"The planning of UN can be traced to the “secret steering committee” established by Secretary [of State Cordell] Hull in January 1943. All of the members of this secret committee, with the exception of Hull, a Tennessee politician, were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. They saw Hull regularly to plan, select, and guide the labors of the [State] Department’s Advisory Committee. It was, in effect, the coordinating agency for all the State Department’s postwar planning."

Reader comments about this quote:
The planning of the UN came out of the failure of the Republican US Congress to ratify and join The League of Nations. This failure led to the Second World War. German and Japanese desire for world empire was no more evil than was British, French, and American far flung territories in the 20th Century. Roosevelt and others recoginized that colonialism had to end and at the end of WWII the Phillipines, Indonesia, later India all were given independence and self-government. This was a big step towards freedom from foreign domination for much of the worlds people. The United Nations was and is a an important institution in forming this new world order out of the destruction of old world order that led up to WWII. This guy is all wet and thus gets a thumbs down!

    Yep, the UN is a con. Their peacekeepers have never kept a peace. This organization is New York City's bastion for socialism and communism. Built upon old slaughtering grounds, its foundation is blood and its function is war and world domination. Only bankrupt countries may be in the UN. The UN charter is a declaration that THEY have the power to declare what rights you have and what rights you don't. And once again, as we see here, the international banking cartel which created the CFR, created the UN, too. These are not beneficent people -- their intent is world domination and the UN enables it. Waffler can always be counted on to defend the bankers, taxation, socialism, globalism, and totalitarianism. You can lead to a horse to Waffler, but you can't make him think.

    At best , UN stands for "Un Nessary." At worst it has been a nest of spies and thugs.

    The UN peace keepers stand by and watch mass murder and in their spare time rape the local children for fun and amusement. Meanwhile, their leaders back in NYC skim billions from funds meant to feed the starving masses. Just the kind of organization anyone would want to put their trust in.
