#1 There are three practical considerations for who should be a veto power on the UNSC. They must be an economic power; a military power capable of projecting their military far beyond their own borders; and have the willingness to use their military both for the UN, and themselves, unilaterally.

In other words, a veto is based not on their ability to help the UN, but by their ability and determination to go it alone, despite what the UN wants. To be respected, they must also be able to threaten.

This being said, India and Japan each deserve a veto, but only if they can project their forces and threaten others with them.

The UNSC will never volunteer a new seat, it must be forced, by circumstances, to grant one.
