Have you been inside this building and seen the general assembly room?  It’s about the size of a small basketball court

  1. Why do you think it’s a size of a small basketball court?

    It a reflection of how ineffective and irrelevant the U.N. is.

    What purpose does it serve?
    Can it prevent wars?
    Can it prevent disasters?
    How much power does it really have?
    What about their peacekeepers? They might as well deploy mannequins in uniforms instead.

    It’s more of a physical public forum where rogue countries like Venezuala and Zimbwabe can come in and bitch all they like thinking that they’re part of something awesome.

    It’s a shitty organization, it’s using up my tax dollars, do you know how much we Americans have to pay security for diplomats and ambassadors that come over to the U.N.?

    Fuck you Woodrow Wilson and F.D.R. for thinking about this crap idea in the first place.

  2. US yearly contributions to the UN: $3 billion
    www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/rls/24236.htm

    # 51.4% of the World Food Program budget to help feed 72 million people in 82 countries.*
    # 17.1% of the United Nations Children’s Fund budget to feed, vaccinate, educate and protect children in 162 countries.*

    Compared to other crap my tax money gets spent on, I don’t think the UN is such a bad deal.

  3. the inside seemed rather fusty to me..

    @deabeetus
    ah, are you what they call an “american idiot”?

  4. Yeah, achieving goals like the elimination of smallpox is gay.

    Christ, read a book.

  5. kinda funny just to sit back and think

    Of all the countries in the world, some have gone into space, landed on the moon (so they say)and have electric everywhere you look, and then others…are still in the jungle fucking the monkeys.

  6. Along with smallpox and feeding starving people, like those dudes said, and providing clean water and basic infrastructure (which by the way, is the only effective way to fight terrorism), the United Nations provides and standardizes virtually every economic measure we have (how to measure GDP and such). Those measures are almost universally accepted (only Mauritania and Burma don’t like em, if I remember). Essentially, everything we know about the world economy comes from the UN.

    I know the American right and the Brits have been a bit sour about the UN, because *waaaaaa someone disagreed with us but had no power whatsoever to stop it and wouldn’t give us extra money and troops in spit of us being the richest most powerful country in the world waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa’.

    What you have to remember, crackers, is that the UN General Assembly is pretty much just a place where diplomats can make official statements, and nothing more. No one is obliged to give you money or people to kill. Nor is anyone obliged to disagree with you. If you’re the richest most powerful country in the world, use some of your own money and fucking troops. And if some foreign diplomats don’t agree with you in the freest country in the history of the freedom of the free world free speach free conscience everyone is jelous of our freedoms, don’t go on a huge spaz just because someone disagrees with you, and talk about UN reform and banning the word ‘French Fries’ in the Senate. Sit in the corner and suck your thumb till you can learn to be a fucking man, you infantile, inbred cracker.

  7. Oh, yeah, and if you get elected chairman of the UN on Civ3 you automatically win. That fucking rocks.

  8. @ diabeetus:
    shut up

    @ Caio:
    Cracker? ….(sigh)

  9. Caio stole my Civ4 joke idea.
    However, I still have a bike.

  10. And the U.N. un-nazied the world forever!

  11. Yeah… never mind that the U.N. came after WW2.

  12. @HappyPig

    You don’t need some ineffective organization like the UN to carry out the elimination of smallpox.

    The only thing that I get from reading all these comments is the same ideology that I got from Woodrow Wilson with his plan for creating the League of Nations.

    Remember that the LoN was very ineffective and the UN was the descendent of that. But still, the UN is ineffective.

    It’s all talk and no walk. The only reason why you guys are bitching against America is that we have so much power, so the UN is the only way that other inferior countries can feel that they are at least equal to America.

  13. the UN is just a stop on the path to the New World Order.

    i know, i know, i’m fucking retarded and a hillbilly. only hillbillies and conspiracy nuts believe in that.

    everyone knows there is no such thing as a Global movement to put us all under One World Government.

    and this certainly isn’t their website here:
    www.worldparliamentgov.net/

    and they certianly dont have a Constitution for the Federation of Earth here:
    www.worldparliamentgov.net/constitution.html

    and you most certianly cannot view the timeline on how they have worked on it since 1958 here:
    www.worldparliamentgov.net/history.html

    World Constitution and Parliament Association

    and you can’t go here to sign the “Individual Ratification and Petition for the Constitution for the Federation of Earth”:
    www.worldparliamentgov.net/form_sign_constitution.html

  15. @natedog, a bullshit website with half of its links broken and no backing from legitimate sources is not proof of a conspiracy. Their email is a qwest account.
