sanations are used by the U.N. on nations around the world who threathen the peace of the world using the cooperation of U.N. members
why would the U.N. apply sanctions to a state like Texas, which poses no threat and if the u.s. were to go it alone it would look like an act of war according to madison.
James Madison - Mr. MADISON, observed that the more he reflected on the use of force, the more he doubted the practicability, the justice and the efficacy of it when applied to people collectively and not individually. - A union of the States containing such an ingredient seemed to provide for its own destruction. The use of force agst. a State, would look more like a declaration of war, than an infliction of punishment, and would probably be considered by the party attacked as a dissolution of all previous compacts by which it might be bound.
