Iran, North Korea and Syria block UN arms trade treaty

UNITED NATIONS – Iran, North Korea and Syria blocked adoption of a U.N. treaty that for the first time would regulate the multibillion-dollar international arms trade. An agreement required agreement by all 193 U.N. member states. But other countries refused to let the treaty die.

In an unexpected twist, Mexico proposed that the conference go ahead and adopt the treaty Thursday without the support of the three countries, saying there was no definition of "consensus." Several countries supported the idea, but the Russian delegation objected and called the proposal "a manipulation of consensus."

Kenya said "the will of the overwhelming majority is clear" and that a letter will be sent to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with a draft resolution asking the U.N. chief to bring the treaty before the General Assembly for adoption as soon as possible.

Can you see Rothschild directing his first class of minions to inform the second class to "do this" to have "that affect" in that area of the world? Rothschild:

OK, Horseman No. 118 (besides, why only 4?), I mean President Blah Blah of country X, visit these countries, then visit "those" countries to set up an image projected worldwide that "those" countries look as if they care about themselves at expense of the rest of the world. Once our news outlets in all parts of the world, except outlets in "those" countries because we don't have outlets in them, reaches enough people worldwide (thanks, Internet!), you notify whoever you have to to dispatch an agent to cause a disaster to bring in the soldiers of county Y who have been waiting in the countries bordering "those" countries to gain control of "those" countries, er, I mean avert more trouble in those countries.

The news might not be script, but the announcements and events are scripted. This news is "news."
