If you lose a war, any war, in any century you do not get to maintain your prewar status quo. A statement coming from an organization like the U.N. is asinine. It is one of the most corrupt organization administrated by dictators, miscreants and pro-communist plutocrats ever assembled into one convenient package. Would they consider returning the property holdings of the U.N. to the indigenous people that once resided on their territories.

Would that include Manhattan Island? Would the Sioux return to Minnesota, where they came from in the late 1700's. Danzig should be made a free city again and Prussia's original borders re-instated, as well.
