Default US, China, Cuba, Saudi Arabia elected to UN rights panel

The neo-cons were stupid but they were right about one thing: the United Nations is a fucking joke.

Saudi Arabia just recently granted women the right to drive cars. I think women are still barred from voting. Meanwhile both Cuba and China continue to hold thousands of political prisoners.

Who else doesn't feel like being lectured to by such autocratic regimes? *raises hands*

I don't understand Cuba is there. China obviously can be reasoned as a political move within the UN, and I guess Saudi Arabia too because of oil? Plus You have an influential Islamic country and Asian country along with the U.S. Maybe they were going for different view points.

lol, that is too funny.

I heard the US, Laos, Somalia and Haiti were heading up the monetary council.

The UN is a f*cking joke. Politics is a f*cking joke until the day you can tell people what is what.
