UN general criticizes focus of world leaders on talk, not action
The head of the United Nations monitoring team in Syria has directly taken on the inaction of the world by criticizing leaders for spending more time talking and too little acting.
According to the Irish Times, Norwegian General Robert Mood said the “urgency of stopping the violence” should be paramount and that there is “too much talk in nice hotels, in nice meetings and too little action to move forward and stop the violence.”
The divides and disagreements between the opposition forces merely emboldens leaders to forgo action for more talk.
