We complain about the ineffective UN and then...

BushFor the 16th year in a row, a UN vote denounces Cuban trade embargo. The vote denouncing the U.S. trade embargo was supported by 184 nations. Cuba's representative at the vote said,

Anyone can understand the level of socio-economic development that Cuba would have attained had it not been subjected to this unrelenting and obsessive economic war.
The Bush administration immediately responded with, "Nah-nah nah-nah Boo-Boo", and then dropped a bomb on an Afghan family. Then Bush got Congress to give him a bunch of additional money for war while simultaneously turning down funding for poor children's health care. But remember, Marxism is a threat to our civilized society. And that's the news!

Update: The US, Israel, Palau, and the Marshall Islands voted against repealing the embargo, while Micronesia abstained. That's it. Those are the nations on our side. WTF?!? The WORLD thinks this is stupid and yet we persist.
