19. well, too bad so sad. That is what the U.N. is all about. If one of the big powers says no, that is

 

the way of things. The USA often does the same thing, you know, it often vetoes stuff to protect Israel. This is how the game is set up, and you can't just say "fuck the rules!" in the middle of the game.
