Odd prose from the Bangkok Post
Posted May 12, 2010on:
Thailand does not have the power to influence every decision and every case brought before the UN human rights body after tomorrow.
One can hope that the new members will try to take advantage of quiet diplomacy.
The world body and its successive leaders have the power to use the bully pulpit and inform world opinion.
UN members also voted in countries that were far from being considered democratic exemplars like Pakistan, Egypt, China, and Cuba.
We will be staring at the next problem of the drought, which looks set to come after the oppressive hear.
