Another example as to why a nation should be very hesitant to enter into treaties.
You can read the whole story at the link, but, a question remains …… how much do we pay for this insipidly corrupt organization to function?
In broad terms, the bottom line will remain the same: the U.S. will continue to pay billions more than everyone else. Last year, the U.S. handed over $3 billion toward the U.N.’s so-called “regular” Secretariat budget and its peacekeeping forces, though the full amount of U.S. contributions to the U.N. system — the Obama administration does not divulge them — was much more.
Yeh, probably 5-10 times the amount. It’s an egregious abuse of the public trust not to divulge the amount of taxpayer monies being given away to various corrupt UN efforts, many in direct conflict with the interests of the US.
We could push for a rule change, but, well, there are a few nations with veto power, so …. well, we signed the treaty, no?
