Wait a minute. Isn't it the general rule for ANY foreign diplomats who are not "lapdogs" in US (including Russia, by the way) - 25 mile radius zone?

“UN delegates of certain countries are required to notify us or obtain permission prior to travel outside of a 25-mile radius. So this is not something out of the realm of what we’ve done before,” she told reporters in Washington.

Demonizing others can produce only one result - degradation of one's self-awareness and well-being. Godless acts.

It should be a 0.25 mile radius.
Oh hang on - I forgot that on this forum and "news" outlet we are in favour of genocidal dictators.

Sounds like the treatment people "allegedly" ; get when they travel to the DPRK. Interesting, some might say

Ple ase, go ahead and move it. It costs us more to host it then it is worth. Plus they generally limit them for their own protection. It is easy to keep someone safe when you restrict them to an already secured area.

  


Yeah, right. They are only concerned of Syrian, Iranian and North Korean UN representatives' safety.
UN is such a joke anyway.

It really is time to move the UN to another country which doesn't limit travel of its delegates.

25 miles, isn't that about the footprint diameter of a nuclear warhead?

Yo u know what these shock and awe type parasites are like, always upping the anti.

The question is the right one .. WHY is it so, is another question. Maybe the answer lies in the fact that it is not US that created transnational gigantic powers, but they are tranforming US and other countries governmants in their puppets,

Not transforming but transformed, it's already done. For example, the purpose for Obama being in the White House is to destroy the constitution not so his administration can trample the people, he is just there to pave the way for the next group who will be undoubtedly worse. Because hey, you can't impeach the first black president

Don't like it don't come!

  


The point is that they do not have a choice, they have to go there if they want a voice on the world stage. I'm sure most in the UN would prefer a different location. I live 60 mins from the US border and never go. I wish our American brothers and sisters would take back their country. It's being led by sociopathic war hungry liars.

I say it should be located on some small island on the pacific ocean. And be declared as a place that falls under no country, but rather international governance.

  


That's actually a great idea, which means it would never happen. Makes to much sense lol

The UN should be located in Sweden or Denmark. Certainly not Fascist American, Russia is not a good idea either. The UN needs to be located in a small first world country who is as close to democratic as we can get in this corrupt fallen world.
