Can The UN Be Any More Irrelevant?

EXCLUSIVE: U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women's Rights

NEW YORK — Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged "immodest."

Just days after Iran abandoned a high-profile bid for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, it began a covert campaign to claim a seat on the Commission on the Status of Women, which is "dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women," according to its website

I have nothing to add other than a question.

When the Hell are we going to cut off funding and kick these parasites out of the US?

i remember a few days ago saying at another blog when i read this news, that i'd be very surprised if they weren't elected to this position.

The U.N. building in NYC sits on some very expensive real estate. A waste of that real estate at the moment, IMO.

Are you effin' kidding me? IRAN?!?

They just announced they would arrest any woman they deem too tan!

I agree, Chuck. Why are we not cutting funding and kicking these despots the hell outta here? Without our money, the UN would crumble straight away. I imagine, too, if we had the guts to pull out other western countries would follow suit.

I'm linking to this.

But, this thing about the women's commission is NUTS...just NUTS, Chuck.

Chuck said...

MK, we supply 25% of their funding here in the US. This pisses me off so much

AOW, quite frankly they could tear it down and build a brothel in it's place and the property would be put to better use.

Brooke, it's stunning. Thanks for the link

Z, you've gotta love it.

I agree, as useless as it is, the UN seems to get worse with each decision it makes. The sooner we get out, the better.

Karen Howes said...

Excellent question, Chuck. When indeed. It's not just irrelevant, it's evil.

Chuck said...

Phil, there doesn't seem to be a bottom with them

Karen, good point
