The first comment to say "xcom" is going straight to jail!
Oof... If I'll ever have another idea of making a scene that includes a lot of characters that I can' just draw as a featureless crowd, please bust in my knee for that, okay? T_T
See you all in the next year!
Don't look at me...but I might know a Major already well informed on the matter who would be a better choice than any of the idiot diplomats we've seen so far. Mind, my opinion on diplomats is based on after less than 5 minutes talking would I consider buying a used car or old donkey from them. The few I've met couldn't pass.
Fun fact: you've actually drawn too many people in the room. There should only be the 15 members of the Security Council in there. Why? Because this is a security matter and the Security Council are the ones with responsibility over that. The General Assembly (which has 193 members, so too few for this) should be told only after the Security Council has been briefed and come up with a basic plan. The General Assembly elects ten of the Security Council for two year terms (staggered so half of them take their seats each year), with each seat being from a geographic region. Which is why Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, an island nation with no military and a population of 100k, got to sit on the SC during 2020 and 2021.
I suppose that could be the Economic and Social Council, who have 54 members, but why they'd be briefed before the SC or General Assembly I have no idea.
Or rather than invite the politically correct "security council" that may include "Saint Vincent" island nation, they invited the most powerful/tech advanced countries of world whether part of security council or not, because they figured they couldn't keep it a secret from them anyways.
Eg Germany is more likely to be invited than Kenya, Niger, Tunisia, because their more advanced tech means they will find out anyways if not told. UN permanent members of security council were chosen by who won a war 70+ years ago, the losers of that war (Germany, Japan) are in similar league to winners like France and UK.
(Germany, Japan and similar countries have their own high tech spy satellites, and ability to listen in extra terrestrial broadcasts)
Skipping the official Security Council and arranging a meeting of your own handpicked shadow council would be incredibly difficult and unsecure. It'd be like paving a new road in order to get around a speed trap, and inviting the cop from the speed trap to test-drive it with you. Even the nations you invited would think you're acting suspicious.
Addressing the actual Security Council in a closed session, by contrast, is something that a nation can do through normal channels without raising too many eyebrows. It would be way more secure, and less of a logistical and diplomatic headache.
