It's just been announced that President Obama will be the first American president ever to chair the UN's Security Council.
Some background on this august group.
The permanent five members of the UN "Security" Council sell over 85% of the world's arms.
Who do they sell them too?
Half of the sales go to the world's poorest countries.
Don't count on the "Security" Council making this a subject of study or public debate.
The #1 seller of arms in the world?
Uncle Sam. No one else comes even close.
