SOUTH AFRICA'S HYPOCRISY ON HUMAN RIGHTS: No one will be to surprised to find out that China and Russia blocked a Security Council resolution criticizing Burma for its horrendous record on human rights.

What I don't understand is how South Africa dared to vote against the resolution, supposedly:
On the grounds that the Security Council has no mandate to scold or sanction Burma, also known as Myanmar, for abuses on its own soil.
Democracy only exists in South Africa because the entire world dared to challenge the apartheid regime for "abuses on its own soil."

On a related note, China, for reasons that one cannot fully understand, is suddenly being less obsructive when it comes to human rights in Darfur.

Look at Zimbabwe, you will then see why South Africa opposed the UNSC resolution. The South African government has done all within its power to prevent action against Zimbabwe so there is some logic to them opposing this resolution.
