32. Why should only these few "great powers" count?

What about the UN general assembly? Why not allow everyone, from India to Brazil to Nepal to Cuba to Myanmar to Ecuador, to have a say? I'll bet you that any motion to approve military action Syria would FAIL such a test. Russian and China represent the developing countries that account for most of the world's population.

It's like your saying, how dare China and Russia, which represent many more people than the US, France, and Britain DARE have a contrary view? How dare they favor a political solution? Jeez...
