Yes, This "system" was set up at the end of WW II and while the so called 'Big 5' were all somewhat of a "super power" in their own right.
The Soviets, USA, China, UK, France. were the original members. China was replaced by the Communist Regime several years
It would take a concerted effort of the US, UK and at least a majority of the UN Member States to alter and remove any of the "permenent"
members of the Security Council. France is not a super-power;
it only has 54 million people, they act like they are better then anyone else. In the last century, there were two World Wars, France was easily
overrun by the Germans in the early days of each War. The UK (Great Britain) fought very hard and alone for a period, THATS a super-power.
France should be replaced by a "European Member" chosen from the Countries of Europe. The other states of the Security Council should stay as
Of course this is My Opinion, and each one has an opinion of their own.
