U.N. Security Council Passes Syria Resolution

tough resolution; unspecified "further action"; major diplomatic blow; passed under Chapter 7 of the U.N.

Somehow I get the feeling that Syria isn't exactly scared about the U.N.'s resolution. They're probably tossing back drinks and laughing. The U.N. doesn't have the balls to back up their resolutions.
