Words, words, words...

This comment was posted by me on The Washington Note.

Words, words, words...

How will it affect the use of vetos, votes concerning Israel regardless, issues regarding the visa policies of persona non grata attending the UN forum, stands on illegal invasion and occupation, actions against states violating international treaties, etc.,

Only when the UN is moved out of the US (, veto powers are stripped to make it a "dermocratic" forum, member states who do not pay their dues on time are stripped of their voting rights, when the Security Council represents the ethnic mix of the earth, etc., will the UN become a legitimate body which can hold the "superpower(s)" accountable for their deeds.

Till then it will be words, words and more words.
