U.N. = Unbelievable

International Anti-Corruption Day on 9 December marks one year since the signing conference for the United Nations Convention against Corruption was held in Mérida, Mexico.

In the last year, over 110 countries have signed on to the Convention and nine have ratified it. Ratificiation by 30 Member States is necessary for the Convention to enter into force.

Ohhhh the irony...

Reread the last line. -- ratification is requried by 30 members states and only 9 have signed...

Thus...the reason why or two members of the Security Council were BOUGHT OFF by a murderously corrupt dictator in exchange for a veto?

If you ask me. Kofi better work on those remaining 21 ratifying nations so the United Nations Convention against Corruption doesn't become just a nother useless resolution from an already useless organization.
