Historical Resolution #108
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Historical Resolution #16 “Elimination of Bio Weapons” (Category: Global Disarmament; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
NOTING: UN resolution 16 for the "Elimination of Bio Weapons", although expressing an admirable goal, is completely inadequate to that goal. The text of the resolution contains nothing more than one statement describing the undesirable aspects of biological weapons and one statement saying its important to eliminate them. Unfortunately there are no statements:
-- Defining a single criteria for what specific weapons it's talking about
-- Establishing that they actually BE eliminated, rather than just saying its important.
-- Specifying how they should be eliminated (such as forbidding their elimination through using them all up on other nations).
-- Accounting for what should be done about the fact that non UN member nations will still have these weapons.
FURTHER NOTING: That given these shortcomings it is currently possible for any nation to do ALL of the following without EVER being in breach of resolution 16:
--Produce biological weapons.
--Stockpile biological weapons.
--Trade in biological weapons.
--Actually USE biological weapons.
IT IS PROPOSED: This resolution be repealed so that it may be replaced with a new, effective resolution.
