It may sound funny, but firebrand UN watchdog, US Ambassador John Bolton has finally cast a veto on a UN Security Council resolution after a year at the UN! It deals with international condemnation of the Israeli incursion in to Gaza to fetch their kidnapped soldier. GB abstained with three other nations, but it was 10-1 otherwise. Bolton said the language was outmoded and untimely, simply asking (kindly of course, we wouldn’t want to offend anyone) the Palestinians to let the guy go and for Israel to leave Gaza.
