    US isolated on human rights

    Yahoo News informs us that the US is increasingly isolated over the planned UN human rights council:

    While no country got everything it wanted, many said the draft would strengthen the U.N.'s human rights efforts. Japan and the European Union signed on Wednesday night. But the United States announced Monday that it would vote against the council unless the draft was renegotiated to correct what it views as serious deficiencies, especially the chance that human rights abusers could become members.

    Well, given the above, I would hope that the US would also rule itself out of becoming a member, given its appalling human rights record.
