America uses the UN to give "warnings" that they know damn well mean nothing,

The U.N. has absolutely no right to tell ANYONE what to do. The U.N. cannot tell Israel what to do, it sure as hell cannot tell America what to do and it has never been effective in telling Arabs what to do. The U.N. is a symbolic icon so that all the world may feel that every thing is going to be OK because we have sensible men talking our problems over. BS.
I think the U.N. is used as a weapon, that is the ONLY reason we still support it and keep it funded, without us it would dissolve. America uses the UN to give "warnings" that they know damn well mean nothing, they warned and warned and warned Saddam, they warn North Korea, they war Iran, they warn anyone they want to and we get up in front of the UN general assembly and we cry for peace!! We cry for peace so all the men and women of the world may think.... everything is going to be OK. It isn't, it wont, and it never has been. The UN is a JUSTIFICATION for war, simple as that, we warn say "hey dude, like um, nukes are bad mmkay? And uh, er, well you know it just isn't nice so uh, like, play nice." while we pile our troops on the border of what ever victim we seek. Think Saddam actually thought that the UN finding nothing didn't mean Bush would still attack? He saw the troops, he knew there was nothing he could do but lay the ground work for a resistance.
Israel knows this, they play the game, they where taught by the best of the best at the sleigh of hand in the world arena, America. Israel was warned, and Israel doesn't give a damn, Israel killed UN troops, I would bet they thought it was good sport to do such a thing, I mean the idiots wear baby blue helmets thinking no one will want to shoot them... no, the UN cannot do a damn thing to Israel, it has no force, a mass of nations will never agree on one thing with out argument and as long as the biggest members reap a reward (Oil for food, stabilizing war zones to profit off a stable oil resource in Africa, justification for war) there will be a UN.
Israel will never head to anyone, not even us here in the good Ole USA and we cannot expect them to because they have the exact same mentality as their enemies, the UN doesn't understand and is incapable of doing so and so they can treat the sick and wounded but it won't stop the bombs.

Well if Israel will not heed to the International community does that not mean they are a rougue state, and should be treated as such? Also then america is provideing a rouge state with arms, and their are laws set up to prevent american companies to boycott this rouge state.

Would the UN dissolve with out the United States. Well I think it could continue, but it would be so ineffective not having our troops to take care of their dirty business that they hold no leverage over "rouge" states. We are in fact the front for UN action, diplomatic and military. UN is fine at peace keeping, as long as they are not raping children. . but only after America goes and cleans the place out first.
Is North Korea required to heed to the UN? NO, is Iran? NO, was Saddam? NO.
Why did the UN mandate that Iran not have nuclear power? Because America decided Iran was a threat, yeah, and Pakistan, Sudan, China, Russia, Old Soviet Bloc, nooo they are fine, but Iran is eeevviilll.. No, it is a weapon, it targets Iran, forces it into embarrassing submission in front of the world scene to provoke Iran so we can take action. Is Israel a rouge state? In the rational view of our foreign policy yes, they are a rouge state attacking weaker states. Think is Lebanon launched this kind of assault on Israel, would we view it as them defending themselves? NO, of course we wouldn't!! Do I still support Israel? Yes!, I have not been given a reason to NOT support them.
I want to try and summarize my views here, I am not hard right leaning, more right then left, but a very straight forward view on things. The world sucks, incompetent people tend to rule the world, and of course I understand that we are viewed as the bad guys but being a bad guy then I see my self (American) as the good guy. We can say how horrible it is, we can say how we would love to save the children, we give money to charity to make us think we are making the world an OK place to be when in reality, we cant control it.
