United Nations

How stupid does one have to be to regard the UN as a serious institution?  Add one more miserable joke to the record -- Robert Mugabe as UN ambassador:

Feckless UN bureaucrats have tried to ban Dante and give Mt. Rushmore back to the Native Americans. Now comes news that serial human rights violator and war criminal Robert Mugabe has been appointed as an International Envoy for Tourism. The Guardian reports this development with wry understatement:
Improbable as it seems, the man widely accused of ethnic cleansing, rigging elections, terrorising opposition, controlling media and presiding over a collapsed economy has been endorsed as a champion of efforts to boost global holidaymaking.
Improbable, perhaps, only to those unacquainted with the United Nations.
