The pot calling the kettle black

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on March 28, 2007


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States said on Tuesday it would not seek a seat on the new U.N. Human Rights Council, saying it was not a “credible” body.State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the United States would retain its observer status on the 47-member council, created last year over objections from the United States that rules were not strong enough to prevent rights violators from getting a seat.

    Sadly, I fear this is too true. And as each day passes and the war in Iraq continues (and there are rumors that the U.S. may be planning to do the same to Iran, because of their determination to create nuclear energy – which the U.S. has told them they are not allowed to do), it becomes more apparent that the U.S. government really does have a Napoleon complex. Heaven forbid that the U.S. should ever be held to the same standards to which it holds other countries. *sigh*

    Great post, SB. Please keep writing…
