Response to Syria

Hard to generalise but there is seldom any lack of criticism of the US in the General Assembly or in organisations like UNESCO. For small nations the most important function of the UN is to provide collective security from aggression. A good example is the recovery of Kuwait from Iraqi aggression in 1991. Kuwait had been swallowed up and annexed by Saddam. Many countries have been undermined by terrorism and are pleased to see the US taking a lead against it.
