Nothing. Just look at Syria which actually has violations going on. And what does the UN do? Leave. And where are the resolutions related to Syria? Silence.

But generate "0" sales tax revenue for NYC since they are all tax exempt.

Hey, IMO, the land the UN currently occupied would be much better used as a riverside park.

So Iran is our friend, Israel is turning into our enemy and Putin is the global Diplomat of Peace.
The desperate rebels in Syria that so badly needed our help via an invasion just fell off our priority list.
Meanwhile the Pope prefers a broken church, is coming around on gays and the US closed their Embassy to the Vatican because of security concerns.

My what interesting times we live in.....

It would be better just to turn it into a public multilevel parking lot with a park on the top memorializing absolutely nothing.
