Something to think about

The Diplomad is a blog written by US foreign service officers. One of then is in Indonesia. Go read, for some thoughts on the UN response, and don't forget the comments. The utter idiocy of some of the trolls astounds me.

Which makes me very glad the UK still has a largely a-political civil service (check in your political preferences at the door). Tho' Margaret Thatcher started a trend in parachuting political placemen into the service, a policy Tony Blair has enthusiastically endorsed.

No wonder the State Dept is considered a joke - good at issuing fiats and ultimata; not very good at diplomacy. Rated around top of the third division. Believe me - I worked with these suits (of all countries) for years. Others - French, Canadians, Israelis, Chinese, Japanese, Norwegians (superb). Most of the Middle east and Latin America (crap)
