While Qaddafi was in charge, Libya proudly sat on the Human Rights Council, even holding the post of chairman at one point. But now that he's out of power, the UN doesn't see Libya as a friend any more. Awwwww. Poor UN.
Perfect self-explanatory sentence:
"Widespread and systematic attacks against the civilian population may amount to crimes against humanity," said Pillay, a former U.N. war crimes judge.
Yes, that pretty much defines the way Qaddafi ruled. You've been endorsing his rule enthusiastically for 20 years. So why is the same behavior
suddenly a cause to remove Libya from your council? Presumably because the UN knows that the successor regime will no longer be Marxist.
Tells us everything we need to know (well, not that we didn't already know it!) about Human Rights
and the UN.
It also teaches dictators an important lesson. Hold onto power as long as possible, because cowardly rich countries will kowtow to you while in power, then insult you and take your money after you leave office.
