When has UN backing ever worked on anything against one of the big chairs at the Security council? The sole example was because the Russians were stupid enough to sit a meeting out and The PRC wasn’t recognized at the table.When the likes of China, Russia and the EU are busy working on measures to counteract the US’ unilateral withdrawal from the UN backed nuclear deal that started all this?
Even with Russia and China that’s two vetos right now.
So you claim the US is blowing holes in Japanese and other allied states Tankers? That’s bunk unless you can provide more than a “smell”.
