Syria on human rights council a 'sick joke': Baird

OTTAWA - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird calls it a "sick joke" that the government of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad could get a seat on the UN Human Rights Council.
The man is right, of course.
"It would do irreparable damage to the United Nations and likely would be the biggest blow that the United Nations has taken since its formation," Baird said during a teleconference Friday after the Friends of the Syrian People meeting in Paris.
I tend to disagree with that point. The whole circus is already damaged beyond any possibility of repair.

The UN, better known as the Dictator's Club, already is a sick joke.

Funny how Libya under Qadaffy was also on the HRC while he was killing thousands of his people too.

I guess that killing your people is a prerequisite for membership to the HRC.
