It's not clear what the UN Security Council has succeeded in preventing.
What should be done depends on by whom. For the United States government the time has come to learn how to function without power. Our military is tied up in Iraq and aphganistan and our economy is tied up in a petroleum shortage. It's time to get smart about soft power.
