Let's Withdraw From the UN

China and Russia sit permanently on the Security Council, North Korea chaired the nuclear disarmament committee, Iran had been guaranteed a seat on the commission for women's rights and now Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe is the UN leader for tourism:

Will the UNWTO’s festivities promote better times for the people of Zimbabwe — battered and impoverished  as they are, due to decades of Mugabe’s thuggish rule? Well, the UNWTO is a UN organization that includes North Korea and Syria, as well as Zimbabwe, among its members; and seated on its 32-member governing board are such tourism-challenged regimes as those of Zimbabe, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Don’t get your hopes up.
