The Null Device
US voted off UN drug control committee
. The vote (by secret ballot,
though suspected to have been influenced by European and South American
delegates concerned with US drug policy) comes shortly after the World's
Leading Nation lost its seat on the UN Human Rights Commission, not to
mention its unilateral tearing up of the Kyoto treaty and the
Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty.
The question is: is this more likely to marginalise the US as a cowboy state,
or to lead to the wane of the UN as a body of real influence? (Didn't the
League of Nations die of irrelevance after world powers started ignoring it?)
