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. Just when you thought that the United Nations couldn't get more ridiculous...

    It's hard to believe that it's not some over-the-top Saturday Night Live skit. No decent, sane person would make such a move.

    But then, when has the U.N. been home to decent, sane people?

  2. It's not important. The symbolism is obvious, and funny, really. But it doesn't tanglibly mean anything.

  3. JMJ - Perhaps. Then again perhaps not.

    Question... Are you a betting man? Do you hedge your bets?

    What's your final call dude?

  4. Les,

    I am not a gambling man. Gambling is like cocaine - an @$$#@!!#$ drug. I just know a farce when I see it.

    We have bigger things to worry about.

  5. JMJ - YOU'RE RIGHT, THE UN IS INDEED A FARCE!

    Good call if that is what you meant.

    However, You being a progressive statist my guess is you actually buy the BS pushed by UN advocates.

    My take is we get little to nothing for our 22% subsidy of this farcical organization.
