This is priceless:

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/africa/05/12/un.zimbabwe.ap/index.html

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Zimbabwe won approval on Friday to head a key U.N. body charged with promoting economic progress and environmental protection despite protests from the U.S., European nations and human rights organizations....President Robert Mugabe, an 83-year-old who has ruled Zimbabwe since it gained independence from Britain in 1980, 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. Mugabe has acknowledged that police used violent methods against opposition supporters.

Yeah, I bet they guide everyone right into a brighter future.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

This can't be real.  He's completely destroyed his own country's economy, and now he's gonna help the rest of us? 

This is why the UN is a joke.
