Thoughts? What are the Chinese preparing for with all of this land reclamation and military expansion? Is this purely defensive? Or may this be leading to military action?

United Nations (Special Rules!) (gameID=170504) Constitution, laws and proposals
NOTE! THIS THREAD IS NOT FOR DISCUSSION!
It's a record of the constitution, laws and proposals made in the United Nations (Special Rules!) World Diplomacy XI game

About the game:
The game follows the concept that each player represents their respective nation at the United Nations. It should follow suit that moving out its units to do anything other than defend itself should anger the other nations greatly.

Most moves actually submitted (unless some debate becomes war) should be Holding.
This game is more of a forum for debate of different topics. Long phases, and a long game over all.

Proposal 2000.1.0

Being necessary for the maintenance of the state, the infamous drug cartels of the American continents must be brought down. I suggest a Pan-American coalition of Drug Interdiction, comprising of all the states in both North and South America, namely W. Canada, Quebec, the U.S. of A, Brazil, and Argentina.

Benefits:
It will stop the destabilization caused by the drug lords in our cities and borders.
Stop funding for terrorist organizations
Better of the lives of citizens in these afflicted areas

I propose that each of the aforementioned nations takes it upon themselves to liberate one SC - to be enumerated - and only one, for the benefit of all peoples in the world.

W. Canada shall bring aid to the people of Alaska, Quebec citizens of Godthab, and the U.S. of A. into residents of Mexico. Meanwhile, in S. America, Brazil shall liberate the Venezuelans, while Argentina seeks the relief of Uruguayans.

Members of these United Nations, citizens of our world, help us help our people and those around us. I beg you.

Proposal 2000.2.0 (proposed by Argentina).

RIGHT TO MOVE IN NON-SC-REGION ADJACENT TO HOME CENTER.
§1. All nations shall have the right to move their armies and fleets to all regions (including water-regions) that is adjacent to own home-centers, but ONLY regions without SC.
§2. If a Non-SC-region borders homecenters of two or more nations, no nation can enter that region without conscent from all nations with a homecenter bordering that region.
§3. The nation that has moved to a land-non-SC-region (according to §1-2) will have the right to claim that territory as their own, and if any other nation attacks that region, the rules of engagment will be applied.

Example: Argentina can move to Mendoza because it's adjacent to Chile (and actually all its home-SC), Brazil can move to Sao Paolo.
But neither Brazil or Argentina can move to Bolivia, unless they agree on a move.
Argentina can never (as a result of proposal 2000.2.0) move to Sao Paolo, as it's not adjacent to any of it's home centers.
Argentina and Brazil can't move to West Atlantic Ocean without agreement.

If Libya wants to move to mediterrain, the need consent from both EU and Near East.

2000.3.0 - development and sustainability of all members.

Each member state shall be able to claim and control one neutral SC before the end of the build phase.
Sago (101 D)
18 Dec 15 UTC
2000.3.1:
Each member state will be able to claim one SC province come the beginning of the build phase. This lets nation states chose which SC they would like to claim. If multi countries claim one SC, the nation with the most home SCs surrounding gains control, with the other nation gaining access to one non SC directly surrounding th targeted SC. When multiple countries have an SC they both want and have equal number of home SCs around it. The nations would discuss a compromise between themselves and present the compromise to the global chat. Nations that chose a SC that is 2 tiles away will need to tell the global chat their path of travel to the global chat. Once a nation gets their claimed SC, it becomes a core location to that nation thereafter.

Proposal 2000.4.0 Cosponsored by:
Argentina
Ghana
India
Libya
South Africa

We must face the realization that there are some nations who will seek to place themselves above all of others. In order to combat this evil, we may have to give in to a lesser evil ourselves. No one wishes more than I that each independent nation may live in harmony with the 17 powers. But this cannot be due to the actions of the few. Therefore, the actions of the many must be made to resist. In order to preserve the freedom of many, certain countries will be very unfortunately merged with others. We know that law breakers will take some land, therefore, it is necessary that each power negotiate a peaceful acquisition of one, and only one, neutral power to be approved of by the UN.

Therefore, each power will propose one small country that they wish to peacefully merge with.

Their choices shall then be individually put to a vote which must be approved by a simple majority.

Amendment 2000.4.1 (by India)
"Should any of the 17 powers secure more than one minor country's SCwith a game-year, then all signatory members to Proposal 2000.4.0 shall be in a state of war with the offending country or countries. The war shall not end until the SCs occupied by the offender or offenders have been liberated by the victorious UN powers, these centers then being evenly divided among the victors, with fractions being chose by a vote."

Proposal 2000.5.0 - UN Peace force, to keep the peace in Ethopia and Algeria.
(Proposed by Argentina, and co-sponsored by USA, Ghana, SA and Quebec)

Argentina propose that the following nations: Kenya, Ghana, EU and Near East will form a UN peace keeping mission, to meet the Libyan threat to freedom in North Africa.
As a response to the unconstitutional (Libya has broken the international law on paragraph 4b of the constituion, and paragraph 1 and 2 of the rules of engagment) aggression of Libya in Algeria and Ethiopia, the UN peace force will take the following actions:

In the autumn 2000:
Ghana will move Mali-Algeria. After Algeria is liberated, Ghana will keep peace troops in Algeria for an indefinite time to protect them against the aggressor of Libya. Ghana will also be permitted to temporarily (until Algeria is liberated) use Nigers territory to fight Libya if he resists.

EU will support the move Mali-Algeria. He will also move to Morocco for peace keeping purpose. If Libya resists he will be able to support the freeing of Algeria. After Algeria is liberated, EU will keep peace troops in Morocco for an indefinite time to protect them against the aggressor of Libya.

Kenya will publicly apologize (in the global chat) to Zaire for their unfortunate invasion, and at once move their troops temporarily to South Sudan, with support from Kenya (the territory). Next turn they will be able to liberate Ethiopia. After Ethiopia is liberated, Kenya will keep peace troops in Ethiopia for an indefinite time to protect them against the aggressor of Libya.

Near East will publicly apologize (in the global chat) to Turkey unfortunate invasion. Their troops will remain in Turkey for an indefinite time to protect them against the aggressor of Libya. Near East will attack the fleet in Egypt to keep it in place, and after Libya has built in the winter of 2000, Near East will assist Kenya in liberation Ethiopia if Libya resists.

In 2001.
This proposal for resolution will allow participating, to invade Libya, Egypt and/or North Sudan in 2001, if needed, to liberate Algeria and Ethiopia. The UN Peace Force will not have the intention to stay in the Libyan territories, and should swap them as soon as possible for the liberated territories of Algeria and Ethiopia.

This proposal for resolution doesn't give mandate to the participating nations to reduce Libyas force to fewer than 3 units, and Libya can't by this proposal be eliminated by the UN Peace Force. The goal of the Peace Force is to contain the Libyan units in their own territory.

Its really simple, anytime you join a live gunboat, you set an alarm and it reminds you "hey dumbass you joined a gunboat". Then you play that gunboat from anywhere on this amazing thing called a web browser. It comes standard on most phones and its really cool.
I get live updates straight to my phone anytime on webdip by just refreshing the page. You can download this free app simply by going to www.webdiplomacy,net and logging in on your phone!
