Here's a brief description of how I envision the reorganized United Nations during the UN/Solinoid Conflict, just for those who might be interested...
Organization of the New United Nations
NUNC - (New United Nations Council): Formed in 1997, the NUNC is the primary governing body of the United Nations responsible for all operations regarding the Solinoid threat and technologies. Located in the mountains of Switzerland, the NUNC is authorized a large budget for study and development of Solinoid Technology. By the end of the Global Civil War, the NUNC will be placed in charge of all military forces and will take control of the governments of all member nations forming the very first Global Centralized Government. This new UN Council will be given over-all charge of all further research into the alien technologies, and all control of military forces aimed in defense against the threat. It will draw military personnel and equipment from all members of the United Nations.
UNUMC - (United Nations Unified Military Command): The Unified Military Command is in charge of all UN Military Forces and is the main Military Council for the United Nations. Located at the UN Headquarters in Switzerland, the UNUMC is the chief agency responsible for all UN Military operations, both in space and on Earth. Formed in 1997 under the New UNC, the Military Command is responsible for conducting the Global Civil War and will pull resources from every member of the UN. By the end of the war the UNUMC will be split into various regions of responsibility and will have numerous branches of service. The 3 Primary Divisions of the UNUMC are the UN National Guards Command, UN Space Navy Command, and UN Joint Special Operations Command. The UN Military Command Council is made up of representatives of the various regions and branches as detailed below.
There are two primary regions of control in the UNUMC, the Northern Military Protectorate, and the Southern Military Protectorate, which split the globe at the equator. Each of these regions has been split into zones.
In the North, these zones are; The North-American Zone, North Atlantic Zone, European Zone, Asian Zone, and North Pacific Zone.
In the South these zones are; the South-American Zone, South Atlantic Zone, African Zone, Indian Ocean Zone, and South Pacific Zone.
The Commanders-in-Chief of each of these areas holds a seat in the Unified Military Command Council, and is responsible for overseeing military operations in his region. There are 12 regional zone Commanders on the council for the UNUMC, plus the command staff for each.
UNNG - (UN National Guards): Earth-bound forces are all members of the UN National Guards. The National Guards are split into 4 branches of service; Navy Guards, Air Guards, Army/Marines Guards, and Auxiliary Guards. Each of these commands is responsible to the zone C-in-C for his region of control and forms the command staff for each Regional Commander. The National Guards are responsible for all Earth-Bound defenses and also provide the maintenance and supply personnel for the UN Space Fleets. The Commander-in-Chief of the National Guards holds a seat on the UNUMC.
UN Navy Guards (UNNG): operate all sea-borne Naval vessels and aircraft for the UN Military.
UN Air Guards (UNAG): operate all Air Force aircraft for the UN Military.
UN Army/Marines Guards (UNMG): All Army and Marines ground combat Infantry forces of the UN Military. This also includes armoured and artillery forces.
UN Auxiliary Guards (UNAG): All support, engineering, and supply forces for the UN Military, including medical services and any other non-combat military forces.
UNSC - (UN Space Command): This command is responsible for all Space-based defenses in the UN Military. The UNSC is split into 3 regions; Lunar Forces, Mars Forces, and Outer System Forces. Its Commander-in-Chief also holds a seat on the UNUMC, as do each of the 3 region commanders. The UNSC is split into 3 branches of service; the UN Space Navy, UN Space Marines, and UN Space Warfare. Each of these commands is responsible to the zone C-in-C for his region of control and forms the command staff for each Regional Commander.
UN Space Navy (UNSN): All ships and aircraft of the UN Military space forces.
UN Space Marine Corps (UNSMC): all space Infantry forces and support assets for the UN Military space forces. The UNSMC also operate UAV's for close support of infantry units, and for Combat Air Patrols aboard ship.
UN Space Warfare (UNSW): all satellite and remote weapons systems for the UN Military space forces.
UN JSOC - (UN Joint Special Operations): Unlike other services in the UN Military, the UN JSOC is not split into separate branches of service. Instead, the JSOC oversees all special covert operations, operates the fighter training schools for the UN, and provides forces for Electronic Warfare within the UN Military. Its aircraft squadrons are organized into small detachments for service as scouting squadrons in the UN Space Navy, and for long-range and deep space forward operations behind enemy lines. In the main fleet role, the UN JSOC provides the ELINT/AWACS units aboard ship in the UN Space Navy. The Commander-in-Chief of the UN JSOC holds a seat on the UNUMC. All members of the UN JSOC are trained for Sea, Air, Land, and Space (SEALS) combat as special forces troops.
All together there are 22 members of the UN Unified Military Command council, plus command staff, who report directly to the New United Nations Council and are responsible for all operations conducted by the UN Military. All other personnel are subject to the orders and authority of this council and are governed by the Military codes of conduct established by council regulations. The unified UN Military also oversees budgeting requirements and personnel recruitment for all branches of the UN armed forces, under the governance of the New United Nations Council.

Organization of the Anti-United Nations
As the Global Civil War expanded various smaller nations formed loose alliances to resist the United Nations and its influence on local politics. Initially this resistance was aimed mainly at trying to secure the remaining alien wreck rather than turning it over to the UN, and the smaller nations fought each other as well as resisting the UN. Over the course of the war, resistance to the New UN Government would become more organized though each nation had its own reasons for joining the AUN.
Unlike the NUNC, the Anti-UN Alliance (LPOYVS: Liga protiv ob"yedineniya Vooruzhennyye sily, Anti-Unification League Armed Services) is a loose confederation of nations whose main goal is to resist UN and foreign control. Some nations have joined to resist any form of united government or outside interference, others have joined from a desire to gain their own power and control. What-ever the reason for joining the AUN, many of these nations also remain at war with others in the alliance.
Since there is no formal central government, the AUN also does not have the funding available its counter-part and each member is responsible for its own military forces and supplies. Most of these nations use older technologies, aircraft long since removed from the inventories of more developed states, and weapons long obsolete. Some purchase weapons from foreign sources as they can afford them, others gain them through the black market and illegal arms dealers. The larger AUN nations can afford to manufacture vehicles and weapons under license, usually from Soviet and ex-Soviet sources, though some also manufacture older NATO designs as well. Once the Soviet Union collapsed, only China had the resources available for modern development, though lagging far behind the UN in military build-up.
At the end of the Global Civil War, most Anti-UN nations agreed to join the UN against the Solinoid threat, how-ever, large swaths of the Middle-East, Africa, the South Pacific, and Eastern Europe remain decimated. There are many small guerrilla bands and some rogue nations that remain hostile to UN forces. Russia struggles to pull itself together after the collapse and, though nominally a member of the UN, it is unable to meet all of its UN commitments. It is into this state of unrest and recovery that the lead forces of the Solinoid invaders arrive.
