    North Korea to Chair UN Disarmament Conference

    Despite numerous breaches of arms embargoes and continued threats to expand its nuclear weapons program, North Korea has assumed the presidency of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament. In a speech to the 65-nation arms control forum in Geneva, the newly-appointed president, North Korean Ambassador So Se Pyong, said he was “very much committed to the Conference.”
    Appointing a North Korean to chair the UN’s only multilateral disarmament forum is like “asking the fox to guard the chickens,” says Hillel Neuer, of the UN watchdog organization UN Watch. Neuer is calling on the U.S. and European governments to protest the appointment, which he says, “damages the UN’s credibility.”

    Just more proof the UN, is worthless.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Oh, right! We hear the same argument usually from the same people who rail on and on and on about the ACLU....until those same people benefit from the ACLU or the UN. I have found in many cases that the most mouthy detractors haven't much grasp of the subject.

    Re: North Korea to Chair UN Disarmament Conference

    This is like having a Sharia Imam chair the UN commission on Womens Rights.

    You know if you put UN in front of most words it's a negative, as in: UNintelligent, UNintelligible, UNreasonable, UNacceptable, UNaccountable, UNaffordable, UNamused, UNamusing and I will end with UN+++++ingbelieveable.

    With that in mind I say we kick the UN people and their UNthinking organization out of America because they are mostly UN-American bastards.

    Although NK should have been stopped years ago and that this is a very stupid decision, I still support the UN.

    The importance of the UN is UNthinkable.

    Re: North Korea to Chair UN Disarmament Conference

    Other than emergency relief where they are feeding the hungry, giving medical care or helping to dig water wells in the desert, what is the UN good for?

    I think this is just another example of how outdated and useless the UN is.

    BTW, if you are a contractor who does business with the UN, you will probably get screwed out of your money because the UN has no respect for any rules of law and has no morality. It thinks it is above the law and if you do work for the UN, you probably won’t get paid.

    The usefulness of the UN is UNtrue, UNimaginable, UNidentifiable, and the premise that it is, is UNsupportable.

    So I stick to my original idea and we insist the UN, UNass America.

    The UN General Assembly is a battleground, where differences can be solved without war.

    The Security Council is also important, if the US were to leave the UN, it would lose this privilege of being able to decide on major events. China and Russia would gain all the power (which I wouldn't oppose.)

    It is a regulator, although not much, it still does. UN approval still makes an impact.

    It has prevented major wars before. Something that may have to happen again.

    Lastly, it would look bad on the US' part to leave. It tells every other country you don't give a **** about anybodies interests other than yours. Result: Your International opinion plummets.
