    I'm certain that I'm not the only one to agree with the following answer:

    To answer the title question as succinctly as possible only requires two words – Not Much.

    The explanation that follows @ http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/71106#When:10:31:11Z states the obvious. How long will the USA continue to contribute to this farce?

    A typical isolationist response.

    (What would one expect from someone who gets their "news" from a right wing blog that pretends to be international news?)

    Out of one side of the conservative mouth, they expect the UN to act as if it were a military power.

    Out of the other, they claim that the UN is a secret tool of the mythical new world order.

    In reality, the UN has played a key role in preventing local conflicts, facilitating trade, spreading technology, particularly in the areas of agriculture and health care.

    You may not have noticed that there has not been a major war between major military powers on this planet since 1945, either, which is almost certainly the longest interval in world history.

    The United Nations has also been heavily involved with multiple sexual abuse scandals in various countries.

    It yields steady jobs to the blacker sheep among the progeny of various third world dictators.

    The U.N. siphons off money from the United States treasury. But then many people and countries accomplish the same thing. Those who work 40 hours a week should take a part-time job to get the country out of debt :smile:
