Whose Peace Will the United Nations Keep?

Soon after its formation at the end of World War II, the UN became compromised in the cold war. The UN needs to be restored to its full promise. It should be in the forefront of international relations, the leader rather than the led.Only the UN should have the right to call up military force and to control the sale of arms and nuclear technology. The permanent powers' veto should be abolished and a majority vote in the Security Council should prevail. A system of rotation of all the seats on the Council should be created. Today we are watching nationalism run rampant around the world. The case for a true world government, such as the UN has all the provision to be, does cry out. The opportunity is now.
