International Broken Window theory

It is time to scale up to the international level.

"Republican Mayor Giuliani adopted this strategy in New York City. He had the police strictly enforce the law against subway fare evasion and stopped (some say persecuted) the "squeegee men" who had been wiping windshields of stopped cars and demanding payment.

Rates of more serious crimes fell significantly.
New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer is also a prominent adherent of Broken Window Theory, especially in the context of white collar crime."

Countires that perpetuate small crimes need to be punished while they are small crimes. This will stop small rouge countires from becoming big rouge countires and also stop the the growth of rouge countires. This will prevent new problems from arising, so we can starting coming up with individual soultions for rouge countries we currently have.
