Iran To Chair U.N. Conference On Disarmament…
Quote:GENEVA, May 13, 2013 – Iran will chair the United Nations’ most important disarmament negotiating forum during the panel’s May session, which opened today, sparking calls by an independent monitoring group for the U.S., the EU, and UN chief Ban Ki-moon to protest. Click here for UN website.

“This is like putting Jack the Ripper in charge of a women’s shelter,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, the Geneva based non-governmental organization, which announced it will hold protest events outside the UN hall featuring Iranian dissidents.

“Iran is an international outlaw state that illegally supplies rockets to Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas, aiding and abetting mass murder and terrorism. To make this rogue regime head of world arms control is simply an outrage. Abusers of international norms should not be the public face of the UN.”

U.N. officials say Iran’s post is merely the result of an automatic rotation.

But UN Watch rejected attempts to downplay what it described as “a fundamental conflict of interests” and “an act certain to be exploited by Iranian propaganda to legitimize the mullahs’ cruel regime.”

“UN Watch calls on U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, EU High Commissioner Catherine Ashton, and UN chief Ban Ki-moon to make clear that when the United Nations imposes four rounds of sanctions on Iran for illicit nuclear activities, condemns it for illegally arming the murderous Syrian regime, and denounces Tehran’s massive abuse of human rights, this kind of appointment just defies common sense and harms the UN’s credibility,” said Neuer.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd another reason why we should withdraw from the UN.

And in other news, Jeffery Dahmer is giving a symposium on the benefits of vegetarianism.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

How does anyone take that body seriously anymore?

Because, Justin, some of our "parents" in government still view the UN as their firstborn son. Never mind he's a dropout, a boozehound, and frequently making late night calls from the police station. Also, he has several illegitimate children, needs lots of money to pay off bad people, and has the audacity to complain his family doesn't do enough to help him. But so long as he lives, the hard working, honest, dutiful younger sons and daughters will always be in his shadow.

Also, this makes more sense if you're Irish Catholic.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW
Ten*k just summed it up perfectly.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
