Iran urges UN to condemn U.S. drone aggression - Xinhua
Iran has urged the United Nations to condemn the violation of its air space by a U.S. drone and sought “clear and effective measures” to end such “dangerous and unlawful acts” against the country.
Mohammad Khazaee, Iran’s permanent representative to the UN, made the appeal in his letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. It was dated Dec. 8 and a copy was obtained by Xinhua on Thursday night.
The UN has become analogous to those inflatable hammers you see at children’s parties - you know, those rubber toys that emit a honking sound when you whack someone on the head with it. It has the form of something useful and perhaps even threatening, but in the end it’s something of a joke that is hard to take too seriously. Run too fast? “Boink” goes the hammer. Kill civilians? “Boink” goes the UN. Stick out your tongue? “Boink” goes the hammer. Torture and kill unarmed protesters? “Boink” goes the UN.
