Susan Rice

Je doute que la gauche soit d’accord avec ce qui suit… Citation de Susan Rice, la candidate pressentie par Barack Obama pour assumer le rôle d'ambassadrice des États-Unis à l'ONU:

« If the United States fails to gain U.N. support, we should act without it. Impossible? No, the United States acted without U.N. blessing in 1999 in Kosovo to confront a lesser humanitarian crisis (perhaps 10,000 killed)…

Others will insist that, without the consent of the United Nations or a relevant regional body, we would be breaking international law. Perhaps, but the Security Council recently codified a new international norm prescribing 'the responsibility to protect.' It commits U.N. members to decisive action, including enforcement, when peaceful measures fail to halt genocide or crimes against humanity. »
