This one has been going around for a couple of years now, still it's worth going through again.

Increasingly it looks as though Gen. Clark has it right.

What we find to be most interesting is that despite a massive shift from Republican to Democrat control of our elected federal government, there appears no change at all in our foreign policy, or much else for that matter if you are able set your political prejudices aside and really sit down and examine it.

Sort of makes you wonder who's really running things around here.

West pushes plan to remove Libya from UN rights body

* U.N. Council holds emergency session on Friday

* EU, U.S. and Latin Americans want Gaddafi condemned

* Developing countries resisting, say premature

GENEVA, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Western and Latin American countries on Thursday pushed to have Libya's membership of the U.N. Human Rights Council put under challenge when the body holds an emergency meeting on Friday.

 But the effort -- which falls short of demanding the strife-torn North African country's suspension from the 47-member council -- was strongly resisted by Arab and some Islamic states such as Pakistan as well as by Russia and Cuba.


OK, we have questions, "How is it possible that a country that sanctions the murder of 270 innocent people in the skies over Lockerbie Scotland, is even on something called the "Human Rights Council"?

Wait a minute ... of course ... the United Nations.

Which brings us to our second question, "Why the United Nations?"
