Iran, UN, the Bomb & all that

Nuclear progress in Iran has dire consequences if diplomacy fails

So: diplomatic progress with Iran is dependent on "Russia and China, who hold the right of veto at the UN Security Council".
Meanwhile, a common argument in the debate over the future of Trident is that this is the essential criterion for Britain's membership of that Council.
Meanwhile, the resolutions of the UN General Assembly are ignored.
Not entirely unlike the situation with resolutions passed by (or the lack of resolution of) the League of Nations.
