US gets thrown off a second UN committee

The US has been thrown off the UN International Narcotics Control Board. This follows being thrown off the UN Human Rights Board a week ago. Seems fair to me. After all, the US is years overdue with its UN membership fees, has a terrible human rights record compared to almost every other western country, and its drug laws are racist and cruel. Not to mention that the US has treated the UN with contempt for years by ignoring its resolutions and refusing to sign half a dozen world treaties, including treaties on getting rid of land mines, reducing CO2 emissions and ending slavery.
