John Bolton paying dividends.

The UN Security Council passed a 'statement' condemning Hezbollah for a cross-border attack on Israel.

I love the pull quote from the article.
When asked what changed from Monday to Wednesday, one diplomatic official replied: "John Bolton," a reference to the US ambassador to the UN. Bolton lobbied vigorously for the passage of the statement.

Let's not bake the UN a pie just yet, it is still only a statement. They seem to be very big on those. The UN must have a lot of official looking stationary to issue 'statements' on.

Too bad the paper isn't backed up by anything, but its a start.
