The Arab Spring continues to expose the hypocrisy of the world and in particular, the United Nations.
Hundreds dead in Syria as Assad's tanks fire directly at protesters yet we hear nothing of a Goldstone Commission clone (let alone of a flotilla to rescue the victims of his oppressive regime). Syria's bid for a seat might have stalled but only because of a possible deal with Kuwait to switch places on the waiting list.
Gaddafi's still alive and kicking and protesters are still being killed and beaten up across the Arab world and just quietly in the Palestinian territories.
But the "bad guy" remains the only true democracy in that part of the world.
