Right. Got it. Agreement. There is nothing remotely legally binding. At any time, any reason, any country can ignore/not honor the agreement. There is nothing that can be done about it, not even in the Hague.

I don't disagree with you, but there is no law. We are within our legal right to disallow entry to the USA. We can not however disallow entry to the UN. The UN building, and land, is International territory, it does not belong to the USA.
I believe I stated that several times already. by the full weight of the US government we agreed to "expeditiously approve visas for foreign delegations seeking to do legitimate diplomatic business at the United Nations."

I already posted this also.

is there any other fact you would like me to reiterate?

Absolutely we can go "back on our word" and cede the land back to the USA. What would that accomplish? UN would just relocate. We can not be expelled from the UN, we are one of the 6 standing members. We would be complete a$$es and have zero respect or authority in the world too.
HUH?!?

I'm amazed how how stupid Bachmann really is. She could have just said - "opponents, please wipe the dirt with me". I guess she's trying to appeal to the redneck vote. Everyone hates Ahmablowjob but there is no way he will be banned, he does that and US reps will be banned from dozens of consulates around the world.

I'm convinced she really doesn't know sht from shinola

OK, I may have missed that in the thread you two were having. Again it is an agreement and it does not guarantee approval for a visa or entry to the USA. As you quoted, it is an agreement to "expeditiously" approve visas, nothing implied guaranteeing entry to the USA. We can deny any one at any time for any reason from entering the USA, even if they are coming to the UN, or an Embassy. However, we can not deny anyone from entering the UN, that is the jurisdiction of the UN.

Of course we would look bloody damm foolish and be under severe criticism the world over (as in 1987) if we refuse a diplomat entry to the USA so that they can enter the UN.

Do you think this was just put out with a handshake? The UN charter was signed by the president and the legislature. yes, it is legally binding.

We need to occasionally remind the public why the US opposes a nulcear program in Iran. What better way to do that than to broadcast a speech by Ahmadinejad on CNN.

The U.N. is insignificant and it's time some other country housed their heaquarters.
See if these supposed foreign dignitaries are allowed to run wild with diplomatic immunity in Iran,Cuba or Iraq.
Thats some prime real estate the big apple could put to a lot better use.

What is the purpose of Ahma-midget-mad talking at the UN?
Does he hope to create doubt?

He certainly justifies peoples dislikes for Iran.

Lots of diplomats from the UN running wild in this country, Brad?

Why do you feel a governing body where the leaders of this world's countries can get together is insignificant?

When the chief of the UN Human Rights Council represents a nation that can't even define human rights,I think it's a problem and therefore deem the entire organization insignificant.

You can't tell this buffon anything. This azz would stick up for the devil if he was invited to the UN. Wait he was already and yet mr Socialist has yet to condem anything that the midget said today. Hell all the miget did was spout the same old BS that most Socialist say anyways. Hell they write the midet speech for him.

Being a member of the UN does not open a country's borders to anyone who wants to walk in.

Wouldn't killing hundreds of thousands of civilians in a campign not sanctioned by the UN be a human rights violation?

I wonder what country invaded, and then occupied a soverign nation for 10 years or so?
I know there is some country that has done such an act. I'm sure that country feels justified in their actions because of some horrific attack on their soil.

There is some other country that has been holding people prisoner, some as many a 10 years without even charging them with anything. They just locked them up on foreign soil, and interogate them harshly for years.
That country had better watch out what the rest of the world thinks of them. This kind of action could result in a faltering economy.
I wish I could remember which country would do such horrible things in response to a terrorist attack?

How many "HONEST" Mexican's are living ILLEGALLY in the US ?

Latin definition of "HONEST" does not conform to the Webster's definition.

Ahmadenijad gave a speech to nearly an empty room.

Canadian UN delegation were the first to walk out, then so many others followed.

Ahmadenijad--the Iranian mental midget.

Wonder if the Norweigian delegation stayed and listened to him like the last time? Seems the left wing Norweigian govt likes people like Ahmadenijad.

The only thing that invaded an area with out reason were the crabbs that your mother gave you. Now take your rag head back to Iraq or whatever Mulims towel head country you came from! They declared war and we fought back and now that you are getting your azz kicked you don't like it.
