    United nations Security council concerns with military matters & warfare involving member nations. Its mandate is 'prevention of war'. Most times a war anywhere is started in which one or more of the five permanent members are overtly or covertly interested. It becomes then impossible to prevent the war as these five have veto power. However the body (goaded by its chairman, a post that rotates amongst the nations who in turn get elected by turns) passes a resolution or two and dust off the hands in the satisfaction that the job is done.

    UN is a confederation of world nations and it has a machinery of government with a constitution of its own. In this arrangement, the role of the Security Council is that of an Executive body. It remains in session throughout the year and takes decision on all important matters.

    as i understand. the UN security council is supposed to regulate warfare. they essentially write the rules and approve or prohibit certain things. like if america wanted to fly a plane into an al qaeda building, they'd have to pass it through the UN before they can do it. and pre-empively speaking, that wouldn't fly. no pun intended.
