I would say that it shouldn't be classified as a right, that prevents it being a crime, I think regardless of how desperate the circumstances are, you are still committing mass murder. That being said, I wouldn't create a special crime for the general usage of it either, only for specific cases of usage, otherwise it should be considered as one of the crimes of war, including the environmental damage that usage caused, so therefore it could be measured against being proportionate, avoidable, etc. same as any other act of war, rather than as a right.

Sorry, I meant SC :P I guess my mind overruled the notion of it being in the GA when it considered nuclear weapons were involved xD

Haha makes sense, Ava.

Isn't SC more for R/D regulations and libs?

It is, but the fact I associate it with military subconsciously meant I, focussing on something else for a second, typed "SC" instead :P

I agree the wordage is iffy but there are situation where the possession if not the usage is extremely useful, and I think the "self-defense" argument comes into play at some point.
"Yo you nuked me I'm gonna nuke you back" is a big threat.

I would concede that possession should be tolerated under international law, at least on this game. But I stick to my point on the whole treating it as an act of way with massive destruction and huge consequences, rather than a right.

Threatening to use nuclear weapons can be an "act of aggression" under certain circumstances as well as a "preparation to commit a crime against humanity". Please note though that this is a very new development in international law, as the crime of aggression is included in the 2010 Amendments to the Rome Statute (International Criminal Court charter), the jurisdiction amendment part of which will likely enter into force after 2017.

That all sounds eminently reasonable!

Voted against the GA resolution, as per 80% of the region.
