Kofi Annon is evil, he HATES america, yet we allow him to stay here. Why? Shouldn't the UN be based in a shit country like France? I cant stand the UN. I dont understand why we dont kick them out, they hate us anyway...

No choice.
Its their land, we gave it to them.
Don't want to be native-american givers, do we?

Oh, I didnt know that. Hmm, could we just chip off that part of the island, and let them float away?

Just tell Al Qaeda that the UN Building is actually a big synagogue...it will be gone in a blink...

Because it gives the CIA and FBI a perfect, centralized location to glean intel from every country on the planet.

It's the only reason I can think of, other than diplomacy, which sucks as a reason...

Excellent point, Zaphod!

Jesus, I guess Annapolis did teach ya' something.

Seriously though, that is the most damn convincing reason I've ever heard for it.

I tend to agree with this line of thinking. Otherwise, we should make them get the fuck out. What would they do? Ask us not to do it? Impose sanctions? Hmm....

The Rockefellers gave it to the UN.

I have a BETTER question - no offense - why do we protect the UN building if its their "property"?! Way too many police assets and US Coast Guard being run ragged to defend their goddamn building. I know this personally - pisses me off too.......Protect NYC - that's fine.........but task out US military and LEO to protect and organization that HATES us - thats f#cked up.

Exactly, it lets us keep an eye on them.

I've been saying it for months. It's the ONLY reason that makes any sense!

Think about it: If we told them to GTF out, would England suddenly stop being an ally? Would we suddenly go to war with Russia? NO!

But DAMN if we wouldn't lose a TREASURE TROVE of data-mining capacity!

I can only imagine the technology that is deployed against that building to eavesdrop, record, end exploit, and it's ALL in OUR front yard!

The ONLY reason I can think of is to keep tabs on it. However, thats like renting a room of your house out to the mob, just so you can easedrop.

Another important reason: If we DO kick them out, and they somehow manage to re-form in Paris, say, can you imagine what they would try to do without US there to VETO their asses?

The best defense we have against organized World Socialism is the Veto we hold in the UN. Without that brake, God only knows what they would do!

I don't know. I think we could kick them out no problem and they wouldn't do shit except "censure" us, BFD. they're totally impotent which is why every 3rd world gangsta dictator can tell them to pound sand with impunity.

fine, there'd be world socialism....everywhere except the US and the UK.


WTF is the UN going to do about it? write strongly lettered letters? Great! let GWB use 'em as toilet paper, stuff 'em back in the envelopes and write Return to Sender on them.

Then what will they do? condemn us? pssht.....whatthefuckever.

without the US military, the UN has no teeth.

It's not their land, it's ours regardless of what some socialists think.
I don't care what legal claims or other flim flam, it's U.S. soil and what would they do if we kicked them out and took it back ?
Piss on the UN !!

Why? Because there are American citizens in there with the rest of them. My question is, why is FRANCE on the security counsel? Isn't that like putting that 11 year old smelly kid next to your table in the lunch room back in junior high? If the UN building had been attacked, we wouldn't be having the problems we are all over the world, whenever I tell people that (like foriegn students) they STFU.
