According to the UN website, UN has the following functions and powers:
- to maintain international peace and security in accordance with the principles and purposes of the United Nations;
- to determine the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression and to recommend what action should be taken;
- to take military action against an aggressor;
Beside of these UN duty, Why do obvious humanitarian issues like helping wounded and kids, need to be voted on by members of the United Nations Security Council?
I am referring to the latest resolution proposed by Brazil on humanitarian aid and the Gaza hospital, which was vetoed by the US despite 12 votes in favor.
It is an obvious fact that all countries should help children, women and the wounded.
