Lifting the Sanctions II

Russia opposes lifting United Nations sanctions on Iraq because inspectors have not verified that Iraq has disarmed.

Really. It's true.

The big winner in all of the France-German-Russian silliness may be the family of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. The United Nations headquarters in New York is situated on 18-acres (formerly occupied by slaughterhouses) which were donated by Mr. Rockefeller - but whose donation is said to include a provision that the land reverts to the Rockefellers in the event the United Nations is disbanded.
