I always wondered how do others United Nations Member States feel when dealing with the five permanent members of the security council. How can such a policy be justified until that day?

Is it fair that White always moves first in chess? Is it fair that Spades outrank Hearts in Bridge?

It’s the rules of the game. If you want new rules, then invent a new game. I have no doubt that at some point in the future the rules of the UN will be changed, maybe to strip Russia of a permanent seat at the Security Council, or to award seats to Germany and/or Japan (after all memories of WW II are exorcised, of course). Maybe before that even happens the UN will be rendered irrelevant by other developments, such as an East – West or Muslim – non-Muslim conflict that splits it beyond a diplomatic ability to repair it.

The Security Council was developed following the end of WW II in an attempt to prevent WW III. So far, it’s doing exactly what it was intended to do. It’s not there to make the world perfect. That’s your job.
