    US - No moral standing to lecture others on human rights

    The Asia Times takes a look at the recent vote on the establishment of a new UN human rights council:

    The vote to replace the largely discredited Commission on Human Rights with the new council was 170-4, with the United States, Israel, the Marshall Islands and Palau voting against the resolution and with three abstentions.

    While the US has said much about the human-rights behavior of many UN member states, there is a strong feeling that Washington and its ambassador do not really have the moral standing to hector others.
