As the General Assembly commences once more, news of utmost importance has been put forward by the council. Germany, Japan, and the Soviet Union have officially formed an alliance. The Soviet Union has been found to be supplying Japan with nuclear weapons and Japan's agenda of nuclear war now moves into its final stages of preparation. Because of this, tensions now stand at an all-time high.

The delegate of the United States proclaimed that as of this stage, Hitler, the figurehead of this new problem, must be extirpated and brought to justice immediately. He goes on to explain that Hitler must be arrested and put to trial by the Interpol because this will greatly reduce the threat that Germany will pose. The delegate of the United States stands firm in his stance that Hitler must be charged with war crimes.

However, this suggestion was quick to be denounced by other delegates such as the delegate of Australia. The delegate of Australia elucidated that if Hitler were to be incarcerated in any way, there would be a remarkably high increase of tensions and the tensions will be further escalated even higher. There would also be no guarantee as to whether the Soviet Union or Japan would take action to attack the United Nations upon the incarceration of Hitler.

The discussion on the status of Hitler ended with two different perspectives, one supporting the incarceration of Hitler and the other favoring negotiations in order to not increase or elevate more tensions.

The next discussion being put forward would be whether to comply with Germany, Japan, and The Soviet Union’s demands. There was a risk of starting nuclear warfare if their demands were not complied with.

Regarding this, most delegates did not support the reunification of Germany. They instead supported the decision of not complying with the demands made by the Soviet alliance with Germany and Japan.

A minority of the delegates, such as the delegate of Greece accepted reunification but saw it fit that the council continued further negotiations concerning the matter of war operations. The delegate of Argentina fully supported Germany and its allies in all of this, and pilloried the United States, claiming that they were in the wrong for dropping atomic bombs on Japan. The delegate even went as far as to appeal to all other delegates in an effort to oppose the United States and support Hitler.

The delegate of the United States, supported by the delegate of the United Kingdom thought that there was no need at all to give in to Hitler, Japan, and the Soviet Union's demands. They convicted that there was a high likelihood of defeating the Soviet Alliance with Hitler and Japan, and enforced that Hitler should still be deemed a war criminal and that nobody should give in to the unreasonable demands made by Hitler.

The General Assembly ended with no solution proposed. There was not a consensus that could be finalized in time, which ultimately led to what could be described as the Third World War. Countries attacked each other using nuclear weaponry, resulting in mass chaos and destruction all over the world. The General Assembly had failed to propose an adequate solution to the problem in time, and the nuclear war had begun as a result of that.
