Hey, Let's Get With Iran On This One!
TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- A prominent Iranian lawmaker stressed that the Untied States is not a proper host for the United Nations Organization and called on all member states to demand a transfer of the UN headquarters from New York.Let's take him up on this and move the HQ to Tehran. Let the Mad Mullahs put up with drunk, scofflaw diplomats we've been putting up with for years. They'll be a surly bunch for being dumped into another repressive dump just like the repressive dumps most of them were so happy to get away from.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an open session of the Islamic Consultative Assembly here on Sunday, chairman of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaoddin Boroujerdi said, "As the articles of association of the UN state that the United Nations' permanent headquarters is located in New York, transfer of the headquarters requires rectification of the said articles of association."
Considering that the UN is in charge of grave affairs, any transfer of the headquarters should be carried out through a consensus of the member states and rectification of the articles of association, he said.
The legislator said that the plan for the transfer of the UN permanent headquarters from the US should be viewed as a political position taken (by Iran) against the measures adopted by the White House leaders.
Or maybe Brussels. Since the EU's done such a fine job of leading a unified Europe, why not let it just take on the world?
Pyongyang might be nice too. Only having electricity for 27 minutes a day would limit the damage the UN could do.
Hmm. Or maybe Antarctica.
