The Pact of Paris

There was no Nobel Peace Prize handed out in 1928 which is ironic as that was the year that the World powers decided to make war illegal.
The Pact of Paris was a 1928 international agreement in which signatory states promised not to use war to resolve disputes or conflicts and was initially signed by Germany, France and the United States and then most other nations of the World soon after including  Britain, Italy, Japan, Austria, China and the Soviet Union.
What an inspired and beautiful notion. Wonder how it got on?

I'm sure there was a great signing ceremony. I've heard that it's a bit problem with international organizations and folks doing "good deeds" in general. They always like the ribbon cutting or the signing ceremony, but they never want to pay for maintenance and upkeep.
