I found this to be one of the best appeals to the United States..an appeal to relinquish its Security Council veto power in favor of majority voting. In Khanna's words, "No country has more frequently exercised its veto right, while simultaneously denouncing other nations' use of it."
He calls for a stronger United Nations, which can extend (and repair tarnished) American influence while also making unilateral action by the United States unnecessary in the future.
Will anyone listen?
