    Default North Korea, king of the hill.

    C'mon...are you frickin' kidding me ?

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/06...nt-conference/

    The worlds gone nuts.
    This is akin to putting child molesters in charge of teaching kids....no,no...we've done that.

    Hmmm...how about akin to putting crooks in charge of making the rules for other crooks....no,no...we've done that too.

    How about an Arab nation in charge of womans rights....yeah,been there done that too.

    Seems to fit a pattern over at the U.N. and possibly here too.
    How can you put that North Korean nutjob in charge of anything ? I mean the guy breaks every arms agreement,every U.N. law for disarmament. If someone can explain this move to me, I'm all ears.

    time to tell the UN to pound salt and get out. While they are at it, they can give us back that prime Ney York real estate and move to Terran, where human rights are so valued.

    Don't make the UN move! Charge them rent, let's say $5B annual rent payable directly to the national debt. Now there's a revenue tactic the congressional debt committee hasn't considered.

    THe UN has no money unless we give it to them. Better to remove them from our soil, stop giving them a penny, and stop getting our bravest involved in their illegal wars. The UN is nothing but a shell game being played with our tax money.

    You're right, Keiko. The world is surreal!

    Having N.K. chair something like this is kind of like thinking the U.S. dollar has any value left as a world currency. lol

    As far as the U.N. having no cojones, there are historical reasons why NO major super power would be 'happy' if it did and why they made sure it didn't! And that includes us (U.S.A.).

    I agree.....Amen.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    Like we don't?

    We signed treaties that we would not proliferate nukes. We were doing so while ink was still wet.

    We signed a treaty that we would not develop any ballistic missile defense systems. Had our fingers crossed behind our backs on that one too. Development was moving ahead while we were on TV signing the papers. We break arms embargoes every day. Doesn't make it right but at the same time, doesn't make it any less real either.

    Kim Jeong's Ill isn't the brightest move in the world but at the same time, maybe it'll pacify him enough to think he's got some power so he'll cool his jets a bit? I'm sure that other countries are more concerned about the Middle East uprisings and the bad stuff it's doing to oil prices more so than they are about Nutjob McQuack with nothing of any value over there in North Korea.

    At least this will occupy him a bit instead of having him standing in the middle of the U.N., filibustering about how poorly North Korea is treated while ignoring his own civil rights oppression.

    We only provide 22% of the total funding to the U.N. Granted, that's no small chunk but it's far from the total amount in the U.N. budget.

    i'd hope so. but on the other hand, a new worldwide platform of recognition and "empowerment" make me cringe the opposite may be the case. but with a looney goon like him, ya never know what may make him happy.

    22%, and we are just one of 160+ members... umm yeah, that seems fair.

    Seems to me that we should OWN the UN, given all that the U.S. is asked to do. yet they continue to vote for commitee heads and such that are diametrically opposed to to the fact that we even exist as a free nation. If the member states of the UN wanted America's help to become free as well then great, keep funding. Instead, they support regimes that stone women to death for wearing something other than a burqah or percieved sin against the q'ran(Afganistan/Iran), jail women for driving a car(Saudi Arabia), deny education to women(Afganistan), slaughter newborns simply because they are born female(China/India), assemble an array of nukes rather than feed their people(North Korea), talk about America as the great satan(half the countries of the world), kill our troops when they go to deliver food(Somalia), and do every other manner of things with our 22% of their effing budget. I personally am sicked by the way my tax money is spent in support of regimes that do these barbaric things.

    Let's not even go there with the 3/4ths of a TRILLION we will give away to our other enemies as aid this year and the other TRILLION we will spend to buy their oil so that it can be spent to fund Jihaddists all over the globe.


    Time to dump the UN and form a new body. Let those that stand FOR freedom stand with us. Those that do not, can keep the UN. At least then we will know who the enemy is.

    I could, but then again it's not about fox news, can't you just deal with a story regardless of who breaks/reports it ?

    Isn't this the same idea that led us into the two World Wars? Just give him what he wants and maybe he will be content? I could be wrong, but the way I remember it, Europe tried to please Hitler on several occasions and all it did was backfire. Not saying it would do so here.
