[January 30, 2024] Several years ago, I wrote that the United Nations was not worth the cost because it has failed to uphold its mission: to prevent war. I wrote my War College thesis with this very headline, and my conclusion then, as it is now, is the same. There is no place for the UN within a civilized world. I continue to stand by my earlier assessments of UN malfeasance.
Recent scandals include UN employees working for UNWRA actively participating in the October 7, 2023 attack and bloodthirsty killing of Israeli civilians. And it is alleged around 1,200 Gaza employees of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees have connections to either Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The Times of Israel says that Israeli intelligence suggests that some 10% of all UNRWA employees in Gaza have ties to terror organizations.
Not only has the UN failed to uphold its original mission, but it is also a bureaucratic nightmare, ruled by oligarchs and tyrants, funneling money to terrorist organizations, condemning Israel in a war that Israel did not start, and has taken up causes unrelated to what the agency was found upon.
I once asked whether the UN should be disbanded in light of its working against peace, supporting terror, delegitimatizing the West, and vast corruption in the agency. My answer was that the UN should be reformed and not removed. I’m beginning to rethink my opinion; disbanding might be more beneficial.
Reform or keep the UN? Is it worth the cost? These are questions that senior leaders in America and the West must address publicly. My guess is that under President Biden, nothing will change, and his weak leadership will beckon poorly for us.
My recommendation is that the United States immediately shut down the UN in New York City and force them to relocate anywhere else.
