The UN Human Rights Council is set to adopt a major report hailing Libya's human rights record -- despite moving to suspend the Arab country's council membership amid an international outcry over attacks on civilians.

The report shows countries applauding and commending Libya as they note "with appreciation the country's commitment to upholding human rights on the ground."

When it comes to things like the UN, and Nobel, and etc ... How can they be taken seriously when they give awards to the very biggest offenders in any given category?

Absolutely disgusting.

The thing about the UN, IMF and other organisations is that, they are meant to do the complete opposite of what they promote. IMF makes countries poorer and the UN, well what good have they done and how do sanctions work? Its pointless and China opposes sanctions and it just makes a country more determined and more self sufficient(Iran). The whole world needs a "reboot," good job you get floods approx every 5000 years, the whole world is messed up.

Qaddafi: "Did we win the human rights record recognition?"

General: "Yes, Sir..."

Qaddafi: "Phew, I was worried about what the rest of world thought of us, now pass the ammo."
