Oh the big bad scary UN. What an utter joke.
That is correct fush hawk but only if the 17 resolutions are spread out over 11 years. Kudos on recognizing the crucial benchmark that has been set in these situations!
Merry Christmas :)
Possibly you're correct they wished to avoid the sanctions, but I'm sure they expected them anyway and are prepared to weather the storm. They care not a bit for international scorn. In fact they revel in such sentiments. I don't think it's that important except as to how the timing affects the progress of events. They knew it was bound to happen and they tried to delay and delay but eventually even the UN is bound to get off the dime and act. Well okay...not really act so they signed the official wrist slap paperwork. Now it's up to either us or Israel to act.
That helmet, the symbol, and the color of it, tells one all they need to know about the U.N. and it's current make up.
Fantastic! This is exactly the kind of tough line we must take against crazed fanatics with nuclear ambitions because sanctions worked so well with Cuba, Iraq, ... oh, wait!
At the last moment, Russia succeeded in deleting Iran's Aerospace Industries Organization, which produces missiles, but left three of its subsidiaries on the list.
Russia was also successful in scrapping a mandatory travel ban. Instead, the resolution now calls on states to notify a Security Council sanctions committee if any of the individuals on the list are in their countries."
And these people are our "allies"
We're all in a lot of trouble here. I realize I'm not coming down off the mountain with the tablets here. Meanwhile, libs are more concerned with SUV exhaust, trans fat bans and banning smoking. Talk about fiddling while Rome burns...
The last time we got a sanction against an Axis member a couple of months later, we are bombing.
Nah, the party is at Kofi's paid pad; do a li'l dance, make a li'l love, get down tonite!!!!
Isreal will be doing it with some help from us. We will probably supply them with some nice bumker buster bombs and the sorts.
I heard the USS George Washington & Carrier group will be arriving in the Persian Gulf in the next couple days. Wonder if their going to be busy?
