“Let's Get Ready to Rumble”
It has long been my opinion that countries need an alternative method to resolve conflict. Holding the threat of nuclear war over an enemy threatens the entire world, not just the antagonist.
I propose that the Leaders of the World, e.g., Israel and Iran, India and Pakistan, don their boxing gloves and go at each other for 12 rounds. "Let's get ready to rumble" echoes throughout the television world. Everyone can watch these two leaders jab and swing at each other via satellite. Winner take all.
If the World Court holds them directly accountable, would world leaders be as quick to vent open accusations at other leaders, or to initiate border disturbances, or to hold political prisoners, or to give asylum to terrorists, etc. I can just imagine how it would work ....
"Okay, this week President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will defend his title against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, since the 2 leaders just can’t seem to work and play well together. They'll go 12 rounds with a standing eight-count in effect, and you can't be saved by the bell in any round."
I wonder ... would nations start to get along better?
