UN Reform Proposal to be Annouced ...
Sorry, but I cannot get much excited or hopeful about this reform package -- it's just the next step for same ol', same ol'. The proposals, such as the "zero tolerance" for
"Embrac[ing] the "responsibility to protect" as a basis for intervention in cases of genocide and crimes against humanity when a government cannot or will not protect its citizens", like other wording in Annan's Milquetoast-esque checklist of reforms is not one of a Annan as a strong leader for reform; its one of a 'get along to go along' leader who is satisfied with appearances being accomplished while substance sits idly by.
Finally note, this is not Annan's proposal. It is substantially a panel report for which he is just the delivery boy. If Annan can't act as a bulldog for reform, what good is he?
