Some days it just feels like you fell down the rabbit hole and woke up in a really strange place. To wit, the new president of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament is — So Se Pyong of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
In his initial address to the Conference as president, So Se Pyong of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea said that the was very much committed to the Conference and during his presidency he welcomed any sort of constructive proposals that strengthened the work and credibility of the body. He was ready to work closely with all members to provide the grounds for strengthening their work. As president, he would be guided by the Rules of Procedure and take into account the position of each delegation to find common ground on substantive issues and procedural matters as well. With their support and cooperation, he would do everything in his capacity to move the Conference on Disarmament forward.
The retiring president, Ambassador Marius Grinius of Canada in his farewell address said:
[H]e would argue that the Conference on Disarmament was on life support because it no longer was the sole multilateral negotiating forum for disarmament. Indeed, it was not negotiating anything and had not been for a very long time. He suggested they must do more, by looking at the entire United Nations disarmament machinery and deciding whether this machinery was part of the problem or victim of political paralysis. The Conference on Disarmament was fast approaching an historic tipping point. They would need all of their collective wisdom, and perhaps some luck, at the General Assembly in the fall when it would decide what to do with the Conference on Disarmament.
And that is the word from UNOG, the United Nations Office at Geneva, in the Heart of Europe. If you have constructive proposals for the newly elected president of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament, send them along to Mr. So Se Pyong. And if you see the rabbit, say Hi!

Liberty, as it is practiced in North Korea. This is a glimpse into the lives of favored North Korean students studying film and acting. They lead privileged lives learning how to act in State propaganda films. They are the ones who get food, along with the Army.

Mass-murderer, Zimbabwean Dictator Robert Mugabe, is making overtures toward Kim Jong Il, who has absolutely nothing whatsoever of value to give in return except nuclear and missile technology, and the left is outraged over animal welfare!???
We are doomed!
Kind of makes you feel like building an ark of your own.
