Well this can go three ways.Either The Chinese will veto this resolution or Putin gets removed or The U.N. resolution passes with abstaining votes. This could be the big move for The United Nations if passed.

Zelensky said Russia should be removed from its place as a permanent member of the Security Council, where it holds veto power, arguing that it was time to reform the global peace-keeping body.

“We are dealing with a state that is turning the veto [in] the U.N. Security Council into the right to die,” Zelensky said in his remarks. “This undermines the whole architecture of global security and allows them to go unpunished.”

    Since the U.N. is nothing but an ineffectual toothless waste of money, what difference does it make? It is nothing but a corrupt powerless organization that has never lived up to its premise. Don't forget that the "illustrious" W.H.O., that did so poorly during the pandemic, is a U.N. organization. It is a hoot that 40% of the member countries that are condemning Russia are also guilty of either past or current genocide and/or terrorism. If the U.N. was effective, then why do we need ambassadors and diplomats around the world? Oh well, it gives the conspiracy folks another imaginary demon to worry about and puts an easy to blame face to their fears. Bob

    You forgot the Denver Airport there Bob! 😁All kidding aside the artists had a good time at both places with their symbology.Heck even the Pope is kissing the Ukraine Flag and blessing it!


    Of course every major power is building hyper-sonic missiles with nukes now so the son of perdition is still in the wings for now.

    There is no mechanism to remove a permanent member of the Security Council. What has to happen is what was done with Nationalist China (Taiwan) - revoke their UN membership. Nationalist China is out, and the PRC takes their seat. This takes a two-thirds vote of the UN General Assembly.

    This action seems unlikely to happen with Russia, but as events continue to unfold in Ukraine, it is becoming more and more difficult to be a Putin Pal.
