    The conference is all moonbat bull$h*t, they know the USA will not stand for it . The only reason to have it is to be able to point to the USA and blame its obstruction for every killing field in the world .

    right on! But I do believe alot of funding comes from the US, so if they say no, it might make this initiative wither and die finally!

    I sort of hope they pass their agenda. Then maybe we will finally do what we should have done years ago: 1) cut off all funding to the UN; 2) withdraw from the UN; and 3) demand that the headquarters be moved to a safer location like Paris, Havana, Pyongyang, or Tehran.

    The illicit trade in small arms and light weapons can be exacerbated by the unregulated possession of small arms and light weapons by civilians not part of responsible military and police forces.
    And who is the "responsible military" other than us and the UK. How many third world military are committing a lot of these crimes against humanity. Do they think these same people would not sell a gun to make a buck.

    Keep up the good work Mr. Joseph.

    We do IMHO NOT need to withdraw from the UN. I belive we need to stay right where we are at as a permanent member of the security council ( the sharp tip of the marble so to speak ) . What we do need to do is withdraw all funding for the un , and then go back and fund only projects we explicitly approve of and then only on a pro rated basis with costs shared equally by all nations that approve of said measure on a case by case basis . Also I belive we should charge the UN for any use of US assets ( troupes , transportation , warehousing , ect. ) and subtract said monies owed from our contribution , billing them for the balance . Just my wild eyed opinion but i belive that would be a lot more fun , and a lot more productive ( dont forget that veto power we have on the unsc ) than the momentairy satusfaction of telling them which hell to go to .

    The other side of the coin is that if the US is not in the UN they have nothing to talk about and no one to complain about. Well, with the exception of Israel and that is no fun because they know that Israel could care less what the UN has to say about them. The only reason for the UN's existence any more is to complain about the US and try to pass resolutions condemning the US. It's fun because they know that the US will just sit there and take it most of the time. It makes them feel like big shots to talk about the US and condemn the US. They realize that the US could without working up a sweat destroy each one of them, and they realize that the US won't do it because we are a bunch of nice guys. The US exiting the UN would put the fear into most of them because at that point they would no longer be sure just what the US might do. Do you think that the neutron bomb in the hands of the country that just told the UN to go take a hike would not have most of the countries in this world trying to find a hole to climb into?

    Not gonna happen, but I can dream can't I?

    I think any of the above situations are better than what we are currently doing now... funding this stuff because no one else will and dying for the cause that no one else will send troops to.

    Sweetness!

    Personally, I'd love to see Trump buy the U.N. and turn it into a Casino.

    Yay - love it - that'd work just fine for me. The UN Building would then become another Trump Towers
