It has outgrown it's charter and is no longer an entity that helps our nations come together for the common good.

Thank you for putting this thread together
Many people believe the UN to be a useless organization with no pull whatsoever, but they are more dangerous than most people think. They have their hands dipped into every thing, and the globalists use the UN and it's perceived good intentions to forward their agenda on various fronts.
They are an important piece of the puzzle and that is for certain.
While it would appear to be a rather simple matter to determine how many countries there are in the world, it is in fact quite complex. This is due not only to the ever-shifting political landscape, but also because the term ‘countries’ is somewhat fluid and open to interpretation.
A narrow definition of what a country is might look at a well-established group – such as the United Nations – and take its list of recognized members. In the case of the United Nations, there are 193 recognized states, with 192 being members of the United Nations, and the Vatican City, which is a permanent observer with all rights of a member, save voting rights.
There are 196 countries in the world today.
Unless you don't count Taiwan…
Taiwan is not considered an official country by many, which would bring the count down to 195 countries. Although Taiwan operates as an independent country, many countries (including the U.S.) do not officially recognize it as one. Because the People's Republic of China considers Taiwan a breakaway province of China, countries who wish to maintain diplomatic relations with China have had to sever their formal relations with Taiwan (more than 100 countries, however, have unofficial relations with Taiwan).
How many countries belong to the United Nations?
192 countries are UN members. The exceptions are Taiwan (in 1971, the UN ousted Taiwan and replaced it with the People's Republic of China) and Vatican City. Kosovo is not yet a member. The newest UN members are Switzerland (2002) and Montenegro (2006).

Ok, you're going have to expound a bit more on your OP. You are vilifying the UN, so I had to check to see how many countries there are in the world, and how many belong to the EVIL UN. Surely the US, China, France, and Japan are members, but who else?
So darn near EVERY country in the world belongs to the UN. Given your premise, your secret shadow government actually compromises every country in the world!
Talk about NWO. Talk about despair. It's a world wide collaboration on a global scale.
So is the UN bringing about a NWO? That's what I want to know.
The United Nations or 'UN' was set up after WW2 and Hitler in an effort to stop anyone else trying to take over the world. The goals of the UN include: Trying to take over the world, corruption, prostitution, pedophilla, taxing the air, pedophobia, people trafficking, dikephobia, war, famine, genocide, and failing to actually fix anything when they had the chance.
Former present UN Secretary Kofi Annan (the dude that looked like Morgan Freeman) firmly denied charges that the organization was corrupt and pointless, often pointing out that the UN Coat of Arms is identical to that of the Soviet Union (see right), and that David Rockefeller personally paid for the UN head quarters building using his own money, and that he arranging the builders to build the building. As such everything will be just fine.
The motto of the UN is "Standing proud in complacency", which replaced the less catchy "Good intentions, bad results" in 1996. Its current mission is: "To foster the growth of the world's bureaucracies while developing innovative methods for our member nations to disguise corruption as humanitarian aid". This is quite a departure from its founding principal of "Allowing third world idiots to park on the streets of your town wherever they damn well please".
There are 452 Members in the United Nations. Although Article 192(A)(1)(ii)(f) of the strongly worded Constitution states that all Members are equal, the opinions of 5 of the Members are the most important. These 5 members are (in alphabetical order): the United States of America, the Kingdom of McDonalds, the Central African Republic, Angelina Jolie and Slobodan Milosevic. The latter two, although not being eligible for membership in the UN, were invited to join by the Former Present UN Secretary after popular demonstrations in the overpopulated Island State of Nauru. "Democracy everywhere (at our discretion)" is the internal motto of the Members of the United Nations.
2000_UNESCO_REDEFINE_FAMILY.--UNESCO's, "World Core Curriculum"
UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, was established in 1945 to disseminate educational, cultural and scientific materials deemed essential for establishing toleration and peace. During the Reagan administration, the U.S. pulled out of UNESCO, charging the agency with rampant waste and fraud, and a hard-left pro-Soviet slant. Sharing many of these concerns, Great Britain also withdrew from UNESCO at about the same time.
Prior to his decision to rejoin UNESCO, President Bush reached out to social conservatives, and was warned that many groups were increasingly concerned with UNESCO's ongoing support of the UN's radical social agenda. UNESCO collaborates with the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and its main Non Government Organization (NGO) partner, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). In line with these groups, UNESCO now advocates for reproductive health services for children. In UN parlance, reproductive health services includes abortion. For instance, one UNESCO document praises Thailand's provision of abortion-causing "emergency contraceptives" to children as an "innovative strategy."
UNESCO is also a proponent of the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights, a document written by UNAIDS and the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights. The document calls on governments to ensure a right to safe and legal abortion, to legalize same-sex marriages, to legalize prostitution, and to provide graphic sexual and homosexual education to children. The document also seeks the establishment of "criminal penalties" for people engaged in speech construed to be a "vilification" of homosexuality.
In the name of AIDS-reduction, UNESCO has fully embraced reproductive and sex education. In concert with UNAIDS and UNFPA, UNESCO has created curricula that many social conservatives would believe undermine parental authority, show disdain for traditional cultures and religious worldviews, and introduce dishonesty into education. A great deal of UNESCO's other educational materials fall squarely in the camp of political correctness, endorsing liberal stances on such issues as gender and environmentalism.
In 1982, the UN (UNESCO) adopted Robert Muller's World Core Curriculum as a model for all nations to follow. Robert Muller, former United Nations Assistant Secretary General, wrote the "World Core Curriculum." Broadly speaking, the World Core Curriculum is a tetrahedron based on 4 primary components:
Our Planetary Home and Our Place in the Universe,
Our Place in Time,
The Family of Humanity, and
The Miracle of Individual Life.
Muller, adopted ideas for his Curriculum from questionable philosophies espoused by the founders of the Theosophical society in pre-revolutionary Russia. The objective of Muller's Curriculum is to produce an egalitarian society, working cooperatively, in harmony, without competition or strife, and without individual thought or opinion.
More significantly, the Curriculum advocates taking away the student's early childhood and family influence--replace it with a "global family." He suggests that education of a child should start at birth and be oriented to the "macrocosm" and that early family influences somehow promote "an egocentric mind set" and will result in a negative or undesirable outcome. In other words, the influence of the traditional family must be abolished for the good of society. Our modern Outcome Based Education curriculums and the U.S. Goals 2000 closely resemble the guidelines of the World Core Curriculum.
Recognizing the fact that under "Treaty (or Convention) Law" America's participation in UNESCO brings with it the "treaty requirement" that America adopt and implement UNESCO's World Core Curriculum.
