1 From: Brazil Subject: Measures to Deter and Prevent Cyberwarfare Recalling the various damaging and costly cyber-attacks launched against nations and organizations in the past, Recognizing the destructive capabilities of individuals to inflict mass chaos and property damage via cyber-warfare, with some cases reporting up to 1.2 billion dollars stolen by a single person, Alarmed by previous attacks of cyber-warfare that crippled nations infrastructures by shutting down power plants with viruses, freezing and/or disrupting a nations electronic banking, stopping airline flights, and in cases such as the Stuxnet virus attacks, setting a nations technological advancement back months or years, Noting with concern that over 12 billion dollars are estimated to have been wasted annually due to computer viruses, Condemning the infamous Titan Rain cyber-attacks and the Russian cyber-offensive directed against Estonia in May 2007, and seeking to prevent such incidents from occurring again, 1. Calls for the formation of the United Nations Cyber-warfare Prevention Division (UNCPD), an organization designed and equipped to counter, trace, and prevent cyberwarfare in all of its forms: a. Requests that this organization be composed of cyber-warfare, programming, and computer specialists of all nations to reflect the needs and technological abilities of all Member States, b. Urges the UNCPD develop antivirus and firewall software to protect against cyber-warfare, as well as to investigate cyber-attacks to determine the source of the attacks and the full extent of damage, c. Recommends that this antivirus software be distributed to all states to prevent internal crises as well as external cyber-attacks, d. Asks that all Member States contribute technology and intelligence on the subject of cyber- warfare in order to best prevent costly cyber-attacks in the future and to save money internally by reducing problems caused by viruses such as Trojans or malware; 2. Demands that all nations found by the UNCPD to be guilty of launching, approving, or condoning a cyber-attack against a state, corporation, or fellow nation be tried at the Hague and those convicted be detained in the United Nations Detention Facility (UNDF);

2 3. Additionally demands that all states that refuse to pay for damages they have caused be sanctioned in violation of the United Nation Appointed Right to the Internet; 4. Urges nations to donate % of their Gross Domestic Product to UNCPD in order to fund research and to counter cyber-warfare measures, and consider further donations to help provide defenses to all Member States; 5. Requests that all nations take into full consideration the uncontrollable nature of a cyber- attack, especially in the form of a virus, once launched, with such attacks being compared to biological weapons of mass destruction in terms of unpredictability and collateral damage, and then decide to what extent they must further their own cyberwarfare projects or divisions; 6. Strongly supports nations enacting laws against the development of viruses, the act of hacking, or any form of cyber-warfare; 7. Promotes the study of further online firewall and protective research without developing harmful or malicious software, such as the Stuxnet virus which is intended to cripple another state, in order to advance technology for both a single state and the United Nations as a whole; 8. Calls attention to the danger and catastrophic effects of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and urges nations to stop development of EMP weaponry in order to prevent massive damage to resources, 9. Recognizing the dangerous and widespread nature of an EMP, causing a massive shutdown of electronics in a wide radius, and the inherent damages to infrastructure and chaos that would ensue as the result of using such a device, 10. Promoting research of technologies such as the Faraday cage device that would help lessen EMP damage or fully nullify the effects of an EMP attack, and encouraging nations to contribute such research to the UNCPD, 11. Urging nations to take the threats of EMPs with caution and strongly consider the development of said weaponry, given their destructive potential and the similarities between EMP weaponry and nuclear weaponry.

3 From: Mexico Subject: Drug Lords and Drug Cartels Alarmed by the escalating number of victims caused by the ongoing drug war in Mexico, which has reached a staggering 60,420 casualties to date, Deeply disturbed by the number of Mexican citizens displaced from their homes due to this conflict, which has risen to an overwhelming 1.6 million, Noting with regret the evolution in terrorist tactics and military prowess of the Mexican drug cartels, Reaffirming Mexico s commitment to finding effective and long lasting solutions to this armed conflict, Acknowledging that the reach of the Drug Cartels and the Drug Wars inevitably tied to them extends far beyond their respective countries of origin, Recognizing that the very nature of Drug Cartels impedes the fair trialing of Drug Lords within the nations in which they operate, Fully believing that concerted international cooperation is the only definitive way to eradicate drug cartels, 1 Requesting the creation of an international court tasked exclusively with the trialing and punishing of Drug Lords;

4 2 Further request that this court determine what constitutes a drug lord and the characteristics that distinguish such from common criminals; 3 Designates this court determine punishments befitting the nature of the crimes committed, respecting the rules of the United nations; 4 Further request that drug lords be voluntarily submitted by the nations in which they are captured; 5 Resolves that this court to be formed by a rotating panel of judges elected by the General Assembly of the United Nations, and consisting of members of different countries; 6 Demands an official declaration of the major Drug Cartels from Mexico and other nations as terrorist organizations and to officially condemn their actions within the concept of genocide; 7 Recommends the creation of a junction of nations affected by drug cartels, with the purpose of sharing intelligence, military tactics and cooperation; 8 Endorses the creation of an international prison, away from internal corruptions and outside of the individual legal systems of their nations, aimed at holding Drug Lords accused of Crimes Against Humanity and that: a. This prison to be supervised by a commission of officials elected by the U.N. and comprised of members from different nations, b. This prison to adhere to all laws and regulations established by the United Nations; 9 Further requests the creation of a legal document outlining the powers and responsibilities from said prison.

5 From: Syria Subject: Uprising Support Recognizing the danger that violent citizens in the streets of Damascus and elsewhere present to the people of Syria, and that there will be no end to the demonstrations if they are allowed to run their course, Expecting the removal of Bashar al-assad will not quell violent demonstrations, but rather will create a state of anarchy, as the demonstrators do not exhibit organization and cannot adequately govern a nation, Alarmed by the attempts of the General Assembly to infringe upon the sovereignty of Syria by changing the leadership of Syria from elected President to a handpicked leader, Realizing the violence cannot stop without strong leadership and the rebellious demonstrators cannot provide strong leadership from themselves, let alone Syria, Noting Basha al-assad is a strong leader who has seen Syria s sovereignty and through many hardships, and is capable of restoring stability to Syria, Confident the General Assembly will recognize Syria s sovereignty and ability to govern itself by refraining from taking any action which would result in the change of leadership from Basha al-assad to any other person, Seeking a way to restore stability to Syria through strong leadership and the end of violent demonstrations in the streets of our cities, 1.

Calls upon United Nations member states to recognize Iranian sovereignty with respect to its nuclear program; 4. Proclaims that Iran will continue to pursue current nuclear program as is.

9 From: Yemen Subject: Al Qaeda in Yemen Recognizing that the previous government in Yemen was responsible for conditions that allowed foreign terrorist groups to establish themselves in Yemen, Deeply concerned by the knowledge that many of the perpetrators of recent attempted terrorist attacks received training in Al Qaeda camps in Yemen, Further recognizing the desire of the United States to carry out preemptive strikes against known terrorists to protect its citizens, Believing that if future counter insurgency efforts in Yemen are to be a lasting success, a working relationship between the American and Yemeni militaries, 1. Requests that the US military cease further drone strikes on targets in Yemen, and that any future missions are launched only after consulting with the Yemen military and are undertaken with surgical precision, making every effort to prevent civilian casualties; 2. Further requests that the US military provide advisors to facilitate cooperation with the Yemeni armed forces and to assist in better training its personnel to conduct COIN operations; 3. Expresses its hope that long term cooperation between the United States and Yemen will lead to greater stability in the Arabian Peninsula and increased safety worldwide.

10 From: Libya Subject: Security of Missing Weapons Remembering the events culminating in the event known as the Arab Spring, Noting that a new democratic government has been formed under the National Transitional Council (NTC) in Libya, Recalling that the revolution fought between loyalist and rebel forces was sporadic and chaotic throughout the full span of the Civil War, Acknowledging that during the confrontation various strategic locations, such as ammo depositories and military installations, came under control of different groups and forces, Noticing that previous weapon stores have been emptied out and have gone missing, with some Libyan weapons being found as far as the Gaza Strip, Urging that the United Nations continue to assist Libya in controlling this sudden vacuum and outflow of weapons, Calls For: 1. Requests that the United Nation ask NATO to assist the new Libyan government in accounting for and recovering the former weapons of Gaddafi s oppressive military regime; 2. Encourages the United Nations and other forces help remove these weapons from other parts of the world and return them to Libya or dismantle them; 3.

Would support the creation of a treaty that states that all countries must obtain their nuclear power from one secure source, and must pledge to use the nuclear power for peaceful purposes only, b. Would support a proposal commending the Republic of Iran for its steadfast pursuit of nuclear energy for exclusively peaceful

12 From: (If this is your resolution please us) Subject: Deweaponization of Outer-Space Recognizing that the frontier of space is open to exploration by all nations of the world so long as the developments and actions are of peaceful intent, Emphasizing the obligation of all nations to abide by the provisions of the United Nations Charter regarding the use or threat of violence involving international relations not excluding those in outer space, Fully Aware of the negative and enduring affects an arms race in outer space as a new medium for international conflict, Noting with deep concern that such an arms race would exasperate current political tensions and would lead to the possibility of opening outer space as a new mediums for international conflict, Recognizing that some countries with advanced space capabilities are considering the possibility of developing space-based weapons platforms, Taking note that these countries have already furthered the militarization of space by the implementation of reconnaissance satellites, Convinced that through further measures a greater transparency from all nations will facilitate continued international peace, 1.
