North Korea to Lead UN’s Nuclear Disarmament Group

July 3rd, 2011

This brilliant decision was taken [on June 28].  Following the announcement,

A United Nations summary showed that “all of the delegations that took the floor” welcomed Pyong’s presidency, and that “they looked forward to his stewardship” to revitalizing and strengthening the conference. The summary lists that Canada, the U.K., Iran, China and India took the floor and backed the choice.

A Geneva-based human rights group is calling on the United States and the European Union to strongly protest the appointment.

“Bare months after the U.N. finally suspended Libya’s Col. Muammar Qaddafi from its Human Rights Council, North Korea wins the propaganda coup of heading the world’s disarmament agency. It’s asking the fox to guard the chickens, and damages the U.N.’s credibility,” Hillel Neuer, executive director of U.N. Watch, said in a statement.

I disagree a bit with the U.N. Watch statement only because the U.N. has no credibility left to damage.

    “…the U.N. has no credibility left to damage.” Truer words were never spoken. About the only thing that can be said in defense of its continued existence, and continued U.S. participation, is that if it didn’t already exist we’d have to invent it again. Given the players that will always participate, it wouldn’t be any better.

    Look at today’s headline on Fox News, “N. Korea Paid Pakistan for Nuclear Tech.”!
    Regarding U.N., think why U.N. can pass a resolution, it has to be a wrong enough resolution for China not to veto it. Abiding China’s veto threat over right proposals for so many years, what else can we not put up with?
    After all, it was China that first helped North Korea, Pakistan and perhaps a number of other countries develop their nuclear bombs. Now the US has to beg China to persuade N. Korea to abandon its nuclear program.
