Every nation sends 10k of their best equipped troops to Geneva,then disbands their armed forces.Every member nation(those who have 10k troops)then only contributes to the upkeep of their own forces and enough per-annum to supply the force with say 500 bombers and enough ordinance to carpet bomb any nation back to the stone age.

Sound kinda NWOish but that said.....
I think most countries will be able to afford the 10K of troops but maintaining a bomber force to carpet bomb any nation back to the stone age will be expensive.
Could you see some African countries who find to differcult to feed all their people affording the bomber fleet.
And who supplies the bomber fleet? The 1st world military complex?

um, carpet bombing is cruel and inhumane punishment of civilians for the acts of a military and government that they are not in complete control of (unless those nations are purely democratic, but we don't have any of those on this planet)

Who controls this?
Who decides when a border has been crossed? If there is illegal immigration across a border, does the immigrating nation get bombed? Into oblivion?
If rebels in one nation cross a border in a raid, does the capital that the rebels are fighting against get bombed? How is internal strife dealt with without an army anyway?
Indeed, couldn't the USA simply say 'anyone that tries to fight against us gets nuked into oblivion, whether its a terror attack or an overland invasion', instead of it being directed from geneva?
Also, what will carpet bombings accomplish? How would, for example, the threat of carpet bombing stop guerillas in vietnam or afghanistan?
