Security expert: What US Should Do With the UN

Slashing US funding for the United Nations by 50 percent, as the Trump White House reportedly is proposing, is “a good start,” says Claudia Rosett at PJ Media. Indeed, it sends “a welcome signal — the first from an American president in many years — that it is time for the UN to stop treating Washington as a moronic sugar-daddy.” Defenders of the world body claim “it’s all we’ve got” and propose “reforms that won’t stick or won’t work it all.” But “if the UN is all we’ve got, then it is way past time to come up with something else.” That “might seem a daunting project,” she admits. “But surely it is worth asking whether the toll of sticking with the UN might turn out to be even worse.”
