FOX twofer segment: bash the UN and push for actions against Iran

Reported by Chrish - March 14, 2006

Eric Shawn was back on the scene today 3/14/06, presenting a piece on The Big Story about the "Iran issue" and having a few words with recess appointee John Bolton.

The UN Security Council met for the fourth time to discuss what to do about Iran. Russia and China are reluctant to do anything, and although Bolton claims he would like to keep the "Perm Five", as he called the permanent members of the Security Council (France, Great Britain, China, Russia, and US) unified, he supports France and GB's plan to circulate a proposal to the other members of the Security Council without the approval of China and Russia.

The meetings today were an attempt to come to a consensus of the permanent members to make a statement to Iran demanding that they cooperate with the IAEA, but in Shawn's words, "so far, Russia and China have not agreed to telling Iran to just merely even cooperate!."

Bolton told Shawn that even if Russia and China were not "on board" a draft statement could be presented to the thirteen other council members anyway. Asked by Shawn if that wouldn't indicate a split in the council. Bolton replied that they (GB, France, and the US/he) think it's important to move ahead, as it is a matter of great concern as the Iranians "continue to master the enrichment technology."

Shawn ends the segment with "If the Security Council is unable to resolve this issue, some say it's very credibility and that of the UN itself will be on the line."

Comment: And that's exactly what the neo-cons want, a hobbled and ultimately defunct United Nations. FOX continues to do its part to slowly drip, drip, drip the concept that the UN is a bad thing to its impressionable viewers.
