Iran was elected to a top post on the UN Arms Trade Treaty conference, revealed UN Watch today in an exclusive report.

The Geneva-based human rights group is calling on UN chief Ban Ki-moon, who addressed the conference on the same day, to condemn the selection of the Tehran regime.

Although the U.N. conference website and summary fail to name the 15 members elected to the bureau on July 3rd, UN Watch has discovered that the countries elected to the five regional groups include Iran, Japan, and South Korea for the Asian group; Kenya, Egypt and Nigeria for Africa; Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Ukraine for Eastern Europe; Australia, Netherlands and Switzerland for the Western Europe & Others Group; and Mexico and two others for Latin America.

The United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, which opened last week and runs until July 27, promises to deliver a new agreement to regulate the transfer of arms.


Seriously though, WTF?

Sometimes, on very rare occasions, I get this tiny glimmer of hope that common sense will return to the world......then, the UN drops a hand grenade on my glimmer of hope and I get snapped back into the real world.
