Iran is nothing like NK. There is a opposition. That is why they occasionally of unrest in Iran. You think it's a joke because you don't know much about Iran. This could end up being a good thing. Iran is not Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan. They are far more connected to the west as a people than they are to theocracy.

This is just like having North Korea and Syria on the human right council ay the UN, it's a ****ing joke.

No mikeyy, I know Iran very well as I keep up with the news. This is from a UN report.

Quote:
"Today, I report with deep regret that despite overtures and announcements emanating from the newly elected Iranian government, and perhaps even in spite of modest attempts to take steps towards reform, the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran remains of serious concern," he said at the beginning of his press conference.

"Hundreds of political prisoners continue to languish in detention, often for nothing more than the alleged 'crime' of expressing an opinion or belief. Members of ethnic, religious, and sexual minority groups face harassment and persecution for advocating for group rights, worship, or communal heritage, when such advocacy deviates from officially-sanctioned positions," the Special Rapporteur continued.

The report said that addressing the continuing surge in the number of executions carried out in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed said, "the Iranian Government continues to execute individuals at an alarming rate, prompting a number of UN officials and Special Procedures, including myself, to call twice over the past month for an immediate moratorium on the practice. Most of the executions carried out are for alleged drug trafficking-related crimes, which do not meet international standards of 'most serious' to qualify for application of the death penalty."

What does this have to do with anything? We come up short in UN reports because we have more people in prison than any other country. What does that tell you/ Woman in the US make a 3rd less than men. Maybe we shouldn't be allowed on this committee.

This is a mikeyy quote; "Iran is nothing like NK. There is a opposition. That is why they occasionally of unrest in Iran. You think it's a joke because you don't know much about Iran. This could end up being a good thing. Iran is not Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan. They are far more connected to the west as a people than they are to theocracy. "


Then when it is pointed out just how much Iran is like the countries he listed he is quoted as saying; "What does this have to do with anything? We come up short in UN reports because we have more people in prison than any other country. What does that tell you/ Woman in the US make a 3rd less than men. Maybe we shouldn't be allowed on this committee."

mikeyy goes on a hate America rant and tries to move the goal posts he himself erected. Geez mikeyy this is why you can't be taken seriously, you make no sense at all you are just all over the board.

At least I do my own thinking and don't need it provided to me. I know it's over your head but the fact is it may work out well. Iran is split nationally as it is. Maybe having to face questions about woman will make them have to say things out loud that cause more internal upheaval. Try to think outside how this effects your relationship with Obama all the time. There is more to life than that really.

So I take it you agree with her decision to whine about Iran being on the Women's Rights Body, when she could have done something about it and didn't. Sounds about right for you, defend b.o.s decision no matter how stupid.

As for b.o.'s incompetent appointments, his record speaks for itself.

Women making a third less then men is a Democratic talking point. It doesn't make a job to job comparison. It just looks at America as a whole without taking into account the facts that women take more time off and work at more part time, lower paying jobs than men simply to have the flexibility to raise a family.

If you really did do your own thinking, you would check this out rather than just taking a politician's word for it.
