On New Year’s Day, Germany began its two-year non-permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council. Yet many are questioning the organization’s ability to find solutions to problems around the world. Has the United Nations run its course?

The Germans are coming into the UN like "We are gud students and have learned our lessons well, let us convince you we should have a permanent set on the UN Security Council! We know your love of our "Mastery" of the subject will put humanity on track and "we" will lead the "Race" to the future.

- I guess they forgot that the UN was created *because* of Germany's actions (WWII).
- The UN has had one success: no direct wars between the major powers.
- If the UN needs money, why doesn't Germany throw in some from its export surplus?

It is irony that the United States had created the United Nation in order to preserve world peace (even some people argue that US had created the UN to rule the world by American way) , and the UN is endangered by the US.......

Seriously? The UN was dead and buried even before it official opening. The pro western biases and the fake integration of the other countries. With over 90% of the voting on all things being overruled or useless due to the permenent veto powers of the US, Britain, and France. Russia and China might as well have no say. Word soup is all that the is good FOR. And for all the useless body saying nice things about inequality, and other matters. The UN says it can't do any due to red tape, funding, or lack of any real power. But I keep seeing the UN upholding western nations, regardless of the realities. No the UN is a comic farce.

Germany has told France to give its permanent seat at the UN Security Council to the European Union so that the bloc can “speak with one voice” as it advances its defence plans.
German vice chancellor and finance minister Olaf Schloz made the proposal during a speech on the future of the EU in Berlin in November claiming it would be a “bold and smart goal,” reports The Brussels Times.

“If we are to take the European Union seriously, the EU should speak with one voice within the UN Security Council. In the medium term, France’s seat could be converted to a seat for the EU.”

He also acknowledged that “France and Germany are now acting together in this particular forum,” but an eventual seat for the bloc was necessary.

Huh, why should the UN be in opposition to President Trump?

It was broken the moment it came into existence.
