Development: Rich countries should establish a timetable to reach the goal set 35 years ago of earmarking 0.7 percent of gross national product for development assistance by 2015. The United States has one of the lowest levels -- about 0.15 percent.


The United States is the largest financial contributor to the U.N., and has been every year since its creation in 1945.

Seems to me those two facts show how one can slant the fact to prove whatever point they want. and the UN seems intent on saying we should pay more. While it is easy for the UN to say we as Americans should pay our fair share, it would also be FAIR for US to ask for some results other then insults, after all we are currently the largest contributers to thier currupt organization,

"The United States is a generous supporter -- in many cases the largest supporter -- of key U.N. programs. In 2003, the U.S. contributed:

-- 57 percent to the budget of the World Food Program to help feed 104 million people in 81 countries;

-- 17 percent to the budget of the United Nations Children's Fund to feed, vaccinate, educate, and protect children in 158 countries;

-- 14 percent to the core budget of the United Nations Development Program to eradicate poverty and encourage democratic governance; and

-- 33 percent to the budget of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
