    To take action against a country the UN ha to pass a resolution. For example:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Secur...

    ...and more recently

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Secur...

    Note 1244 was adopted specifically to stop a tyrant (Slobodan Milosevic) from committing genocide in Kosovo.

    The UN was not originally seen as a world government but a forum, basically a place for discussion.  Every member of the UN is an individually sovereign country, meaning the UN doesn't have the power to make anyone do anything.  The UN NEVER EVER authorizes invasion or military action.

    The UN can issue 'requests', but if you ignore them, all it can do is write you an angry letter.  That's how it was conceived from the beginning.
