North Korea assumes presidency of U.N. arms control conference

“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,” the executive director of UN Watch Hillel Neuer said in a statement protesting the move. “It’s asking the fox to guard the chickens, and damages the U.N.’s credibility.”

Damages the U.N.’s credibility? What credibility is there left to damage?

Britain: Iran Testing missiles with nuclear capability

http://www.jpost.com/IranianThreat/News/Article.aspx?id=227120
Iran has been carrying out covert ballistic missile tests and rocket launches including testing missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Wednesday.
He told parliament the tests were in clear contravention of UN resolution 1929.

Again, the credibility of the U.N.? But then, after the attack on Libya by (largely) the U.S. and Europe, it’s doubtful that any country would ever give up its nuclear weapons programs.

To think that once it was once only lunatic fringe groups like the John Birchers who were claimed to be crazy for advocating that the U.S. get out of the U.N. Can anyone provide cogent reasons for the U.S. to keep subsidizing this vile organization’s budget today?

 

The nuclear cat is out of the bag and, unfortunately, it appears to be leading to its inevitable conclusion. It feels like mid-1930s deja-vu all over again, with the inevitability of world war looming and significant parts of the world either enables it or remain powerless to stop it.

    Yes, being a member of the the UN means never having to say by your leave to Congress when a Democrat president bombs the hell out of some UN disfavored country.

    But on a more encouraging note, this-is-kinda-encouraging.  I shows that recovery naturally starts once the people have hope.  Naturally, there are dangers of yet another crazy strongman grabbing power, but even with just a little hope of the end of the “peronist” and people start to live again.  Just one little election and in 2 years we could see real recovery.

    The US federal government forcibly takes away American money at the point of a gun, to fund this United Nations aid to totalitarian tyrants. And A through Z here, plus the Left, want to increase US taxes because they think it’s too “low” for the recession.

    JKB, it just goes to show that when you hit rock bottom, any improvement is seen as a miracle.

    The harsher the dictatorship, the stupider its works. Did you catch the photo of the WWII-style fighter plane in the museum, displayed among several pillars so that nobody can get a real good look at it? How dumb do you have to be to mount a Heroic Pipple’s Fighter in such a way that it totally loses any dramatic impact?
