#2 Ah! The Inspections Schedule and Demands Subroutine!

So if the logical conditions are not met in the subroutine, it kicks it out into the

UNSC Sanctions Subroutine, which threatens Serious Consequences™ if conditions are not met.

Once the UNSC Sanctions Subroutine is done, then it is kicked back to the the Inspections Schedule and Demands Subroutine, and so on, until.........

The Iranians build a Nuke and threaten it on Israel,
The Iranians use a Nuke and there is glass as far as the eye can see,
The good olde USA has to step in and kick some ass and get blamed for everything.

Hokay---I'm in.

Another good reason to add two additional active duty divisions and four to six reserve/guard divisions, plus supporting units and military air (transport/cas/attack/air superiority)
