UN secrecy: We should stop paying for it

OpinionJournal - The Real World: Your tax dollars may support the United Governments, but don't expect to see an audit of how they are spent. (The governments that make up the UN are not used to operating in the open after all.)
The phone number is 212-963-1234; the Web site is www.un.org. Go ahead, try getting a look at the books, or for that matter any serious audits, let alone the full deliberations of a Security Council that purports to represent the world's people while providing rotating seats to the likes of Syria and permanent veto power to the thugs of Beijing and the antidemocrats of the Kremlin.
The things we need to take the UN to task for includeAs someone out in the blogsphere said recently, the UN is trade organization for governments, and for the most part those governments are not democratic. They are anti-American, and to a large extent they are anti-Semitic. As such, the UN is interested more in promoting governments ahead of the governed. The UN itself is corrupt, and as the misconduct of troops on "peace-keeping" missions attests, it is worse than useless - it is a hazard to the world's population. It is time this organization was let go the way of the League of Nations. [h/t NRA-ILA]
