UN Security Council 'Unfit for Purpose'

"Our concern is that the U.N. Security Council is charged with protecting international peace and security and yet in a case like Syria, where civilians are clearly being targeted, they basically chose not to act and when they did finally act, it was quite weak," Brown said.

China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States are permanent members of the Security Council.

Brown says these countries are also major arms exporters, a situation that can create a conflict of financial interest.

"Of the top six arms dealers in the world, five of those top six are permanent members of the Security Council.  And there is a certain irony in the fact that the governments charged with international peace and security in fact are major arms dealers," Brown said.

Russia harvesting $billions worth of innocence Syrian people blood by selling weapons to the criminal Assad, and veto against Syrian people. Russia said that they are doing legally. Well yes that is perhaps but clearly they failed to be there as a leader. So boot them out from the UNSC.  There is clearly something has to be done.  Time has changed so the UNSC should be change as they unable to carry out the Charter. 

 Also the UN observers found that “Both sides in Syria abuse human rights - U.N. report” the very dangerous thing, try to put the Opposition equal bargaining power so it has a position. The  world should know they are not equal firepower how they can put the Opposition as equal “ Both parties..” one side comes with tanks and heavy ammunition shelling  other side very lightly armed for self defense or defense their own people. So do not put them as “ Both parties..” have same bargaining position.
