UN rep/Princeton prof Richard Falk calls for “world capital” in Istanbul. At first you want to snicker at the notion of putting the world capital in a Muslim country. It’s like a joke – like making East St. Louis the capital of Illinois. But then it dawns on you: “Hey, does that mean they’ll move the United Nations out of New York? Great idea!”

Yeah, let’s try that for a start! Pack up now UN, and start working on that whole “world capitol” shtick somewhere else.

Looking at the photo I have either seen him on America’s Most Wanted, or on the Megan’s law child perv website. Please start your make believe world capital in Turkey…Take the UN and all the Obama voters with you….and don’t bother coming back.

I’m with him on this one. Seems the place to house the UN would be the world capitol, right?

Let’s disentangle ourselves from this leviathon called UN, before we pack it up and send it to the new world capital, on the moon!

Falk is a left wing old goat who writes for “The Nation” and the “Progressive” and other socialist outlets.

Back in the early 70s he defended violent anti-war protesters. In 1979 he praised the Ayatollah as a man of moderation and an example to other Third World revolutionaries. After 9/11 he championed a panel to investigate the involvement of Bush and the “neocons” in plotting the attack. He’s also been accused of being an anti-semite.

He’s a communist a**hole and a lunatic.

Why did Constantinople get the works?

I agree. Put the new U.N. headquarters there, then carpet bomb everyplace with a “stan” in it’s name.
