Alright, I admit it, to begin with I thought it was a spoof but, no, it's all too real. That splendid body of fools, charlatans, murderers and thieves (aka, the United Nations) has succeeded in sinking even lower in public esteem than the profound depths which they have already plumbed. I am grateful (I think!) to The Weekly Standard, via Drudge, for this headline which says it all and which reduced me to helpless giggles:
North Korea to Head U.N. Conference on Disarmament
There is one further item of interest to those of you who enjoy a good belly laugh, although I fear it may not even raise a smile with my American readers. Of the prodigious cost involved in keeping this international 'bonfire of the vanities' blazing away it is:
American taxpayers who continue to foot 22 percent of the bill
(Heh, heh, heh!) Needless to say the most constantly villified country in the UN is the United States of America. Still, it's a noxious, smelly, ill wind that blows no one any good so I am pleased to report that:
Iran’s Mohammad Hassan Daryaei told the Conference meeting: “I would like to congratulate the distinguished ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea for the assumption of the presidency and assuring him of my delegation’s full support and cooperation.”
So that's alright then!
