President of the United States of America
Ladies and gentlemen of the United Nations,
Delegates from the world over,
People of Earth,
I come before you today not just as a head of State, but first and foremost as a Human being. Not only that, but also openly and proudly as a follower of the Christian faith, to which I have held closely as recent events have shaken past criteria and assumptions but also me as an individual to my very core, something that, despite all the jingoistic posturing still going on today, in truth is surely a feeling to which we can all relate.
I repeat here a sentiment I have begun expressing elsewhere already: whatever may now come, I firmly believe it is our duty, not as citizens or as soldiers but as members of the Human species, to come together in the quickest manner possible and put aside petty differences of ideology and greed, so that we may immediately set to the task of presenting a united Human response to the Aliens, one that will withstand any and all attempts to exploit our divisions to the detriment of human life, liberty and freedom.
What is going on in Argentina and what can the nations of this planet expect? Who, exactly, is this Posadas individual, who would shut off all communications out of his country and, presumably, closely cooperate with an Alien presence, that, while exciting and stimulating to Reason and imagination, it's important to remember that also engaged in an open threat to "sterilize" the planet within hours of making first contact? Is he merely a figurehead for extra-terrestrial designs, or has his ideology really driven him that far gone into wholeheartedly believing that the Aliens are desirable masters, without even bothering to attempt to prove this point to the rest of the species as of yet?
People of Earth, we are all Humans. Up until now our history has been the story of struggles between individuals, but now we are entering a stage wherein the main defining struggle is no longer man against nature or man against man, but Man in front of the great unexplored possibility of Alien life, and future historians (if Humanity does indeed have a future) will care little for the specific details of ongoing human wars. It is very likely that the first contact between Humanity and an Alien race will be in and of itself momentous enough to erase from human memory even the most disastrous of recent conflicts, and with them, the men who bitterly clung onto the old borders and ambitions, even as the great intergalactic maelstrom swept up everything into the ether.
Without further ado, I thus present to you the first draft of the first resolution that I will bring before this forum today. It is my deepest hope that the United Nations will step up to the challenge presented by the events in Argentina, and that we can move together from here on out all united, as brothers, as equals. As Humans.
My good men, it is imperative that we begin discussion of this resolution now. The very fate of the planet depends on it.Recognizing the urgent need to build lasting peace among Humans in the face of the probable Alien invasion,
Acknowledging the need for serious peace talks as an indispensable follow-up and second step to the contents of the present resolution,
Honoring the sacrifices made by UN personnel and volunteers from many faiths and political persuasions the world over in the pursuit of Peace,
Admitting full responsibility for the shameful exersice of lethal power up until the very recent past,
The member States of the United Nations hereby agree to order each and every unit of their armed forces to immediately stand down and stop all fighting against Human forces as part of an Emergency Global Ceasefire in the interest of the defense of the Human Race. The troops currently engaged in conflict are to enter completely defensive positions and, wherever possible, are to begin aiding the civilian population of their localities for the purposes of reconciliation which may help with the future building of peace. Furthermore, the members states agree to immediately cut off all aid to all parties in any armed conflict and to devote themselves to the degree of their capacities towards the entering and aiding of every peace process in Planet Earth from here on out to the concievable future.
