[PASSED] Commend Sciongrad

Postby Sainterre » Sun Apr 05, 2015 12:00 pm

The Security Council,

Cognizant of the many honorable deeds of the nation of Sciongrad,

Appluading the fact that Sciongrad, also through the nation of Connopolis, has authored sixteen General Assembly resolutions including:

    -GAR #242, Biological Warfare Convention, which prevented the distribution and use of biological weapons,

    -GAR #255, Rights of Neutral States, which had defined and established the rights of nations that had been unintentionally involved in a conflict,

Also appauding that through Connopolis, two Security Council resolutions were passed that include:

    -SCR #70, Commend Glen-Rhodes, which commended a nation that had authored seven important General Assembly resolutions that include: GAR #52 Food Welfare Act, and GAR #130 Elections and Assistance Act,

    -SCR #77, Condemn Milograd, which effectively condemned Milograd, a nation infamous for its coup d’état against the South Pacific,

Noting that most of the legislation that has been written by Sciongrad involves repealing previous legislation,

Affirming that this is evidence of Sciongrad's goal to make a World Assembly that is unhindered by unnecessary bureaucracy,

Admiring that Sciongrad has shown to be a mentor to other nations by their actions which include, but are not limited to:

    -The critique and feedback during the drafting processes of numerous World Assembly resolutions through their representative, Natalia Santos,

    -Having served in the leadership of the International Democratic Union in a number of key positions such as delegate and vice delegate, multiple times,

Believing that these actions are proof enough that many nations, new or old, can look up to Sciongrad,

Affirming that such an eloquent author, and role model should find recognition through this assembly,

Hereby Commends Sciongrad

"No Penalty Without Law" will likely be one of the closest votes of all time, but if it passes, it merits inclusion.

Thank you. I will be sure to include that as it is a proposal that has garnered much attention.

I realize that the timing of this is not the best, because of the very narrow margin in the current proposal and among many things, but I do not feel impatient about submitting it. If by internal politics you mean the 10KI commendation repeal or other things, I believe that the merits of the nation being nominated will show through the proposal.

You've done your research and have covered what Sciongrad has done fairly well. There's something that's moderately grating about your style, but that could just be the current time. :P

I'm not going to comment on my support or lack thereof, because I haven't decided if I agree or disagree with the nominee's worth, which is hypocritical of me, I will admit that.

I refuse to GHR this, but this is an honest R4 question to the author, people here and to the WA mods: Can a state be "an eloquent author"?
Represented permanently at the World Assembly by Benjamin Olafsen, and on an ad-hoc basis by Alethea Norrland and rarely Gaia Pao and Gabriel Dzichpol.

If a nation can author proposals/resolutions (which it's established that they can), then I guess they can do so eloquently.

The purpose of that statement is crediting Sciongrad, as a sovereign nation, as an author and sponsor of eloquent WA resolutions.

Still having trouble deciding whether to support this or not.

On one hand, most of the clauses seem plausible and I suppose Sciongrad has earned it. But on the other hand, I feel like something is missing...like if there should be a little something more for a commendation. Kind of hard for me to explain. I suppose the word "indecisive" best describes my stance here.

I'll have to re-read the existing criteria for commendations in the SC...

I can understand that you think there should be more substance in this proposal, but I think that it shows the commendable actions of this nation.

Well, I have always admired eloquence, literary ability and one who has authored so many proposals clearly is doing "good" for the fictional world we live in.

I'm in a good mood anyway (just came from an industrial metal concert \m/) so it has my approval.
