    If only the U.N. were merely useless

    If only the U.N. were merely useless

    How long before the U.N. demands Bernie Madoff be appointed head of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

    In what one critic called a move akin to placing Bernie Madoff in charge of thwarting fraud on the stock market, Iran has been elected as one of the 15 members of the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty conference….

    The choice of Iran was condemned by UN Watch, a Geneva-based monitoring group. “Right after a UN Security Council report found Iran guilty of illegally transferring guns and bombs to Syria, which is now murdering thousands of its own people, it defies logic, morality and common sense for the UN to now elect this same regime to a global post in the regulation of arms transfers,” said Hillel Neuer, UN Watch’s executive director.

    On Friday, a UN report written by members of the Security Council’s Iran sanctions committee found that “Iran has continued to defy the international community through illegal arms shipments.”

    Meanwhile, back in the Twilight Zone, Syria looks likely to land a spot on the U.N. Human Rights Council in 2014:

    Despite its poor record on human rights, Syria is on course to winning membership on the UN Human Rights Council, UN Watch reported on Thursday.

    UN Watch, an NGO that monitors the international body’s activity, cited a draft resolution presented in Geneva in which the US opposed Syria’s candidacy for a Human Rights Council seat in 2014. The resolution, which is also supported by the European Union, said Damascus “fails to meet the standards” for Human Rights Council membership.

    President Bashar Assad’s regime is, however, likely to get a spot on the 47-nation council “due to the prevalent system of fixed slates, whereby regional groups orchestrate uncontested elections, naming only as many candidates as allotted seats,” according to UN Watch.

    Do you think taking off the top 10 floors is enough?

    John Bolton would have been the UN Ambassador for the entire Bush Presidency if only former Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee, (the current POS governor of RI), had voted for confirmation while in the Senate.

    I like Bolton for one simple reason, he tells it like it is.

    As far as I’m concerned, the UN building could be turned into a USO hotel for service members…

    Just a thought: Mohammed Atta and his gang of terrorists flying the planes into the UN building instead of the Towers and Pentgon.

    This was sent to me by a strong Second Amendment supporter. I am not able to include the links for the Petition. Maybe go to dickmorris.com . I signed it yesterday.

    Dear Friend,
