The United Nations Security Council on Tuesday passed a resolution, drafted largely by the gulf countries leading the war on Yemen, imposing an arms embargo on Houthis but not the Saudi Arabia-led military coalition pummeling and blockading the impoverished country.
Once again the Security Council fails peace. Hugely disappointed in Russia for abstaining. This is the same as when they abstained in the Libya vote which resulted in the destruction of the country and it becoming a failed state from the prosperous nation it once was.
Besides, imposing a weapons embargo on the Houthi while continuing to supply weapons to Saudi Arabia is just setting the stage for a mass slaughter.
The U N Security Council may as well be named the American Security Council because the U S dictates policy and is masterful at arm-twisting and coercion of other members. As the U S goes so goes the council with their opinions almost strictly confined to economic/financial concerns. Sad, very sad.
