Maybe not but we're paying a hefty price. Oh...and what they say it is going to cost is usually just a ballpark figure!
Everyone in the United Nations is united on one thing. Make sure America pays the lion's share of everything. The United States pays 22 percent of the organization's “regular” budget and 27 percent of peacekeeping costs in addition to millions of dollars worth of “voluntary” contributions to UN-affiliated agencies not to mention providing the building itself headquartered in NYC. Overall, only five nations — the U.S., Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, and France — finance more than 50 percent of the total U.N. budget.
By contrast, “developing” nations with booming economies like Brazil, China and India pay much less. For example, China, which has become our banker, pays a whopping two percent of the U.N. budget – less than 10 percent of the U.S. contribution.
BTW...$10.5 million for inspections per year? Will the inspectors be driving Bentley's? Trump said he's going to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it. Iran told Barry we want a nuke, $150 billion, and you're paying for the inspections.

UN expects Iran nuke deal monitoring to cost $10.5 million a year
VIENNA (AP) -- A confidential document from the U.N.'s atomic agency says the extra work related to monitoring Iran's compliance with last month's nuclear deal will cost about 9.2 million euros ($10.5 million) each year.
The International Atomic Energy Agency document obtained by The Associated Press also estimates the final tab will be nearly 138 million euros ($157 million) over the life of the pact.
Drawn up for a special IAEA meeting Tuesday, the document says the costs are calculated from the time the deal begins to be implemented, at some point after it is adopted on Oct 18.
The document extrapolates the total cost by saying the estimated annual cost of 9.2 million euros is "foreseen as being applicable for 15 years." That is the expected duration of the Iran deal.
