U.N. puts dangerous Iranian regime on Women’s Rights Commission

If there is ever a moment to see the true hypocrisy of the United Nations and it’s failed mission on human rights all one needs to do is look at the decision made this past week to put the extremist cult like regime of Iran on its Women’s Rights Commission.

What makes this far worse, is that allegedly the United States, along with possibly other western nations, voted to include Iran, as well. It is impossible, however, to know for certain due to the secret vote that took place to put Iran on the commission.

Moreover, the United States under President Joe Biden’s administration, has remained eerily quiet on the matter and has not spoken out – nor did it protest the action, according to Voice of America. Many human right’s activists have expressed outrage over the decision.

The result of the secret ballot also has been met with silence from the U.S.

In Tuesday’s vote, 43 of the 54 nations in the U.N.’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) elected Iran to the Commission on the Status of Women for a four-year term beginning next year. The commission is the U.N.’s principal intergovernmental body dedicated to “the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.”

Iran received the smallest number of votes of the five nations elected to the body. Of the other four elected nations, China and Japan were already commission members while Lebanon and Pakistan will be new additions. Iran currently is not a member of the commission.

Iran’s poor record on women’s rights was under fire at the world body as recently as last month.

Masih Alinejad, an Iranian human rights activist, warned on Twitter of the horrors women are subjected to under the Iranian regime.

“Look at her face,” she tweeted, showing a photo of a young Iranian woman who was disfigured with acid by those accusing her of wearing her hijab (head covering) inappropriately. “This week the U.N. Elected those who three acid on her face for wearing ‘inappropriate hijab’ to its top Women’s Rights Commission. Women of my country Iran are disappointed at the U.N. Don’t legitimize a misogynist regime.”

This administration should be ashamed of itself for not standing up for human rights and dignity. But then again, the only thing this administration appears to be concerned with when it comes to Iran, is reinstating the failed Iranian nuclear deal established under President Obama and rescinded by President Trump. At least, that’s my opinion on the matter.

Taliban Holds Parade for 250 Newly Trained Soldiers with American-Made Weapons Left Behind

As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

On Sunday, Taliban forces held a very bone-chilling parade showing off their captured American-made armored military vehicles and Russian helicopters. The act was “a display that showed their ongoing transformation from an insurgent force to a regular standing army” writes CNN.

The Taliban are no longer terror insurgents fighting against American forces that had once freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

The parade was part of a graduation for 250 newly trained Taliban soldiers, said defense ministry spokesman Enayatullah Khwarazmi. CNN reports, “The exercise involved dozens of US-made M117 armored security vehicles driving slowly up and down a major Kabul road with MI-17 helicopters patrolling overhead. Many soldiers carried American-made M4 assault rifles.”

Tragically, much of the weaponry taunted in the parade by Taliban forces were supplied by the United States to the American-backed government in Kabul during the past two decades. The equipment was to aid an Afghan national force and make it capable of fighting the Taliban.

As forces fled Afghanistan, some of the military equipment provided by western forces was flown into Central Asian Countries in an attempt to avoid it landing in the hands of the Taliban. It remains unclear exactly how much of what did end up in Taliban control is still operational.

American troops destroyed over 70 aircraft and dozens of armored vehicles, as well as disabled air defenses before flying out of Kabul during the frenetic evacuation. CNN reports “Taliban officials have said that pilots, mechanics and other specialists from the former Afghan National Army would be integrated into a new force, which has also started wearing conventional military uniforms in place of the traditional Afghan clothing normally worn by their fighters.”
