Again, I don't think that we should get out of the UN, for its many faults, but I do think it is time to get out of some of the associated commissions such as the Disarmament Commission, which welcomed Saddam's Iraq, and the Human Rights Commission, chaired by Libya.
Get US Out has been a common refrain of the John Birch Society and its conspiracist organ, The New American, for years. They're the same outfit that say that William F. Buckley Jr. and Jeane Kirkpatrick are part of the world government conspiracy, the New World Order.
It's about time! UN stands for United Nations and we are only united when another country needs us; not when we need them. Let's get OUT!
The UN has its faults, but the world needs a forum for nations to peaceably address their issues rather than going to war.
The US needs to take the plank out of its own eye before it starts finger-pointing and stop treating the UN like an adjunct to US foreign policy when it says 'yes' to the US and an irrelevance when it says 'no'. Woodrow Wilson would be turning in his grave.
Yours in Christ
You're absolutely right, Matt Black, a lot of people would be turning over in their graves - if they knew what the UN had turned in to.
