A Resolution For Resolutions

Posted by Mark on October 16, 2006

In the wake of the UN Security Council’s 15-0 vote condemning North Korea’s nuclear tests, I have my own resolution. I submit a resolution that we STOP making resolutions.

They don’t work…never have, never will.

Following is the text of a U.N. Security Council resolution adopted by a 15-0 vote on Saturday:

THE SECURITY COUNCIL,

RECALLING its previous relevant resolutions, including resolution 825 (1993), resolution 1540 (2004) and, in particular, resolution 1695 (2006), as well as the statement of its President of 6 October 2006 (S/PRST/2006/41),

REAFFIRMING that proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, as well as their means of delivery, constitutes a threat to international peace and security,

Notice how this week, the UN is asking everyone to RECALL and REAFFIRM what’s already been written?…already been said? already been argued over, debated and agreed upon?

They’ve cited 3 PREVIOUS resolutions! It’s like a never ending Merry-Go-Round with the same wooden horses.
