Debate:Can a rogue nation be thought of as a sovereign nation?
Sovereign being a nation able to choose its own destiny without other nations interfering. Can the same be said of rogue nations? Is a rogue nation sovereign? If a nation will not abide by or violates international laws, does it loose sovereignty? I believe it does. Rogue nation says it doesn't respect the will of international laws then why should that same law protect rogue nations sovereignty. The case is made that Iran is a sovereign nation but it is the worlds leading sponsor of terror and finances illegal proxy armies.--jp 22:46, 20 April 2007 (EDT)
It all depends on what the major powers in United Nations security council think of the situation, they can take action or veto against action, in the case of Iran, Russia still protects them in the security council.
Therefore, some nations who have the right allies can violate international laws where others would be punished, any one of the 5 permanent members of the security council can veto proposed resolutions against their allies.
