This makes too much sense to pass

There is movement to get the UN to formally condemn suicide bombing as a crime against humanity. My first reaction is, well, duh! Of course it is a crime against humanity. The whole point is to strap yourself with explosives and indiscriminately kill as many people, in a public place, as you can. All talk of asymmetrical warfare can be cast aside, because this is the perfect UN project. The "world community" can condemn attacks, after the fact, with the full weight of a UN resolution, without the possibility of doing anything about it. Just like genocide.

If only Israel started sending suicide bombers into the West Bank, then the resolution would pass in no time.

Now, now, let's not get hasty here. The General Assembly will entertain the notion of debating a non-binding measure to strike a committee charged with investigating the possibility of introducing a measure which may enable the Assembly to consider whether the situation is serious enough to allow more active measures in relation to the topic of concern. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

A classic: I wish I had written it. May we see more from you? Why not start with Kofi's reply to the topic of concern?
