    This is a good action from the United Nations. I wish that there were less waste and more positive agreements from that nice, tall building on my town's East Side, but it serves a purpose by maintaining some communication when nations' interests are severely opposed.

    The resolution places binding obligations on the nation? Do you honestly believe they are referring to Syria?

    Agree@JI-F
    Communicating is what was lost in the fog of fruitless, costly and agenda driven militarism. About time sanity prevails.

    According to US sources" the disposal of Syrian CW would be much easier than previously thought". And" Syria has provided a surprisingly accurate inventory".
    Would a strike on Syria and its disastrous consequences was a better option, as our "closes ally" and their orgs in US wanted?

    Good job of making lemonade out of lemons by the Obama administration. The ball is now in Assad's court with the world looking in. There are no guarantees but so far so good.

    You liberals think Syria is going to stop using chemical weapons just because you wrote someting on a piece of paper? I'm sorry to ruin your day with some harsh reality but you might do better by CARPET BOMBING THEM AND KILLING ANYTHING THAT EVEN REMOTELY RESEMBLES A MUSLIM TERRORIST!

      U.N. resolution, Hamsta. Not U.S. And no, we can't just bomb a whole country just because you don't like their religion.

    Yet another "RESOLUTION" out of the UN. Whoop dee Doo. The question is, does this "resolution" come with teeth, or is this just more noise from the paper tiger ? It's easy to resolve to do things. Many people resolve to do things every new year, and each year those resolutions get thrown to the curb.
