RUSSIA: DEFENDER OF INTERNATIONAL STABILITY

From Yahoo: Russia ready to veto U.S.-British resolution on Iraq to protect `international stability’.
This bugs me. For ages the biggest complaint from the left and the international community regarding American foreign policy has been that the US cares only for stability and ignores the moral issues; that we prop up petty dictators just to keep things from changing. Now all of a sudden we’re willing to sacrifice stability to do the right thing and we’re still being seen as the bad guy.
Damned if we do, damned if we don’t.
