First, the pleasant business... To the Union of Democratic States, congratulations on your recently concluded elections. It's always heartwarming to see democracy alive and well in NationStates, even if things may get turbulent at times. TSP looks forward to hearing more about the future for the UDS...

The notion that you can’t critique or even be knowledgeable about defending without being online between the hours of midnight and 2am to move from a jump point to a target, has to be the weakest excuse for bad judgement y’all can come up with. Do you also avoid talking politics because you’ve never...

For the record, I don't really care if Banana thinks different laws for birds and sharks is micromanagement, or if he thinks people will be opposed to more than one environmental law. Nor am I deterred by concern trolling about how difficult it might be to pass multiple environmental laws in the fut...

OOC: I'm opposed to this. There are still huge swathes of the environmental category open with the target resolution in place. AFAIC it doesn't block a whole lot but I would be interested in hearing of examples of worthy resolutions which are blocked by it. It blocks literally any attempt to addres...

Ideally, there won't be a single replacement for this. The repeal argues that the World Assembly shouldn't try to address conservation of all migratory species in a single resolution. That, instead, we should be making more tailored resolutions about the conservation of different types of animals. S...

The simple truth is that it doesn't make any sense at all, because the resolution was sloppily written. You'll be hard-pressed to find a war where all parties involved are keen and eager to have war declared on them. "War as a consensual act" is an oxymoron that baffles international legal...

As a general rule, Sandaoguo doesn't believe the World Assembly should be in the business of writing criminal laws for non-international crimes. What does it matter to the Kingdom of Rovikstead if our islands don't criminalize the false claim of military service? We must concur with the other delega...
