US returns to UN Human Rights Council

The United States intends to return to the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) after a nearly three-year hiatus. According to the Associated Press (AP), the Joe Biden administration is preparing to renew relations with the HRC.


According to the agency, in the next day, the head of the State Department, Anthony Blinken, while in Geneva, will announce the return of the United States to the UN Human Rights Council as observers in order to achieve the status of a "full member" of the organization in the future. Their decision in Washington, according to sources in the White House, was explained by the fact that the HRC is an "important forum" for the fight against tyranny and injustice around the world.

At the same time, the United States believes that the HRC should be reformed, and it is best to do this by "interacting with it."

It is possible that this decision will be criticized by American conservatives, as well as politicians who support Israel. Many congressmen may oppose the return to the HRC.

Recall that the United States withdrew from the UN HRC in 2018 under President Donald Trump, stating the organization's prejudice towards the United States and Israel, which is the closest ally of Americans in the Middle East. The decision came after several HRC resolutions condemning Israel's actions to suppress Palestinian protests.

          Perhaps the United States is concerned about the massacre of the unfortunate journalist Khashogi, who was cynically dismembered by the Saudis in Istanbul?

          The US military-globalist strategic plans to deploy TMV tactically require the US to return to the UN Human Rights Council to protect their American and other Western agents of influence in the matter of intra-political and economic destabilization of a sovereign country, which is targeted as a victim of American aggression.

        In principle, Trump's position is more consistent than the current US Democrats - why feed (pay dues) the next idlers, who, moreover, do not even bring you any moral benefit.
        It seems that the Democrats are now simply in revenge on Trump returning to where he brought the United States from and signing what Trump considered useless for the United States.

    So that's where the dog is buried. The HRC, which is already liberalized to nowhere and is partially saturated with Russophobia, wants to be made completely pocketable. How much further?

    After the United States disgraced itself with its elections, they should not even be allowed close to the UN building. And move the UN from Newerk to Switzerland.
    This issue was raised when our delegation was not given a visa, but
    and came to naught. Besides, BRICS and "20" seem to be completely "blown away".
    And if the United States openly calls Russia and China its adversary,
    it is necessary for these "opponents" to become active against the United States - together.

    If we have managers of tanks and state corporations with 51% of the shares owned by the Russian Federation, give their mistresses dachas for a yard of rubles, or yachts for $ 5, then it is possible to scrape together at the UN, and carry out what resolutions are needed - at least on the recognition of the Indian genocide ...
