We are reading the same chart, right?

If you look at the very last column you will see that even within this current year , her debt has increased from 33% to 37% t0 55% of the TOTAL OF ALL OTHER NATIONS' debt.


Hm...  we are reading the same chart, right?  The one that shows that other nations have yet to cough up the cash for the U.N. either.  The precentages merely show the difference of debts owe.

And here is an interesting little gem about the $60 million owed by China for peacekeeping.

If China wants to set up and cover all the debts, so be it - maybe it can get an extra seat or two or three in the U.N. for its effort.

The same ridiculuos logic with Japan's... treating UN as a corporate's board of trustee, asking for UNSC permanent seat by paying more.

Nature or nurture or both ?

Trader,

Are you naturally thick or pretend thick !  When the US single handedly chalked up a debt to the UN more than the rest of the world combined , she should be barred from entering the premises. She should be stripped of her membership status and privileges to vote. No other nation uses and abused the UN more than the US. The former ambassador of the US to UN , one Bolton , was the prime example of a bull in a china shop. Finger wagging at everyone who refuses to fall in line with Uncle Sam and as well , berate the UN for not lying down like a pet poodle each time the organ grinder grinds the tune. Even the pied piper PAY for a following, not the  Yanks.

Again a  word to the wise: don't show data which reinforces the IQ similar to the size of your shoe !

The Rise of Hamas
Stephen Zunes | June 26, 2007

Editor: Emily Schwartz Greco

Foreign Policy In Focus http://www.fpif.org/

In light of Hamas’ seizure of the Gaza Strip, it is worthwhile to understand how this radical Islamist organization came to play such a major role in Palestinian political life and how Israel and the United States contributed to making that possible.

Ironically, it was Israel which encouraged the rise of the Palestinian Islamist movement as a counter to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the secular coalition composed of Fatah and various leftist and other nationalist movements. Beginning in the early 1980s, with generous funding from the U.S.-backed family dictatorship in Saudi Arabia, the antecedents of Hamas began to emerge through the establishment of schools, health care clinics, social service organizations and other entities which stressed an ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam which up to that point had not been very common among the Palestinian population. The hope was that if people spent more time praying in mosques, they would be less prone to enlist in left-wing nationalist movements challenging the Israeli occupation.


So... it's also the US and Israel that created and support Hamas, as a counter balance to Fatah.
