    Hell yes the UN is useless. They didn't enforce the resolutions against Saddam, they haven't done anything in Darfour, their peacekeepers raped their way across the Congo, seems like a waste of space to me.

    Good, because I am proud of Ronald Reagan. And we still should kick the UN out.

    No. Ronald Reagan, and other corrupt administrations like his, pushed us into becoming a Rogue State. The only reason why the UN is deemed weak by the US is because the US violates every international law ever written.

    The fact that you are proud of that shows why 9/11 happened.

    The UN was broken well before Ronald Reagan every got into office and has been broken every since. Where else but the UN could Libya be seated on a Human Rights commission?

    And what about all of the international laws France, Germany, Vietnam, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Chad, Somalia, Argentina, and others have broken? Obviously, we are not the only ones that ignore the UN when it gets stupid. How come we are the only ones that get chastized for it?

    And 9/11 happened because people like Jimmy Carter did not act forcefully when it came to the illegal acts by Iran when it seized are embassy (in violation of international law) in 1979. Didn't see the UN deal with that.

    Or how about 9/11 happened because Bill Clinton allowed people to blow up two embassies, a military barracks, and a US Navy warship without ever dealing with that? Was he waiting for the UN to hand out the justice?

    9/11 happend because a bunch of terroristic assholes thought the US was a pussy and wold roll over and die if they bombed us. They thought wrong (despite the best efforts of simpering idiots such as yourself, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.)

    You are so partisaned. You want to blame Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and refuse to shine any light on the damage that Reagan, Bush & Bush caused. Or how Nixon destroyed the Bretton Woods system.

    Jimmy Carter was negotiating with Iran and did send in Special Forces to rescue them. Bush Sr. and Reagan made a better deal with the Iranian Revolutionaries. But you are too partisan to even acknowledge that.

    The 9/11 terrorists did not think we were pussies. If they thought that, they would have invaded outright. They attacked us because of our foreign policies and military actions that have an adverse affect on the Muslims cultures...specifically, the poor.
