Same thing the UN will do, they will be very angry, they will be so angry they will send an angry letter telling how angry they are.

The UN is not meant to do things, its meant to be a forum for international politics.

It a joke from team America, it references they are totally useless to stop things like these and shouldn’t rely on the UN to help issues like these

Yar, read it in Hans "Bricks" (Blix)'s accent :P, but the in this context I just wanted to point out that the sentiment was a bit off, that's all.

A few things come to mind:

borderline ignore

conditional aid(bribe),


back opponents to regime(diplomatically, financially, militarily),

occupy (again...),

drone strikes,


assassinate someone important(I dunno if that would really halt them that much),

nuke(might be a bit of an overreaction)

Not a lot of those are appealing or effective, so the likely course of action is to just sort of let them be whilst nudging and teasing it where you can, and hope that the situation improves it self.

Diplomacy is a complex and nuanced art, of which I know very little, so I'm sure there are more nuanced ways for changing a country situation externally(if you want too).

Doesn’t conditional aid fail because they agree to terms and then the warlords just take resources and ignore promises until it’s time to rinse and repeat?

That's if you pay in one lump sum, the idea is that you give it over in installments depending if the requested conditions are met and maintained. I don't know the exact balance but sometimes aid is sort of meant as a bribe. You write it up to aid the people but in reality you fully expect the local leaders to embezzle it. Its just a hard pill to swallow for the people back home, however for international politics bribery is a legitimate and important diplomatic tool.
