According to BBC News (I know, I know) the United Nations Security Council has finally decided to get tough on terrorism. By unanimous decision, 15-0, they have declared that if you are a country that has not submitted a list of what you are doing to thwart terrorism they are going to, um, well, uh, "circulate a list" of names among themselves. So... you better just watch it Mister.
UN votes on tough terror measures
This latest resolution means the UN's al-Qaeda monitoring committee will be able to circulate a list of countries that do not submit a report by the end of March.
They will also publicise the reason behind the failure, whether it is a question of resources or political will.
The chairman of the monitoring committee and sponsor of the resolution, Ambassador Heraldo Munoz of Chile, said this would send a strong signal.
The new resolution calls on governments to look out for al-Qaeda or associated groups, trying to channel funds through different means, such as the informal banking system.
But it does not include any real new sanctions.
Man, them boys over at the UN are tough. They don't just make idle threats neither. When they say they're gonna do something they follow through.
