Hey, Helen, please read this great article by Phyllis Chesler today at Pajamas Media.
Ms. Chesler writes "...the UN is built on a lie: that its diplomats are morally decent."
"The Wilsonian-influenced ideals of the UN are not realistic or realizable. In turn, the UN is predicated on the myth — nay, the lie — that UN diplomats and civil servants are morally upright, fair, decent, rational — and, not the vicious tyrants, bullies, thugs, liars, egomaniacs, cowards, and grifters that they truly are. Nor does the UN have a transparent system in place that would hold their mightily flawed personnel accountable for the crimes they commit." Read the full article for the FACTS and EVIDENCE Ms. Chesler presents - powerful stuff.
She calls America "The Chief Subsidizer of UN Rapists and Traffickers" and asks "Why is the United States funding rapists, criminals, pimps, brothels, and sex traffickers? Why are we funding orgies? Why are we funding the most heinous betrayal of the world’s most vulnerable civilians in war zones? Why are we overpaying for UN peacekeeping?"
"According to the UN peacekeeping website, the budget for the fiscal year 1 July 2011-30 June 2012 is approximately seven billion dollars. The United States is responsible for 27 percent of this cost, or about two billion. This is far more than what Japan (1 billion), the UK (591 million), China (285 million), Spain (230 million), or Korea (164 million) pays for peacekeepers. Interestingly, under President Barack Obama’s administration, the United States overpaid its share of the UN peacekeeping budget. In fact, our overpayment of 287 million dollars is more than what most of the world’s supporters — including China — pay for “peacekeeping.”
Why indeed. So what is the answer Helen? No answer? You just want a paycheck and a false "feel good" job, eh? I think Phyllis just found 2 billion the USA can save, too...! So, get the USA out of the UN and the UN out of the USA = SAVE MONEY!
