[PASSED] Repeal "Dastardly Nukes Thingy"

Postby Wallenburg » Tue Dec 13, 2016 2:12 am

Repeal "Securing Nuclear Materials From Dastardly Menaces"
Category: Repeal || Resolution: GAR#391 || Proposed by: Wallenburg

The World Assembly,

Understanding the need for member states to remain capable of self defense,

Recognizing the right of member states to possess nuclear weapons,

Concerned that GAR#391 fails to adequately address the issue of nuclear arms production,

Recognizing that the text of GAR#391 is entirely identical to that of GAR#351, "Nuclear Materials Safeguards", which was repealed handily for glaring issues that persist in this iteration,

Disappointed that clause four of GAR#391 grants generous funds to aggressive and warlike nations, and that it may encourage them to further develop their nuclear arsenals at the expense of the World Assembly,

Aware that ambiguous references to the "wrong hands" only leave room for subjective and conflicting perspectives on which nations ought to have the right to possess nuclear weapons, contrary to the principle of existing legislation on that subject,

Hereby repeals GAR#391, "Securing Nuclear Materials From Dastardly Menaces".

People really overstate the power of delegate votes. Heavens, there's much more difficulty in getting a proposal through TNP and Europeia. 1.7 thousand votes right there.

"Also this resolution forces small open nations like ours, who are not big players internationally, to somehow track and intervene in the selling of nuclear arms to 'the wrong hands', a phrase so vague it could quite literally be an excuse for any nation to declare war on another nation for owning nuclear weapons."

OOC: WALL campaigned against this in TNP and Euro - I personally sent out an IFV to WA members in my region - and I was actually about to write up a repeal myself when Wallenburg beat me to it.

Facepalm. There are explicit clauses of the Accord (which is being repealed in TNP and Europeia) which make it clear it does not bind a certain vote. Secondarily, Europeia consented to sending messages to their own members, so it doesn't trigger the Accord anyway. Stop pretending the Accord says something it doesn't actually say.

Alexander Smith, Tinhamptonian Delegate-Ambassador to the World Assembly: The Tinhamptonian delegation has also granted consent for the receipt of campaign approval telegrams, and yet nothing's cropped up in my inbox, or in Jamie's*, although that is mainly because they only gave provisions for one inbox.
