Yes, you read that headline right. In the dystopian world of the United Nations, Syria will chair the UN conference on global chemical and nuclear disarmament.

Syria has consistently used chemical weapons on its people, including the latest instance earlier this month on April 7, 2018, in which 42 people, including many children, were killed in a gas attack in Douma. The U.S. retaliated for that attack in a missile strike April 14.

“Having the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad preside over global chemical and nuclear weapons disarmament will be like putting a serial rapist in charge of a women’s shelter,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, in a statement.

The charade will continue for nearly a month, from May 28 until June 24, in Geneva.
