yes we did it as a reprisal.

Who's "We"? The Us is run by adult children. They use coercion thru demands, ultimatums, threats and intimidation.

They leverage sanctions on anyone that doesn't go along with their global dominance agenda.

I could really care less what the US thinks.

Then move.

These colors don't run.

It isn't corruption. It is a lawful order issued by congress (AKA the American People) decades earlier. Trump was simply following through on that mandate, given he didn't feel the exemption option was justified in overruling that law. Sorry, Trump doesn't selectively ignore the laws he doesn't like.

Negotiations have failed over the past several decades, leading to multiple wars and growth of hostilities. Palestine never sat at the table with realistic expectations.

Now, that I can respect/understand

Nevertheless, I agree with Trump's decision. The "peace process" was a farce, while an insurgency committed daily acts of terror against a nation-state ally of ours. They claimed interest in negotiations, but made a litany of demands without any concessions. They simply have nothing to bargain with, short of terrorism which the Palestinian government employs as a matter of policy.

It isn't corruption.

The UN was corrupted soon after it was formed. Instead of one nation , one vote to protect from unlawful invasion by empires (like Nazi Germany) a "Security Council" of superpowers was formed and they make the decisions there that affect the world.

The real general assembly is relegated to voting their opinion , which shown thru famously in the vote against moving the embassy to Jerusalem, for instance.

128 to 9, Overwhelmingly against.

But like Nikki Halley said, "US does whatever it wants to".

So yah, the UN has no power to stop empires from picking on hapless countries.

Only the Security council does. It voted against the US moving the embassy too. US cast the only vote in support of that stupid ass gesture.

Edit: And thats why the uS is reducing the UN budget, out of reprisal.

So you do not consider the United States to be an empire?
