On Tuesday, the United Nations again made itself an international laughing stock – except perhaps to the American taxpayers who continue to foot 22 percent of the bill – by appointing North Korea chair of the U.N. Conference on Disarmament. That would be the same North Korea that, according to an article this week by Senator John Kerry, head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has “twice tested nuclear weapons…is developing missiles to carry them…has built facilities capable of producing highly enriched uranium for more nuclear weapons” and has defied a U.N. arms embargo by exporting weapons and sensitive technologies to rogue regimes.
North Korea’s chairmanship was heralded by other U.N. aficionados, including the Iranian delegate to the Conference. Iran’s Mohammad Hassan Daryaei told the Conference meeting: “I would like to congratulate the distinguished ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea for the assumption of the presidency and assuring him of my delegation’s full support and cooperation.”
Iran’s support is telling. Just yesterday Iran's Revolutionary Guards tested 14 long-range missiles that could carry a nuclear weapon, with the express purpose of hitting U.S. interests and Israel, according to the head of their aerospace division.
Congratulations also poured in from such upstanding world citizens and U.N. fans as China. China’s Wang Qun “welcomed the presidency of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.”
The total irrelevancy of the U.N. has now reached the point where you could mistake actual articles about their workings for bits from "The Onion".

GENEVA — North Korea expressed Tuesday its readiness to engage with the UN Conference on Disarmament on nuclear arm control talks, which have been in a deadlock for the last two years.
North Korean ambassador So Se Pyong, who took over the rotating presidency of the 65-nation body on Tuesday, said: "I am convinced that the conference is able to achieve concrete results... I am very engaged in moving the conference forward."
He added that a group of experts advising UN chief Ban Ki-moon on disarmament issues will meet diplomats on Thursday informally in Geneva to discuss the current situation.Pakistan's lone public opposition in starting talks on the production of new nuclear bomb-making material has led to the deadlock in discussions at the Conference on Disarmament since 2009.
The second annual session of the conference ends Friday, with the next session to begin in August
