United Nations - Disarmament - Iran

On Tuesday, the United Nations Commission on Disarmament elected America, Canada, Australia, Iran as deputy for Asian nations.

This is nothing but the United Nations taking a swipe at us. Iran is actively developing a nuclear weapons program and they're going to sit on a disarmament commission? It reminds me of the time in 2004 when Sudan chaired the U.N. Commission on Human Rights during a time of ethnic cleansing in that region. The fox guarding the hen house?

The Islamic Republic News Agency report is a little scarce and doesn't offer any criticism of the vote for reasons that should be obvious.

Cybercast News Service offers a more in depth look at the issue.

Why are we participating in the UN anymore? At it's best it's incompetent, corrupt and useless. At it's worst it protects terrorists, actively works to reduce our liberties and is essentially trying to be the de facto world government.
