General Assembly Resolution # 266
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
The World Assembly,
Acknowledging that nations may possess chemical weapons,
Realizing that some nations use chemical weapons both domestically and in military conflict,
Whilst understanding the massive casualties and long term environmental damage that these weapons may cause; also believing that small scale tactical defensive usage of these weapons is sometimes vital to the survival of smaller nations,
For the purposes of this protocol:
"Chemical agent" shall be defined as any substance that is capable of causing death or severe harm to a person, plant, animal, a habitable area or to the environment, primarily through its toxic chemical properties,
"Riot control agent" shall be defined as any lachrymatory chemical substance that is designed to non-lethally incapacitate and subdue any conscious sentient person, plant or animal, primarily via the chemical effects of such agent,
The General Assembly hereby declares:
The use of chemical agents as weapons (hereafter referred to as chemical weapons) in any capacity that may injure or destroy military personnel, or the environment shall be limited to defensive or delaying operations of aggressive offensive forces,
The use of chemical weapons that have a reasonable probability of affecting civilian populations shall be prohibited,
Member nations shall be permitted to utilize riot control agents, within the boundaries of current and future World Assembly legislation,
Member nations shall take all measures necessary and practical in preventing the production, sale, or transfer of chemical weapons from their own nation to another party, if the transfer process is considered to violate the intentions and provisions of this protocol,
Member nations shall take all necessary, and available precautions to secure, and prevent their chemical weapon stockpiles from accidental release, or falling into the hands of individuals whom have the intent to violate the intentions and provisions of this protocol,
The World Assembly Chemical Weapons Commission (WACWC) shall be established, and be tasked with the following mandate:
To develop and maintain a library of known chemical weapons, and to share this information with member nations,
To assist member nations in establishing effective programs meant to defend against chemical weapons,
To provide medical and humanitarian assistance to member nations subject to unprovoked offensive chemical weapon attacks, in cooperation with the International Humanitarian Aid Coordination Committee.
Member nations shall be permitted to stockpile chemical agents, so long as they are in compliance with the provisions and intent of this protocol.
