Saturday, October 18, 2003 / World / US ::UN Iraq Resolution / World / US: "The less than fanatical follower of United Nations Security Council machinations would be forgiven for wondering what this week's unanimous vote on Iraq really meant - and most analysts at the UN are not too certain either.

No sooner had Russia, France, China, Germany and Pakistan raised their hands in support, eliciting whoops of diplomatic triumph by the coalition, than they said they did not like the text and that they would contribute no extra troops or money.

One United Nations diplomat called it a 'prime UN Security Council product: a text on which everyone agrees, but no one agrees what it means'."

That's why a bunch of poeple hate the U.N. Personally, it just seems like a statement that the status quo is perfectly all right with everyone.
