It's Time To Pull Out

Yes, I have finally reached the point where I agree with the Left: it’s time to pull out.

Time to pull out of the U.N.

They're worse than useless: they actually harm the very people whom they profess to protect. It's nothing more than a corrupt men's club for tyrants, dictators and/or genocidal terrorist nations.

We're wasting our time and money there. It's time to start a new organization that's dedicated to upholding real human rights, freedom and Democracy.

Time to pull out of the Geneva Convention.

Why not? America and its allies are the only countries that pay anything more than lip-service to it anyway.

China holds our pilots in direct contradiction to the Geneva Convention, Iran takes British sailors hostage in direct contradiction to the Geneva Convention, Palestinians, Al Qaeda and Hezbollah hide amongst civilians to escape retribution for intentionally killing other civilians - and I'm pretty sure that beheading your hostages isn't approved anywhere in the articles of the Convention.

The Geneva Convention only works when fighting civilized people. The U.N. only works when it's being run by civilized people. Neither are true today. Both institutions are being used against us by a bunch of savages (and that includes Communist countries such as China).

We don't need (or want) to turn into mirror images of those savages, but there's no reason that we should enable - or dignify - these reprobates by attending their meetings or adhering to archaic rules that force us to let known enemy combatants go free.

Once upon a time there was an organization called The League of Nations. It was the predecessor of the United Nations. It failed and was disbanded. The U.N. has obviously failed, but too many people make too much money from it for it to ever be disbanded.

But that doesn't mean that those of us who believe in truth and freedom can't secede.
