No, no, no. The United States are the centre of the universe. Everyone loves them.

Many UN request not really strongly enforceable, however many countries put pressure to occupier from diplomatic to cutting trade.

All of the mounting pressure will have an impact. The USA will fast find itself isolated on the global stage, but hey, maybe thats what they want. It certainly seem like it.

In the meantime the rest of the world will form their own trading relations and alliances, and move away from dollar hegemony.

Moreso than the request to withdraw troops, the request to allow entry to investigative bodies isnt going to go down well with Israel.

As much as I agree with you. The parents are not the only ones to blame. The government and law enforcement have been woefully negligent in enforcing the law. Proper law enforcement would eventually change people's perceptions as it has with driver seat belts. And not properly securing children in a vehicle is only one of many laws that are not enforced.

A lack of basic common sense is pure negligence if it leads to the death of a child. I agree that law enforcement leaves a lot to be desired, but parents have a duty to make sure that their children are safe and secure when the vehicle is in motion.

As obsessed as people over here seem to be with all things "safety", I'm often surprised how that doesn't seem to apply to passengers in a moving vehicle.

People here treat their minivans like their living room; TV on, kids unstrapped and climbing over and between the chairs and the car is in motion. I see this kind of thing every week. If something happens it is 100% due to parental negligence.

The logical thinking here doesn't surprise me at all. In or out of a "CHILD SEAT" or buckled in or not!

Have a child, put them in a child seat, then make a response.

Full stop. If the child was actually in a child seat(buckled in), then it's physically impossible for this tragic situation to have happened

Thank you

@Chabbawanga I'm sorry, but did you really read the article or did you assume? You missed one important fact in the this story the "Police said the girl was in a child seat". Yet another example of an abysmal comment. I

Why was a two year old unbelted whilst the parent wasnt next to them? Do you understand the logistics of this situation?

Police said the girl was in a child seat.

There is no way a child who is belted into their seat could extend their neck in this way, not unless they are a giraffe.

Im sorry. This is yet another example of abysmal parenting. Why was the kid unbelted whilst the parent wasnt right next to them. Automatic windows take time to go up, why didnt the parent notice? Next level ignorance.

Posted in: U.N. halts all food distribution in Rafah after running out of supplies in southern Gaza city See in context

Time is ultimately on their side.

that makes no sense. The longer it takes, the more innocents die, the worse israel looks. The higher the likelihood that the hostages die. The higher the chances that Hamas can regroup and counter IDF im Rafah. The more money they leech from the US taxpayer, and the less popular their cause becomes. Remember Ukraine...?

Time is very much not on Israels side.

Where was the ICC when the US and it's allies invaded Iraq and secretly overthrew Libya and several other countries?

There was a case brought to the ICC against the UK. IMO Tony Blair should have been tried as a war criminal.

I wonder if this signals a shift in the power dynamic in Iran. Raisi was being groomed for the position of supreme leader, and with Khamenei in his mid 80s things could get interesting.

Israel asks why armed men at U.N. site

Security forces to protect the distribution of aid, these types of armed guard have always been commonplace, Israel is just looking for any excuse to justify its targetting of UN workers. To be honest props to Israel for not nuking these security forces straight away, usually we would be discussing this post-mortem.
