Round 22 in the UN

After 22 rounds not much has changed. In number 22, it was Guatemala 102, Venezuela 77, and a whopping 12 abstentions (perhaps out of sheer exhaustion?). This is possibly just like AMLO's protest, where a principled stand has been taken (i.e. seeking the UN seat to counter U.S. hegemony) and so an exit strategy must allow for a save of face.

Clearly, neither country will win, and both know that.
