Meanwhile, in the UN

Mr. Reynolds posts this bit of interesting data from the Times.

"China and Russia last night thwarted a year-long diplomatic drive by Britain to impose United Nations sanctions on the perpetrators in of the violence in the Darfur province of Sudan. . . . The United States, which backed the British initiative, reacted angrily by threatening to call a public vote of the 15-nation Security Council that would force Russia and China into making a formal veto."

Genocide it seems, just isn't the sort of thing the UN (or to be more percise, masters of genocide in the 20th Century, China & Russia) wants to stop.
