I can't really give any more screenshots without giving away the awesomeness of the game itself. It only takes about 10 minutes to complete anyway.

Debates/Serious Discussions / Re: International sanctions
« Last post by The-PurpleOrange on Today at 01:10:35 AM »
The issue with sanctions is that for them to really work you need to stop importing items from the said country that will reduce their economy or stop exporting necessary items to them that they need to function. The problem here is that doing so will mean you will have to import the materials you need (such as oil) from somewhere else, probably for a higher price, and find a new market for the goods you were selling to the sanctioned country.

So whilst you will hurt the sanctioned country's economy, you will also hurt your own. This makes countries unwilling to commit to larger sanctions.

There were similar problems during the Abyssinia Crisis in 1935 where Italy invaded what is now modern-day Ethiopia. The League of Nations - which was an ineffectual predecessor to the UN - placed sanctions on Italy for the invasion and the use of mustard gas amongst other atrocities. Of course, once the Italians had completed their conquest of Abyssinian it was voted to stop sanctions by the majority of nations, presumably as they saw the option of continuing sanctions as just a way to damage their own economies.

My point here being that sanctions, for the most part, seem to only work to show that a international community is behind a certain country. But when it looks like they will have to be imposed for the long-haul people start looking at their wallets and thing of other important things they should be doing - preferably something of importance that will over-power any media stories about sanctions being dropped.

I wonder if we'll see a preview of the second game at the end of A Bird Story like the doctors standing in the old mans room or something like that :deepstuff:

Maybe something else that will be more interesting,
We can't limit the imagination, you know ;)

Politics and governments are getting more and more shady and sneaky... Also the things that are going on in the US it might seem there is a powder keg waiting to go off there... Meanwhile in Russia Putin is testing the waters to see where the boundaries are...

The nuclear scarecrow is there but it is a no go area. If any country resorts to using them they will turn the whole world against them allies or not.
