    "dismantling of U.N. seals"

    I have two problems with this.

    1. Now the U.N. is running around claiming the seals belong to them? So, every seal in every part of the world...antartica, Alaska, etc...all belong to the U.N.?

    2. Is this political correctness run amok? Why don't they just call it what it is? Bashing them with baseball bats is what they do. They can't make it sound better by saying..."we dismantled the seal."

    Geez...

    The EU trio threatened to end the negotiations.
    They should have done that on the 3rd of July. Its getting
    a bit late.

    A bunkerbuster or two would take care of those seals admirably.
