Romney: UN a Failure

The frustration goes deep with many when it comes to the UN. The organization is slow to act and often never effective.

Mitt Romney is not so fond of the organization himself, particularly the Human Rights Council.

“The United Nations has been an extraordinary failure of late,” Romney said in response to a question at a pancake house along the coast of early voting South Carolina. “We should withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council.”

A spokesman clarified the statement.

“The governor believes we ought to withdraw completely from the U.N. Human Rights Council, and that means ending our financial support in addition to not seeking a seat on the council,” Fehrnstrom said. “We should not legitimize the council, either with financial or diplomatic support.”

I’m often considered a hawk by my Democratic friends, but I am one who believes the UN needs major reformation or a complete dissolution and even the withdrawal of U.S. participation in the UN in favor for a new and stronger organizational body.

Let’s see where the future lies.
