What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

-- UNITED NATIONS -- An attempt by the United States and its European allies to condemn Syria in the United Nations Security Council was rebuffed on Wednesday.

Western nations failed to secure the simplest of Security Council measures: a press statement calling on Syria’s leaders to stop the violence against their own people.
Never mind a statement... looks like Bashar is getting champagne & flowers...
"The brutal crackdown by Syrian President Bashar Assad may finally be getting the attention of world leaders -- but apparently not enough to stop Syria from becoming the newest member of the U.N. Human Rights Council."
