More "League of Democracies" Talk

WE mentioned earlier Sen. John McCain's support for such an institution to bypass the corrupt and ineffectual United Nations. Here's more talk on the issue from fellow presidential contender Mitt Romney, via FoxNews:

"The United Nations has been an extraordinary failure of late," Romney said in response to a question at a pancake house along the coast of early voting South Carolina. "We should withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council."...
Romney also said he would support a new "coalition of the free nations of the world and bring those nations together so that we can act together."

"We should develop some of our own — if you will — forums and alliances or groups that have the ability to actually watch out for the world and do what's right,"

The UN is dominated by tyrannically regimes, and we shouldn't be involved with such people, who promise one thing then stab you in the back at every opportunity. They were unhelpful in winning the Cold War, and more of a hindrance than help in countless wars in the Middle East for the last half-century. Time to separate ourselves from this failure of our own creation.
