Perhaps that is because, as mentioned previously, that when they can't even influence one of their most important members, they lack the resolve/strength to get anything actual done?

And some people live in different time zones.

Wow, an institution doing something that would benefit its members! Crazy, right? Perhaps it was that, or maybe the UN say no justifiable reason to invade Iraq.

But the UN in my opinion when it caves on it's resolutions shows it has little to no spine.
So, everything just a tool in the world to help the US carry its 'righteous convictions' throughout the land?

Again, the UN is a conglomeration of countries, and serves all of us, not just one. It doesn't matter who contributes the most money, or such. Generally, bribery is illegal.

Don't you dare speak for me. You are blindly assuming that the US was the single deciding factor in World War II. I admit, the US helped an immense amount after we entered the war, but that doesn't mean we get to take all of the 'glory.'

I feel somewhat bad for you if you believe that being ungrateful constitutes being hateful.

Who to say that everyone in a country is ungrateful? You're assuming that, based off of your skewed perception of a few posts that all of Europe is ungrateful (and therefore hateful, according to your post) for our actions in WWII. Sure, we helped a lot, but that does not entitle us to claim victory and glory for ourselves.

Freedom of speech. It's one of the great qualities of most nations.
