What is Wrong with Africa and the UN

From the BBC:

Zimbabwe has been elected to head the UN's commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) despite strong objections from Western diplomats.

They had said Zimbabwe was unsuitable because of its human rights record and economic problems. It is suffering food shortages and rampant inflation.

But Zimbabwe has dismissed such criticism, calling it an insult.

The country was chosen by other African nations....

That's right, Mad Bobby Mugabe and his ZANU-PF goons, who have destroyed Zimbabwe, will be heading up a commission on development. And, this monstrosity was brought about by the votes of other African states.

Sheer insanity! It is things like this that make it impossible to take seriously anything that the UN does these days.
