More Of The Same At The U.N.

The new (and improved?) Human Rights Council replaces the old Human Rights Commission.
China, Cuba, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Azerbaijan, countries cited by human rights groups as not deserving membership, were among the 47 nations elected to the council. But in a move hailed by the same groups, both Iran and Venezuela failed to attract the needed votes.
Is this progress? Maybe, for the U.N.
