THE MISSION

You are the President of Haddar. Answer the following questions in order to avoid nuclear warfare and save your country and the world, or....force the end of the world.

Nuclear Escape ChallengeUse the 4 principles of international humanitarian law (the rules of war) to escape & avoid nuclear war:1. Distinction: must distinguish between civilians & combatants; civilian objects & military targets2. Proportionality: prohibits military attacks that would cause greater damage to civilians than the expected military advantage3. Avoidance of unnecessary suffering: no chemical/bio/nuclear weapons, no starvation/water deprivation, burning of crops, etc.4. Military necessity: permits necessary measures to achieve legitimate military objectives

THE base

Find the clue you need to keep moving forward

On the front line, 15 soldiers of the Deldarian army-pursued by one of our battalions - have hidden in a Deldarian village in which 1,000 civilians (including women, children and elderly people) are living. The battalion does not have enough soldiers to take over the village house by house. However, it does have enough guns and mortars to bomb and destroy the village.Question: Is our battalion permitted to use heavy artillery to dislodge the enemy soldiers from the village?

No

Yes

QUESTION 1

THE base

Find the clue you need to keep moving forward

No

Yes, that would make them even!

Maybe but I would feel bad

The Haddarian army has received information that the enemy is torturing our captured soldiers and subjecting them to medical experiments. One of our own POW camp commanders suggests doing the same to the Deldarian prisoners, both in revenge and to pressure the enemy into ceasing these abuses.Question: Is our camp commander allowed to do this?

QUESTION 2

the base

Find the clue you need to keep moving forward

No, they are civilians!

Yes; despite being civilians, the action is justifiable since the station was calling for ethinc cleansing

If they do it when no one is there, yes! If not, no!

The Deldarian national television network broadcasts propaganda inciting its inhabitants to persecute the Haddarian minority that lives on their territory. It encourages Deldarians to burn Haddarian houses, terrorize them and cause them to flee. Actions of this kind are called "ethnic cleansing."Question: Can our army destroy this television station ?

QUESTION 3

Only the commanding officer

Only the soldiers

The sergeant

The lieutenant, the sergeant, and the soldiers

One of our patrols seized a village in the belief they would find combatants there. Not a single shot was fired at them, but the sergeant still gave the order to fire upon theinhabitants. The soldiers obeyed and killed everyone. The lieutenant, higher-ranking but younger and less experienced than the sergeant, did nothing.Who is responsible?

QUESTION 4

No, the use of nuclear warfare would not be able to have disntiction and will cause unnecessary suffering

Yes, the end of the war and the prevention of further suffering is more important

Maybe the citizens will be ok with the nuclear warfare

Yes, I hate the Daddarians and they deserve it

The Daddarian Army has been using excessive force on our country, killing civilians and military personal. They are refusing to cease fire or surrender. Would it be justifiable for our army to resort to nuclear warfare to force the end of the war?
