United Nations Names North Korea Chair of Conference on Disarmament.

Once again the United Nations is proving itself irrelevant and useless. At the very least the body has proved yet once again, by naming North Korea chair of the U.N. Conference on Disarmament that  it is a total joke.

The Weekly Standard
On Tuesday, the United Nations again made itself an international laughing stock – except perhaps to the American taxpayers who continue to foot 22 percent of the bill – by appointing North Korea chair of the U.N. Conference on Disarmament. That would be the same North Korea that, according to an article this week by Senator John Kerry, head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has “twice tested nuclear weapons…is developing missiles to carry them…has built facilities capable of producing highly enriched uranium for more nuclear weapons” and has defied a U.N. arms embargo by exporting weapons and sensitive technologies to rogue regimes.

Alas, Senator Kerry is also one of the lead champion of the United Nations in the Senate. According to the U.N., "The Conference is funded from the UN regular budget, reports to the General Assembly and receives guidance from it."

North Korea assumes the Conference chairmanship by being the next state in the alphabetical rotation of the 65 members, which include five nuclear weapons states and 60 other countries such as Iran and Syria. North Korea will preside over the Conference for a four working-week period.

North Korea’s representative, So Se Pyong, was enthusiastic about his new job. He announced that he was “very much committed to the Conference” and that during his presidency he “welcomes any sort of constructive proposals that strengthened the work and credibility of the Conference on Disarmament.” He also said that “he would do everything in his capacity to move the Conference on Disarmament forward.”

That might make sense, if by “forward” he means toward a nuclear winter, or by “constructive,” he means steering clear of anything that might impede North Korea. The official mandate of the Conference looks a bit different and includes “all multilateral arms control and disarmament problems” with the following “main areas of interest”: “cessation of the nuclear arms race and nuclear disarmament; prevention of nuclear war, including all related matters.”

North Korea’s chairmanship was heralded by other U.N. aficionados, including the Iranian delegate to the Conference. {Continue Reading}}

Isn't it time the U.S.A. pulls the plug on the charade and put the taxpayer's money to better use?

  1. North Korea heading disarmament. May as well put Bill Clinton in charge of women's rights, OBL (if he was alive) on the anti-terrorism commission, Obama head of truth in journalism, and last, the wolf to guard the chicken house. My God, our continuous membership in the UN needs to be addressed during the next Presidential campaign because enough is enough of this stupid and now festering decadent organization. If the US was to leave the UN would collapse not only from their corruption, but bankruptcy as they wouldn't be able to come close to coming up with the money that the US wastes in this stupid money pit. If any candidate (other than BO as he intents to rule in the Security Counsel someday. Not to mention everything out of his mouth is a lie) was to promise to get us out of that organization would most likely win with 67% of the vote.

    I, nor any other rational thinking individual, could not have said it better!
