The United States have been active member of the United Nations since its inception in 1945. However history provides examples of anti-UN sentiment that have arisen throughout the US and beyond; the stalemate of the Cold War, the failed actions in the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, the UN's failure to respond to President Bush's call for help prior to the invasion of Iraq, and now the UN pushing for Mt. Rushmore to be returned to the local Native American tribes. Should the United States further prove herself as the leading world power by leaving the United Nations?
The UN has no authority within the boundary of the U.S., just like they have NO authority within the boundary of any country.
Should the U.S. leaven the UN? Sure. The UN is nothing more than a scam on the general public to begin with.
The U.S. should not leave the United Nations. It should help strengthen the organization. The world is getting smaller and the countries more interdependent which means that solutions to many issues require cooperation among the nations affected. The UN needs to be improved so that human rights, trade, climate, piracy, slavery, disease issues can be dealt with more effectively.
It might be good if the UN did more, but it seems a strange reason to not support them in doing anything at all.
Maybe they would do more if the US paid their dues in full and on time.
