Question description


1000 WORDS 

We’ve read both sides of the issue of whether or not the United States is justified in conducting preemptive strikes. But really, this is about us making decisions for ourselves and justifying it (or not) to the rest of the world.

For this week’s assignment, you will need to take off your “American” hat and take a new job at the United Nations. Your job is to create a standard – a set of conditions if you will – under which any nation in the world may conduct a preemptive attack. What would those conditions be?

Use the cases you’ve read to write your conditions. They may be more or less strict than the conditions we’ve explored, but you may not argue that there are no conditions. You will need to also use the United Nations Charter to see exactly where your standards would fit.

The Charter can be found at

You should write this as an essay and not as a series of questions and answers. Do not use bullet points, and do not repeat the questions. Instead, write an essay that flows logically, integrating your answers throughout your essay
