NY Times perfumes the 18th UN condemnation of Cuban Embargo

Does this seem like an appropriate headline to you? US EMBARGO ON CUBA FINDS SCANT SUPPORT AT U.N. –that’s how the NYT titled its article whose first sentence was accurate: “The General Assembly voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to condemn the American trade embargo against Cuba.” Then the NYT dismissed the non-binding resolution as “an annual ritual” instead of the 18TH YEAR IN A ROW the US finds itself in defiance of a unanimous count of the community of nations.
 
You say 187 vs 3 is not unanimous? The only nation-entities voting with the US were Israel and Palau, with the Marshall Island and Micronesia abstaining — basically all former or quasi US territories. American NYT readers are made to think their country stands as lone vanguard against the Cuban peril, instead of a gang leader bully breaking international law. And get a load of the Zionist paper’s other headline: From Iraq, Lessons for the Next War.
