  • Thomas Weiss. "The Illusion of UN Security Council Reform". Washington Quarterly 2003 - "those more interested in results than in process were quick to point out that a Security Council of 21 or 25 members would hardly improve effectiveness—a 'rump' General Assembly certainly would have increased the chances for what one observer poetically called a Sitzkrieg over Iraq. Moreover, the group would be too large to conduct serious negotiations and still too small to represent the UN membership as a whole."
