Rattling letter openers at UNSC

Posted by on October 31, 2005

One down and 16 to go I guess.

Today the UN Security Council unanimously passed a watered down, half-hearted, almost-threat to Syria which basically amounted to a school yard taunt, “Now you better play fair!”.

What else can we expect from these people? The US, Britain, and France(!) wrote the original resolution which included a clear direct threat of sanctions if Syria didn’t behave but, SHOCK, Russia and China wouldn’t support it so the tough language was removed.

The resolution falls under Article VII of the UN Charter so it is militarilly…uh…or something.
