United Nations Chamber Pot

Many people think of the United Nations in terms of Star Trek episodes where a United Federation of Planets reigns benevolently over all in the galaxy except once in a while when the Klingons act up. In reality, the UN can only be compared to the bar scene in the first Star Wars movie where third world despots living high off the hog on their own people's sweat and blood disparage the United States and Israel - their two favorite targets. Our diplomats sit through ludicrous sessions where the worst murderers, thieves, and human rights violators in the world condemn us for doing exactly what their countries do on a daily basis. This YouTube video highlights a few of these liars and cutthroats at work in the august chamber.

I imagine the "Federation" has it's moments too. I'll have to watch the video, though. It takes quite a while to load these things sometimes using satellite.

The Federation is fiction. Unfortunately, the UN motley crew of liars, thieves, and extortionists are all real. What I can't understand, Charles, is why we subject ourselves to ridicule from these hyper hypocrites. One of the really sharp points in the video is Saudi Arabia with its stone age treatment of women being on any human rights panel. The UN is a fraud... a dangerous fraud.
