A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Proposed by: Wallenburg
General Assembly Resolution #418 “Safeguarding Nuclear Materials” (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Recognizing the precarious nature of international politics, especially between states where there exists the threat of nuclear devastation,
Understanding that the target resolution attempts to preserve peace among nuclear states through the near total deregulation of the construction, trade, and use of nuclear weapons,
Recognizing that this model is unsustainable, and fails to secure peace when nuclear states do not fear retaliation for any nuclear strikes they might commit to,
Alarmed that clause two "maintains the right of member nations to trade nuclear weapons or reactors", to any other state, regardless of the stability or belligerence of those states,
Seeing that this clause prohibits the Assembly from establishing regulations capable of limiting the accumulation of nuclear weapons and material in belligerent nations likely to instigate large-scale nuclear exchange, that is, the very nations that most compromise the principle of mutually assured destruction,
Also recognizing that international tensions between nuclear states cannot ease through the constant threat of an unprovoked first strike,
Observing that the target guarantees member states the right to deploy nuclear weapons in retaliation for any kind of attack, regardless of how minor it may be, and even if that attack occurs in retaliation for an act of aggression by the relevant member states,
Hereby repeals GAR #418, "Safeguarding Nuclear Materials".
