Glenn Reynolds points us to this Stephen Pollard piece and especially:

Well-connected advisers tell me that if, as now seems likely, the UN refuses to back action against terror, Mr Bush will announce a "temporary" suspension of America's membership, to be accompanied by an offer: if the UN gets its act together and carries out long-overdue reforms, America (and its money) will return.
As appealing as the thought of dumping the United Nations is, what's described above simply isn't going to be seriously considered by the Bush administration. And the reason is best illustrated by the Korean War. That war was the first and last "United Nations" war. The only reason that the United Nations was able to put together the coalition to defend South Korea against the invasion by the DPRK was because the Soviet Union was boycotting the Security Council at the time. There is simply no way that the US will abandon its veto power in the Security Council for even a minute.
