Libya Wins Seat on U.N. Security Council

Libya has been granted a seat on the UN Security Council. The US have not revealed how they voted in the proposal.
The article reveals, Susan Cohen, of Cape May Court House, N.J., who lost her 20-year-old daughter, Theodora, in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, said the United States should oppose Libya's candidacy for a seat because Libyan leader Moamar Gadhafi was responsible for the attack.
``I feel that the U.S. has totally lost its moral compass,'' she told The Associated Press. ``Gadhafi blew up an American plane.''
Now, my heart aches for all those who died on 103, none more so that those parents who lost their children, but there was also more that 400 parents who lost their children to the US, and it's destruction of Iran Air 655. (see here - ).
Is the death of one child worth more that the death of another? Surely not. The dead are dead, and whether it be by an improvised explosive device or by guided missile, the perpretrators should face appropriate justice. This has not happened with either tragedy.
