UN Meddling

Day two is a little early for this kind of grandstanding: U.N. official slams U.S. as 'stingy' over aid.

This line is typical of a certain mindset:

But U.N. Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland suggested
that the United States and other Western nations were being "stingy" with relief funds, saying there would be more available if taxes were raised.

How true. If only we would allow the UN to determine the proper level of taxation for us, they would be able to do so much more. Keep in mind as this UN toady lectures us that the UN is the institution that engaged in over 20 billion dollars of fraud putting money in Saddam's pockets rather than those of the Iraqi people in need of food and medicine.

PS: our initial aid package is $15 million dollars, almost four times the initial aid package of the entire European Union. The US gets singled out, however, because her tax rates don't meet Jan Egeland's demanding requirements.
