Watch it happen
Iran is seeking the Asian seat for the United Nations Security Council: http://www.nationalpost.com/opinion/story.html?id=832934, a move which needless to say hasn't made Israel too happy: http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5jfsdwmGwrZ17h7pkJO7fLl1PT58A. Don't be shocked at all that if the thrice-sanctioned Iranians get their wish. I fully expect Russia and China to support the move, and Lord knows, the bizarro world that is the U.N. General Assembly will certainly be behind the Iranians. And this being the U.N., where the Human Rights Commission can contain members such as Sudan, Libya, Cuba and China, does anyone want to bet against this taking place?
