America Used UN Veto to Protect Israeli War Crimes – 24 Times!
do two things:
First, realize and recognize that the resolution(s) passed, regardless of the US veto.
The resolutions that passed were little more than words from the debate club.
The resolutions vetoed called for real action.
look into the reasoning behind why the US veto'd.
Because Zionists rule America.
Excuse me, again, the US is but one vote.
As such, there are five permanent members.
Only one veto is required to stop the world from stopping Israel.
ioned above, despite US veto's, the majority of resolutions pass.
The ones that are passed are meaningless in practice, but the ones vetoed carried weight.
For you to sit here and insinuate that the US, making one vote, is holding up the UN on acting or from a solution, is again, ludicrous and humorous.
It is the stark reality, and I don't see how anyone, head in the sand or not, could deny that America alone with its UN veto power backed up with military might has allowed Israel to commit slow motion ethnic cleansing.
The Israelies are responsible for doing it, and America is responsible for enabling it.
The Brits share a fair amount of the blame themselves, but in the end the single thing that ties it all together is the Veto America employs in the UN.
Over and above actually using the veto power is exerted through the implication of veto, but considering your denialism of Veto Power maybe thats too much for you to take in right now.
