Saudi Arabia has declined to sit on the UN Security Council, citing its inefficacy. "Work mechanisms and double-standards on the Security Council prevent it from carrying out its duties and assuming its responsibilities in keeping world peace."

Good for them. The whole UN is a joke anyway.

It'll turn into the League of Nations if it doesn't do some reforming.

I think Germany and Japan ought to be given permanent seats on the Security Council.

Japan has the world's fifth largest military and the third largest economy. Germany has the world's ninth largest military and the fourth largest economy.

Interesting stance. You don't think it'll just exacerbate the problem it has with power loading the security council?

The Security Council should be "power loaded." The countries that actually enforce Security Council resolutions should be the ones that decide what those resolutions are.
