    but it wouldn't seem to matter what the mechanism of imminent threat is, so far as I can remember.  (The point abotu all countries being responsible is a good one).

    I suspect rather than actually attacking, the request for a UN SC resolution authorizing the use of military force against the US and China by the Maldives would certainly be an interesting approach to raising the issue

    I suppose also, the could ask for some other SC resolution to prevent the destruction causing activities.

    This is of course more of a brainstorm session.

    •  MN - the UN? (0+ / 0-)

      The UN would pass a resolution authorizing military force against the US and China? What nations would sign up for that? Without the US the UN couldn't stop a cookie fight at a Brownie Scouts meeting. Never mind the fact that the US and China could veto any such lunacy.

      •  It isn't that they'd pass it (1+ / 0-)

        radical simplicity

        it's that Maldives petition would have to have a hearing.  Maybe a request for GA support.  It would make for good television and some good press reports.  At minimum, it would be a way to raise the issue once again to say in a public forum "America, j'accuse!"

        I guess on they other hand, I guess they can just slink away and die so we can drive SUVs.
