SOCIALISTS STICKING TOGETHER: CHINA AND RUSSIA VETO SANCTIONS AGAINST MUGABE

SICKENING:
A draft resolution to impose sanctions on Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and a number of his key allies has been vetoed at the UN Security Council.

China and Russia both rejected the proposed measures, including a freeze on their financial assets and travel.
RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE DISGUSTING.

AND THEIR VETOES IN THE UNSC MAKE THE ENTIRE UN A JOKE.

The problem with the UN is that have to many countries with different interest, and when they are trying to fix something, if somebody doesn't like it because it could backfire onto them, they will veto any resolution.
Is time to make it majority, like in a Democratic process. If 99 people want to watch a channel to see a movie, 1 person veto shouldn't stop those 99 from watching what they want.
Also, I don't see the outrage from those countries trying to impose sanctions to Mugabe when somebody vetoes them. Is very convenient for some countries look very strong, and then somebody vetoes them and they are like "oh well, I tried... where is my paycheck?"
Is really disgusting.
Nigeria has sold 500 billions of oil to the World I heard today. Does anybody see infrastructure, education, hospitals, standard of living, ... for that amount of money? How can I be sure that those people attacking the oil platforms are not patriots, or just people tired of all the corruption and trying to get their part?
