I don't think I want them completely out of the U.S., but they definitely over step their boundaries.

Definitely not a fan. I think the US should pull out of it as soon as possible. The UN was never meant to be permanent anyway.

Hate them. Kick them out of the states. Maybe Iraq would be a better place for them.

Paris is the ideal city for them.

I'm okay with it but it seems like we're doing all the work while other countries barely contribute.

Pay attention to what really goes on at the UN. Look at who they just put on the security Council. The UN is a nice idea in theory, but as is usual beurocracy destroys its potential.

I like the U.N. Anarchy in any sense never works, and so the U.N. serves as place where grievances can be heard, group decisions can be made, and collective missions can be supported.

Such a convincing retort. I enjoy this app for the debates; you're not offering much of one.

Like so many things, great in concept, but the execution leaves something to be desired....

When Robert Mugabe is on the UN Human Rights Commission, we might have a problem. Corrupt The UN is, say Yoda.

It's better than nothing. Sure, it could be better, but hell, come one up with something better, and we'll try it.

If ALL treaties were to be ratified one by one in the senate I would support the U.N.

It's imperfect, but it has done much good for the world and if would be foolish for the US to leave the UN. Especially considering the great deal of power we have from our advantageous permanent position on the UN Security Council.

The UN isn't what it was created to be any more. I think the cause more harm then good

Although the United Nations is not a perfectly functioning organization, it does provide a forum for world leaders to discuss and solve many problems.

All countries of the world should be part of the United Nations. It was created to keep and promote a fair living and peaceful world, and help poor countries.

In its current form, no. But the idea of a central area where countries can conduct open diplomacy and trade, and disputes may be mediated by unbiased moderators is a good idea, as long as it does not enforce laws

Not a fan the way it currently is. A security council of a few nations has most of the say.

I hardly see how that makes them worthless. And nobody likes Russia, but it would be a sham organization if Russia didn't have a lot of power.

Worthless means having no value. That describes the organization perfectly.
