    What's more interesting is japan and germany together pay more than the US - $522 million.

    So much for the theory the US makes the UN go around....

    In reality, the Republican Congress always paid late to protest the lack of total dictatorial control over the U.N. So it's possible that Japan was actually paying more than the U.S. for the past 6 yrs.

    BTW, I've recently read those numbers elsewhere. Your numbers are correct.

    Those with vibrant economies pay the most. Question is, what do we get for it?
