WAAF Reform Act / WA-Department of Defense Act
Written by United States of Europe - WA-Democratic Socialist Party

Introduction & Preamble

Honourables Colleagues,
Today I am here to continue the discussion of the reform of major regional organizations, which, if you remember, it started with the establishment of WA-DSJ (WA-Department of Security & Justice). The latter has intervened several times around the region, from his very first deployment in Farshonia up to operations in Ceveztria, through actions in support to Eurussia during the natural disaster. The reform has created a lean organization, efficient, flexible and well prepared for any kind of scenario, and we can say that it has been successful.
But the reform process is still long, and we are here today to continue the path, with the reform of the WAAF (World Alliance Armed Forces). An organization at the forefront of peace and international stability, which has uprooted dangerous terrorist organizations, which resolved civil conflict, which has prevented wars and acts of imperialism, which has protected the people from all over the world.
But today, the growing internationalization of diplomatic conflicts, new threats of terrorism, wars more and more asymmetrical, and the disagreements between the various member countries, make it more urgent than ever for radical reform. A reform which makes the most efficient and fast bureaucracy, which would determine the institutional structures and strengthen and improve the organization of the military forces, both at central and local levels.
And accordingly this is ambitious reform project of the WAAF.

However, military and operative forces of the WA-Department of Defense shall be managed by the structures of the organization itself. So will the WA-Department of Defense to carry out the tasks of maintenance, training, supply, organization, deployment, and so on. The operative forces,of course,must be used exclusively for the purposes of the organization.
The individual nations will not unduly influence the management of the military, if not through democratic means provided by the General Assembly.

The military and operative forces of the WA-Department of Defense will be known as WA-Armed Forces.
The WA-Armed Forces have their vehicles and equipment, constantly upgraded, and replaced periodically. From the point of view of infrastructure, they have bases,airpots,ports,logistics centers and training centers, provided by member countries, provided solely for their own purposes. These military units will then be chosen from among the best equipped,prepared,skilled and trained units.
Article 2 / Army Forces
The common ground military unit of the WA-Department of Defense is structured as follows:
-Squad - 9 to 10 soldiers. Typically commanded by a sergeant or staff sergeant, a squad or section is the smallest element in the ground forces structure, and its size is dependent on its function.
-Platoon - 16 to 44 soldiers. A platoon is led by a lieutenant, and consists of two to four squads.

These units must have adequate logistical support, and will need to have ports and bases for maintenance, training, and stationing, in order to be autonomous and independent. The units must be specialized for each type of task, and then have all the specialties required (landing forces, surface forces, submarine forces etc.).
In any WA-Continental Fleets should be at least one aircraft carrier with its naval squadron,for support and combat operations. Such units will be known as WA-Carrier Strike Squadron.

Article 4 / Air Forces

The operative forces,of course,must be used exclusively for the purposes of the organization.
The individual nations will not unduly influence the management of the military, if not through democratic means provided by the General Assembly.

The military and operative forces of the WA-Department of Defense will be known as WA-Armed Forces.
The WA-Armed Forces have their vehicles and equipment, constantly upgraded, and replaced periodically. From the point of view of infrastructure, they have bases,airpots,ports,logistics centers and training centers, provided by member countries, provided solely for their own purposes. These military units will then be chosen from among the best equipped,prepared,skilled and trained units.
Article 2 / Army Forces
The common ground military unit of the WA-Department of Defense is structured as follows:
-Squad - 9 to 10 soldiers. Typically commanded by a sergeant or staff sergeant, a squad or section is the smallest element in the ground forces structure, and its size is dependent on its function.
-Platoon - 16 to 44 soldiers. A platoon is led by a lieutenant, and consists of two to four squads.
-Company - 62 to 190 soldiers. Three to five platoons form a company, which is commanded by a captain with a first sergeant as the commander's principle assistant.
-Battalion - 300 to 1,000 soldiers. Four to six companies make up a battalion, which is normally commanded by a lieutenant colonel with a command sergeant major as principle assistant. A battalion is capable of independent operations of limited duration and scope.
-Brigade - 3,000 to 5,000 solders. A brigade headquarters commands the tactical operation of two to five organic or attached combat battalions. Normally commanded by a colonel with a command sergeant major as senior, brigades are employed on independent or semi-independent operations.
-Division - 10,000 to 15,000 soldiers. Usually consisting of three brigade-sized elements and commanded by a major general, divisions are numbered and assigned missions based on their structures. The division performs major tactical operations for the corps and can conduct sustained battles and engagements.
-Corps - 20,000 to 45,000 soldiers. Two to five divisions constitute a corps, which is typically commanded by a lieutenant general. As the deployable level of command required to synchronize and sustain combat operations, the corps provides the framework for multi-national operations.
-Field Army - 50,000 + soliders. Typically commanded by a lieutenant general or higher, an army combines two or more corps. A theater army is the ranking ground forces component in a unified command, and it has operational and support responsibilities that are assigned by the theater commander in chief.

As for the territorial arrangement, in each Continental Command must have at least one Field Army (the unit are also know as WA-Continental Field Army). The unit must be specialized for each type of intervention, and hence contain any kind of military specialty (infantry, landing forces, airborne forces, armored cavalry, artillery, tanks, helicopters, etc..). The unit must also have logistical support forces,military genius,forces for the administration and supply, in order to be always autonomous and independent.

Article 3 / Navy Forces
The common structure of the naval forces of the organization will be the Numbered Fleet. These structures are highly flexible, equipped with both standardized commands, or surface teams, landing teams, underwater teams, logistics teams, but they will also be set up ad hoc Task Force, for the most varied tasks.

As for the territorial arrangement, must be present at least one Numbered Fleet in each Continental Command (the units will also be known as WA-Continental Fleets).
These units must have adequate logistical support, and will need to have ports and bases for maintenance, training, and stationing, in order to be autonomous and independent. The units must be specialized for each type of task, and then have all the specialties required (landing forces, surface forces, submarine forces etc.).
In any WA-Continental Fleets should be at least one aircraft carrier with its naval squadron,for support and combat operations. Such units will be known as WA-Carrier Strike Squadron.

Article 4 / Air Forces
The common air military unit of the WA-Department of Defense is structured as follows:
-Squadron - A squadron is mainly a unit comprising a number of military aircraft and their flight crews, usually of the same type, typically with 12 to 24 aircraft. Land based squadrons equipped with heavier type aircraft such as long-range bombers, or cargo aircraft, or air refueling tankers have around 12 aircraft as a typical authorization, while most fighter equipped units have an authorized number of 18 to 24.
- Wing - A wing is normally the organizational tier below a Numbered Air Force,and sually comprises three squadrons. Most wings are commanded by a Colonel, but some are commanded by Brigadier Generals. Wings structured to fulfill a mission from a specific base, and contain a headquarters and four groups: an operations group, a maintenance group, a medical group and a mission support group.
- Numbered Air Force - A Numbered Air Force is a type of unit that is subordinate to a Continental Command and has assigned to it operational units such as wings and squadrons. This type of unit is a tactical organization with an operational focus, and are typically commanded by a major general or a lieutenant general.

As for the territorial structure, each Continental Command must be present in at least one Numbered Air Force (the units will also be known as WA-Continental Numbered Air Force).
These units must have adequate logistical support, and will need to have airports and bases for maintenance, training, and stationing, in order to be autonomous and independent. The units must be specialized for each type of task, and then have all the specialties required (fighters,drones,bombers,drone,tactical support aircrafts ecc..).

Section 4 / Additional provisions

Article 1 / Relations with the Regional Government
The WA-Department of Defense is a body entirely dependent on the WA-Council. It is therefore a governing body for all purposes, and therefore is the WA-Council to dictate the strategic guidelines.

The Council, by a simple majority vote, can replace the Secretary-General, or simply suspend or expel any member country.
The Council may also develop organizational directives (on various topics), which will be binding on both the Secretary and for the General Assembly (both can not oppose to the decision of the Council).
The Council may initiate international missions involving the organization, that it can not be rejected by the Secretary or by the General Assembly.

The WA-Court of Justice may also, in its judgments, use the organization as a means to enforce them. The Secretary or the General Assembly can't oppose to these decisions.

Article 2 / International Operations
The organization can undertake initiatives, programs and missions on an international scale, provided they are in line with its priorities and its principles.

International missions can be proposed and undertaken in a formal manner only by the Secretary General, at the initiative or on the advice of independent member countries and of the General Assembly. The Assembly may block these shares, through a majority vote. Also the WA-Council may also block these actions at any time, by a simple majority vote.

The WA-Council may initiate international action they see committed the organization, and in this case, the Secretary and the Assembly can not oppose in any way. Only the WA-Parliament (or the WA-Council itself) may block the actions of the WA-Council.

After starting, the international actions, as already mentioned, are under the control and management of the Command & Coordination Center, but under strict supervision of the Secretary and of the Assembly.

Article 3 / Mission Vision and Principles
The principles of the organization are unique and irreplaceable NEUTRALITY and DEMOCRACY.
The WA-Department of Defense aim to facilitate international military cooperation even where diplomatic relations do not exist between particular countries. Action is taken within the limits of existing international and local laws and in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Is prohibits ‘any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character'.

Article 5 / Transitional Provisions
As additional provision is expected to be repealed the previous regional law on the subject, the WA Armed Forces Act.

Well, having Europe proposed the reform. We are in trust with the intentions and goodwill of the proposal that upholds the spirit of the WA Constitution and the sovereignty of its member states.
Eurussia is in favour.

I was thinking about it too actually. Meaning votes in favor versus the votes against should suffice to determine the passage of a law. However, it defeats the purpose of having a 20 member state Parliament.

Possible further discussion about what defines the passage of a proposal or other legal matters would best be directed elsewhere from this thread for the time being.

Five votes have been submitted thus far, with about two days left in the voting session. The voting session shall end at 00:00 GMT on June 24, 2014.

Indeed. I was thinking of calling and requesting for a constitutional convention to amend that Article in the Constitution, as it is the only way to do so :-/
Or may be we could simply pass a law about it. I do believe that no one would challenge such law. I hope so.

If there are 6 vacancies, we have 14 seats. And am I right to say that half of fourteen is seven, thus the votes needed to qualify for a simple majority is 8. Correct?
So does this law really passed?
