Comrade Obama to Chair UN Security Council

How’s this for symbolic:

Barack Obama will cement the new co-operative relationship between the US and the United Nations this month when he becomes the first American president to chair its 15-member Security Council.

The topic for the summit-level session of the council on September 24 is nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear disarmament — one of several global challenges that the US now wants to see addressed at a multinational level.

The odds of Dear Leader lifting a finger to prevent nuclear proliferation are slim. Unilateral disarmament, on the other hand, has long been a cherished dream of the leftist fringe he represents.

[Remarks by Susan Rice, US envoy to the UN] were the latest by the Obama administration to emphasise a shift from the strategy of the previous Bush administration, sometimes criticised by its UN partners for seeking to use the world body principally to endorse its own unilateral policies.

The wretched dictatorships most people have to live under needn’t worry; Chairman Zero has made it clear from the beginning that like the UN, he is not the least inclined to advance American interests.
