Another U.N. Outrage

Eventually Americans will finally believe conservatives when they say that the U.N. is an anti-America and anti-Israel organization. From
Applause for Ahmadinejad

He was greeted by applause when he walked into the United Nations General Assembly, and applauded again, even after questioning 9/11 and claiming that the American government may have been behind the attack.

That’s right, applauded after questioning the motivation for the terrorist attacks, who was responsible for them, and essentially suggesting they were a U.S. plot.
First the Holocaust and now 9/11; once again Iran's murderous dictator is trying to deny reality when the evidence is apparent to any rational human being. And the U.N.'s response to this absurdity is to applaud? Ahmadinejad even had the gall to say that:
"the majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world" believe that "some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining of the American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime."
I doubt anybody at the U.N. really thinks that "the majority of the American people" believe the U.S. government had anything to do with 9/11. But since any attack on America and "the Zionist Regime" (i.e., Israel) is a good thing in the eyes of many U.N. ambassadors, Ahmadinejad was even given applause as he stepped down from the podium.

Has the U.N. ever been useful? At the height of the Cold War its main function was to provide a venue for the Soviet Union's grandstanding. It was the nuclear threat of NATO that kept the Soviets at bay, not U.N. diplomacy. Now, aside from ineffectively trying to convince Iran to give up its nuclear program, the U.N.'s primary role is to provide a soapbox for brutal dictators and useful idiots to rant against the United States (the U.N.'s number one financial donor and home for U.N. Headquarters) and Israel (the most democratic nation in the Middle East).

The United States has already tolerated too much from that worthless body. It's time to yank the ambassadors' visas, send them home on the next available airplane (in the coach section if possible), and raze the building. From then on we could meet with ambassadors from nations that are willing to be reasonable in some mutually acceptable location, preferably a nice restaurant. As for countries like Iran, we might just have to make use of Teddy Roosevelt's Big Stick diplomacy every now and then.
