‘’ VETO’’ a Latin word for ‘’ I forbid ‘’ a word that was created during an era of false pride in might,power, race or religion , an era plagued by slavery imperialism and colonization an era where men were enslaved by theories that became beliefs .
The veto system power within the United nation UN was given to the major powers at the time , countries and empires that wore the colonization badge proudly or was a victor at the time or perhaps was feared due to assets or numbers ,According to Wikipedia this system was created to ensure that no action will be taken against any member of the united nation security council UNSC which in return sustains the membership and participation of those major powers.
That being said most countries adopted the veto systems within their systems to ensure that some actions can be rejected and sometimes this power was given to a position or a group , yet with time the Veto system began to lose weight and became an outcast within democratic systems yet sadly the veto system have won its most important within the international umbrella it’s hypocrisy spreads deep within the roots of the USCN ofcours with the consent of the courtiers that have rejected the same Veto system in their own countries.
For many years the us was demonized by must Islamic countries for using it’s Veto right more than 36 times to stop any UN resolution against Israel even if it was guilty of what it is being accused of, that bias gave extremist a rich play ground for recruitment to revolt against their governments in the name of religions or national interests or ”the enemy of my enemy is my alley” those recruitment banners gave terrorist groups a strong foothold in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia etc and strengthened extremist governments such as Iran and as we see now in this so called Arabian spring Islamic power is raising to the top in elections cause people think Islam is the only thing that will put things back in their place and have the courage to stand to major powers to restore old unity and glory days, yet the way I see it is most existing systems or group have a hidden agenda and if they are not in bed already with major powers then they are flirting with them then on the other hand we have the fanatics, now lately with the Syrian tragedy we see China and Russia blocking actions against the dictator system in Syria of course to protect their last fort in the area and to get back in the international theater and apparently so far they are winning this round and making sure they split the spoils of battle like what the other countries did in Iraq and Libya and only god knows what Russia is given to look the other way while the alliance strikes inside Syria .
The veto system is a dictatorship system regardless how nice it seems within in it’s veins u can hear the screams of victims screaming ‘’it’s for the greater good’’ and if people that goes by it and wields it on the international level have rejected it within their own systems then why should we accept it and why should they enforce it upon others, and if history have taught us something it would be that empires does age and perish power does shift and change and the victor of today is the victim of tomorrow and through all those phases it Is only the average person like you and I that pays the price and be the victim of the winds of change.
Is the veto system the most needed greater good system and it shall remain or is the veto system is only there to protect the interests of the major powers?
