Transcript - Not for consumer use. Robot overlords only. Will not be accurate.

OK let's talk about what happened with the UN is we haven't seen one another since that whole thing went down and put occurred with Israel now Netanyahu is so are ready to you know cut the United States off completely first time. That I think a lot of people can remember that an incoming president was so involved. Prior to being sworn in. In our world affairs really interesting Beebe that part of it that Netanyahu got so fed up that he went to Donald Trump. Because he recognizes this is who have really going to be dealing way. I love ID I am Seoul on with trump on this yeah. Mom I I think DUN is long many anti Israel and I've always had my suspicions about this president because. I don't I don't know that that. Barack Obama is the anti Israel I know that he is the yearning to be liked by the rest of the world bright and so because the rest of the world is anti Israel. He is much more willing to placate than he otherwise should be a to mean Israel is a non starter and a discussion we will always be on the air side because if there one part in that world where I'm like. Until I live there and happy palatable the rest of it seems like I would be dead in any moment's notice. What trump tweet it out yesterday I know we have the one on Friday but the one yes there lol I love it agreed to. The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just the club for people to get together talk and have a good time so Stan. Short fuse with that well of course thinks that is not what the UN is it is nothing more than a showpiece. It well it is sometimes sharp. And sometimes of very negative showpiece in this would be a perfect example of that you're I immediately. Thought upon learning what went down here. This goes back to what I said earlier this morning are ready for this this sort of an opportunity for Barack Obama to do what it is that he. He really believes he's I think he's showing his true colors because he just doesn't care. Because. Two to beat the leader of the United States of America and in any way turn your back ordered. And by not taking action turning his back on Israel. Is for sure to meet you as an American. I just cannot I saw Barack Obama PCQ could've gotten elected again you certainly couldn't after he did that. Because that the flushed a taste of so many Americans live announced. It was so negative I I just couldn't believe. That that was the road that he chose to take. And it's so ironic to be uses a billion last week. Old trumps. Trumps picks have some very questionable. Views on Israel and they've tried to do this thing true trust her when it's Obama is the one. And again and I've always been like what's Netanyahu state he seems to like trump. We know he doesn't like Obama you got and yet the media it would never has by the way that constantly trying to do right as we don't know our troops going into Israel and blah blah blah. And this just shows you it Netanyahu told you directly. I think not only did Obama let this happen he wrote this thing right he thinks that the US throated. They let it go on in May they want this to happen. And trumps telling you things will change in January 20 and I sure hope they do because what's what they're doing now in that you win. Hey is useless and B is not America were a way that issue I think I hear it it. It means you may see it is useless but it's counterproductive. 617266686868680. Is attacks on where you take your calls what did you think about what occurred. And did you like it did direction Donald Trump talk on all of this I personally do your heard DB does as well. We wanna hear from you six or 72666868. It is 714100. Of York to boston.com morning champion obamas and ninety. Yahoo! group while the side door of the White House through the trash. All you need to. It's. I don't remember a president leaving. Off their sweet talk about president leaving earlier and I mean they may be sad to leave and never seen a president leave who is just I almost feel like. In some respects vengeful. You know he pardoned everybody leaves. Dylan Netanyahu to go jump little achy knees you know he's just kind of an off everybody and walking now. My survey why can Israel do no wrong in your eyes and I think after our he's not that they are they are an ally and they will be one of our great allies for ever and and people. Surely recognize that. Mike's in Boston hey Mike good morning. I am now mayor Christmas happy new year to everyone thank you might seem do you. I. I don't agree with your Obama and first of all and I have all the show before criticizing you came for supporting well. Indirectly supporting Hillary Clinton so. I've ma I just Colombian open a disclaimer here that this is no Obama Democrat calling. But I do disagree with the approach of the UN vote. That settlements are illegal. This you know there's a lot of Lambert is being stolen by Palestinian people in in the west bank and you know what Israel closed Judea and Samaria it would Israeli via the occupied territories. And I think it's high time that we started talking about it in this country without fearing being called anti semites and anti Israel. Because this is a discussion that is taking place internationally. And as long as journalists and people like you fear reporting this accurately. Israel knock him being chased and we're not going to be in good shape. What kind of shape do you think they're going to be at the UN continues to do stuff like. What kind of shook everything they're going to be a for a team gets the Baum. And Hatcher can answer the question and I can I don't know what the answer is I don't know what the solution is but I can guarantee you that as long as the demographic threat. Is being addressed by stealing land and stealing territory and not giving equal rights as citizens and keep them under occupation. But not going to be a very good then. I don't know the answer to the other questions they ask is I think people more intelligent and more knowledgeable than me should be the ones that are dealing with a question. But continuing a situation where the occupation is is supported. By the United States. Is not a viable solution for Israel. And this is not coming from and anti Israel anti semite nothing. This is reality guys and we have to start talking about in this country about that issue accurately and not just simply continuing her rhetoric. Let's put that's why though why do you think abstaining from a vote. Is leadership and anyway right. Now absorbed I think participating in the vote with all the other countries to let Israel know that they need to find a solution to the problem. And they need to really start talking about peace and not really promoting a one state solution. Were you suppressing part of the population I think that's a good start. But one problem with that philosophy is that you're implicit assumption is that there is a solution sometimes there is a problem would no solution and in this case when most of your neighboring countries raised on d'etre is the destruction of view how is they're going to be peace. How is that the you know this rhetoric how is that the intention of Egypt to destroy Israel Mubarak. Who is a brutal dictator that we supported for thirty years the only reason we didn't option in the Israel and because she was impeached Andrea. Do you think of Iran decides to take on Israel and again we get back to nuclear but let's say Iran drops a bomb on Nara is leaving Egypt gonna step in and. Bibi. Iran has never ever aside from the rhetoric Iran has not cost Andy. Israel he likes the reason that Iran they'll be finished the argument. The reason that the and I'm more I'm by the way I did support Obama with a resolution list with a lot. Because the main concern that people have about Iran being part of the western world is exactly that. We made a huge mistake by supporting the shock. Thinking that she's gonna be able to suppress democratic votes within Iraq Iran is the only Middle Eastern country that has a lot of democratic election in 1954. With moderate. That what you are always attic of high tech I'm gonna get the program at my currently our foreign followed by Mike is that we will go to great pains. To negotiate in good faith with a ran and we will do clan best buy an underhanded undermining. Things towards Israel how that makes sense to you or to anybody is beyond me it just is there's only one country in that region. Where you what is American can be there and feel release are aborted as you keep talking about Palestine and a Palestinian state. Currently. How does the Palestinian operate in Israel. Fairly thorough I write how Israeli operate in a Palestinian state. Not at all okay that's the end of that are rushing for me it's as simple as that it's not complicated people keep trying to. Well you got understanding. Yet some of them to me it isn't it's that simple like there's one that. Will let one I'll buy it didn't go along to get along and there's another that will constantly try to. This is why we go back to Arafat when they had chances time and again. Every time they got close. Somehow fell apart it's right they don't want it because you are only thing they're going to be satisfied with music go on Israel could threaten the US can never let that happen. Have we forgotten who fair Arafat really was and and and by the way. I think there's a lot of parts of this world that are not going to ever live in peace and harmony it. DI DN that this is going to be you're exactly right. That there will be a solution there won't be a solution select. I think what you don't you're saying and I'm saying and I think. Is that we have to find the best resolution. And that keeps our friends safe. Well India until future notice that is we have Israel's back always right on going 978 points on Q Mike you know Israel won Milan and Warren 67 so they're not stealing anything. Again we we go back in that that the areas murky and it's complicated but who started the war in 67 in who won the war. And who and whom do we align behind was that this was this one Obama stepped in it a few years ago when he decides to use pre 67 match ups like right. Also there are no repercussions for the aggression that was done Italy Israel in 1967 apparently like. This is where constant signals from the Obama administration has been anti Israeli can and this is the cherry on top that just why does. Denise is in bed African morning. Good morning and protect my call cheer. Eric. I'm happy you are using do you I agree with you guys aren't aren't black caller like really great let. I implode you know way everybody excel Israel should make it can actually get. But everybody there wants Israel call her and like that they want at its destruction any time they tried it like east. If they get on and again you know they're suicide bombs everywhere. I got warned America I really didn't want to make. I really wonder what's left wing Liberal. Democrats. They shot up by that I can load Muehlegg. And he saw all Ali you're this and is the question asked as you continue to discuss is different friends and people work whatever but. Do you really think Israel wants peace in that region. My answer that question is I do. Do you really think Palestinians and Muslims in general want peace in that read RFI. I actually think they do oh. Their version but there are all my clump right no one else. And that's not acceptable so I didn't catch your constant play. Problem right so we don't duties to go back to the idea that these kind of peace that we are thinking of means supporting Israel. Correct I agree with a hundred billion like a lot of saying look I don't think you're ever gonna find anybody. And people unfortunately and that's why. Aren't going to you know. They think Israel should get that should get like an issue you know years like sixty. You know they try they try and then. Got up and not ever not as they want to beat Gordon and I don't think you can ever changed their mind. Yeah I think you're right in that Denise thank you very much did not talk about my compromising Israel has time and again and in good faith come to the table and made concessions and offered up solutions. In time and again it's not Israel that put the kibosh on this stuff I mean. You weaken pretend that. This is anything other than that but everything on one side comes out of position a position he. The American get a run in what they did me UN. Why is that Jessica any other way to see trump is 100% writing come January 20 I hope trump backs up his words I really do. And by not voting. That that's vocal I think even louder than had a vote been put forth. A 67666868. Morey calls right after the break 128 and the WRK a Boston doc what did you. Or very quick points. This conflict just 3500. Years old it begin was right in this slide at all. Allenby. For oral or who paraded. Through rose alone. I believe in 197800. Years ago. That we just acquired in him on about trying to be a mediator in this conflict. Birdie. West Bank is is rated territory. Occupied by albums. You are sitting here so everybody goes blah blah blah they joke. Boston. New England's. Luke wrote protestantism. Is into Israel into cement it. And nobody at our oh talks about it. Some of fewer claims are reasonable ones on or not I do I'm with you on the West Bank it's an OnStar you look at the match or looking like. That's really weird the way it is to have that now like that. The Golan Heights is a little different what do you do give that back to Syria with what's going on in Syria mean. You know just optically and talking about regardless of the merits of Wright gets one was aware I'm Wear them I'd that to me. Any and all peace talks go with the West Bank is Israel's for evermore and that's. That is a non starter apparently throughout and I you're gonna make that happen. I there is not going to be peace there there is just not going to be in so if there's not going to beat BP's what do you then do. You support that you make darn sure everyone knows what side you are all right and that is. Not eaten really negotiable. Contrary to what's been going on for the last eight years words negotiable yes where's it's a bad you didn't even know that. You're using the wrong gaffes when you visited the or the one timing early presidential limo broke down below us and Foxboro good morning. Good morning happy audit their Christmas thank you. And I just lose. Automated call in response to. Michael comment about that. And turn her back and I you know certainly. Wanted to emphasize it's it's it's troublesome to see Obama. Tarnishing his legacy and his wife. And our I want to underscore. The real what you're saying yeah. It they like to portray them in the media. As they are the boundary dispute. Which it now or fortunately it's it the issue of whether. Arabs should have. 22 persist when he wore an error sweepstakes there aren't there party when he. There are fifties seven. Islamic Conference states the issue isn't whether there should be 5750. Hayden what Cochran states the issue is whether there should be one Jewish. And there's a lot of you know a lot of opposition to the existence of one year. I've been involved with the issue it'll somewhat over the years in. It's really weird that you can start getting into the discussion starts talk about their boundaries and escorted me and in all of a sudden the gold and you will continue the discussion. The goal post a move. Suddenly every time now talking you know talking about all their you know there shouldn't be India's. Is ultimately. What we're seeing Israel at all. It took 67 all of our I mean. And again there's it's that again revisionist history are always. Is this notion that Israel was the aggressor there. Reality I mean come on any non that's what's not that there was only one side saying. Our goal is clear it is the complete destruction. Of their state right. Israel's stated objective was to protect themselves problem. The complete destruction of their state like and yet somehow oh most people in the Arabic world would argue that. This was a an aggression by Israel which is why the West Bank then becomes a thing at skits complete bull. Six months of. 26 X 686868680. Is attacks line. So what do you think what will happen when Donald Trump takes office what will he iron about I hope what how sad and our NATO is doubly true of the UN being. Can we have that kind of influence. Mean but keep in mind we are we. While we do believe as the United States of America we make all decisions we push all of our ideas on other countries and other. You know places can she really do something about the UN and changes. I don't know ward needs to be clear I'm gonna win how it's. How would. The UN ever going to be won it in theory is supposed to. How is it ever going to be other than what trump just told you it is which is a country club. It's a meetingplace for people to feel really important but. All let's say that you can see 88 years of Obama but let's go back for twenty years what is the three most significant things the UN has done in the last. I feel like the only thing that I really good luck coming up that climbing I feel like you know the only thing is that I like the first bush. Went to the UN. In an effort to put together a coalition. So now so good coalition that put together about it Corsica. I mean I I did but that's that's what I think about what the UN has done that sticks out in my mind. In the last you said twenty years you know that's one of the things. He's just out coalition building I guess. As the United States of America as the president of the United States of America yeah I guess you can coalition build without you and. I write the last few again at the callers are much smarter than me on this. Tell me what the major accomplishments of the UN event in the last forty years. 'cause arm wait. You know I get there we have a lot of big meanings and I get that we talk about a lot of big issues but what have they done. Have we got a humanitarian amateurs and assess humanitarian aid was writing those checks right. That's the problem so right so what we've done that are around again that would be coalition building and we'd still be right that Jack's weekend when that when the UN lets you will we all get over the has been you know you have Hugo Chavez there telling. You don't talking about the president of the United States is the gavel and he's being roundly applauded. When you let. You know leaders of Iran come in Libya these long speeches. About that. Remember when you know I get a and they get a dot audited. Than other people walk how win the UN US UN ambassadors gives speeches. Mean whose kid now he zeroing Qaddafi came in I lived in a tent in New York as he wouldn't it because he refused to stay in a hotel. So he stayed in the tent. That that's the other interesting thing about the UN with it sitting in the middle of new York and individuals were allowed to come into this country. To address the UN but every. Twenty years the UN gets moved. So it's going to be in Germany for twenty years and it's going to be in Moscow for twenty years let's move why why does it have to be here why don't we got to foot the bill why we did you with the traffic nightmare. Five away wiser than any decision that the UN makes is never enforced unless it is against Israel. You don't but that's true that's basically two minutes appointment but there's reality to that. I've. Made no NATO is a trickier wind and I. I'm wins trump on NATO but I get why people got up in arms about it. I hit the UN is nothing more than a showpiece. And a here's where to take it to war and here's where to show where these guys sit in these guys hit it's much like eight. When you have a UN and high school and I says he's I'm sort of social studies active right what comes of that. Larry not much the reactive to reality is. Those big oil are very much like what really went in aspect which is it not a lot coming out of their league and our high school kids because it's there's an education associated with that I'm not sure anybody's even open to being educated by the UN. Those who are there I would like I said look here's a here's my five point planning effectiveness under is right. First I'm going to approach anything related to Israel going forward here's the here's. Sort of like mark did a little more reasonably well here's what he's going to not be discussed now will go for yeah. But that map but now here's the thing though I guess my question though is he's he's also threatening you know what do you think should happen with the UN I don't know if president Donald Trump. Will have enough juice to change the culture and what happens at the UN. I mean yeah my museum the checkbook because if he does and having your congress did to cut back you'll change culture and our. 6072666868743. RO WRK Abbas to knock unborn child but that's right I have to say. Nicole. Theoretical you know. Will wouldn't be great this that or some real app couldn't really not very active. Particularly to you're making the united our collective very alarmed and extremely efficient. Speaker that would they'll get a few years back shot patent. You that you peacock to call somebody about it a bit peacock that ship now with few went in and out. Eric quests or urgency. We are so ridiculous. I believe it's up there that CE. Higher notion that you're going to help people are not helpful people like you know what Human Rights Watch from Libya. Every single and you lied to. So are we need. We need to go ahead and you know what I'm wondering which I think there are on the place or could be doing all whole walk. Yep thank you Greg Gary appreciate it. You know I think that UN is like or those DDD. Organizations. And it's time has come and gone. Yeah maybe there was a reason to have a UN in the fifties or the you know of the sixties but I don't know what you know I think its purpose has come and gone. That's the argument I'm railroads are women again trumped by even suggesting maybe we got to rethink these things. You know they're great crisis again it gets back to the Woodrow Wilson quote. You wanna make enemies trying to change something like everything has to be the way it always has barrels here the great happy and these things do change over time the world changes over Bryant. And things get much more complicated overtime and. I tell the press give fatten lays a variety diplomats in particular. And I feel like the UN you know it was an opportunity for. You know representatives from small little places to come forward and two to speak of bear. Issues in heels whereas now the world. I think we're aware of those those places where there's pushes by virtue of the Internet quite frankly you know we just. Did this time is it's is no longer needed. So I don't know I err is human reset your talked about this. I keep trying to think of what I know the UN has dined there there was great in the country birth southern by the friend and I actually can't out fine. I can't think of anything. Aetna and not even humanitarian aid because like I think about what happened in Haiti. We did the UN do really anything about that we used to the united states of the week we should celebrities there to do things. You know and I just I can't remember the last time hour famine in Africa I guess but. And that too has been brought under control to a certain extent and again we're aware of that on other levels without the UN right there with the talent for a. It says five greatest successes and failures as the UN celebrates their seventieth. In between fifteen. Because that is going to be good for. Are you look it up all love polling polls and Bradford good morning vol. They guys hey. States that the UN has much of what tiger is just money and it. And honestly be a part of it really make sense anymore look at what we want what we want heavyweights we're gonna protect itself when asked for permission. And is that the UN just like Diego. He could be restructured there with a pot where it would funding both of them right I mean we really have to rethink. This decision you know. We need to have a new world order tickets alliance and Russia into because Europe the following I. Instantly besides. Print and I also want to be you know have Turkey one of our veto. Ally its final verdict help us just a thought I think we have to rethink and I don't think typically brought back the world changed. Yes the world has changed all your rights didn't need to me feels like a very. Ceremonial. There is somebody said you debate the location. And I just don't see the need for that anymore I've always been a mass. Not announced along are we talked about his. Muted side travelers who want what is the upside and doesn't verses the cost of the things. I get to people logged door and I get people logged talking about the pictures. Or what have we ever right NASA and tank. So this is a list of the greatest accomplishments of the UN by the telegraph and England to SNR thing by the way it's coming gone right it's time is coming on the right. Successes one piece. In the 20% true we have more peace and does it with thanks so that's not as a result of the UN so that's your first of credit. Second wanted to prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic who died before it was reverend forest before they even reached a verdict final and so. That was a show trial if ever there was one against third and owning famine. As I just said. OK so now famine is ended. But OK so but let's prove all right but with all the international organizations in the world as we leave you win. Is UN get that signature I guess one would argue I mean I think one could argue that they were certainly big governing body or they do you know do the they sort of over there with the overseer of all of these organizations but again that. It's over and me and now it's time to move on from that so that's in the past protecting the Galapagos Islands. How does one of your top five achievements why doesn't Greece protection Galapagos Islands by sly joke you know then you get to the failures is the dual failures list there which would be everything but wonder genocide child a candidate factories in the Congo. Cholera in Haiti to which the UN claimed immunity from prosecution in the Iraq oil for food program. That was one of the jigsaw Ashe humanitarian I can write that decade fail. So Bosnia. Several situationally on that but. You think about the hundreds of billions of dollars that have been spent on the UN and 11 of the five greatest achievements of it is the Galapagos. And Leon's. What do we do it's much like NASA it's that's the tank mine is today yet tang and velcro are great but. Members spend an awful lot of money there for these pipe dreams time's coming ago things change. Would the world be better off or worse off without the UN. I don't think macaroni deliberate that are already I would we don't be different we would be OK you hit and I don't know that it's. An amber yeah this is certainly I don't think it's hinge of lead banner I now know that's that it's not so much. That the world would be better off except that there would be more dollars Friedel but. It's just that there's just nothing happening terrorists I should else just a ceremonial place for these countries to meet and two you know tip should stick to I had I think it the most we talk about the UN. Is in January when everybody starts to go to get their speeches and who got up and who loved and who did and that's really what we talk about the UN that is the time of the year we talk about the US. I should point out that list that I just told you of their successes. That was before the global warming how to live under global warming memo came out from the UN that gold is not the Meade tomorrow. So sought out and obviously be a signature achievement because of the UN's jest that great when I think of the UN I think of do gooders and you know I'm not a big person who loves to do gooders I just always feel like that's just a what a waste that ceremonial I think at the World War II movie where James Garner was the guy that. Didn't really wanna be there as opposed the war just ended in garner was the guy you go to if you wanted to get a certain kind of cost the he was the way and he was the guy that could get goods and what he wanted no part of being a soldier of love. The UN is that move. It's there for photo op like it was there for up oh look we're talking and look versioning hands but it there's nothing behind it it's I'm telling you show it's in there to talk about who got up and left. Bob's in Littleton good morning rob. Bigger guys so you right. Good I don't actually have personal experiences. Dealing with UN karma. Under president of a small Ngo that travels to Haiti. Or three times a year. And we've it it's been nothing but grief war. It at least patient people in my experience golf like all Beers. It's in the city. Literally usurp your land pay arm they don't infiltrate and in the economy and any country that they're going to all of their money. Basically is in. Structures that they built in the commissary a bill. They they basically just take over and you very close in either their only job is to be presence literally. Oh I'm leading conflicts are not allowed to engaging. Are in any kind of armed battle or anything like that they're basically just driver on a big commons the quick trucks. And it it's very I mean that there's that pact countries. Held port country in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti was an opportunity for the UN to step up there was that they're sending back because they don't like getting their hands dirty in fact. They're not really capable of doing it because they don't. When you don't do heavy lift thing there for a long period of time and again I doubt it the way Georgia back and try and then you're out. Hey Bob let me ask you something when you when you are exposed to the UN forces. Who do you find make up the majority of the UN force. It is just being an 88 rotating in my country so OK at any given time you know you can have UN orders from Argentina. Or Brazil or. Understand her own little wherever they're coming from the date they basically rotate through. On the app as countries and there might be true three countries represented at a time but I mean there's. There's no. There's no positive interaction I think he should people aren't happy that there they don't do anything. Except take their lands. Honestly Arnold does sound crazy but I mean it's been 883. Product. Think British women. Page in a sense you are not going to be we're out of it. They can and they basically they pride and provoke it from him and then you know computer users US army whatever. It's just it's it's grossly inappropriate and it's it's a wasted issued raised. Money and it hurts our country and I'm sure it's basically the same way in any country. Sure Bob thanks. Aren't they as a result I don't like language they come in they don't speak the language they don't you know. Do remind me of Obama's philosophy which is that if we say something. He will get better and somehow it miraculously happens and then if we just ready big chat right everything will be good. But as we well know the world is much more complicated than that in the country's much more complicated than an overtime you get exposed. 757. Here are the New York jail Boston doc unborn child.
