Conservatives have forever hated the UN. We are told that the UN attempts to rob our sovereignty; that it is dangerously close to being a one-world government; that it threatens our freedoms; that it has no business being on US soil.

According to GlobalSecurity.org, the US has close to 400 thousand foreign troops deployed, more than twice as many as the rest of the world combined.
