Diplomatic Divorce: Why America Should End Its Love Affair with the United Nations
In this bold and provocative new book, Diplomatic Divorce, Tom Kilgannon argues that failure to understand the United Nations and the motivations of the people who run it imperils not only America's international sovereignty but ultimately America's independence. Kilgannon, who has reported from UN events around the world, provides an eye-opening look at how a corrupt haven of second-rate bureaucrats from third-world countries is dictating the future of the world's only superpower—and leading us down the road to ruin. In Diplomatic Divorce, Kilgannon contends that the United Nations—with the help of international, anti-American lobbyists—is assaulting American values on a number of fronts, from national security to trade to tax policy to the Internet. Our First Amendment is under attack from UN bureaucrats who are trying to wrest control of the Internet from the United States. Global gun-grabbers have our Second Amendment in their crosshairs as they work toward an international Arms Trade Treaty which will ban the private ownership of firearms. Kilgannon shows how despite President Bush's work, members of America's military are still in jeopardy of being tried before Kofi Annan's International Criminal Court and how Congress has outsourced its constitutional responsibility to the World Trade Organization.Leading Democrats like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, John Kerry and others, Kilgannon explains, “have abandoned their faith in America for the empty promises of a global cult...which is hopelessly corrupt, inherently flawed and anti-American to the core.” These apostles of universal law have hung our Constitution on the discount rack. For these reasons and more, he argues, “it is time for America to end her love affair with the United Nations.”
