In Case You Hadn't Already Realized (33 out of 192 UN countries walked out on Ahamadinejad's speech)
American Thinker ^ | 09/25/2010 | Richard N. Weltz

Posted on 09/25/2010 10:55:28 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

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.

Shocker! I would have thought Obama’s appointed delegates would have applauded.

Mexico stayed around, in effect siding with the Iranians. I hope the members of Congress who applauded the president of Mexico as he abused our hospitality and attacked the people of Arizona in the Capitol, have taken note. Bit by bit, Mexico is becoming a defacto enemy of the USA, with its government actually facilitating and encouraging the violation of our borders by people traffickers, dope smugglers, and mobs of law-breaking illegals.

Well only because you don´t walk out does not necessarily mean that you agree with this speech. but of course it would haven been a nice gesture if they had walked out too.

Bravo to Costa Rica. And I take it that Israel wasn’t there to begin with, so never had the option of walking out.

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.

If the Catholics of Mexico think the Muslims will make good masters, they’d better hope they never get the chance to be proven very, very wrong.

Next time they Pearl Harbor us or get invaded, we should be “too polite” when we either nuke them back to the stone age or let them get overrun and conquered.

yep. i´m pretty shure those 33 countries contribute about 80-90% of the UN budget. i guess if japan and korea had joined too we would have had more then 98% because all this countries on this list pretty much sum up most of the so called western world.

Poland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia...I love my ancestor’s peoples.

Why is this little piece of camel excrement even allowed into this country? They’re still holding two Americans prisoner. Oh, I miss President Reagan. He’s put this dung beetle in his place.

Only Latin American country that joined the walkout was Costa Rica. I'm rather surprised that Columbia and Chile stuck around.

Also interesting that India, Thailand, and the Philippines stayed to listen as well.

Significant and troublesome Muzzie minorities in all three countries. If they had left there would likely be protests and maybe riots and deaths.

“Interesting, not one South American country, nor Mexico.”

Typical is more like it. The only interest they have in the USA is what they can bleed out of us. And we fall for it every time. Mexico has consistently voted against us in the UN.

Spot on. I will never visit Mexico or spend one cent there. The two go together I suppose.

I noticed no Latin country south of our boarder other than Costa Rica walked out as much as my and your tax money without we the people’s permission is thrown at them so the rich political thieves can get richer in these countries.

I want my tax money to stay in our country. Period.

Let the rest of the world sink or swim...It’s not my problem. And we will be taking care of our own crooked politicians soon.

BRING BACK THE GILLOTINE!!!!

Who will be Madame Defarge in the Tale of Two Worlds?

I will gladly fill in if there are no takers. I would first need to learn how to knit.

By the way, when we bought every square inch of Panamanian soil from the Panamanians after we helped separate Panama from Colombia (the payment settlements took many, many years), Costa Rica wanted to become a U.S. state. She was turned down. Big mistake.

Wish those countries would follow up with withdrawing their financial support to the UN. Leave it all up to the other countries. And move the damned HQ to Riyadh. Leave the empty UN building in NY as a testament to it as a latter day Tower of Babel.
