    The Security Council is one of the six principle organs that make up the United Nations. The United Nations is made up of almost all countries in the world, whereas the Security Council (UNSC) has about 15 members. Five of those members are permanent and have the power to veto resolutions. They are: the US, Russia, China, France, and the UK. The other ten members are elected to one year terms, and special attention is given to the region they are from. So two african nations, two western European, two Eastern European, two Asian, etc... The Security Council is one of the most powerful international groups ever created because it can impose sanctions of any kind, blockades, or even call for military action. Anything the Security Council passes, must be enforced by the countries.
