    Imagine a world where McCain won the election in 2008, went to the UN because Syria was being mean, lost the vote, and decided to ignore the vote and build a coalition to go after Assad anyway.

    Imagine the uproar as Bush 3 and Palin build a UN for the nice guys to attack another country.

    Don't bother imagining, just sit back and wait for the howls of media outrage as Obama starts another war.

    Seems to me the UN is a huge waste of time and money. I'd kick 'em out of NY and stop funding what is undoubtedly the world's biggest collection of thieves.

    frankly if Obama pulled a Balkans over Syria I'd cheer ( check executive order 13119 )......thats why I thought Libya was a balls up, you only get one or 2 of those.

    I don't see it as hard to imagine. Everyone has been pretty much ignoring the UN since...well i guess since it was founded.

    It's not hard to imagine a world where the UN ignores the US.
