The most meaningless phrase I have encountered in the past few weeks

"This landmark decision has the potential to change the lives of the
billions of human beings who still lack access to water and sanitation,"
she said of the resolution adopted yesterday by the Geneva-based Council.

Taken from:Right to water and sanitation is legally binding, affirms key
UN body, http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=36308&Cr=water&Cr1=

Since when does a single decision by a UN body make a change in the
lives of millions, not billions. Where are we at with the Millennium
Development Goals?
