Time to get U.S.A. out of the U.N., haven for despots

The United Nations has long been a haven for tyrants, despots, thugs and abusers of human rights. An example is Libya. You will recall that Libya rose to prominence as a virtual Soviet satellite under Moammar Qaddafi, and has compiled a record of attempted subversions of Egypt and other African nations.

Qaddafi has also allied himself with the unspeakable Idi Amin of Uganda and has befriended Zimbabwe’s ruthless Robert Mugabe. Libya’s secret police and revolutionary committees employ arbitrary arrests and torture to ensure that human rights do not exist for the nation’s oppressed millions.

And Qaddafi’s involvement in international terrorism became indisputable when his regime was found guilty of the 1988 downing of PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, with the loss of all 270 aboard.

This above all is why the United Nations’ 53 members of the Human Rights Commission elected Libya to chair its proceedings. It is time to get the U.S.A. out of the United Nations!

Sincerely for the John Birch Society, the Constitution and Liberty.
