U.N. Votes To Outlaw Nuclear Terrorism (washingtonpost.com)

A moment of silence please; the United Nations expands international law for the safety or people and the environment throughout our wonderful planet. Today, the General Assembly "Votes To Outlaw Nuclear Terrorism".
The Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism is the first anti-terrorism treaty to be adopted since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. It is the 13th anti-terrorism treaty and builds on recent efforts by the U.N. Security Council to compel states to strengthen their laws and policies to combat terrorist groups.

The treaty goes into effect if it is ratified by 22 member states. I'm so elated that the it only took the UN bureaucracy 42 months to look out the windows of their Manhattan offices. Heck, for a few months they were inhailing the evidence.
