems without first considering this perspective?-ME

    Its been a while for this thread but I'll add that political conditions change so often and the UN is still so poorly organized that they cannot possibly succeed in half of what they try to do. It's a shame that something that was meant to be so good has turned out so poorly.

    I agree. The UN is just a waste of money. We shouldn't be there... especially footing 25% of the bill. Unless the UN changes...

    My understanding is that the US still owes heaps... so it's like me saying I'll match your boss dollar for dollar - sounds impressive, until you find I don't pay up.

    I don't think we have any obligation to the UN or to anyone else. However, it is to our benefit that the UN be efficient and effective and that we concern ourselves with people and places outside of our own borders. We have help spread democracy and the free market throughout the entire world and even into China of all places! This has not only brought about a certain level of peace and stability but it has also helped the US become the most powerful country in the world and the UN become the most powerful organization in the world. It is in our own interest that this trend continues and that is why it is so sad to see the UN failing. Hopefully it will not end as the League of Nations did dissolving in the conflict of a world war. I don't expect that as long as the UN exists as it does today that peace will be enforced as it has been in the past and as North Korea, Iran, and others begin to test the UN's resolve on the world stage I believe the US will find it greatly in their own interest to have the UN come out of this successful but I don't think it will end this way. Our obligation is to ourselves and through that we do benefit from what the UN can offer if it can operate in its intended way. If it cannot then it can no longer be of service to us.

    Send Them All Home!!!

    The "u.n." has out lived it's self,and has proved over and over that they have a NEW WORLD ORDER agenda. I say we stop all funding,send them back to thier respective coutries and turn the "u.n." building into low income housing. Seeing as how it is U.S tax dollars that pay it. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    Why?

    Why do you love your country? It is like all other western countries, it is no better no worse, so why? No trick answers or anything, but why are you sure that people outside your own country are diffrent somehow? Its like you consider borders dividing line of humanity were you have America-humans, Arab-humans and so on. Won't that attitidute kill humanity, were if we consider ourselves so diffrent, almost diffrent speices, simply because our fellow man lives in china. Don't you understand tha patriotism may seem good, but in the end it will doom humanity to petty wars with one another and then our eventual extiction?

    That's most certainly not true. The US has the best economy and highest standard of living out of all them. The Western nations are in no way equal.

    ?

    Such a diffrence. I live in canada, but have lived in the U.S., and if anything the quality of living in a big city in america is exactly the same as in canada. I have been to both places and a have to tell you, its not like what you hear on the tv and radio, other countries (britian, france, canada) aren't that diffrent. In fact the only real diffrence is in the taxes you have to pay.
