    Has the United Nations outlived any usefullness it once may have had?

    I am shocked but not surprised by the level of corruption that is being hidden by Crime Lord Anan and his henchmen. How can one expect an allegedly democratic organization actually be honest and democratic when so much of its membership is made up of countries that are neither? The Oil-for-Food Scandal and the stonewalling by the UN of the Senate investigation is just one more example of how the UN is failing to live up to its charter.

    I challenge anyone to name one successfully completed UN mission. Every single one I could find is either still going on, was never resolved, or ended with the UN tucking its tail and running.

    I suggest that a sign be hung on the NYC headquarters UN building saying "Approved Terrorist Target"

    Whether we stay in or leave i dont think its going to change much our policies. I think it would be fun to watch Bush pull out of the UN. i say that just because i know every Democrat in Congress would be complaining about it when most Americans see it as irrelevant.

    I think the UN as a body needs to be severely overhauled or outright scrapped.

    There is a need to have an international body, but this one has become absolutely corrupt and has as much relevance today as the League of Nations was prior to WWII.

    We should withdraw from the UN and begin work on a new and improved body. I think once the USA withdraws from the UN citing a long list of corruptions and scandals, other relevant nations will follow suit.

    France, Germany and China will scream bloody murder, which I personally would glean great satisfaction from.
