It’s another one of those “you couldn’t make it up” moments concerning the United Nations.
The brutal crackdown by Syrian President Bashar Assad may finally be getting the attention of world leaders — but apparently not enough to stop Syria from becoming the newest member of the U.N. Human Rights Council. (Yes, you heard that right)
And despite calling for an independent investigation into the crackdown, which has left hundreds dead, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon apparently won’t do much about blocking Syria’s path to the human rights group.
“That’s not really for the secretary general to suggest to a member state,” said Martin Nesirky, a spokesman for the secretary-general, when asked if the U.N. chief would ask Syria to drop out of the running for the post.
Here’s how Syria demonstrates its respect for “Human Rights”…
Given that the UN Human Rights Council has provided a platform for those well know beacons of freedom and liberty such as Cuba, Libya, Egypt, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, doesn’t it make sense to give Syria a place? What about North Korea?
