True enough. Finland often tells the UN to go fuck itself.

Take the Israeli settlements issue for example, sure the US may have abstained from voting and basically told Israel to go fuck themselves but Trump and his future administration have promised to back Israel.

"Oh, you're violating human rights? I'll condemn you in a strongly worded resolution!"

And...

Quote:Barack Obama appears set for a final showdown with Benjamin Netanyahu after Israel said it would ignore a UN Security Council resolution and push ahead with the building of more Jewish settlements in Palestinian areas.

Last week, in a rare condemnation of Israel, the UN said it settlements had “no legal validity”. The criticism went ahead after the US decided to abstain, rather than use its vote to veto the measure.

Mr Netanyahu, who has long had a difficult personal relationship with Mr Obama, immediately announced that Israel would not “turn the other cheek”.
