Think of the World Security Council as the United Nations with genuine authority and an actual military to back up their actions, instead of worthless UN "peacekeepers" that serve as little more than walking targets and cannon fodder for both sides of any given conflict.

So the Battle of New York would be the equivalent of the UN coming in and saving the day in Manhattan, while actual US forces were powerless to defend their own homeland.

Yes, it would be a huge black eye to the US military.
