The United Nations was founded in 1944 after World War II by the allied forces at a time when they were very much flush with their victory. The allied forces included USA, Great Britain, Russia, China, and France.The UN, like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), is an undemocratic and unjust organization. The other two have particularly discriminatory policies and will not allow an African or Asian to head them. Similarly, the allied forces denied Germany, Japan, Africa and Asia from being part of the Security Council as they referred to them as defeated nations.We all know that the General Assembly is a toothless bulldog as any decision made there can be overturned by the Security Council. The impotence of the General Assembly is reflected in its inability to bring about peace in the DR Congo, Somalia, Darfur, not to mention Iraq. In other words, the UN belongs to the USA and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Despite its pretence of being an independent UN agency, its policies are generally dictated by the US.Indeed, how can the international community expect only US, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Great Britain and France  to have complete monoply over nuclear weapons and to hold the rest of the world to ransom? This is an unacceptable situation. How can the UN deny the rest of the world the opportunity to acquire nuclear knowledge just because Washington, Paris and London feel that this should not be in the hands of the coloured races of the world?To insist on having Iran's nuclear work monitored by the IAEA is unfair and there can be no world peace if the international community shows weakness in the face of the proliferation of nuclear weapons. We disagree with the French leader's belief that nuclear Iran could threaten the world when the US is using its veto to launch an attack on other nations without any justification. The UN Security Council has no right to stop or monitor  other nations' nuclear progress if they claim to be advocates for democracy.  Every nation has the ultimate right to seek scientific knowledge acquired through education.
