When Iran's Ahmadinejad started throwing out crazy accusations from the UN General Assembly's podium, claiming that the United States government had organized the September 11 attacks, members of the US delegation stood up and walked out.
So also did the delegations of what the NY Times pegs at about 33 nations. That's thirty-three countries whose leaders refused to listed to the anti-American ravings of the Iranian lunatic. Nice. You could probably name all thirty-three countries pretty close to correctly just off the back of your hand.
But, wait. There are 192 member nations of the UN -- every one of whose delegations sat and listened except for the approximately 33 who stood by us (and the Israelis, who were absent due to the Jewish holiday of Succos).
Any wonder why the UN is so reliably ready to stand against us and to condemn Israel with monotonous regularity? The real wonder is why we stay in that nefarious organization and why we host it in our most prominent city.
Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
and of course --- The United States of America.
Shocker! I would have thought Obama’s appointed delegates would have applauded.
Did the other 157 delegations applaud the speech?
From what I hear the remaining U.N. goobers applauded Ahmadinejad when he was finished.
Aslso of note is that NO moosie county joined in the walk out.
But we still pay for and support the place.
Not true. Britain did.
Surprise walk out: France
Eyebrow raisers for not walking out: Japan, South Korea
So Mexico and Russia couldn’t bring themselves to leave. Guess they are with ‘them’ then. Pigs.
add Norway to that list:o(
I noticed that Mexico wasn’t among the 33 that walked out.
Good call on Mexico. Not surprising about Russia.
Good call! What’s up their ass?

True Allies, including Norway. :)
Bravo to Costa Rica. And I take it that Israel wasn’t there to begin with, so never had the option of walking out.
btw. Israel is not on the list???
Hell no. In fact, 33 more Mexicans came in as soon as those 33 left.
The UN had a time and place but it no longer exists. That is why having real leaders like George W. Bush is important. We can no longer depend on the rest of the world to do the right thing at the right time.
