How low America has sunk under the fraud.
Even the pathologically leftist NY Times has said that Mugabe should be tried for war crimes.
And this just last week: President Robert Mugabe and his henchmen are accused of crimes against humanity, a British newspaper reported on Saturday, for among other things, "slowly hacking off the limbs and pulling out the teeth with pliers of his opposition's supporters. He had 'enjoyed' torturing victims."
And the UN appoints Mugabe special toursim ambassador ...to where? Hades? And Obama stood by. Silence is sanction. You could just vomit at how third world we are under Obama. And the media says nothing.
Kudos to Harper's Canada, whose brave and righteous leadership once again shames America, but gives freedom lovers hope that all is not lost.
"Canada quits UN agency over Mugabe appointment" Newsday
[Obama, Hillary, Rice silent?]
OTTAWA — Canada is withdrawing from the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) over the appointment of President Robert Mugabe as a special tourism ambassador.
Canada’s Foreign Affairs minister John Baird said Mugabe’s appointment as international tourism ambassador symbolised what was wrong with the UN.
Mugabe is currently under a European Union travel ban because of human rights abuses in his own country.
His appointment is being made by the UNWTO.
In the House of Commons on Wednesday, Baird called the move outrageous, and announced that Canada would be withdrawing from the tourism office next month. Mugabe has been in power for more than three decades and has been blamed for Zimbabwe’s economic ruin, resulting in food and fuel shortages, rampant inflation, high poverty and unemployment.
On Tuesday, the UN body endorsed Mugabe with Zambian President Michael Sata after they signed an agreement to co-host the UNWTO General Assembly in August 2013 in Victoria Falls and Livingstone.
UNWTO secretary-general Talib Rifai paid tribute to Mugabe and Sata for their role in tourism development.
However, United States House Foreign Affairs chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in a statement said: “The continued rewards the UN bestows upon the world’s dictators has reached the point of absurdity. An organisation devoted to world peace and stability is propping up and aiding the very regimes that oppose such ideals.”
