Speaking of human rights 

In the last post I criticized the UN for giving all manner of unsavory nations equal voices, and decried the result of that policy--abject failures to actually do something about the problems of the world.

Well, since I haven't posted anything about Zimbabwe in a while--at least not of any length--I thought this would make a good time to do so.

The latest action in Mugabe's miserable failure of a land reform policy is to confiscate farm equipment from people whose land has already been confiscated, and then give it to the people who now occupy the land, who have shown no inclination to actually farm. I wonder if the so-called Commission on Human Rights will address Zimbabwe's human rights violations.

Oh wait... Zimbabwe is a member of the Commission. Of course. Along with Cuba and Sudan, naturally.
