Saudi Arabia? China? Cuba? Lebanon? Iran?

Just speculating as to who might have voted to give Syria (currently mowing down the populace and shoving the dead into into newly-dug mass graves) a seat on the "august" UN "human rights" body, even though the Baathists had already bowed out of contention:
Even though Syria was not standing up for membership, five of the 192 countries in the General Assembly voted for it on Friday, assembly president Joseph Deiss said in announcing the results. Because the ballot was secret it was unclear who they were.
Secret, shmecret. Don't we have the right to know who thinks Assad's assholes should be arbiters of world "human rights"? So we can make fun of them (and the whole bollixy UNHRC), I mean.
