« Israel Rejects UNSCR as Unsatisfactorily Weak; New Offensive is Underway | Main | Hezbollah Position Unclear; UNSCR Meaningless Unless Rocket Attacks End »



Is this Chapter 7 (enforceable by military means)? Or just Chapter 6 (only looks for negotiations)?

Vital Perspective

The characterizations of Chapter VII and Chapter VI are more nuanced than that, but OK for the sake of argument. This is a Chapter VI resolution.


Leaked Copy of the Security Council Resolution
Vital Perspective exclusive: We have obtained a copy of the draft Security Council resolution I am setting a time-line for 1701.

Can anyone tell me at what time on August 11 was the draft leaked?

We can look up what time we posted the document, but why the strange question?

Sorry, should have read your comment more carefully... a timeline I see...

Well I can tell you this, the post went 'live' at 16:24 in Washington DC. Now the UNSCR had to be typed and then checked for any errors and/or omissions from the text provided to us. That being said, if I had to give an estimate, my colleague and I likely received the document at about 16:00.

Hope that helps. Thanks for your readership and when you have the timeline together, please let us know. We'd love to take a look.

Praise for Vital Perspective

  • "If there were just a hint more thinking like this in Washington, prosecuting and decisively winning the War on Terror would not be the 'controversy' some choose to make it…at the cost of National Security"
