She abstained, the only abstention on the Security Council. It's almost inconceivable to imagine the uproar if Sarkozy, Tony Blair, or any other ally ever said this to the press.

Logic seems to have been lost. Those who shout the truth are branded as mad, and those who cry for more madness are considered sane.
"MUCH madness is divinest sense
To a discerning eye;
Much sense the starkest madness.

In this, as all, prevails.
Assent, and you are sane;
Demur,--you 're straightway dangerous,
And handled with a chain." --Emily Dickinson
