The blog is mostly to criticize, but for a moment let’s offer some praise. The UN Security Council has voted to authorize a multinational military mission to try to bring the Somalia piracy situation under control. And it seems the mission is going to be led by China. And it seems that rather than freaking out, the US Navy is happy to see the spirit of international cooperation at work. Good job all around! This is international relations and international security at its best.
Now if only we hadn’t screwed Somalia up in the first place….
