RUSSIA LOSES SEAT ON U.N. COUNCIL BUT AMERICA AND SAUDI ARABIA DON'T?
Russia was defeated in its bid to be re-elected as a member of the UN's Human Rights Council, the most prestigious panel in the UN system designed to examine global human rights.
But it was close. Russia lost to Croatia by just two votes, 114 to 112, with Hungary claiming the Eastern Europe region's other remaining seat. UN General Assembly voted in a secret balloting process that has no vetoes.
WHAT UTTER HYPOCRISY!
FIRST, THE U.N. ITSELF IS GUILTY OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE!
WE KNOW WHAT U.N. "PEACEKEEPERS" HAVE DONE IN EVERY NATION THEY HAVE EVER BEEN IN...
RAPED, TORTURED, MUTILATED, ENSLAVED, SEXUALLY MOLESTED CHILDREN, ROBBED, PILLAGED AND MURDERED UNTOLD THOUSANDS.
"As Murphy points out (Murphy, 2006) , “[t]here seems to be little alternative to the present system whereby U.N. forces are prosecuted by their relevant national authorities” (2006, p. 542).
While it is unlikely that troop-contributing countries would be willing to cede their jurisdiction over their nationals accused of criminal offenses, “the U.N.’s position that TCCs alone are responsible for discipline of military peacekeepers, and that it is powerless to intervene, is no longer acceptable” (Defeis, 2008, p. 214).
Hence, as long as criminal accountability of U.N. military personnel accused of sexual exploitation and abuse depends exclusively on the cooperation with the troop-contributing country, reports and allegations of sexual offenses committed by U.N. personnel will continue to emerge.
While it is true that the issue of sexual exploitation has been broadly addressed by the United Nations in the last decade, there is need for further reforms which will ensure that perpetrators are held criminally accountable for their actions and that the number of sexually exploited victims by U.N. peacekeeping personnel is significantly reduced."
THE U.N. NOT ONLY DOESN'T ALLOW NATIONS AGAINST WHOM THESE "PEACEKEEPERS" COMMIT CRIMES TO PUNISH THEM, THE U.N. ITSELF HAS NEVER BEEN KNOWN TO EXACT REAL PUNISHMENT ON ITS FORCES, AS IS SEEN IN THAT ARTICLE,
UNTIL INTERNATIONAL OUTCRIES GREW TO SUCH A PROPORTION THAT THEY HAD NO MORE CHOICE BUT TO BEGIN AT LEAST PRETENDING TO PUNISH A FEW.

AND JUST THIS PAST FEBRUARY, TIME MAGAZINE WROTE
New Allegations of Sexual Abuse by U.N. Peacekeeper.
THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS BY U.N. FORCES CONTINUES!
WHY WOULD THE U.N. EVEN BE ALLOWED TO SEAT A HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL WHEN IT DOESN'T ENFORCE HUMAN RIGHTS WITHIN ITS OWN RANKS?
SECONDLY, HOW CAN THE U.N. JUSTIFY KEEPING AMERICA, WHO AT SAUDI ARABIA'S BEHEST HAS SUPPLIED HOUSE OF SAUD WITH WEAPONRY AND 'INTELLIGENCE' SO THEY CAN CONTINUE KILLING YEMENI CIVILIANS, HAVING BOMBED THE HELL OUT OF YEMEN FOR YEARS.
THE U.S. HAS CARRIED OUT DRONE STRIKES FOR SAUDI ARABIA FOR YEARS AS WELL:
"Throughout the history of the program, there have been 16 air strikes and 159 drone strikes in Yemen. With the exception of the first lethal drone strike in Yemen in 2002, all of them have been launched during the Obama administration."
THE U.S. JUST BOMBED YEMEN A FEW WEEKS BACK AND IS ABSOLUTELY GUILTY OF KILLING CIVILIANS THERE, AND IN SYRIA WHERE AT LEAST 400,000SYRIANS HAVE DIED, IN LIBYA, IN AFGHANISTAN, IN IRAQ, IN PAKISTAN, IN SOMALIA, IN BOSNIA, IN OVER 30 NATIONS ** AROUND THE GLOBE SINCE WORLD WAR II.
WE HAVE ALSO COVERTLY AIDED VERY QUESTIONABLE NATIONS IN MILITARY COUPS OR 'CHANGE OF POWER' AND DENIED IT.
STUDIES HAVE PUT THE U.S. DRONE KILL RATE OF CIVILIANS AT BETWEEN 4% AND 35% EVERYWHERE WE FLY THOSE!
THE U.S. HAS ATTACKED ITS OWN CITIZENS DURING 'OCCUPY WALL STREET' AND OTHER PROTESTS SINCE 1950, AND IS ATTACKING AMERICAN INDIAN PROTESTERS AS I TYPE.
VIDEO EVIDENCE OF THE U.S. TORTURING PRISONERS IN IRAQ AND GUANTANAMO ABOUND, BUT THE U.S. GETS A SEAT ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL?
IS THE U.N. BLIND, STUPID OR JUST A SICK JOKE?
WE AMERICANS HAVE BEEN LOSING OUR HUMAN RIGHTS SINCE AT LEAST 1917, AND FOR DAMNED CERTAIN SINCE THAT "PATRIOT ACT"!
HOW DARE THE U.N. OUST RUSSIA AND ALLOW THE U.S., THE U.K., SAUDI ARABIA, CHINA AND CUBA TO SIT ON THAT COUNCIL?
SAUDI ARABIA, WHICH DOESN'T ACKNOWLEDGE HUMAN RIGHTS EXCEPT FOR HOUSE OF SAUD, WHO STILL BEHEADS PEOPLE AND ALLOWS CHILD BRIDES?
CHINA...KING OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS FOR DECADES?
AND JUST THIS YEAR... Report: China Had Worst Year Ever for Human Rights Abuses
China Human Rights | Amnesty International
CUBA...UNDER CASTRO'S REIGN SO LONG AS HE LIVES?
THE U.K., WHICH STILL CLINGS TO ITS "COLONIES" AND WON'T INVESTIGATE MURDERS IN NORTHERN IRELAND WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN COMMITTED BY BRITISH TROOPS AND IS CARRYING OUT DRONE STRIKES IN SYRIA JUST AS THE U.S. IS?
IS THERE REALLY ANY NATION ON EARTH THAT HAS NOT BEEN GUILTY OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS?
THE U.N. IS NOT AN INSTRUMENT OF PEACE BUT OF GLOBAL CONFLICT.
IT DOESN'T SEEK TO BETTER NATIONS BUT TO TAKE NATIONS, TO DOMINATE, TO CONTROL EVERYTHING.
WE HAVE THIS INTERNET WHICH LINKS US TO FACTS IN SECONDS.
DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, GO SEE THE FACTS ABOUT THE U.N.
I LOVE MY COUNTRY, BUT I LOATHE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THE POLITICIANS WHO DAILY ARE TRAITORS TO OUR CONSTITUTION AND WHORES TO WALL STREET AND ITS BANKERS.
I CAN ASSURE YOU, PEOPLE OF EARTH, THE USA IS UNDER SIEGE...FROM WITHIN...
IF WE DESERVED A SPOT ON ANY VALID COUNCIL FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, I'D SAY SO.
PROBABLY NOT, BUT DOES RUSSIA DESERVE TO BE OUSTED WHILE THE LIKES OF THOSE LISTED ABOVE ARE NOT?
I CALL THAT HYPOCRISY.
**List of countries the USA has bombed since the end of World War II
