Credit Where Due

I know that the standard liberal talking point is that Bush and the GOP hate the UN and would like nothing more than to see it fail.

That may or may not be the case, but in this situation I think it is safe to say that Bush is actually trying to accomplish something while the other members of the UN seem content to just be feckless, short-sighted jackasses
The United States has found no support in the U.N. Security Council for a resolution before the end of this month on a future U.N. force in Sudan's Darfur region, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said on Thursday.

The Bush administration has been pushing the 15-nation council to quickly adopt a resolution calling for an international peacekeeping force to help end the violence in Darfur, taking over from some 7,000 African Union troops already there.

But at a meeting on Thursday, all other council members argued a resolution should come only after African Union foreign ministers make a final decision on a handover, expected in early March, said diplomats present at that meeting.

Prior to an AU move, everyone but Washington "agreed the council shouldn't be seen to be prejudging that decision," said one council diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity because the meeting took place behind closed doors.
