Just when I thought they couldn't be any more out of touch...
Belarus and Uzbekistan lead the charge of the loony brigade to lower levels of hell.

UN committee votes to discourage condemning countries on human rights

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - A UN General Assembly committee has voted to discourage UN human rights bodies from condemning any country on human rights, despite objections to the measure from the United States and many European countries.
The draft resolution - sponsored by Belarus and Uzbekistan, both of which have been accused of serious human rights abuses - was approved by the assembly's human rights committee on a 77-63 vote, with 26 abstentions. It now goes to the full 192-member General Assembly for a final vote.Its key provision stresses the need to avoid "country-specific resolutions on the situation of human rights" and the "exploitation of human rights for political purposes."
U.S. Ambassador John Bolton told reporters that the resolution reflected "a real problem with the UN human rights machinery." The new Human Rights Council in Geneva, which earlier this year replaced the discredited Human Rights Commission, has met three times to pass resolutions condemning Israel but hasn't dealt with human rights in Myanmar, North Korea or Sudan, Bolton said

Yet another example of UN hipocrisy and irrelevance.

why are these undemocratic states even part of this organisation??they take advantage of the rights and benefits of democracy yet still commit atrocities and thumb there noses at our way of life.

The only thing the UN is interested in doing is condeming Israel, nary a word about Hamas or Hezbolla and the crimes they've committed it's all about evil Isreal. People being slaughtered in the Sudan, Somalia is a country that is covered in blood innocents being slaughtered daily and again not a word from the UN. It's a dead organization that is on life support and the ones keeping the UN plugged in? The Middle East and Asia, it's become their personal Truancy Officer.
