What US did is unethical but a need also. Think for a moment, what happened to those Kashmiri Pandits that got displaced? Have they got their place back. Put this example with any Of the migrant example. UNHRC is nothing but a stage to voice their opinions much like what we used to do in school. US walking out of HRC is a decision that is also going to affect positively for us to. Did you forget the Kashmir report? The point over here is with migrants running away from the base country why is there no strict military action on those countries. All UN HRC does is to have vocal conversations between nations, has it ever able to implement anyone recommendation it decided? Secondly, this US government is being directly run by bureaucrats, and will provide more positive to US then what media is trying to show. Yes there are unspeakable actions which should be condemned like the militant children scenario, but this should be done with a solution rather than just ‘speaking’ about it. Basically every time US walks out, it brings us to a simple question, which side of evil we wanna stand ?

If you are really serious to have a peaceful ethical environment, the first thing should be abandoning of military forces or reduction in defence sector in nation’s budget whoever deemed to be a member of UN HRC. Also United Nations should be provided more Armed Forces so as to eradicate evil which made these migrants run away from their home country.
