A little more: The US objection is based on opposition to what we see as a tyranny of the majority. In response, we are trying to take the role of benevolent dictator.

An, democracy doesn't mean that you have to stop trying to get your way once the majority rules. The US can use whatever legal means is available to continue to fight. And illegal ones in limited cases as well. It is common in the US, for example for people to deliberately break a law to force a court challenge...

...Which by the way is also somethimg the UN lacks, which is part of the problem here: no independent judicial oversight and limited separation of powers.
