    Yeah, but Kofi's just the tip of the corruption iceberg at the UN... I say we fire everyone and start over. Let's come up with something new and original that will actually work. How about a League of Nations!

      Lets just turn the US loose, piss everyone off, then let the British come in later to settle the ruffled feathers :icon_razz

                Funny reference, but a great idea. How about something modelled along the lines of the US Constitution, with no absolute veto for anybody.

                  interesting idea. 2/3 of the security council could hammer a point home?

                    Sure. You get a lower house like our House of Reps where representation is based on population, and an upper house like our Senate with equal represntation for everyone. Not sure how you'd elect a Secretary General/President but I bet you could do it with the 'Congress'. You could even have an international court with Real Teeth.

                    One things for sure: the current system needs to change. I'm for the US out of the UN or a complete rewrite of the Charter. The UN is outdated: a Cold War relic.

                        OK, is this a reference that I'm not getting?



                        And I, too, vote for the US to get out of the UN.
