Groveling at the UN

In an article in yesterday's National Review about Iran, Anne Bayefsky gives a great three-sentence summary of UN Security Council Resolution 1701.
August 11, 2006: The Security Council adopted a resolution dashing Israel’s hope of retrieving its soldiers and removing the Hezbollah-Iranian threat to its civilian population. The resolution equated a call to release the Israeli soldiers with the release of criminals in Israeli jails and introduced a bargaining chip in the form of a Lebanese land grab (based on a claim which the U.N. itself had decided was bogus years earlier) — thereby guaranteeing the soldiers’ continued captivity. The resolution to end an Iranian-instigated and Iranian-fueled war made no mention Iran.
