    Human rights in SA?

    Don't make me laugh.

    'No Money Pepe' ruling us as if he were the King.

    TMBOA deciding the Falklanders have NO human rights.

    MADuro locking up a genuine opposition party member for 'sedition'.

    The Cowpat altering the constitution so he can be dictator for life or until somebody murders him.

    Correa still whining like a little child how his drug dealing gangster father was not breaking the law selling drugs, pity he died in jail, they should have hung the bastard, together with his bastard son.

    And of course the shining light in human rights: Cuba. Hopefully, both lights will go out in the next few years. Who will be the boss then, though? Don't worry; it will be another commie bastard with both hands out for 'help'.

    Here's a thought. UN ''peacekeepers', authorised to shoot. One standing behind every argie and spanish politician. Intelligent peacekeepers able to detect an infringement of human rights. And putting a bullet through the head of the criminal. The argie and spanish governments would be gone in days, possibly hours. And the UN wants to 'break down the high walls of corruption' as well. Would it not be an idea to break down UN corruption first? The C-24 Decolonisation Committee is corrupt. THREE consecutive Ecuadorian chairpersons? A committee composed of bigoted individuals with their own agendas? Where are the members from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Fiji, Japan, Kenya, Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland? Where is the advice from this committee on how to be removed from the list? And just what right does a UN committee have to pontificate on territories that aren't UN members? Shouldn't they be able to speak directly to the General Assembly and/or Security Council? UN members have rights. What rights do these countries have to present their case properly, even if they had to, instead of having their case filtered through a corrupt, biased committee?
