1. They need to kick Russia out of the UN Security Council.

Until then, the meetings are useless.

2. As Permanent Member of the Security Council this is not possible

And if it was, would be a very complicated process and not happen easily or quickly

6. Do you think Russia "is a great help in peace keeping" in Syria?

Seriously?

Russia has supported President Bashar al-Assad of Syria since the beginning of the Syrian conflict in 2011: politically, with military aid, and (since September 2015) with direct military involvement. Russian soldiers personally killed 6,928 Syrian civilians, including 2,042 children. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_Syrian_civil_war

And how was Russia "a great help in peace keeping" in the former Yugoslavia? Russia gave Miloshevic false hope that they would support him militarily (even though they never did) thus emboldening Miloshevic, which extended and worsened the conflict.

7. Institutions don't seem to be set up to deal with leaders who are ruthless sociopaths.

Institutions just let them carry on and commit crimes.

And our Constitution and system is certainly being tested and showing that so far

11. Yes the US is not able to deal with emergency situations caused by criminal leaders.

If this were an audit, we would be flunking it.
