US political analyst to ST: UNSC is often used as a political weapon

The US author and political analyst Dean Henderson has asserted that the United Nations Security Council is often used as a political weapon by the controlling nations.

The MP affirmed that world’s focuson the Eastern Ghouta battle in Damascus is similar to what happened when the Syrian army started to liberate Homs, Aleppo and Deir Ezzour cities from foreign-backed terrorist organizations.
