UNITED NATIONS SAYS COOL IT

Posted by Andrew Roman on January 9, 2009

UN Security Council

This may be a knee-jerk reaction on my part – and I’m willing to concede the point – but in my defense, I have a long track record from which I can accurately draw this specific conclusion.  I call it the “American Rule of Thumb.” In short, whatever world opinion is, go with the opposite.

Simple.

Whatever the consensus from the rest of the world may be on any subject of relevance, go in the other direction.

The United Nations Security Council has called for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza – and, of course, because this is coming from the ever-reliable, always morally clear institution that sits off the East River in Manhattan, my initial instinct is that it must be the wrong thing to do.

Not particularly analytical of me, I know.

The vote was 14-0, with the United States abstaining.

From Fox News:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the U.S. agrees with the principles of the cease-fire resolution but wants to see the outcome of an Egyptian effort to bring the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table.

The cease-fire resolution spearheaded by Egypt and France must be “not just applauded, but supported,” Rice said.

Despite the breakthrough in the United Nations, the two-week-old war in the Gaza Strip raged on, and early Friday, an Israeli airstrike flattened a five-story building in northern Gaza, one of more than 30 targets struck before dawn by Israeli warplanes.

I am convinced that if terrorists took over the United Nations building, the multicultural occupants (those still in possession of their jugular veins) would spend the next hours debating on which shade of white the surrender flag ought to be – that is, after laying blame at the tootsies of the United States and Israel for pissing off the “minding their own business” terrorists.
