UN a toothless organization

The UN has no voice. The latest example is the Iraq war. Despite protests by a majority of countries, it could not do anything to restrain the US from attacking Iraq. It is a one-man show and other members are mute spectators. It’s time to amend the UN’s constitution to make all member states answerable.
