Black hats, white hats and no hats at all

From the UN press site:

"The 18 newly elected members of the Human Rights Council would need to prove themselves by implementing the international human rights agenda at home and abroad, Craig Mokhiber, Deputy Director of the New York Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), said during a Headquarters news conference this afternoon...“We would like to get away from the idea that there are good guys and bad guys. Today, there were 18 human rights violators elected to the Human Rights Council”, he said, stressing that all 192 United Nations Member States had serious human rights problems".

Over to you, readers, for any attempts to sort sheep from goats:

"The new Council members, elected by secret ballot, include: five African countries (Cameroon, Djibouti, Mauritius, Nigeria and Senegal); four (sic) Asian States (Bangladesh, China, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan and Saudi Arabia); two Eastern European countries (Hungary and Russian Federation); three Latin American and Caribbean countries (Cuba, Mexico and Uruguay); and three Western European and Other States (Belgium, Norway and the United States) for three-year terms.

What, no DPRK?

A tad harsh on our Norwegian cousins, surely...?

Lumping the government of Norway in with foul rogues like China and Saudi Arabia does take some moral blindness, doesn't it?

Oh hell, I got this wrong. I thought it was a Country count of Most Evil Countries Visited: sadly not.

Cameroon, Nigeria and Senegal, China,Russian Federation, Belgium, ... BELGIUM? WTF? (they colonise by buying up the water supply and turning it into beer: what's to complain about?).

I've been to all of them(cf below) and then some(and I have to state I look forward to visiting many, many more).

These people do not have a clue about the marketing potential.
However, I have never been to DePRicK state.

Am I doing something wrong?

Ony askin.

Must be a full passport you sport, STB.

If you make it to Pyongyang, a guess post is yours for the asking.
