The 10th Man Council: Against All Odds. Against All Enemies
Crisis is a council that has become a trademark from President Model United Nations. Crisis council operates differently, compared to the other councils in MUN as it could flare a hostile situation anytime. Although to deal with crisis situation is not pleasant as it is in real life, but the joy and the excitement cannot be denied either. This year, this council will bring the delegates into an alternate universe where the scope of the crisis does not involve only military aspect but also politics, economy, social and environmental ones. Thus, “to be understood immediately, behave accordingly.”
"The 10th Man Council: Against All Odds. Against All Enemies"
Chinese supremacy is no longer a myth, it is a reality. Chinese military posts are located almost everywhere in Asia. Belt Road Initiative is an on-going program supervised by the United Nations (UN) and the Chinese government. An era where there is only one superpower, an era where their own existence is challenged by another superpower: the United States. Propagandas, battles, and accusations have colored the relationship between U.S and China in the past 60 years. Many have suggested that both parties should arrange a peace talk. But when the national interest is at stake, it seems no one would make a deal nor bargain. An attempt for invasion from the US was reported but many have said that the government of China should react peacefully. With their military prowess and their status as a superpower state, many have suggested China not to react with an aggressive attitude. But when survival is at stake, would you like to talk your way out or pick a gun instead?
