Guardian buries truth in NYC
FUKUS Watch w/e 16 June 2018
The 15-strong body [?] failed to agree [?] to a statement calling on forces led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to implement a ceasefire, with the US and UK both voicing opposition to the text introduced by Sweden.
FYI: "The UN database does not include information about votes on draft resolutions not adopted." So Guardian is in control of a story that barely broke out of the UN press room, Wed, 14 June, before FUCKUS subsequently quashed the mere idea of SC brokered cease fire.
The council [?!] instead called for restraint and "urged all sides to uphold their obligations under international humanitarian law" in fighting for the city currently held by rebel Houthi forces.
Guardian grapples with its "inclusive" responsibility to protect SC permanent members' authority to cultivate total war.
The security council's [?!] refusal to call for a ceasefire suggests the UK, US and France have accepted the Saudi and UAE claim that jeopardising aid flows is a justifiable risk if Houthi forces can be ousted from the city.
The Albright Effect
It ["THE 15-STRONG BODY"?] will fuel claims, led by the former Conservative international development secretary Andrew Mitchell, that Britain is not acting as an honest broker on Yemen at the UN, but siding with Saudi Arabia because of the UK's strong commercial links with the Gulf states.
ya think?
