So, as part of the timeline and the scenario posted here earlier, I am going to post this scenario for help. Side Effects of the First Extraplanetary War on Extraplanetary Policy Question In the scenario, the colonies have recently gained independence.
Fast forward 70 years later to 2466 CE, and we have a situation where the UN has given UNAPA full authority over the space forces of Earth and the governance of its remaining colonies, while the Asteroid Belt is basically a combination of Iraq War Era Iraq and Afghanistan (comparisons for our timeline), with the sole exception of the Union of Cererian States (the only sign of order in the region aside from UNAPA puppet regimes), the Trojans are a hub for black market operations, terrorist groups, crime syndicates and other illegal activities. Jupiter's Moons are contested between the Europan Confederation, and the People's Republic of Ganymede, while Io and Callisto are in a state of civil unrest and infighting. The Independent State of Titan has become the sole hegemon of Saturn's Moons, ans is home to the largest economy in the region after years of unrest and chaos. Then the Second Extrasolar War begins, and the conflict lasts for a decade. Now, the political issues are laid out.
The problem: that 7 years prior, the governments of the Outer Solar System begin a project to construct 5 large mass drivers with fusion drives (first generation, civilian grade Deuterium-Tritium ICF, that is) for course correction and backups in the Near Earth Object known as 1999 FN53, which is an actual asteroid that made a distant flyby last year, and this same asteroid is going to be redirected to slam into the Asia-Pacific Region. This is a last resort option, so do not expect it to be used until the end of the war, which is exactly what happens as the Outer Solar System fights a losing battle against UNAPA.
Assuming the asteroid is escorted to defend from the UNAPA Orbital Guard, and UNAPA's Space Force and Espatier Corps, and they are able to delay them long enough to have it slam into the Pacific Ocean (specifically, 2 km off the west coast of Guam, particularly Naval Base Guam (now the Guam Space Launch Complex), what political benefit would they [the governments of the Outer Solar System] have, assuming the damage is enough to force the UN to negotiate?
