Biz As Usual At The UN
We know from all Ban-ki Moon's verbal pitter-patter that Sudan is supposedly one of his big priorities. So what's Ban-ki Moon going to do about Al-Bashir's imminent rise to regional power?
From today's UN daily press briefing:
Question: Secondly, Sudan is a candidate for the Presidency of the AU, and some are suggesting that that should be opposed with the conflict going on. Is that something that the Secretary-General would take a position on?That's it? Not, "The General Secretary will use all the power at his disposal to see that the members of the African Union understand that if they vote for Al-Bashir their happy days of UN cashcow suckling will be behind them."
Spokesperson: No. That is something the AU members will take a decision on.
Yeah, yeah, he's a diplomat so cashcow suckling might be a tad over the top -- but could we at least get a hint that Al-Bashir gets under Ban-ki's skin?
From the UN?
