US: Security Council must tell Russia to stop nuke threats

Source: AP

By MATTHEW LEE and JENNIFER PELTZ

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken called on every U.N. Security Council member to “send a clear message” to Russia that it must stop its nuclear threats in the war in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier this week that his nuclear-armed country “certainly use all means available to us” if its territory is threatened and to defend the country and its people.

Blinken used a council session Thursday to criticize Russia’s invasion and press other countries to join in their forceful condemnations of the conflict.

“Every council member should send a clear message that these reckless nuclear threats must stop immediately,” he said.

2. Since they are a permanent member of the SC, if they brought it up for a vote, they would simply

veto it

Still it would be a good thing to do, however, it shouldn't be surprising if they throw our invasion of Iraq, based on a lie back at us

5. And All Of Our Vetoes Of Any Resolution Re: Israel

Our unconditional support for Israel against the Palestinians has bitten us in the ass in the ME time and time again, and we can't learn. It could come back to haunt us here.

4. A clear message would be for all of the countries to recall all diplomatic personal from Russia and

expel all the Russian diplomatic personal including those in the US.
Though of course I would allow the Russian ambassador to the UN to remain but with a minimal staff.

6. Isn't this just Kabuki when Russia has veto power on the Security Council?

China, too, for the matter.
