#1 It's really tough to blow shit up when you don't have money to make bombs.

#2 Ah, great to see the leader of the free world, Germany, step up to waste their own money. It's fine, they're flush with cash while Uncle Sam is flat broke. It's nice stepping back from these endless international commitments.

#6 Frank, the UN cannot tell us to do that. A) We have veto power. B) Nikki Haley is the US Ambassador. She will tell the UN where they can stick their ruling.

#8 It's fine, they're flush with cash

Given all that Germany is spending to support the replacement population, and then to guard against the criminals and jihadis within that population, not to mention the Palestinians, etc, I find it hard to believe they are anything like as flush as they used to be.

#9 ...well, they're not spending it on defense. How many combat aircraft and naval vehicles can they roll out tonight?

#11 Fine. The day the General Assembly or the Security Council announces hearings, I want Nikki Haley to stand up and announce that the people calling themselves "Palestinians" have made themselves enemies of the United States, and shall be "obliterated from the face of the earth". Follow it up with about two weeks of 12-aircraft ARCLIGHT strikes on the Gaza Strip, one every hour, and the first one a total surprise. Anything with the name "UNRWA" or plain "UN" will receive special attention. And we'll have satellites dedicated to recording secondaries.

After that, maybe we can look for and root out other crap wearing the UN label.
