An ever-increasingly irrelevant group of nations whose widespread corruption is coming to light.

An enormous inefficent bureaucracy that saps the U.S. money and time. Easily corruptible with nepotism, simony, and fraud that is rampant. Has proven not to prevent anything and is slow in reacting to any situation. The point of the U.N. is to stop war however just ends up dragging a shit load more troops to war (i.e. Korea) if they ever decide to go. If they don't feel like committing then a disobeitiant country can usually do whatever it feels like.
The UN decided to bicker for three years about various genocides hundreds of thousands died in the meantime, millions displaced, and plenty of money wasted. In short, the UN should be scraped as a governing body.

Wow, we're all political, aren't we?

The UN (aka The United Nations) is an international organization that describes itself as a "global association of governments facilitating cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, and social equity."

It was founded at the end of World War II by the 'victorious world powers', who hoped that it would act to prevent conflicts between nations by providing a forum in which all countries could address their concerns nonviolently.

Its headquarters are in New York City, and it is devided into administrative bodies such as the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, UN Economic and Social Council, UN Trusteeship Council, UN Secretariat, and the International Court of Justice. It also includes WHO and UNICEF.

There is, obviously, a lot of debate over how well the UN is doing its job. Of course this is just debate and the whole matter is sensitive.
The term "United Nations" was coined by Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II.

An organization based on the principles that:

1. Asking your laws to be followed in a polite manner will get you listned to.

2. The USA should have as much say in world matters as Suriname or the Neitherlands.

3. That China and Libya should lead a Human Rights Commitee.
The UN, you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

What you would say after hearing or seeing something that is offensive or disgusting. Should be said in a higher octave than your usual speech. The intention for the use of this word is to "UN" do it!

the United Nations is both a haven for despots and the world-wide headquarters of anti-Americanism, and for all of those foreign readers, they are also Anti-white, so if you are of dark skin living in America they hate you and if you are white living anywhere in the world the UN hates you
