Strange: UN votes to condemn itself

The General Assembly is condemning the Security Council. Can an organization get anymore dysfunctional?

Via BBC:
The UN General Assembly has voted by a big majority to condemn its own Security Council for failing to end the unrest in Syria as fighting rages.

It passed a non-binding resolution, which also condemns the Syrian government's use of heavy weapons, by 133 votes to 12 with 31 abstentions.

The move came after the resignation of UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan and the failure of his six-point peace plan.
