Posted on 12/04/2018 8:40:37 AM PST by RoosterRedux
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo brought the Trump administration's voice to a gathering of European leaders, offering a stinging criticism of the European order's capitulation to rogue nations such as Iran, China, and Russia.
Pompeo, addressing a gathering of NATO leaders on Tuesday, offered a sobering rebuke of the international treaty group, telling the crowd the Trump administration will not stand down in the face of rising threats from a host of rogue regimes.
"At the United Nations, peacekeeping missions drag on for decades. The U.N.'s climate-related treaties are viewed by some nations as a vehicle to redistribute wealth," Pompeo said.
"Anti-Israel bias has been institutionalized. Regional powers collude to vote the likes of Cuba and Venezuela onto the Human Rights Council," he said. "The U.N. was founded as an organization that welcomed peace- loving nations.' I ask: Today, does it continue to serve its mission faithfully?"
"Iran didn't join the community of nations after the nuclear deal was inked; it spread its newfound riches to terrorists and dictators. Tehran holds multiple American hostages," he noted.

Go Pence Go!!!
Scolding Europe is a fool’s errand. When Paris, Rome, or Berlin become smoking radioactive holes courtesy of Iran, they’ll learn, but no sooner.
The U.N.’s climate-related treaties are viewed by some nations as a vehicle to redistribute wealth,” Pompeo said.
Theft by any other name is still theft.
Pompeo nails it.
Could this be a precursor to throwing the thug rogues out of New York? One can hope.
Why are we still in NATO?
“The U.N.s climate-related treaties are viewed by some nations as a vehicle to redistribute wealth, Pompeo said.”
Worse, it singles out America’s wealth for redistribution.
Reagan's back, Odimwit's gone, hallelujah!
The oh so smart and cultured Europeans would be back up to their old tricks - backstabbing, lying, and warring - in no time at all (15 years tops) if the US were to completely disengage.
Given their weasaliness, it would be inevitable.
Inquiring minds would love to know.
I think a simple statement:
The US no longer intends to take part in it, due to financial reasons, but will be ready to assist any true ally in times of trouble, as so many have done for the US. Thank you and God Bless America. By the way, we’re pulling out of the UN and evicting it from it’s current location. New location to be determined, but it will not be in the US. Thank you and God Bless America.
Then we can sit back and watch all those globalist, tyrants go into seizures. Especially the UN folks. No more living the high life in NYC.
I suggest we make security arrangements with Poland, Hungary and other vicegrad nations. They actually care about their future, while Western Europe does not.
Why? What's in it for us?
ALLIES, you know, people who will be there if and when we need them, unlike the cucks of France, Germany, and other members of NATO.
To do what? If we wind up taking on China then how will Poland and Hungary help?
The Poles and Hungarians had/have troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The other countries I’m unsure of, but allies are needed. While I’m sure they’re both more motivated to fight the Russians if need be, I don’t doubt they’d throw in their lot against the Chicoms.
