Should The UN Be Moved To A Neutral Location? Out Of The U.S., But With One Caveat...
4/8/2014 | Laissez-Faire Capitalist

Posted on 04/08/2014 12:53:03 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

The U.S. has already signaled that Iran's UN envoy pick is a no-go - and for VERY good reason. At the same time we are being entangled in these disputes; we do so and are to some degree continuing this because the UN is on U.S. grounds.

The statement "get the U.S. out of the UN and the UN out of the U.S." has been oft-repeated...so here is a possible solution - with one caveat.

The UN is moved to neutral territory (if at all possible), so we don't have to shell out a significant chunk for its operating expenses.

As for the caveat: no nation has any say-so on any person that any country picks for its envoy to the UN.

We get to pick whomever we want, but so does everyone else. The UN is out of the U.S. to boot. Can't beat that... Nutral location: not likely, but perhaps possible.

Neutral location? Like the moon? Or Antarctica?

The best place to move the UN is to the “ash heap of history”.

It’d make sense to put the UN on an island that would then be ceded to the UN.

Hans Island would be ideal as this act would also resolve a long running dispute between Denmark and Canada.

We have heard: “Get the U.S. out of the UN and the UN out of the U.S.” I agree with this sentiment.

The getting the U.S. part out is the easier of the two. But where can we find a neutral location? I seriously doubt its possible, but maybe not.

I recommend a location in central Africa and removal of all UN offices and personnel from the United States.

They should just have a web site for the UN with 2 staffers and do everything by video conference. No additional infrastructure necessary and it would still be a waste of money.

I recall someone threatening to move the UN away from here during the Reagan years. Ronnie’s response was, “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

I propose central greenland.

They could use the money, and all those ambassadors and global orgs won’t have such luxury and fun as they have in NYC.

I LIKE that idea ...

What if the UN was situated on an island and it was it's very own nation !

UNistan

They could develop their own police force and fire department ... hell, they could even have a congress to vote money for themselves !!

They can have the knotted gun as a parting gift from us.

Move it to Brussels. They’ll be kept busy fighting with the EU over who gets the best alcohol and prostitutes, and won’t have much time left to screw up the world. :)

Or how about we put it on a small isolated island.

Maybe on a giant derek on the sea somewhere. Maybe in a space station. Maybe if they jettison it far enough, it wouldn’t come back.

The UN should be in a countryless location.
I suggest Antarctica and that we should stop all US money going to it.

That way they can live day-to-day with the consequences of their failures and the nation of Haiti can get some much needed cash...

Put the SOB’s on a cruise liner and have them sail the world. That way they are long gone can sail to be a close to the next ‘hot spot’ as possible.

Also NYC could really use a break from them.

What did Canada ever do to you?

Nothing. I was simply providing the Canadians with a passive aggressive means of poking the Danes in the eye:

Hans Island? You mean the place we gave to the UN for their new headquarters? Sure, we imagine you can press a claim with the General Assembly and we're sure they'll be very fair about it, too.

I'd vote for ceding the island of Shemya to the UN.

Let them set up shop on their very own island in the Aleutians.
