The US does pay a full 22% of the UN budget, I would say that gives them a little clout. China is at 8% and Russia at about 3%.

Originally the uN was supposed to be a nations forum where every nation had a vote, for or against any action taken uniulaterally against any other nation.
But right away the UN Security Council of superpwoers was formed, giving then the power over the general assembly to decide these issues.
So tilt and tilt, nowadays its used as a political arena, especially by the United states to impose its will on other nations thru resolutions that allow sanctions (siege measures), Humanitarian corridors and Interventions (invasions) ultimately leading to Regime Change (Coups) that destroy gubments, their leaders and infrastructure, in the name of Humanity.
Something the UN was designed to prevent: superpowers picking on hapless nations under false pretenses for monetary gain, power and control.
