Make no mistake, I appreciate Haley's remarks to the UN and her style of delivery of them. Sharp and competent, this one (and I am not being sarcastic). It's incredible she takes the career hit risk that she does having anything to do with Trump.

But her statement makes it sound like the important thing is the perceived persecution of the United States, not the question of security. What does what the US does or doesn't do for the UN have to do with whether or not it is more or less secure for Trump to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel's capital?

It sounds like by Haley's own remarks that the US only regards the UN as a vector to financially influence the world. If that's what the UN is all about to us, that's a huge revelation.

I am not even judging the merit of Trump's decision. It might or might not be a good idea, time will tell. I'm more in angst over the bothersome idea that the UN can't debate a point and express an opinion contrary to US policy without us crying how persecuted we are and then more or less threatening to hit back with money.
