Allright boys and girls. Im going to donate 500 of my ATS points (assuming its possible) to whomever first answers these "historical" questions correctly, first.
READY?

Let us leap fully in to the world of DENYING IGNORANCE!

1. Who is the only country EVER to be convicted in the world court and condemned for international terrorism???

2. For what actions were they condemned???

3. What was the result of the world body's judgement within the UN security council and why???

4. In what main avenues and outlets of the media was this publicized???

5. What was the 'Contructive Engagment' policy regarding the African continent in the 1980's, who created it and what were the consequences???

and finally....

6. Why, according to Lao Tse, is "authority an illusion in the mind of govenors"???


Now I know that we all know how to use the search option on Google...but what I'm looking for is an honest test of your knowledge, not your internet ability. So you're all on the "honor" system...whatever that means.


*In the event that I am unable to donate points you'll just have to accept my profound amazement at your incredible brain!!!

And we have a winner!!!!

SUPERNOVA is ...well...SUPER!!!

Thats right kids. The only country to be CONVICTED by an international court of terrorist acts was the United States, 1985-1986, for their illegal war against the soveriegn nation of Nicaragua. Nicaragua took the correct legal actions and brought the case to the UN's general assembly. After presenting evidence and having a trial, the United States was found guilty of illegal terrorist actions. The only two countries that voted against this judgement were Isreal (!) and Micronesia.
The UN general assembly moved for a condemnation from the Security Council to STOP the illegal war. Knowing that they were no match for the United States weight and power they instead drafted a resolution, "calling for all nations to respect and abide by international law." All of the security nations voted for this except for one.
Guess
which
one?
Thats right...the beacon of democracy and freedom for the world, the grand US of A. Actually Great Britian abstained from that vote.
I have to apologize for question (4). Its a trick question...there wasn't any domestic coverage of the proceedings, judgements or aftermath. When it was finally leaked by the European press the US congress was forced to do something about it. They drafed legislation telling the Reagan/Bush 1 administration to stop the illegal war saying it violated international AND domestic law. How did the administration react??? They increased money and weapons expenditures designed to overthrow the Nicarguan government while resorting to more subtle means to accomplish.
This little game employed a few actors you might might find surprising. Bush One, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Powell, Oliver North, Paul wolfowitz and Saddam Hussein!!!
Isn't it great to see them back on the stage again folks?!!
This was called the Iran/Contra scandal and gets minimal reflection by the main stream press.
Question 5 was in fact the Reagan/Bush One policy for dealing with African countries...specifically South Africa. It was designed to creat instability in countries that might be unfavorable to American corporate business interests...as well as countries that had a nice supple of oil. In fact, at its summation it created one of the best quotes by one of the former/returned actors on the world stage, Dick Cheney. When asked, at the height of the anti-aparteid movement, what he thought about Nelson Mandela, he replied, "Nelson Mandela is one of the most horrific terrorists in the world. He and his ANC (African National Congress) are a threat to freedom in South Africa....the worst possible scenario would be to have his message spread to the surrounding countries...".
(Nice, huh?) I mean, the man only freed his people and won the Nobel peace prize. Some consider him to be the South African version of George Washington. I wonder what Dick Cheney would have thought of Washington and his bunch of troublemakers.

Number 6...hmmm...I think answers itself. All of the reponses to that question are correct and I for one am IMPRESSED with what you guys came up.


Keeping thinking for yourselves...you're absolutely free.

Supernova, I'll look into the points transfer...nice job.


*its believed that up to 100.000 people died because of U.S actions in Nicargua from 1975 to 1991....that's a whole bunch of crumbling Twin Towers eh guys?

OMG I KNEW it was the US!!!! i barely remember that news item I saw on BBC 2 years ago. It was on their website in some article about the history of the ICC in The Hague. auggh, I should have known...

but still, congrats supernova on your victory.

but, hey hey, at least I got numero 5 right when nobody else did. It was the Reagan administration, after all.

cool test, my man. looks like I sabotaged myself when I presumed the test was following only one incident and I apologize for complaining that the test was limited.
