The mobilization of military force brings tensions to a boiling point. The UAE responds by mobilizing their own troops to the Musandam border, ostensibly to protect Emirati territory. The UAE condemns your actions as Omani aggression.
|Suggest the Sultan invades the UAE||Clearly they will not back down. It is best to act pre-emptively and gain a military edge.|
|Reach out to the UN||Request diplomatic interference and a commitment to militarily aid Oman in defense of its territory. Having already received commitments from the US and Iran, it can only help to get the general international community on your side as well.|
|Reach out to the US and Iran||Strengthen relations and elicit commitments that each will protect your territorial integrity from Emirati aggression.|
|Do nothing for the time being||Declare that the troops will remain stationed there until the UAE backs down from its territorial claims.|
|Suggest ceding the territory||It is only half of Musandam, you will retain some access to the Strait, and you will avoid any further confrontation with your wealthier, powerful neighbor.|
