Billions More For More UN Buildings?

The United Nations hasn’t even finished the $2 billion renovation of its New York headquarters (cost over-runs currrently 225% above the UN’s original estimate), and already it’s lobbying member states for another $3 billion for another big building in New York, and an overhaul of its palatial offices in Geneva. George Russell of Fox News has put himself through the torment of reading the relevant UN documents, and has the story.

U.S. taxpayers would of course be expected to pony up America’s usual 22% or more of the cost. But the worst of it is, these billions in buildings are all meant to accommodate UN plans for an ever-expanding staff.  And if the UN builds it, you can bet that they will come. Where does this end?
