Gem of the day

Richard Gowan delivers an honest account of a UN Security Council debate on the state of peacekeeping in India (via Global Dashboard):

"When multiple speakers are highlighting the  importance of 'implementing the recommendations of previous peacekeeping reviews', you know that 'innovative thinking' is probably in short supply."

And he doesn't stop there:

"Peacekeeping is an issue on which New Delhi can show global leadership, but holding debates in New York in which everyone says more or less exactly what they’ve always said isn’t the way to achieve that."
