DIPLOMACY?!?

It emerged recently that the United Dominion of Terranea had engaged in war as a first response to the nation of 'CS13'. The Alliance of Dignity had already began diplomatic proceedings and had not by any means exhausted their options.

The Nation of Terranea however decided that diplomacy was not the answer; and that war was going against the values of Dignity of which the nation is a member.

"While we understand the reasons for considering war - it is not the answer." Dignity today noted and it has now emerged that after numerous calls for a full retreat more troops have been deployed in CS13 by Terranea.

"This action simply goes against what Dignity stands for." the Dignity leadership explained, "We are a peaceful alliance. The political tool of war is used as a last resort -- not the first."

The Dignity leader has therefore taken action and expelled Terranea from the alliance while placing a small regiment of troops on CS13 to aid their defense.

This reporter has learned of rumors that the nation of Terranea, which is a dominion of a larger empire, seemed to look for an excuse to jump to war ignoring that diplomacy had not been given a chance to do its work.

This reporter notes that the alliance on previous occasions has avoided military operations as a result of diplomacy and has enjoyed success with this policy.

The alliance leader had commented that while the situation was regretful he did not regret his actions; "This situation poses a significant threat to peace. War will only escalate the need for CS13 to engage in atomic warfare in order to defend its national interests. I cannot voice my objections against this action enough."

As the situation continues this reporter will no doubt be providing complete coverage.



The Leader of the Dignity Alliance strode to the front of the podium, standing tall looking out across the around of press and reporters he looked as if he had something to clear up.

My friends, I will keep this short and to the point. Recently there has been some concerns with regard to the Atomic Weapons Policy that this great union has set upon its member nations.

Allow me to address these by informing you of an amendment to our Atomic Weaponry policy.

Under no circumstances will Dignity tolerate the use of Atomic Warfare.


He took a moment to allow his words emphasis, he raised his right hand quickly as he continued;

This is not propaganda, this is truth. For the sake of our union, our nations - our world. Thank you.

You can find a copy of the decree in your press packets, good day to you all."


Dignity Atomic Weaponry Policy Wrote:
The use of Atomic weaponry is prohibited for all member nations of Dignity. In the event that Atomic Weaponry is engaged by any member state she shall be immediately excluded from this union and will face the consequences of her actions.

Atomic warfare is no joke, it is severely damaging to our world and as such is a matter which is taken very seriously.

The full force of this alliance will be used to bring any and all member nations to justice in breach of this policy.

Hello there... my dear former ally-friends,

so think about it and i promise i will be a valuable ally-member for you allSmile

Intercepted Alliance Communication
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

This reporter has intercepted communications between the leader of the Dignity Alliance and Liberty Valance - the aggressive nation which now has an Empire of 11 nations - in which it was made clear according to one source "that enough is enough".

This comes after the empirical regent showed signs of improvement - jumping to the defense of a nation under attack... but shortly after dive bombed back to his aggressive ways.

The following was intercepted:

Liberty Valence Wrote:
I would suppose you watch the worldwide news before defending such aggressors: Forgrim attacked the state "Lausia" without ANY reason. I was able to defend the state of Lausia, and now you are going to stand on the wrong side ONCE AGAIN. Nono


Dignity Leader Wrote:
It is NOT about falling on either side of anything. Your defensive actions were honourable and just; your conquest however was not.

This is not about being on any side it is about the uncalled for aggression that you jump to before even exploring ANY diplomatic methods what so ever. You quickly dive on any opportunity to build your Empire and strike your regime upon a nation.

Such an empire - especially one which is so very very quick to jump to war - is a massive threat to the welfare of Dignity members and the worldwide community as a whole.

Take note. This is the final time I will be co-defending against any of your conquests.

Instead next time I find you attacking an enemy without first attempting to resolve the situation with diplomatic methods then I will be calling for Dignity to launch a conquest against your nations. Fair enough if you are attacked - you go right ahead and defend yourself.

But I promise you this; this is my final warning with regard to your Empires aggression.

If need be one by one your nations will fall, and one by one you will witness what it is like being on the other side of such unnecessary aggression.

If you are not prepared to be peaceful - then the community will make you rest in peace.

I cannot make it clear enough that warfare is to be the very last political tool to only be used when all else has failed.

You have been given fair warning.

Heed these words.


I for one am glad that the alliance has now taken a very firm stance and perhaps soon we will find that their words are far from empty.

If you like you can take back your former nation from me Smile See you soon? Tongue

As most of the regents here are German, I decided to post my response in this language:


Hochverehrte Mitregenten,

ich möchte die Gelegenheit nutzen um auch den offiziellen Standpunkt der Konföderation der Vereinigten Dominien von Terranea, Macria (Makreich), Igranur (W22 - S13), Lutiania, Galimban (Globalmot), Baristao (Bunzrepublik*), Pritonas (Markimark*), Garistyl (Grafilien*), Bryxant (Bartzien*), Xeronol (Xeron Two) und Wanabene darzulegen.

Unsere Konföderation ist keineswegs eine Vereinigung von Kriegstreibern oder blutdürstigen Tyrannen, auch wenn es hier einige offenbar so darstellen möchten. Unsere Maxime ist jedoch, dass nicht einzig und allein der Frieden, sondern die Freiheit das höchste zu schützende Gut der Menschheit ist - und sollte dies bedeuten, von Zeit zu Zeit in einen Krieg ziehen zu müssen um eben diese Freiheit zu verteidigen, so sehen wir uns gezwungen dies auch zu tun. Viele jetzige Mitgliedsstaaten der Konföderation mussten einst selbst unter blutlüsternen und unterdrückerischen Tyrannen leiden, bis sie durch die Konföderation befreit und in eine neue Ära der Freiheit geführt wurden. Frieden nur um des Friedens Willen erhalten zu wollen, selbst wenn hierbei grundlegende Freiheiten aufgegeben oder eingeschränkt werden, ist nicht nur gesellschaftlich kurzsichtig, sondern schlichtweg eine verachtenswerte Tat in Opposition zur freiheitlichen Grundordnung. SIE, verehrter Herr Gilfoyle, erweisen sich hierbei als klarer FEIND DER FREIHEIT!

Aber damit noch lange nicht genug: In einer unglaublichen Aktion heuchlerischen und doppelzüngigen Verhaltens, mit der Sie Ihre eigenen hochgelobten Prinzipien ad absurdum führen, DROHEN sie den freiheitsliebenden Bürgern der Konföderation auf unverschämte Art und Weise noch mit Krieg, Zerstörung und rücksichtsloser Vergeltung. Aber Vergeltung wofür? Etwa dafür, dass diese Bürger für ihre eigene UND die Freiheit anderer einstehen und sogar zu kämpfen bereit sind? Nein, ich sage Ihnen wofür: Sie wollen Vergeltung, weil die Konföderation mit all ihrer Entschlossenheit für die Freiheit einzustehen, SIE in einem schlechten Licht erscheinen lässt. Und SIE sind es auch, der Leid und Übel über die Welt bringt, indem er nicht nur seine eigenen Bürger, sondern auch die Bürger aller anderen Staaten dazu zwingen will ihre individuellen UND gesellschaftlichen Freiheiten aufzugeben, ja sogar das Leben in Diktaturen zu ertragen, und das alles nur um IHRER eigenen Profilierungssucht wegen, verehrter Herr Gilfoyle! Dieses Verhalten ist einfach nur schändlich.

Ich bin sicher, dass ich nicht der einzige bin, der Ihre Doppelzüngigkeit erkannt hat - auch in Ihren EIGENEN REIHEN gibt es sicherlich genug Regenten, die den Standpunkt der Konföderation teilen und Ihr diktatorisches und ungerechtes Regime ablehnen, und einzig und allein aufgrund der Notwendigkeit der Stabilisierung ihrer Staaten OFFIZIELL weiterhin zu Ihrer Linie stehen. Wir können nur jeden Regenten beglückwünschen, der den entscheidenden Schritt wagt und einsteht für das, was wirklich schützenswert ist: Unsere Freiheit.

Zu guter Letzt bleibt mir als Premierminister der Konföderation nur noch eines zu sagen: Aufgrund der schändlichen und verachtenswerten Drohung des Diktators James Gilfoyle, Leid und Zerstörung über die in der Vergangenheit bereits soviel Leid ertragenden Bürger der Konföderation zu bringen, sehen wir uns gezwungen, künftig den Kampf für Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit in dieser Welt einzustellen. Sie haben gewonnen, Herr James Gilfoyle! Die Freiheit jedoch hat eine Niederlage erleiden müssen...

[Post scriptum] Ich möchte gern alle Leser an einen sehr bekannten Ausspruch des unvergessenen Staatsmannes und Philosophen Benjamin Franklin erinnern: "Wer die Freiheit aufgibt um Sicherheit zu gewinnen, der wird am Ende beides verlieren."
LV, you should consider applying for President of the United States. Hehe
Well since I have no idea what any of the above reply means apart from the bit where you lovingly no doubt drop my name in I find myself unable to make a response.

If anybody would be kind enough to translate the reply - I would be very grateful as it is no doubt libelous and perhaps in need of a response. Especially judging by the US President Comment Tongue
He basically says that he is securing peace and freedom in the world by liberating states of their "dictators" and that anyone who opposes his actions (proposing diplomacy included) is an enemy of freedom... hence my US president comment. Hehe

But this is taken from a google translation, so you should still wait for someone to translate before replying.

well it's very much like vercingetorix said. Additionally he says, that he doesn't realy like your policy but nevertheless he is willing to obey and stop any further actions against 'ruthless dictators' Jaja

but he blames you to let these poor people 'suffer' and so you have to live with the everlasting label to have denied freedom to these peoples Tongue

In response to what is detailed above; The Monarch of Regensphere addresses the world and the Regent Liberty Valence. He speaks proudly and ,although not obviously, reads from a prepared speech.

He begins his speech as if quoting Liberty Valence;
James Gilfoyle is a Dictator:

Looking around and shaking his head he then simply stated;
Nope.

Before continuing;
I have had to make some executive decisions during my time as Alliance leader - none of which have gone against the mandate and values of the alliance and her members.

I should perhaps also probably note that although I am currently the Alliance Leader - the actual Alliance Leader is in the Deputy spot. He is just too busy to carry the responsibility at the moment hence why I have stepped up and will be relinquishing the position as soon as his time permits it.

He then adopts a more sarcastic tone;
Hmm, that doesn't sounds very oppressive to me...

Then returning to the seriousness by which he spoke before he again spoke as if by quotation;
James Gilfoyle is an enemy of freedom but you will stop your aggressive actions:

He unselfconsciously smiled;
Good, I am very glad to hear you will stop imposing your aggression upon other nations. Peace has, I hope, prevailed.

He took a moment to allow his words to carry weight;
I am sure the international community and the many regents across alliances will be happy to hear this.

I must say, on behalf of myself and this world, thank you for heeding my words.

In the future, I would hope that you will now consider diplomatic activities to be a more suitable means of preserving freedom.

I am far from an enemy of freedom and this young alliance has a number examples of where diplomacy has successfully eluded any sights of war and protected the freedom of independent regents as a result; Defending nations, communicating with certain individuals (regents, strong nations, influential alliance members etc), imposing economic and political sanctions etc.

These are all strong tools which should ALWAYS be exhausted before the use of any warfare is even considered.

My main point throughout our entire exchange, which you have for some reason failed to recognise, is simply that war is a political tool which could be used should diplomatic pressure not be successful in bringing about change in a particularly aggressive, oppressive (etc) nation - HOWEVER war is the very last resort when attempting to bring about change.

He then spoke as if quoting once more;
Perhaps... A note for the future...

If in future you feel the need to step in with another countries affairs - please talk to us about it, talk to other alliances about it and talk to the world about it.

Combined there is a lot more that we can accomplish without resorting to unjustified military action. We may be able to help you politically to bring about change in a particular nation which may be worrying you or perhaps the security of your people.

We are all friends in this world, let us not forget that, and we should all set examples of peace, freedom and integrity in all of our actions as we face the world.

He smiled once more and returned to his nations and alliance interests.
