A cease-fire resolution for Syria has failed to take hold as Syrian forces, backed by Russia, make gains in Eastern Ghouta. The question arises: What is the United Nations doing? French Ambassador Francois Delattre said the failure to stop the bloodshed in Syria could be "the graveyard of the United Nations," which was founded on the ashes of World War II.While the Security Council has failed the people of Syria, this does not mean the end of the global organization, said British Deputy Ambassador Jonathan Allen.Human Rights Watch U.N. director Louis Charbonneau said the council stands to lose the little credibility it has left on Syria if it fails to get the cease-fire resolution enforced.
