Here's the text of the Security Council resolution passed today. Seems to me to mostly be a lot of talk for Iraqi sovereignty, condemnation of violence, and calls for people to chip in, all of which can most likely be ignored by everyone. And so far it pretty much is being ignored, as evidenced by the continued unwillingness of countries like France and Germany to commit troops. Like usual, who can blame them? The biggest show of support we've gotten is from Japan, who may pledge up to $5 billion over the course of a few years. That's no real big coup considering that Japan is already the #1 giver of foreign aid in the world.
