It is interesting. While I agree with the existence of the world-wide government correspondence that is the United Nations, it does have the unfortunate condition of creating massive lists of allies for a member nation. Even war against terrorist organizations and insurgencies have ripple effects throughout the world. Lest the members of the UN unanimously agree to stay out of a war between two powerful member-states, it would quickly result in worldwide conflict. A probable reason for one of many regarding the delicate nature of Crimea as well as Taiwan.
