The U.N. is a waste of U.S. taxpayers money. Boot the U.N. out of the U.S. Let them meet in China or maybe Iran.

Ofen more can be accomplished behind closed doors. Without glare of news reporters and others distorting facts, or forcing one side to look bad and lose face is where real progress is made.

Thanks for the tip. But, the United Nations headquarters must move to another country. The whole thing is too expensive for the United States to keep footing the bill. BTW, How much of that military budget is funneled to the UN peacekeeping forces for equipment and supplies?

Looks like another good budget cut to me.
