Default U.S. Doesn't Object, So Iran Gets a Seat on U.N. Women's Rights Body

Never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity...

U.S. Doesn't Object, So Iran Gets a Seat on U.N. Women's Rights Body

Quote:
The Obama administration on Wednesday criticized Iran’s election to the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) – but neither the U.S. nor any other delegation objected when given the opportunity to do so, thus allowing Iran to get the seat “by acclamation.”

Iran will now serve on the CSW, a body dealing with gender equality and the advancement of women, for another four-year term, having already been a member since 2011.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power took to Twitter to express her views: “Yet again Iran unopposed & was ‘elected’ to Commission on Status of Women. Given record on women’s & human rights, this is an outrage.”

But Richard Grenell, who served as spokesman for four U.S. ambassadors to the U.N. during the George W. Bush administration and is a close observer of the world body, was unimpressed with her reaction.

Ambassador Power can tweet her outrage after the fact all she wants,” he said. “She should have been in the room for the vote and demanded a secret ballot rather than allow an automatic acclamation by her silence.

It is hard for a president to do anything when all he does is play Switch Thumbs day in and day out.

The
Don't you understand, the Iranians are negotiating with us. If we offend the Iranian theocracy in any way they might break off talks. Who cares if the Iranian theocracy oppressed women, is building nuclear weapons to wipe Israel off the map and wants to appoint a hostage taker of US diplomats to its US delegation, in Obama's fundamentally transformed America WE are obligated to dance to whatever tune the mullahs call. Obama believes that he can simply talk the Iranian thugs into becoming peaceful members of the international community. It is the quaint delusion of a community organizer.

I agree with you a 100% mikeyy, but do you think Iran's theocracy that is hip deep into Sharia law is going to get them there?

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