bizarro existentialist paradise comes to the General Assembly
Syria just referred to "the Israeli beast" and called the Israelis the "sultans of darkness." The Egyptian Ambassador and the President of the General Assembly are yelling, literally yelling, at each other over procedure. The General Assembly, after two full days of debates on Gaza, has now descended into base insults. I am waiting for diplomats to start hurling cow pies at each other, because this would be just as unproductive, but would be a lot funnier. I don't think this is quite what Harry Truman had in mind.
