    In the past the strong could conquer by force. There were no International laws, or organisations like the UN, or NATO. 

    Even so, some countries still occupy foreign lands. The UN does not always intervene.

    Because we created the United Nations to avoid such turmoil. Although it does still happen.

    Russia and China still do.

    You haven't been paying attention. Both China and Russia have annexed land in recent years
