comment Why is China a member of the UN Security Council?
@Schwern: Saudi Arabia wasn't exactly a great power at the time, but now Arabic is the sixth language of the UN. Some Indian language is a good candidate for the seventh. In answering as I did, I drew heavily on what we know today (and what FDR, but not Churchill), foresaw in the 1940s.

comment Why is China a member of the UN Security Council?
@Schwern: France and Poland were "German occupied" and likewise, India was "British occupied," and it was understood that these occupations would end as a result of victory in World War II. At which time India would be "on its way" to being a major power.
