Getting by with a little help from his friends: UN Security Council can't agree on condemning Syria

Bashar al-Assad gets by with a little help from his friends. Thanks to the specter of Russian and Chinese vetoes, the UN Security Council failed to agree on Wednesday to condemn Syria's murderous crackdown on its popular uprising. Lebanon was also poised to vote against the condemnation.
The UN Security Council failed to reach an agreement on Wednesday over a statement that would condemn the violence by security forces against demonstrators in Syria.

Diplomats told the Reuters news agency that during the discussions on the subject, the representatives of Lebanon, Russia and China said that they would oppose a decision to denounce the Syrian government’s actions.
The UN has long since outlived its usefulness. It's time for it to go.

Ah, but is Assad building apartments for Jews in Jerusalem? See? No problem.
