Journal superyooser's Journal: Reform at the U.N. 3

UN Watch:

Dictators Fidel Castro of Cuba and Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus will be celebrating the UN Human Rights Council's likely adoption tomorrow of a new reform package that will see both regimes dropped from a blacklist, while Israel is placed under permanent indictment.

Fair and balanced.

As for the experts on other countries - on Burundi, Cambodia, North Korea, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Liberia, Burma, Somalia and Sudan - all of these may soon be eliminated, as threatened by the Council majority comprised of dictatorships and other Third World countries, under a gradual "review" process.

Excellent. Nothing like a peer review process to keep everyone accountable.

Pending their fate, all experts will be subjected to a new "Code of Conduct," submitted by Algeria in the name of the African group...

In related news, China has authored a Reproductive Rights policy for the world body. And the Taliban will be submitting a new "Dress Code."

  • And so now the UN is going to help them? HUH? Though I guess, betting with the losing horse is a UN Tradition.

    On another issue, you probably didn't see OnLawn's summons [] for a discussion on Genesis- as for some strange reason he deleted it. This is the first time I've seen the comment section survive a journal deletion....
    • When you're posting a journal entry, and pick either of the first two publicize options, comments on the journal entry will survive its deletion. Since the second is the default, this happens fairly frequently.

      Some JE's serve only a temporary purpose.

      SuperYooser, its good to see you are still around. The discussion on Genesis 12 is up, and I hope you can stop by and give it a look.
