Interesting read from the Christian Science Monitor about the recent unanimity displayed by the United Nations Security Council. The council (including Algeria, France, China and Russia) issued a warning to Syria to cooperate in the probe of the murder of the former Lebanese Prime Minister. I didn’t realize that Jacques Chirac was friends with former PM Hariri — apparently one of the reasons the French are on board with us on this one.

Too bad Saddam Hussein didn’t kill any of Chirac’s friends. If so, maybe we wouldn’t be eating Freedom Fries right now.
