China and Russia veto Zimbabwe sanctions.

There's been a complete failure by the global community to act on this horrible situation. It really pisses me off.

It's pretty despicable, yeah - not to mention two-faced on the part of Russia. Just last week they were urging intervention in Zimbabwe, now this.

They didn't veto, they voted against, the resolution would have passed if China and Russia hadn't used the Veto power only they, the U.S., U.K and France have.

The entire concept of a veto power is just ridiculous too, they already have permanent seats on the security council, it just works to prevents any real action.
