    The General Assembly is composed of all members of the UN and they debate some issues.

    The Security Council, on the other hand, is composed of 15 members - 5 permanent (the 'veto' powers) and 10 rotating spots. The five permanent members are USA, UK, France, Russian Federation, and China, and if even just one of them vote against a resolution, it will automatically fail. They are always on the Security Council. There are also 10 non-permanent members that serve 2 year terms. 5 new members come on as five leave yearly. Right now, the countries with one year remaining are: Burkina Faso, Costa Rica, Croatia, Libya, and Vietnem. The countries that will leave in 2010 are: Austria, Japan, Mexico, Turkey, and Uganda. The Security Council is more powerful than the General Assembly and can propose sanctions against countries.
