Now I am not saying that their are UN tanks in Maine, but I am not laughing at the OP either.

There is some legitimate concern about the UN and its constant attempts by less than moral nation-states using it as a way to introduce agendas that harm the major powers, particularly the United States. But like you said... its got no army of its own. But don't tell that to people...

It has to do with money. US provides 22% of UN funding, far above what any other countries provide.

What do we get in return? A general assembly that spends its time bashing the US, and countries like Sierra Leone, Cuba and Saudi Arabia on the Human Rights Counsel.

My main quibble with the UN is our ROI is fucking shit.

I agree with your points, but the US has the power to change that. Your government simply lacks the will to do anything about it.

Every year, sometimes twice, a buddy of mine tells me of a "source" that has first hand knowledge of UN troops about to invade the U.S. Each time i have to remind him that the blue helmets can't keep the peace or enforce their will in a tiny third world country. How in the heck could they hope to contain armed Americans? Not only would it be logistically impossible, but for what reason would the U.N even try that? Even Japan, a world power at the time, knew better than to try and invade the U.S. You're trying to convince me that a rag tag assembly of multi-national forces would be organized enough to attempt to control this giant country? I seriously doubt the U.N. could come in to Alabama and control it. It's just ridiculous. And our military... what, they are just going to sit there? Are you assuming they would be complicit in this takeover of our country by foreign troops? None of this even remotely makes sense.

50% combat effective rate....better than I'd expect.


They keep us fatties out in front through the assault , it's cheaper on the skinnies than buying kevlar . Then once we fall , they roast us for rations ......cheaper than MRE's

They told us we were 'multi-tasking' .....I didnt think it involved being a bullet magnet AND a spit up my ass on an open fire to feed my brothers, dammit!!

As much as I enjoy blaming the government, if we had citizens who were interested in voting for people worth a shit, maybe we'd get some people into Congress with the willpower to address issues like "Why the fuck are we funding a US bashing organization when we're broke as hell?".

Or they were simply American vehicles that had been used in a UN mission.


Domestic politics has gotten so full of derp over the UN (as you can see here in GD), that we haven't done so since UNPROFOR. Start a thread using the name Micheal New is you want to see some crazy and tortured irrationality.

Most likely, they were someone's M113s were were refurbing, and they were simply painted in the configuration requested by the customer.

I'm on the seacoast, stop on by! We can go down to Hampton Beach and clear out all of the Massholes that have already invaded it in one pass with the MBT.


I will try to get over there, having problems finding the forward gears in this thing

If you don't get the hate for the UN you need to educate yourself about what it is and what it does.

I would suggest the book The fearful master as a start.

Um, 'decedents' are people who have died.

Do you mean 'descendants'? (a.k.a. "blood relatives in the direct line of descent")
