    It depends if there are countries that feel like enforcing the UN resolution. If so, the resolution gives them backing. Otherwise it just shows that countries will vote for a resolution.

    No one is forced, I don't believe. I just think that it is understood that if your country has a delegate in the UN that you will back and follow through on their desicions. If you are not part of United Nations (which few countries aren't) then I guess you don't HAVE to do what they say...though it is frowned upon and most countries want a good image.

    Some countries have veto power...those on the five permanent members of the UN security council....really no one is forced since UN is a toothless dog....he does nothing....its sanctions for instance are inefficient
