    I concur. We should only contribute American Taxpayer Money for strictly Humanitarian efforts. But not current "Humanitarian" efforts like bombing & killing Libyans. Because i see nothing Humanitarian about slaughtering Libyans. The contributions should definitely be cut down. Feeding & Clothing those in need is certainly a worthy cause but obviously we've gone well past that. Time for change.

    Now we're just doubling-down on a very bad bet. Real cuts need to happen.

    It does seem that way at this point. Funding a Foreign Organization which is working against the best interests of of the U.S. makes no sense. I would be ok with only funding strictly Humanitarian efforts like feeding,clothing,and housing. Nothing else though. The UN just isn't an entity working for our best interests here in the U.S. Therefore funding should be cut dramatically.

    Thank you, ignorant adventurist myopic arrogant ugly 'Merican Pub dupes LOL. Quiz: what modern country gives the least per capita in foreign aid, by far? What party ruined the League of Nations, leading to WWII (not to mention starting the Great Depression- ditto!). How many trillion dollars would dumbazz pubs have saved in Iraq if they listened to the UN?
