thanks, DT.

...i am glad, because i was afraid that all the efforts to 'buy' votes through their (Turkey) charitable donations would work in changing the balance, with slim votes a possibility. Frankly, it was an improvement to last year's appearance by Erdogan, he didn't beat anybody up trying to get through the wrong door, not so rough around the edges, but it wasn't enough to overcome the credibility issues he faces, what with allies like the US, (and NATO) standing there embarrassed, for having "assumed" too much more than once, especially with the specter of Kurdish genocide a possibility while Turkey does not act; Leadership is needed, Erdogan is not as good a Statesman as he thinks.

The five winners will join the Security Council on Jan. 1 and serve through 2016 as non-veto-wielding members. They will replace Argentina, Australia, Luxembourg, South Korea and Rwanda.


so what exactly are they able to do here.

Campaigning so hard that they even threw a plush dinner party the day before to try and bribe their way in. But the UN could see right through their lying cheating barbaric tendencies. Good bye and good riddance to bad rubbish.

...permanent members may have a veto power, but the other powers, as a minority, if you will, hold the balance.
