The French Violate UN Resolution 1970

Email Print

The French are dropping arms by air to the rebels. UN Resolution 1970 imposes an arms embargo on Libya. I am reminded of fascist Italy’s attack on Ethiopia in 1935. Both were League of Nations members. I guess the rule of international law, such as it is, is something like “Open covenants openly arrived at and openly disregarded.” The larger powers are slowly but surely undermining the UN. (This is an observation on the politics, not an endorsement of the UN.)
