In its rapid lurches toward a state of complete entropy, the United Nations has voted
Zimbabwe as head a key U.N. body charged with promoting economic progress and environmental protection. That's right, a country
that has been criticized by the West and domestic opponents for repression, corruption, acute food shortages and gross economic mismanagement that has driven inflation above 2,000 percent -- the highest in the world,
has been put in charge of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development.
Let's see, a UN Oil-for-Food billion-dollar UberGrifter named Malloch Brown opposes Wolfowitz --- unpopular at the World Bank mainly because of his anti-corruption crusade. And Zimbabwe, with a 2000% inflation rate, is put in charge of sustainable development.
No funhouse mirror on the planet can distort as much as the United Nations, not only a laughingstock, but a posterboy for how the Utopian Vision of a World Government has gone oh so terribly wrong.
Adlai Stevenson must be rotating in his tomb.
