A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Useless U.N.: I've made no secret over the past 2+ years that I've been writing here of my disdain for the United Nations. This assembly of the world's nations gives as much credibility to liberal democracies like the United States, Britain, Japan as it does to tyrannies like Iran, North Korea and Sudan.

Yesterday, the U.N. seated Sudan -- a nation where the government "has been accused of backing militias that are destroying villages, executing civilians, raping women and displacing hundreds of thousands of people."

This is a commission the United States was kicked off of a few years ago. A commission that had Libya holding the chairmanship. A commission that had Cuba sitting on it.

And Sudan isn't the end of it. According to the article Vietnam and/or Pakistan will also have a seat on the commission before the week is out.

All nations do not have equal legitimacy. Nations with unelected, tyrannical leaders who use starvation, rape and torture as political tools have no place on the U.N. Human Rights Commission. The fact that we see stories like this every year as new members are chosen is just more evidence that the U.N. is a failure.
