The United Nations is a failure


Mitt Romney said today that the United States should get out of the United Nations. I totally agree. He pointed out that the UN Human Rights Council has repeatedly condemned Israel while taking no action against nations with repressive regimes. Yep, that’s been my observation as well. He said, “The United Nations has been an extraordinary failure of late. We should withdraw from the United Nations…”

Actually he said we should withdraw from the UN Human Rights council, but the US is already boycotting that group because of its abysmal record. The council was established last year as a successor to an equally stupid UN Commission on Human Rights which elected terrorist states to lead it. President Bush said that the United States would not participate in the Council but would support it financially.

I guess that’s good politics but why we do it I don’t know. Maybe to appease the nations who want to feel they are doing something important. The UN has no teeth, nor do any of its councils or commissions. We practically pay the entire budget of the United Nations each year so they can insult and criticize us.

What do you think? Should the US get out of the UN?
