Declaration of Independence

This is an in-character post from the state of Cogworks


When, in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

That we will remain the independent state of Cogworks, applying trade and military respect to all other nations that afford us the same.

That we hope and pray, that no nation or alliance will try to take advantage of us, or, that in doing so, their enemies will see us as the friend to all we are, and speak for us in defence.

By doing so, we remove our vote from world leader contest, and, in voting for ourselves, beg forgiveness that this is not an insult to the others running for power, but a statement of our neutrality.

By the people, and for the people of
Cogworks

RE: Declaration of Independence

Ok, with regards to the neutraility of Cogworks. ENNN will now provide alliance tools to BOTH of the main alliances:

http://ennn.imen.org.uk/alliance/Dignity/
http://ennn.imen.org.uk/alliance/HumanismusIII/


Interesting the difference in strategy between the two: Dignity is spending a lot more on defence, but also overspending a bit. Humanismus is not so much yet, but a much more controlled budget.

If another alliance becomes large enough to be considered a 'world power' then I will add them - or I will at someone's request. Until next time! Cogworks out!

Nuclear Weapons


Or how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb

Today, it is with a heavy heart that I announce the successes in Cogworks Nuclear Program. Not only have we managed to replicate the nuclear weapons of the super powers of the world, but with our advanced engineering and technical, we have also created the missile infrastructure with which to be able to protect our fine nation.

Unlike most, we have chosen to stand alone in the world, and as such, we do not have the friends to protect us. We must seek first to protect ourselves - and we do through the method of M.A.D. Mutually, Assured. Destruction.

Mutual. We, will never instigate the attack, without massive provocation - our enemies would already be engaged in battle with us or our allies before we struck.
Assured. This will happen. Our infrastructure is hardened against all kinds of attack, social, technological, political, military. Aggressors towards us will be warned, and without ceasing and compensating, then they will be dealt with.
Destruction. Our weapons are developed to be ultimate - Should you be foolish enough to attack us, we will reign down the fires of the genii's upon you. Pillars of flame ten thousand feet tall. Cataclysmic events against you and your people so that you wish you had never been born.

We are not scared to wield this power - with great power comes responsibility and we shoulder it with care. The fair people of Cogworks will never be slaves to another nation - never bow down to the whims of an alliance or loose sovereignty to a remote government. An attack on Cogworks is a declaration of Total War - every man, woman, child, and cybernetically enhanced steam powered ninja monkey will fight to the last millimetre of mercury of pressure.

FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE, PEACE
Cogworks
