I think the condemnation by the UN is valid. I think this condemnation by those nations that are not democracies or are oppressing its people (like in Cuba) are hypocritical. A condemnation can stand on its own if that which is being condemned merits it. It has value, but it would have more value if those doing the condemning were doing it for selfless reasons. I agree that differences of opinion are a good thing. Hypocrisy is not.
