    faith in the UN... going... going.... gone

    county... south Sudan (Africa)

    casualties... 3 Indian soldiers (reported) 30+ civilians

    cause... base stormed by mob

    response.... "we do not condone these actions" - UN deputy general

    other response.... oh we will send 80 more troops (yep 80) and hold a emergency meeting

    pause

    Australia telling citizens caught in trouble, get out if you can, otherwise stock up on food and water and stay indoors (another reason NOT to become nationalised)

    usaf evacuating us citizens...


    personal comments, it's ok to attack a UN refugee centre, all that will happen is 80 more troops and a stern word... WTF!!! it's a fucken refugee centre, a attack like that... should have a full response of over 1000 troops (not many I know) to enforce security in refugee camps, this is another shtf situation, proof the world doesn't give a flying fuck!! and the UN is useless as tits on a ball!!!!!

    While we spend millions to support the UN. What a waste of money. Maybe we should relocate the money back to our veterans.

    I'm not really sure where you found that tidbit of misinformation, . . . the USA (sadly) spends more money on the UN than any other contry, . . . period.

    May God bless,

    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.

    There are presently 192 member States of the United Nations and the United State makes up only 4.25% of the worlds population and yet we pay 22% of the United Nations fees.
    The U.S. still pays 25 percent of the separate peacekeeping budget.

    The U.S. arrears issue
    The UN has always had problems with
    members refusing to pay the assessment
    levied upon them under the United Nations
    Charter. But the most significant refusal in
    recent times has been that of the U.S. Since
    1985 the U.S. Congress has refused to
    authorize payment of the U.S. dues, in order to
    force UN compliance with U.S. wishes, as well
    as a reduction in the U.S. assessment. [13]
    After prolonged negotiations, the U.S. and the
    UN negotiated an agreement whereby the
    United States would pay a large part of the
    money it owes, and in exchange the UN would
    reduce the assessment rate ceiling from 25%
    to 22%. The reduction in the assessment rate
    ceiling was among the reforms contained in
    the 1999 Helms-Biden legislation, which links
    payment of $926 million in U.S. arrears to the
    UN and other international organizations to a
    series of reform benchmarks. [ citation needed ]
    U.S. arrears to the UN currently total over
    $1.3 billion. Of this, $612 million is payable
    under Helms-Biden. The remaining $700
    million result from various legislative and
    policy withholdings; at present, there are no
    plans to pay these amounts. [citation needed ]
    Under Helms-Biden, the U.S. paid $100 million
    in arrears to the UN in December 1999; release
    of the next $582 million awaits a legislative
    revision to Helms-Biden, necessary because
    the benchmark requiring a 25 percent
    peacekeeping assessment rate ceiling was not
    quite achieved. The U.S. also seeks
    elimination of the legislated 25 percent cap on
    U.S. peacekeeping payments in effect since
    1995, which continues to generate additional
    UN arrears. Of the final $244 million under
    Helms-Biden, $30 million is payable to the UN
    and $214 million to other international
    organizations. [ citation needed ]
