U.N. Security Council Review

Today's session of the U.N. Security Council was mostly calls for cessation of hostilities.

Three cheers for the Panamanian member, who noted that the two sides had very different stories about what was actually happening.  Until some of that is resolved, it is hard, if not impossible, to know who to support.  Strange, though, it sounded like he was speaking Castillian.

The U.S. member didn't make any useful contribution.

There was an exchange!  The Georgian and Russian members were responding to each other.  I was more impressed by the Georgian, then again, he was speaking in English, and who knows what subtle verbal cues I missed from the Russian.
