And thats what I am saying. NO! I am sick of the US paying for everything. The US already pays for 35% of the entire UN. And now the US should pay
another 30 billion dollars? No!
It would be like the normal UN just with a bit of NATO stuck in.
So now NATO takes on the responsability? Hmmm, sounds like more burden on the US, UK, Poland, etc. Why should WE take on all of this crap? NATO is
fine as it is. If the UN needs help, just ask NATO instead of sucking up billions of extra dollars.
Well surely they would use the countries militaries and just combine the tech.
It won't work like that. If you want the UN to have their own military they need to stream line everything. 1 main rifle. 1 main pistol. 1 main
fighter. 1 min bomber. 1 main tank. 1 main APC. 1 main transport. Etc Etc Etc.
Hmm good point, but If they got the land given then it would be benifitial to all concerned.
Its not that easy. You need bases in the middle east. What country is going to allow an international military base in their country that will most
likely consist of mainly christians? What about in sout America where the economic boom will be fought over? How do you award one country the base and
not the other?
Like there isnt enough things easily screwed up?
Take NATO, largest ,most technologically advanced and most heavily armed force in the world!
Exactly my point! There are already a million things that are screwed up! Why make another multi billion dollar one? The UN has PROVEN through SCANDAL
and IRRESPONSABILITY to be unworthy of trust. Again, if they need a military force, call NATO - it's already there and won't cost any more money.
Why they dont do so in the UN anyhow.
I am not sure what you are trying to say here. If you are saying the US doesn't pay that much, I will have you know that we pay 30% of the TOTAL UN
buget. Why in the flying # should we have to pay for 1/3 of an organization that lives to tell us how wrong we are? I would like the US to leae the UN
all together. It would disolve in a week because no one else would put up the money.
...That is a debateable fact and unless you REALLY want to start an argument about it we should agree its very controversial that view.
Not really. The US produces the vast majority of the worlds best military gear. Our planes are clearly the best. Our MBT is the best. We will have the
best rifle as soon as the XM-8 comes out. Best helo's. Best ships. Best subs. Best missles. Best bombs. Best artillery.
And since as you said "the rich countries should pay the most", should all of those US dollars then go to buy Rusian equipment? HELL NO! Every cent
of our money should go towards buying US equipment, just like the Russians would want their money buying their stuff.
This is exactly how scandals happen. Who ever is in charge of deciding where the oney gets spent gets bribed.
In short, if the rest of the world wants to do it, go ahead. I don't want 1 cent of US tax payers money spent on this. We don't need an
international military. If we have a problem, we can take care of it ourselves with our own military. It would cost less for us just to show up with
our own military.
