    On one hand you fear it as "world govt" that will interfere with your independance, on the other hand you say it is a paper tiger but on the other hand you wont give it power because of fears over your independance and so attack it for being a paper tiger.The policy of the US has always to maintain its right to act in ways that it would not allow any other to do,or I should say the US wants to keep the right to a degree of independent action they are interror of any other country having. If you hate and fear the UN so much why dont you leave it then? Why havent you done so already?The UN security council has worked in the US intrests many times in the past.Your desire to return to a 19th century world not only in internatinonal relations but in internal socio economic policy is highly charged with danger. The law of the jungle in international affairs and socio economic policyonly allows the monsters to thrive and breeds more conflict as the slave rebel against the lords of the Manor. Havent you noticed the imperfect but importants teps away from the jungle humanity has been trying to get too despite many setbacks?You cant have things all your own way, I know it is hard for many of you to accept the will of lesser important peoples as authoritative but we are all going to have live within the law even you guys.
