    There really isn't any defending the U.N. on this one. It was an utterly stupid decision to put Iran there given their treatment of women.

    I mean it is ironic being on that commission, and about to give a woman 99 lashes and a death sentence for "adultery"
    Yeah, it's almost like electing Libya to be the chairman of the United Nations Human Rights Commission.

    Start a thread about it then and I will join in and even agree on much.

    However this about a stoning of a woman in Iran, according to their laws, regardless of how barbaric they are. Each country has a right to deal with "criminals" in any way they want.

    Reason why, we must continue to encourage and assist the formation and rise of moderate Islamic regimes. Assist, encourage, foment the rise in personal income and standard of living. Give them something to lose and something to protect so they are less likely to want to go to war.

    Don't be silly.

    My comment concerned Iran, the global press, AND the UN.

    And considering the OP thanked me for it, I think it's pretty much in line with the topic.
