US Withdrawal From the United Nations: Should the United States withdraw from the United Nations?

  • We are no longer getting any benefits from the UN for the money we spent. It could be used better to help Americans. Withdraw now!

    There is no fixing the U.N. It is constitutionally incapable of making anything better; it puts the bad guys in charge of making the world less bad. It is a farcical monument to conflict of interest. The U.S. pays the U.N. $8 billion every year, and covers roughly one-quarter of both the U.N.’s regular budget and its peacekeeping budget. Let’s pull out of the U.N., let it crumble, and put our $8 billion toward a new organization: a United Free Nations, whose goal will be to bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

  • What good is UN membership to the US?

    In what manner has the US benefitted from membership in the "United Nations"? We have been the MAJOR economic engine for this organization since day ONE, but how has our nation gained any semblance of respect from its other members? Rogue nations like Iran, DPRK and Russia are allowed not only to severely violate the most basic human rights of their own citizens, but also to "export" their criminal actions to other countries without any fear of reprisal from the UN!!!! These enemies of the human race and many of our so-called "Western Allies" continuously vote against any US attempts to curb UN members' corrupt and cowardly actions!
    Jerusalem was the "capitol" of the Jewish State ofr over a thousand years before Mohammad and his "obscene religion" ever existed on this planet! It was taken from the Jews by force several times by several cultures, but the so-called "United Nations" attempted to right the past wrongs by establishing a Jewish State, to be called Israel, shortly after IT was formed following the World's most costly and devastatingly evil war! It was supposed to attempt to "coerce" peaceful resolution of international conflicts and limit "man's ihumanity to his fellow man"! Just imagine where mankind could be technologically and sociologically if the resources WASTED by the the UN and its members since its formation had truly been used to improve the planet's inhabitants living standards. Just the resources consumed by the "Cold War" alone could have prevented millions of unnecessary deaths and immeasurable suffering! The UN is a busted concept!!!!!!!

  • Jerusalem Embassy will be detrimental to peace process?

    Israel is the United States most important allie. If we both agree the US embassy should be in Israel, "no country or organisation will tell us otherwise." As for the argument that this move will harm the peace process and a two-state solution, I don't think so. For my entire 56 year lifetime there has been no real peace. This move is irrelevent to peace

  • The UN is a toothless tiger that serves itself.

    The UN is a toothless tiger that serves itself. The corruption and unaccountability is second to none. The U.N. in some cases uses U.S. money to actively undermine American values and interests. We give over $ 700 million a year and in return we have our soldiers fight other country’s wars.

  • Withdrawl is long over due

    Un does not look out for out intersts. How many times has un issued resolutions against Iran? How about China? Certainly North Korea has been kept in check. What good soes the un do and why does the US hav to pay for it?

    The US could so far better things with that money.

  • The United Nations failed its main goal

    The United States of America should withdraw from the United Nations. The United Nations is an organization designed to keep peace in all countries. This was not how we evolved. Wars were, and still are necessary, and peace is never practical. Also, the United States has been involved in armed conflicts before and after they joined the UN. Before we joined, we were involved in the Mexican American and Spanish Wars. After we joined, we have been involved in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and the "War on Terror." Terrorism has spread rapidly while the UN Charter has been in effect. ISIS has been formed, the Middle East became corrupt, and terrorist attacks on US soil have only increased since the Charter went into effect. In the end, the United Nations has failed its main goal: To keep peace in the world.

  • The United Nations is impractical and a failure

    The United States of America should withdraw from the United Nations. The United Nations is an organization designed to keep peace in all countries. This was not how we evolved. Wars were, and still are necessary, and peace is never practical. Also, the United States has been involved in armed conflicts before and after they joined the UN. Before we joined, we were involved in the Mexican American and Spanish Wars. After we joined, we have been involved in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and the "War on Terror." Terrorism has spread rapidly while the UN Charter has been in effect. Al-Queda and ISIS have been formed, the Middle East became corrupt, and terrorist attacks on US soil have only increased since the Charter went into effect. In the end, the United Nations has failed its main goal: To keep peace in the world.

  • A Corrupt Institution that Gives Undeserved Voice and Respectability to Anti-Democratic States

    The list of countries that has served on the UN's so-called Human Rights Council would be a joke if the crimes those regimes committed and are committing weren't so egregious. In the UN as a whole, kleptocratic and authoritarian states get to scold and censure democratic countries and foment anti-American sentiment, bolstering phony narratives used in their domestic politics as means of legitimizing their regimes.
    The UN has CONSISTENTLY been implicated in incidents of sexual assault and other crimes wherever they send their "peacekeepers," who are essentially mercenaries with no real incentive to achieve mission objectives and rules of engagement that border on institutionalized apathy. In Rwanda, Canadian Lt. General Dallaire was prevented from taking actions that could have prevented the deaths of tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people in the genocide there. In Cambodia, the UN spent about a billion dollars setting up a deeply flawed election whose results were soon abrogated by the previous ruling party, essentially deterring any democratization efforts there for a generation- oh, and in the process, UN "peacekeepers" brought HIV/AIDS to Cambodia at a time when the country had no means to handle the epidemic, leading to a massive outbreak that took countless lives during a decade of costly medical struggle before numbers began to fall in the early 2000s.
    Kofi Annan's son was implicated in a massive corruption/graft scandal related to the Iraq Food for Oil program, and more recently, when a whistleblower exposed the extent of systematic sex trafficking and sexual abuse of underage girls by UN peacekeepers in Central African Republic, that man was fired by Ban Ki-Moon and had to go to court to clear his name and be reinstated. This just brushes the surface of the scandals that have accumulated over the years due to an atmosphere of impunity and mutual backscratching at the UN in the absence of an honest enforcement mechanism. I agree with statement made by the former UN workers who collaborated to write the book "Emergency ___ and Other Measures": "If you live in a poor country and see men in blue helmets coming in your direction, run away as fast as you can."
    There needs to be a forum for countries to resolve disputes and even ally to intervene in severe humanitarian crises, and there needs to be a way to coordinate the protection of globally significant environmental and cultural goods that might be menaced by a particular country, but this mechanism should be separate from a pseudo-governmental assembly and bloated bureaucracy that pretends to exert authority over sovereign nations and only manages to do so when taking advantage of the most vulnerable developing countries.

  • America was founded by people seeking freedom from government oversight and oppression

    Our country was founded by God fearing people who wrote the constitution based on biblical principles the Bible was the primary book used in teaching children. As this country has moved further from the original blueprint the Constitution our country has been in a steady decline. We do not need others or a one world government to dictate what our government or citizenry should do or not do. Let 's get back to what made America great a God fearing nation and the Constitution, the Bill Of Rights and The Federalist Papers.

  • Time to exit

    Too many recent deals and treaties and agreements subverting our sovereignty and constitution. It is way past time to leave!
    Foreign non citizens have no business telling ANY country what to do in their own borders.
    The troops need to be removed from our soil. Ths is an occupying force!

  • America Should NEVER withdraw itself from the United Nations

    Because we would Officially and Historically become the most hypocritical nation on the face of this planet. My Grandfather Did Not Fight in WW2 only to have all of his work flushed down the toilet simply because American's don't like being told how to behave with other Nation/States. Not only is this a threat to the sovereignty of nation/states who only exist because of the United Nations; but this is a threat to the very right's of sovereignty of All Human Beings On Earth if there were to ever be a mass withdrawal from the United Nations.

  • Putting our safety at risk

    Removing the United States from the UN Security Council is a huge mistake. Many of the terrorists that our country has stopped, in one way or another, came from intelligence of member nations of the United Nations Security Council. There may be a short term savings when you take away United States aid from foreign operations. However, in the long term, that money which is saved will be spent on trying to fight terrorism on our own. Stay in the United Nations please.

  • The US absolutely should not withdraw from the United Nations.

    The mission of the UN is to secure the best possible future for ALL of its member nations. As a member, the US has invaluable influence and entitlements when it comes to world affairs. To surrender its place on the council simply because a certain group of citizens fail to accurately put our position into context would be both ignorant and self destructive. The US is indeed an important world power and with that power comes a significant responsibility. Attempting to dodge that responsibility is unrealistic and shortsighted egoism.

    Look at the situation the UK finds itself in now. Running away is not the answer to any problem.

  • Permanent member of the Security Council

    The USA is a permanent member of the Security council.. Being the leader of multiple international coalitions, such as the anti-ISIL coalition. Leaving the United Nations would be detrimental to both domestic and foreign interests. Diplomacy would be much more difficult. International politics would be turned on its head. All in all, leaving the UN is a bad idea, and the US should stay.

  • No I don't think so

    It is a permanent member of the UN just so you all know but the UN is important. The US is a very valuable member of the United Nations so it must stay. If it doesn't, it might not be recognised as a real country by some countries. Look at Taiwan.

  • The US shouldn't withdraw from the UN.

    The UN is a very valuable organization that the US has been a part of since its inception. If the US were to just leave the organization that it has been a part of for such a long time, it would throw the world into chaos. The US is a permanent member of the security council as well, so that would be a hard loss for everyone.

  • The US should not withdrawal from the United Nations.

    It is not in the United States best interest to withdraw from the United Nations. They United Nations is a security that we can not afford to be without. The United Nations acts like a team to help out other nations in trouble. Right now some of the nations in the United Nations are in need of assistants but who knows when it could be the United States in there position.
