The only thing worse than a corrupt, ineffectual UN is a UN with teeth -- in other words a UN with a "revitalized peacekeeping function."

Anonymous, Glendale, Az

I feel the same way.

Read my lips, Anonymous is exactly right. A UN with teeth would be a nightmare.

And the same man said "The stage is now set for the New World Order" These people are every bit as frightening as Hitler and Stalin. The only thing stopping (slowing them down) them is the second amendment.

A statement from an individual that obviously hated the Constitution, freedom, liberty, individual sovereignty, peace, and prosperity for all.

The Editor let loose the dogs of war with this one. Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. I dislike the politics of GWB but the quote's good. What's the difference folks, the US going around as peacekeepers or the UN - I think I prefer the UN.

Ethan, Clinton

I don't prefer the UN going around as peacekeepers because they wil soon be keeping "peace" in our borders.

What makes you think the UN can be trusted with our military any more than our military can be trusted with 'elected' presidents like the Bush's? Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It is bad enough Americans have lost control of their government -- now we are expected to turn it all over to the UN? There are no Constitutional chains limiting UN powers -- whatever they say goes, as long as none can oppose them. They are but a paper tiger today, but give them control of the world's military, and look the f*** out.

One of Bush's finest hours. And those uneducated in such matters jumped on his "new world order" comment to see something sinister when he only was saying something positive. We have discussed the fact here before that there is always a world order, just like there is always a "state of the union". There is nothing new about a new world order except that it is constantly new and evolving daily with the politics of each and every country and organiziation involved in world politics.

Neo-cons are simply internationalists in sheep's clothing.
