@MikePerryavatar It's often worth the investment when it's forced upon you, like with Russia invading Ukraine. But so is a lot of stuff that just isn't as "adventurous." Eradicating hookworm in the American South took about 5 years and $1 million. It's a major prob in Africa today.
@Schmitt_ILaw 1971 GA China res. involved deciding between 2 govts claiming to represent entirety of the same territory - very different from Ukraine/Russia. Some legal experts question legality of 1974 GA decision re So. Africa as it blurs line between credentials & representation.
