A sample of United States votes against the vast majority of the General
Assembly (and most of the World):
-U.S. voted against the General Assembly's condemnation of Israel for
"killing and wounding defenseless Palestinians". Vote 130-2(US, Israel)
-U.S. voted against the calling for an end to hostilities when Israel
invaded Lebanon. Only Israel voted with the U.S. June 1982
-U.S. voted against resolution opposing weapons in outer space. 154-1 (US)
no abstainers December 1987
-U.S. voted against comprehensive test ban of nuclear weapons. 143-2 (US,
-U.S. voted against halt to all nuclear explosions. 137-3 (US, UK, France)
None of this was reported in the US media, and at the same time Reagan was
being extolled for being a "peacemaker" for disarmament resolutions. The
NYT, Washington Post and 3 major networks also overlooked General Assembly
resolution calling for the US to comply w/ World Court condemnation of US
was against Nicaragua.
