Man, Isn’t that the truth! I liked the Twin Towers in NYC, too bad the Muzzies didn’t do us all a favor and fly their planes into the UN HQ.

Will he also say: “no more bombing of buildings in New York City.”?

In fact, has any UN chief ever said that at all?

So I guess that carpet bombing with napalm made out of bacon grease is out of the question? Good, because I wouldn’t want to waste perfectly good bacon grease. So that leaves us with just carpet bombing.

The UN can’t even pass a resolution condemnign the punishment of Apostates both relgious and Political by Governments...

They are beyond useless, we could save a LOT of money just telling the UN to go screw itself and also if we stopped giving money to countries that hate us...

Other than being a sink-hole for US tax money is the un anything other than a party for the “diplomatic corps” and their hanger-ons?

As I recall these UN idiots supported a “free” Egypt and Libya not long ago. With their Obama, they were shown to be woefully ignorant.

Iraq probably will become 3 countries, and if it does break into people group regions, the UN needs to get out of the way.

Mr Moon. UN Sec.
OK. We fought two wars in Iraq. Set up a unified govmt, which the Iraqis didn’t want. And now we need a third war to give them what they didn’t want, don’t want, and will never want. Give me a break! And what about those poison gas stockpiles that the UN couldn’t find, but are now in the hands of the terrorists? And we could possibly care what the UN says?

And then when the terrorists are part of the Iraqi government, or all of it for that matter, Bay to the Moon will place them in charge of the U.N.’s terrorist watchdog committee.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned on Friday that airstrikes against Islamist militants in Iraq could be counter-productive unless moves were made to create an inclusive government.

Did he comment on the potential productivity of air strikes on the UN HQ itself, or was that so obvious that it needed no commentary?

/s

Note to humor-impaired .gov apparatchiks - that is obviously a joke.

Can we not petition to get this “body” to move to another country?

> Ban Ki-moon warned on Friday that airstrikes against Islamist militants in Iraq could be counter-productive unless moves were made to create an inclusive government.

The most productive thing would be to strap Ban Ki-moon to a MOAB and drop him and it on downtown Tehran.
