The United Nations Security Council, at a historic summit meeting chaired by U.S. President Barack Obama, unanimously approved a U.S.-drafted resolution on Thursday calling on nuclear weapons states to scrap their deadly arsenals. Seems other folk share the same sentiments as Global Zero.
This and an end to Israel’s illegal settlements and the establishment of a Palestinian state. Knowing President Obama has that precious power of veto he could withdraw, I wonder just how “dramatic” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech at the United Nations’ General Assembly on Thursday will be now? After all they were two of the mainstays of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech. No wonder some folk walked out. I can only guess they didn’t want to be seen on camera, sitting there, with their hands over their ears.
Now Obama, the UNSC and the US, after having not taken any action against Israel for 61 years, will no doubt be slandered and slurred along with Ahmadinejad. One can only hope the little heifer won’t break too much china if it has to be put, kicking and screaming, back in it’s place and dragged to the negotiation table.
