Outer Space Peace Act
A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.

Category: Global Disarmament Strength: Significant Proposed by: The Black Hat Guy

Description: The World Assembly,

RECOGNIZING the need to preserve the peaceful future of space travel and colonization,

REALIZING that nations will inevitably attempt to use space to further their own military efforts,

DESIRING to promote peace within space, given that it necessarily will be further colonized in order to preserve the future of sentient species,

HOPING that space will become a place of peace in which nations will not engage in warfare,

DEFINES for the purpose of this resolution:

(i) “Space” to be the entire area of the average distance from a inhabited area's land to its center plus half of that distance, that is inhabited by a civilian population of a sapient species at the time of the passage of this resolution,
(ii) Chemical weapon to be any chemical agent designed to cause death or disease to any living being without the use of explosive, bludgeoning, burning, puncturing, etc, force,
(iii) Nuclear weapon to be any weapon that derives a force that would generate at least a 100 meter radius explosion at sea level on Earth from nuclear binding energy;
(iv) State of war as the period following the declaration of war in retaliation against attacks by other nations,

HEREBY

MANDATES that no WA member states place any nuclear weapons in any area of space, unless they are in a state of war and have reasonable evidence to suggest that said nation possesses nuclear weapons;

FURTHER MANDATES that no WA member states place any chemical weapons in any area of space;

REQUIRES that nations dismantle or move out of space any nuclear weapons they have placed in space after they have left a state of war or when there is no longer a material nuclear threat from the nation they are at war with, whichever is earlier;

CLARIFYING that "Space" as defined by this resolution extends beyond the orbit of modern orbital weapons, and as such current orbital weapons are not affected by this resolution;

ENCOURAGES nations to further limit the use of weapons in space;

FURTHER ENCOURAGES nations to use space and related technology for the single purpose of benefiting all sapient species, not solely their nation or region;

ESTABLISHES the Space Disarmament Committee (SDC) with the following duties:

a) To send officials to all nations to ensure compliance with the terms of this resolution,
b) To classify chemical and nuclear weapons as such in order to prevent abuse;

REQUIRES that all member states comply with the officials sent by the SDC;

MANDATES that nations take measures to ensure that private entities comply with the terms of this resolution.

This Space Disarmament Committee seems pretty superfluous.

Against - who enforces this if no one has military capacity for space?

Klingons?

More seriously, this creates and then mandates the authority for the Space Police - who watches them?

Oh yeah, the Klingons...

Hmm... a race of omnipotent, incorporeal beings. They follow their own self-restraining rule of noninvolvement, except when they see something they don't like. They disguise theirselves as completely harmless and powerless, and in the next moment, they completely shut down the main fleets of the two then most powerful civilizations of the quadrant. Oh, not to forget, they browbeat these arch enemies into entering a treaty within hours, after which they return to their beloved century-long discussions in the Organian Council of Elders, as if nothing happened. I can't help it, but the Organians look to me like a bunch of Founders :P
