United Nations Says America Is Cheap........

Jane Egeland, undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs basically called the America relief effort for the tsunamis relief efforts cheap. He continued to say a country that only donates 1.0 to 2.0% GNI is stingy and not very generous.

What, the UN asking for more money to use in humanitarian relief efforts and calling the country that donates more money internationally than any other country cheap? The same UN that skimmed millions of dollars from the citizens of Iraqi under the Oil for Food program and lined their pockets and the pockets of other corrupt UN members like France, Russia, and China, wants more money, day one.

Well I think what I would do is give them the entire financial support that we would have normally budgeted for UN adminstrative support in 2005, for this relief effort. After the Oil for Food debacle however, we would of course have to have a US representative oversee all spending. Then I would inform the UN that they will need to call on France, Russia, Germany and China for the normal US budget for UN adminstrative activities. Since we would have spent contribution on the people of South Asia directly and don't have any left for the socialist high brow UN bureaucrats who ineffectively get nothing done in our world any longer. A typical socialist institution that wants to be feed huge amounts of cash, have ridiculously ineffective results and blame others for their lack of success.

Not enough money, because I guess there is just not enough for them to skim their traditional 15-20% off the top. Isn't it time to seriously consider putting the screws to this den of thieves?
