"The bomb that destroyed the world before it was built." "The lion that squeaked."

A small, mostly-neutral country develops a desktop weapon that could kill off two-thirds of a world's population. A war breaks out over who will "protect" this innocent, peaceful nation/ who will protect the world from this wicked, power-hungry country, eventually killing off three-quarters of that world's population and literally wiping that country and its people off the map.

If I had the teaching experience, or any experience at all with a model U.N., I'd write this as a "fox in the henhouse" story of a model U.N. in high school. Were I in the Silver Age, I'd write this as a Just So Story of How the Asteroids Came to Be--- but we are wiser now and besides, archaeological narratives are quite done-to-death, unless you project them on the rocky screen of some terribly poignant love situation, which is done-to-death and artificial.
