The More The Merrier

India, Japan want seats in Security Council
Japan, Brazil, Germany and India formed a lobbying group on Tuesday to help one another get permanent seats on the UN Security Council and head off proposals that might work against them.
It is hard to argue against allowing these countries into the Security Council. They are certainly as important as some of the Council's other permanent members. Additionally, it would be nice if the Security Council better reprsented the interests of the Third World. The only problem is that increasing the number of members makes decision making less efficient, but then again those that are really interested in quick results generally don't look toward the UN anyhow.
