...then she needs to be gone. Or we need to leave the UN. Both, preferably, and as soon as possible.
This is what you get when you put liberals in charge of foreign policy - assertions that symbolic gestures are equivalent to concrete actions, and should thus be equally praised:
Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, tweeted on Thursday: “Nations of the world just stood together in silence for the victims of Syria.” I am not sure which is worse — that this is the U.N. response to mass murder, or that Rice thought this reflected well on her efforts there.
Because doing something - anything - to actually change the reality on the ground in Syria would be...messy. And our well-coiffed UN representatives are not about to get their hands dirty, no matter how many women and children are mercilessly slaughtered by Bashir al-Assad.
This is what happens when you speak loudly and carry a limp dick:
U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said the monitors came under small-arms fire Thursday as they tried to reach the site of the reported new massacre in Qubair, a small village in Hama province. Speaking at a U.N. General Assembly session, Ban said the incident occurred after the U.N. monitors were blocked from entering Qubair to investigate the alleged killings.
Don't worry, Sue. Your intentions are good, and that's all that matters. Just keep standing there together silently, I'm sure it will all work out for the best...
