The US "needs" the UN? Seriously?

Here's Kofi Annan, defending remarks made by his deputy:
“I think the message that was intended is that the US needs the UN, and the UN needs the US, and we need to support each other"

Huh. Well, I'd certainly agree that the UN needs the US, especially US funding which Bolton threatened to cut, but I can't really see how the US needs the UN. It's not line they're ever there for us. It's a constant battle and in the end, not always that worthwhile.
