Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In NATO nothing matters except the opinion of the US. NATO also represents the interests of "the West". It is not neutral. The UN is neutral. Most UN members are, in fact, formal democracies:
And Sudan or Burma don't have veto. That is an American anti-UN talking point. They can't block General Assembly resolutions or Security Council resolutions, should they get to sit on the Security Council. The last time Sudan was in the UNSC was in 1973, and Burma/Myanmar has never been.
