U.N. Flies Flags at Half Mast for Kim-Jong-Il

Kind of a confusing message...

UNITED NATIONS - The flag of the United Nations flew at half-mast Wednesday at the world's body headquarters in New York and its Geneva offices to mark the funeral for late North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il.

Choi Soung-ah, a spokeswoman for UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon, said it was customary practice for the UN flag to be lowered to half-mast upon the deaths of leaders of UN member states.

The non-governmental organization UN Watch said while protocol had to be followed, "the world body must not forget that its founding purpose is to defend basic human rights."

"Sadly, that message is at serious risk of being blurred today," UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer said.

"Today should be a time for the UN to show solidarity with the victims - the millions of North Koreans brutalized by Kim's merciless policies of starvation and oppression - and not with the perpetrators."

Tens of thousands of weeping North Koreans bade farewell Wednesday to longtime leader Kim as his young son and successor walked beside his father's coffin through a snowbound Pyongyang.

Kim Jong-Un was at the forefront of the three-hour procession, in what analysts said was an attempt to bolster the image of the untested new leader of the impoverished but nuclear-armed nation.

Shameful.

The UN should have taken a collective symbolic (or actual) dump on the corpse.

A piece of crap for a piece of crap.

The UN allowed the likes of Gadaffi and Mugabe to address it.

Is there any wonder why they're a joke?
