Finally, something Hugo and I agree on
Chavez urges leaders to consider moving UN out of US.
I say, send it to France. Hugo wants it in Jerusalem.
Hugo also wants the USA kicked out of the UN, whcih should further my suggestion to close up the UN altogether.
Too bad he didn’t talk to Kofi ahead of time on that subject, considering how the USA provides for over 24% of the total UN budget (and that doesn’t even include the subsidized NYC parking) and how Kofi’s wanting to extort an additional 7% of GNP, plus raising taxes on air tickets, which could provide “a constant stream of money”, as Kofi said to the Financial Times. Not even Hugo has that much money.
You can watch the Chavez speech at the UN in Spanish at VCrisis. He’s even asking for more transparency — on the part of the multinationals, not the UN, of course.
