A Tale of Two Invasions

It seems how the UN reacts to one country invading another is really dependent on whether or not Jews are involved.

ABC Asia Pacific - News - UN chief calls for Middle East ceasefire
Mr Annan has told the UN Security Council that the hostilities must end immediately.
While bombing is going on, the invasion, though being readied, has not started yet.

Worldandnation: Somali sheik calls for holy war Now consider the Ethiopian invasion of Somalia. This invasion is underway, by all reports Ethiopian troops are well inside Somalia. What does Mr. Annan have to say?
U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan expressed concerns about the increased tensions near Baidoa and urged dialogue.
Seems to be a bit of a double standard, considering that as far as I know, forces inside Somalia were not shooting missiles at Ethiopia.

But then you knew that.
