    Because it has never happened before, people assume that the drop of a veto is as final as the fall of the guillotine, and cannot be countermanded. A number of knowledgeable persons I know say that it is possible to challenge a veto; but they don’t speculate on the chance of success since this tack has not been tried before. A veto needs to be reasonable and in compliance with related laws. If it fails that criteria, it could be disputed and referred for adjudication at the International Court by a majority of the General Assembly. I thought I would share this gem with all you folks. Given the increasing tension about reforming the Security Council, the Palestinians will have no trouble precipitating a most delicious crisis. Have a good time friends, and do enjoy the waning days of September.
