UN Security Council Backs Tribunal for Lebanon

Finally the UN gets to focus on real war criminals instead of its scapegoating Israel. From UN Security Council Backs Tribunal for Lebanon:

The UN Security Council voted Wednesday to create an international criminal tribunal to prosecute the masterminds of the February 2005 bombing that killed former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri and 22 others. The resolution, which will take effect June 10, was approved 10 to 0. China, Indonesia, Qatar, Russia and South Africa abstained. The court will also have jurisdiction over at least 14 other political attacks against anti-Syrian journalists, scholars and politicians since October 2004.
