Call for Declaration of War Against the New Pacific Order

Call for Declaration of War Against the New Pacific Order


Europeia has not issued a declaration of war since 2009, nearly 10 years ago. In many ways, NationStates is not suited to war and prolonged conflict. How one wins and one loses is oft defined by writers of history rather than meaningful, tangible victories. Success is often difficult to grasp, as wars are fought by the pen as much as they are by the sword.

Why, then, would a well-established, even-keeled, and open-minded region such as ours ever go to war? Because we are gravely threatened by something. Not an army marching to our doorstep, but an existential threat. Because at the very core of our enemy is an ideology that demeans our stature as a region and questions our very right to exist, let alone co-exist

Francoism dictates the superiority of Game Created Regions, the inferiority of User Created Regions, and the necessary dichotomy between members of the two: feederites and userites. Yet this has not stopped the New Pacific Order from subjugating the region of St. Abbaddon, which we recently attempted to free and return to native nation, Topid, alongside our friends and allies. Nor has it stopped the New Pacific Order from attempting to subjugate fellow GCRs, including seizing the delegacy of Lazarus and conducting espionage against The North Pacific and the Black Hawks. Just tonight, we received word that two long-time members of Osiris were actually pseudonyms for NPO leaders. This consistent level of subversion, both of GCRs and UCRs, is unacceptable.

We have tolerated and even attempted to find common ground with The Pacific over the years, but the NPO has made it clear that they cannot peacefully coexist with Europeia in their declaration of war against The Black Hawks, “Henceforth, the New Pacific Order will actively conduct military operations against TBH and its interests. However, the Order is not a defender organization; raider organizations that refuses [sic] to cooperate with TBH will not be opposed by us in their R/D [Raid/Defend] operations.” As The Black Hawks are one of Europeia’s closest military partners, we fall squarely into the New Pacific Order’s threat of hostility. We will not tolerate it, and we will respond in kind.

Therefore, I am formally seeking a Declaration of War from the Europeian Senate against The Pacific, a declaration which will enshrine in our region what we already know to be true: that the New Pacific Order and its dangerous ideology is a threat to not only our community and our fundamental values but to regions of all stripes; and action must be taken to counter their aggression. Europeia will always stand for freedom, democracy, and equality, and today that means standing firmly and clearly against an enemy that detests all three.

Good luck, President. We in The Black Hawks of course recognize the situation you've been placed in by the New Pacific Order and admire the strong statement.

A strong and wise move by the President of Europeia, and one which I personally support as a foreign observer. The New Pacific Order must burn.

It's nice to see Euro standing up to NPO and its bullshit. Let us hope for the best, and that we can crush this menace once and for all.

Now this is a spicy meatball. Why not wait until after the Senate actually approves it though, it's not like the legislative process is very long in Europeia.

Probably because the minute he requested a war declaration from the Europeian Senate, someone would have leaked it and the spin doctors of GP would go to work framing the narrative against Europeia. Better to not be caught off guard with a leak, spun to misrepresent what you're doing.

Personally, I applaud Sopo for learning from the mistakes of the IJCC's launch and framing this exactly the way Europeia wants it framed from the start.

(somewhat OT to this particular thread, but...) While that reveal obviously looks bad for NPO, especially wrt Osi, TSP, and Laz both pre and post Imki — I'm not yet willing to pass judgement, because Feux/AMOM/etc. admitted to it freely on NSGP Discord and claimed it was them having fun, not NPO sanctioned. I'm anxious to see how this develops.

Because they'd definitely admit it was on order from higher-ups if that was the case :roll:

Europeia's harsh words regarding Feux and others' actions in Osiris is very much appreciated. Best of luck in your conflict.

I doubt the NPO can invoke plausible deniability in the current political atmosphere.

When they started with that stuff Ivan was still Emperor, and that doesn't really seem like the kind of thing he'd sanction while he was rebuilding NPO's image after NLO. Total speculation on my part, but those are my 2c.

What? Ofc they claimed it was them having fun: they were caught either way, and would totally say their superirors approved, making their home region even more disliked. And even if it was just them, why the hell does the NPO still tolerate them? If the NPO truly cares for it's allies, they would all have been banned already. There is simply no possible way to make this look good anymore: either you have the NPO infiltrating fellow GCRs, or you have the NPO refuse to ban their members who are spying on fellow GCRs. In both cases, the NPO approves of the actions, or at least tolerates it.

I deliberately phrased it that way and not as "we'll see what happens" because I specifically didn't want to give you in particular that bait to latch on to. Looks like you didn't even need the bait. :roll:

The division of players based on the game mechanics of their regions is a disgusting political agenda with a foundation of absurdity. Death to Francoism.
The subversion of many regions by the NPO, most recently Osiris, is absolutely unacceptable. I wish you the best of luck!

It does make Lazarene history more interesting at least, if Stujenske was Kowassati:
Kowassati/Stujenske | Sovereign/Grandee Secretary | January 30 - February 9, 2017 | Humane Republic of Lazarus - Celestial Union
Kowassati/Stujenske* | Sovereign | February 9 - 16, 2017 | Celestial Union
Basically Stujenske was banned during this time, thus it was an illegal delegacy and citizenship that no one knew about.
