Iran to Chair United Nations Disarmament Conference

iran_nuke_0224

Sometimes I can’t help but think that the United Nations has turned into a giant global troll whose only purpose is to outrage critics by violating and destroying every principle it claims to stand for.

If there’s a women’s rights conference, the UN is sure to find a way to put Saudi Arabia or Pakistan in charge of it. If there’s a rape prevention panel, somehow Sudan will be sitting on it. And if there’s a disarmament conference, then the genocidal tyranny rushing to build a nuclear weapon will be the perfect choice.

Iran will chair the United Nations’ most important disarmament negotiating forum during the panel’s May session. The Conference of Disarmament reports to the UN General Assembly and is billed by the UN as “the single multilateral disarmament negotiating forum of the international community.”

Iran will assume the presidency of the Conference on Disarmament on May 27 and hold it over four weeks, until June 23.

The conference chair helps organize the work of the conference and assists in setting the agenda.

The conference and its predecessors have negotiated such major multilateral arms limitation and disarmament agreements as:

• Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons

• Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques

• Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction

• Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on Their Destruction

• Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty

“This is like putting Jack the Ripper in charge of a women’s shelter,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, the Geneva based non-governmental organization, which announced it will hold protest events outside the UN hall featuring Iranian dissidents.

“Iran is an international outlaw state that illegally supplies rockets to Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas, aiding and abetting mass murder and terrorism. To make this rogue regime head of world arms control is simply an outrage. Abusers of international norms should not be the public face of the UN.”

But they are. Which tells you everything that you need to know about the UN.

    It may not be in our self interest to quit the UN… But we should kick the UN Headquarters out of the country…

    Let them relocate to France or The Netherlands, or any one of the Euro – Socialists wants them…

      "It may not be in our self interest to quit the UN… But we should kick the UN Headquarters out of the country… "

      Take the first step and then react to real circumstances, not fantasy.

    I don't see what the problem is; there's no evidence Iran has nuclear weapons. Better them than some fanatical rogue "state" known to possess illegal nuclear stockpiles like, I don't know, the Zionist Entity.

    • Spikey1

      You are correct; The Zionist Entity should get rid of some of their nuclear weapons. The following locations should suffice for dropping them on; The Palestinian people, Iran, Syria, Egypt, Jordan… I'm sure I can think up a few more….

      • PowertodaPeople1848

        Nice, nuclear genocide. And you wonder why people worldwide hate Zionists.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "Nice, nuclear genocide. And you wonder why people worldwide hate Zionists."

          Enemies like you should not be allowed to use the Internet. Liars pretending to be rational "world citizens" as if communists and jihadis hadn't caused enough death and destruction and now they criticize those who put together legitimate defense.

          Are you a communist or a jihadi?

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "I don't see what the problem is…"

      We have willfully blind people everywhere, Thanks for being so honest about your problems.

      "…there's no evidence Iran has nuclear weapons. Better them than some fanatical rogue "state" known to possess illegal nuclear stockpiles like, I don't know, the Zionist Entity."

      We never should have allowed enemies access to the Internet. Guys like this make some Americans think that it's rational to say such things. It's only rational to communists and jihadis.

      Your views are typical of delusional communists and jihadis, who are our mortal enemies. F you very much.

    For the millionth time: The USA needs to get out of the UN along with cutting off funding to them.

    What's next, dracula in charge of the blood bank? ronald Mcdonald heading a vegetarian organization?

      Dianne Feinstein heading the NRA?

    "The conference chair helps organize the work of the conference and assists in setting the agenda."

    Something tells me Israel is going to have a lot to do with the agenda.

  • UCSPanther

    Having Ahmadinejad tell Israel to give up their nukes should have the same effect as the likes of David Duke, Louis Farrakhan and Mark Glenn telling me to give up my guns.

    It just ain't gonna happen…
