Skip to comments.Koffi Annan...The US isn't doing enough....

Just watching our socialist CBC network up here in Canukistan, and Koffi Annan says that the US has spent way more money on the war on terror and not enough on AIDS. What? 15 billion that Bush committed isn't enough?? What did Clinton give? Let's see some of the other countries step up to the plate. Canada gave 100 million, but Annan won't say anything about us here because we bow at the UN alter. Bush should ask the UN to use some 'oil for food' money that they have on hand...
Amazing that Annan even dare to show himself in public.
What has the UN done for anybody, ever?
Palestinians and other terrorists not included.
Tell him to get back to us after about 10 years, 14 resolutions, and 300,000 to a million people have passed. It was good enough for Iraq, wasn't it?
AIDS is not our problem.
For once I agree with Annan. Bush hasn't done enough.
He should drop kick that son of a ----- and the United Nations right through the Gibralter straights! We should be so lucky to have them meet the same fate as Atlantis and it's citizens.
BTW, for all the hot air hissed around abouts regarding AIDS, not one of these do-gooder peckerheads has had the gonads to mention that it's a cummunicable disease, and should have been treated that way from the very beginning. May C. Everett Koop and the powers that be at the CDC at the time, rot in hell for their inaction that cost many lives.
How much has Ghana given. George Soros has given millions to defeat George Bush how much has he given in fact how much has the Tides Foundation given.What we should do is withdraw from the UN and give that money to Aids research in this country.
Maybe its time the UN did something worthy. What have they done except mess things up wherever they go.
Please go to www.UNHCR.ch or www.UNICEF.org Thanks for your interest in the work of the United Nations organization.
I wonder if Benon Sevan became a billionaire by pocketing all that change we used to collect on Halloween for UNICEF.
Almost entirely paid for by the United States, and the tax dollars collected from her citizens.
Nice try, but no cigar.
So let's try again....what has the UN accomplished?
1. Standing by while genocide occurs in Rwanda.
2. Continuing to foul up the situation concerning the former Yugoslavia, and conducting only a farce of a trial for Slobodan Milosevic.
3. Not giving a damn about the Israeli women and children who are attacked simply for existing, yet being all too concerned about the rights of the Palestinian thugs who kill them.
4. Allowed itself to be composed of a large proportion of totalitarian regimes who use UN pussyfooting for no reason other than to vex the United States.
Next time, hold your sarcasm until I ask for it.
Oh, let's not forget the Oil for Food scandal. Shame on me for not including it.
So you think one should abolish UNHCR, UNICEF, UNESCO just because the political section is corrupt? Just by the way, don´t you think that other free states are paying for the UN as well? Just look at Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Netherlands, Italy, Spain who alltogether pay more to the UN than the rest of the member states. The US pay 25% of the UN budget. I call that hardly "entirely paid for by the US". I´m serious: the UN is important, though I fully agree that it needs a reform.
I do not believe that my country should continue to fund an overwhelmingly corrupt organization (you yourself admit it is corrupt) for the sake of a small handful of programs which are thus corrupt by their very nature of being run by the UN, and which could just as easily exist in bodies outside of the UN.
The United States already gives plenty of aid directly to underdeveloped countries every year, outside of what it has to provide to the UN.
I can't say I have a problem with the abolition of the UN. However, I would settle for the United States simply leaving the UN and allowing it to more completely devote itself to worthless talk so that your country and other talk-and-no-action states can feel good about themselves.
Even 15 billion can't make them keep it in their grass skirt.
If I was Kofi Kake with the biggest scandal in the world I'd keep my mouth shut about what "others" should do
What did France give? Iran?
