    Maybe international observers from a neutral party can assuage fears from these nations.

    The problem is that nations like Germany and Brazil see it as not a means of preventing a war but of limiting their ability to meet future threats as technology is changing. Then one has Argentina which fears domination by Brazil in South America and if they will not join (Brazil) then Argentina wants no part of it. Nations like Sweden and Switzerland lack an ability to allay the fears of some nations. Thus Austria is left trying to find an answer to this.
    Latin America seems to be dominated , at least in the southern part by 3 Countries Neuva Granada, Empire of Brazil and Argentina. To the North there is the Central American Republic that seems to be holding together and Mexico. Mexico is recovering from the years of its dictator period which lead to a clash with the United States and eventual intervention By Spain and Neuva Granada. Since then there has been stability and Mexico has broken its seemingly endless slide toward strong men.
    Spain finally in 1918 granted independence to Cuba and Puerto Rico thus ending its colonial empire.

    Then the admittedly imperfect solution is: diplomacy; international organizations in parallel with military/economic alliances; economic development which strengthens the middle classes and nudges toward greater democracy. However this requires a very long time (some countries are at a worse starting position), and it is likely there will be conflicts before this takes effect.

    The end of the effects of the Fall should allow development to resume at a more normal rate.

    Brazil's Foreign Ministry was consulting with Britain, Hawaii and the United States on Arms control positions. It was also talking with Neuva Granada and Chile regarding Naval arms. Both Neuva Granada and Chile agreed to regional limits to prevent an arms race. They also agreed to limiting arms sals to Bolivia, Peru and Paraguay. The only problem that the three countries could see was Argentina who refused to make an agreement.
