Ahhhh, I love our current diplomats.

Well the Iranian president addressed the UN General Assembly again. And once again, Canadian diplomats stood up and walked out in protest.

Canada boycotts Iranian leader's speech at UN:

By Lee-Anne Goodman, The Canadian Press

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Canadian diplomats at the United Nations, including Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon, boycotted a speech Tuesday by the president of Iran.

In recent years Canadian officials, along with those from other Western nations, have made a show of walking out on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad whenever he addresses the UN General Assembly.

It's meant as a form of protest against Iran's human rights record and controversial nuclear program.[SNIP]

Why this maniac is given such a bully pulpit consistently, I don't understand. He's verbally assaulted Israel, his regime supports terrorists of all stripes. In fact there could be grounds for calling the government of Iran a terrorist organization.

It's days like this that I wonder why we are even a part of the United Nations.
