Should Switzerland Join The UN?

Sat Mar 02, 2002 6:50 am

I think so, I don't think the UN is an alliance per se, but just an organization of countries that take on human rights issues and things.

I think the whole idea is that Switzerland does not want to be a part of a MILITARY alliance, which is not the whole purpose of the UN.

I really think we should join since we already pay the UN so much. So we really ought to have a vote. And not just pay.


Anybody have the current figures of who contributes how much to the UN?

I don't think anyone should join the UN.

I think they're happy with their neutrality.

Avion-

Switzerland is currently paying dues? I thought you have to be a member country in order to pay dues.

Well, all those UN agencies based in Geneva should relocate out of Switzerland until Switzerland does become a member! WHy should the Swiss economy benefit from the UN when they're not a member?

OTOH, why should Switzerland be compelled to join a bureaucratic orgn of which most nations are dictatorships?

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

We pay like 400 Million dollars a year right noe just for nothing. If we join we would be the eleventh biggest contributor and not really have to say anything.

BTW only two countries are not in the UN, the Vatican and Switzerland.

WHat do u think`??

Yes, I think Switzerland have benefited from UN long enough, so I´m pleased that the Swiss finally decided to
take responsibility and join the rest of the world....
