Yeah I don't consider that our government has any particular vested interest in what happens in Iraq (with the possible notable exception of reconstruction works, and continuing wheat exports and the like). It's more about our relationship with the US. Our somewhat one-sided relationship.

Well, is France a world power anymore? A nation with sufficient economic/military/geoplitical clout to merit its current position? I think theres scope for reassessment of positions on the security council after a set number of years, permanent members with permanent vetos isn't too democratic is it! Representation from each continent is a must.

Is Great Britain a world power anymore? if you want to get rid of vetos because of democratic ideals - good idea, but then we don't need a "club of superpowers" but something like ALL nations with the same chance to vote pro or against..

How to organize this is another difficult question which could be interesting to debate about.
