The Senate voted Wednesday to reduce the United States' share of the cost of U.N. peacekeeping missions by tens of millions of dollars.


The vote reflected congressional criticism of the United Nations following allegations of corruption and mismanagement in the oil-for-food program for Iraq, sexual abuses by peacekeepers and other scandals.


U.S. dues are now capped at 27.1 percent of the peacekeeping budget. Under a 1994 law, that cap is to be reduced to 25 percent.

This isn't good enough. The US provides 25% of the UN peace keeping budget, how about 0%!!!!!!

More distortion but nope it won't work. There are good men fallen to the leadership of tyrants like Koffi. A Den of theives dosn't mean the entire manpower is corrupt and you know it. Why put good men under the command of tyrants.............

No, we do not have a duty to maintain it. We have a duty to
pull the plug on a bad situation and to stop wasteing our tax
payer money on a pile of puke. That would definately
'finish what we started'.

Oh so theres exceptions now....bull...your trying to make the UN to an all evil orginisation but its not going to work...why?
Because it isnt one...there are men and women from the entire world being good in it and helping people....I hear no stories about UN antiland mine orginisations working together and helping people....oh that just doesnt make headlines.
Tyrants like koffi tell me what basis for this have you got?
None absolutley none just like the independant investigation said..
We put men and women under the command of people who want peace...its YOUR generation that started the wars that mine have to finish...

Hi;

How can the people of the USA support such wastefullness and coruption. I have always felt that we should not support the UN as it has been going down the wrong path. Since its inception , we as Americans have spent money on an enity that has no longer helps , but rapes and pillages other countries. The coruption started when money became a factor for there exsistance. At Halloween we have seen the unicef donation cartons , come on I mean , look , stop giving. What has the UN done to help other countries except take there land , money , and told them to live this way or no support. We as people of the world should just stop giving to a enity that wants and wants. I am sure everyone would love to have something in place that has everyones interest in mind. But that is not going to happen , since we as people are all different from one another. Its better to stop giving to support the worlds habit , and start looking for something that everyone would agree on. Since this is not going to happen , you say ok , how about fixing the UN , well , its beyond fixing. And I for one will not support the UN as 75 percent of its members hate the country where I happen to live.

You have shown me nothing that justifies the continued
pouring in of my money. Billions of dollars and that's all
we get?? That, and Koffi, his family, and the UN stealing
billions off the Oil for Food program. That, and up to 1/4
of all children in UN refugee camps being molested. Waste,
fraud and abuse. That's the UN motto.

Nope. It's a pile of puke. All it has is a coat of frosting on
top. You showed me a few pictures of the sugary coating.
I have shown you the rancid meat of the underneath.

So I take it you like seeing this

Or this

Or mabye this

With out anti land mine units thats ^^^ what happens....feel better about saying the UN is worthless?

Yes stealing money funny didnt the independant investigation say he was inocent oh but no that must have been rigged to..

You have shown me the actions of a few individuals...but hey if you want to call british service men and women rapists and murders fine , just dont expect them to be so friendly to you...

Your hyperbole is more deluded than usual here.
How can Koffi Annan, a man with almost no actual power whatsoever, qualify as a "tyrant?"

How is wrongdoing by a few UN troops reason to scrap the whole organization?

Using the same "logic", you could argue the entire US military ought to be disbanded because of the behavior of a few "bad apples" in Abu Ghraib.

As I said ... you showed the sugary coating. So all the billions
and billions that goes into the UN and that is stolen by the UN
is worth this one, very small, UN program? Nope.


didnt the independant investigation say he was
inocent oh but no that must have been rigged to..

Investigation? What investigation? So far there haven't been
any indepth investigations, mostly because the UN, and Koffi
himself, have been dragging their feet and hiding documents.
So no, there has not been any complete investigations done.

Very small program?
It goes into 4 continents....I dont call that "small"

Mabye the Volcker Investigation?
Yeah sure they have....BTW you do know the IGC and the US senate are investigateing as well..


But that is not going to happen , since we as people are all different from one another.

It can happen and it might happen if people got off their high horses...
So what we are all diffrent....we can stil agree...hell do you think in an international job you all come from the same town?
No...its called co-operating..



Its better to stop giving to support the worlds habit , and start looking for something that everyone would agree on.

I take it this habit is war then?
Well then it looks like asia is the only real place that can kick the habit...we sure as hell cant.
I thought we could agree on peace?
But no...there are still a few out there that would rather see thier country killing and being "strong" than in peace and being "weak"...


Since this is not going to happen , you say ok , how about fixing the UN , well , its beyond fixing.

BS the UN is no where not fixable....a complete clear top house would do it...



And I for one will not support the UN as 75 percent of its members hate the country where I happen to live.

what?
No they dont..they hate your countries forign policy...whered you get the 75% from?

I hope this is just the first phase of getting rid of the UN. Kofi should be thrown in jail, the rest kicked out of the country and the land reclaimed for some nice apartments. The UN is an embarrassing shameful organization and the sooner it is dismantled, the better.

How many children have died in the last 10 years under UN control? UNICEF now spends money on abortions instead of food.

Sorry Devilwasp , but since we have different mindsets , that is what is right and what is wrong or knowing what is right and what is wrong , we will not agree.
