# Talk:Permanent members of the United Nations Security Council

I've added a map of the world showing the 1945 situation. This is an important part of the history of the Permanent Five - the fact that they all were at the time great colonial powers is perhaps the only reason why they ended up being the permanent members. But I am afraid that my map may not be fully factually accurate - I hope some connoisseurs of colonial history could amend my mistakes. And what especially complicated things was the British making all sorts of distinctions between their colonies - made zero sense to me. In any case, I hope you all like my map. --$\color{Blue}\mathcal{M}$$\color{Blue}\vec{( e\ ,}$$\color{Blue}t )$ = ? 14:13, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
