Does this make any sense? U.N. Plans to Give More Cash for North Korea's Dictatorial Regime


Even as the United States tries to ratchet up sanctions against North Korea for its March 26 sinking of a South Korean warship, the United Nations is preparing to spend more than $170 million on new programs in the xenophobic communist state. More surprisingly, it is doing so with the knowledge and cooperation of the U.S. State Department.


Why is the UN giving money to a country who is threatening nuclear war ?

  • No we should not. Is that what you wanted to hear Anon 10:41? That goon can take care of his own people. If America wants to take over N Korea and then help the people, fine. Until then, we have bigger fish to fry.

  • It seems that they are contributing to programs to help the people, anti-Malaria , anti-TB, help with other issues involving the general population. I didn't see that the UN would be giving any funds to the Idiots in Charge, war efforts, etc. So....why do we need to know about this??? Is Fox suggesting that the people should not be helped, that they should all get malaria and TB???? Well?

  • Anon :41, maybe it hasn't occurred to you that NK could pay for these programs themselves, but instead they are using their money to build nuclear weapons and bomb other countries ships. We the UN pumps money into taking care of the people, the government doesn't have to.

    We have an insane Communist dictator war monger threatening war with just about everyone. Lets take care of his people so he can nuke his neighbors!

    They are talking about the UN.....not America. You do know that the UN is a worldwide group. not a US Government agency,right? I hope you do ....

    of course they are. We need the support of the UN to help aid us in the WARS, and by not being agreeable, we could increase chances of a nuclear war with NK. Personally, I'd rather that not happen. But I'm sure that fox news would survive lol.
