GW's a Uniter, Not a Divider

Yeah, as in "United Against Us." Sheesh.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Friends and adversaries of the United States voted overwhelmingly in the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday against the four-decade-old American economic, financial and commercial embargo against Cuba.

The vote, conducted for the 13th consecutive year, was a lopsided 179 to 4 with one abstention on the resolution opposing the embargo. The United States, Israel, Palau and the Marshall Islands voted "no" and Micronesia abstained.

Micronesia abstained? What's the strategy there? I guess they want to agree with the rest of the world, while at the same time they don't want to be put on the Pentagon's list of "The Top 10 Pacific Island Chains Best Suited for Nuclear Testing. (Or is that 'nuculer?')
