According to reports I’m seeing, the UN Security Council on unanimously passed a resolution expanding the mandate of international peacekeepers in Afghanistan outside the capital Kabul, yesterday.

The measure, which passed 15-0 with no abstentions, clears the way for the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) to work in other areas of the country, a request that has gained urgency amid an upsurge of violence. 

Gee, don’t tell the US leftists. They won’t like it much.
