UN to let the slaughter in Palestine continue

Hold your shock - the United States has vetoed yet another U.N. resolution condemning Israeli actions in Palestine (specifically Gaza in this instance). How far will the U.S. go to "protect" its clients in Israel? This particular resolution also "would have called on the Palestinian Authority to 'take immediate and sustained action to bring an end to violence, including the firing of rockets on Israeli territory.'" Even that wasn't good enough for the U.S., though.

Everyone's favorite villain John Bolton will soon be gone. Does anyone think that any other American representative to the U.N., even (or should I say especially) one appointed by President Hillary Clinton or President Al Gore, would have cast their vote differently?

As with Donald Rumsfeld, it can seem satisfying to rejoice when those who are the arrogant face of American policy are given the boot. But in both cases, the forces really determining the policy they were implementing are unchanged.
