Despite being a RL ‘Merican, I have never been an eUSA citizen in my two-and-a-half years of playing eRepublik until about a month ago. By far most of my eLife was split between eIreland and eIndia (countries starting with the letter “I” are personal favorites).
eIndia was dying. It once was full of activity back when a Kualkerr led ePakistan attacked eIndia sparked national fervor. We got our asses kicked, but, we had fun in a common struggle. Then, with nation intact because China intervened (thanks btw for that), the eIndian community began to die slowly. There were political battles, and then there were alliance affiliation political battles.
See, eIndia was intensely loyal to maybe a handful of countries; namely, eBulgaria, eChina, eIreland to a lesser extent. When eBulgaria left EDEN it tore eIndia apart and some of our mightiest soldiers left to take eBulgarian cs when eIndia decided to stay aligned with EDEN marginally in GEA. eIndia hasn’t signed a MPP with eTurkey to this day.
Throughout these internally struggles there was one thing we all agreed on: if we had a nice difficult war eIndia would be focused on external matters and not internal.
So, it was decided by the new CP of eIndia RD1234 to go to war not with lame eThailand (serbs and hookers) but eIndonesia and in a few hours eIndia will be attacking eIndonesia. In addition to uniting the country it will help an ally in Australia who is fighting Indonesia on one front and New Zealand on the other!
Why do I write this in the eUSA? Well, America is stuck between battles they don’t want to fight in (Can-Am War) and few mpp battles. So, why not fight for eIndia? What possible excuse can there be to to not help a country that is extending its hand for friendship and cooperation against one that invaded America's Pacific Coast not that long ago? That it is despite being a fraction the size of Indonesia is attacking it head on!
Yes, many will claim it is a pointless battle. That it is a stupid thing to do. But, never again can you call eIndia a nation of cowards! Nor a nation that does not care for its allies because we are putting our nation at risk to help another. That’s what brotherhood is about.
Can we count on our brothers in America to help us out and color eIndonesia pink?

P.S. Bulgaria showed their true colors of what great brothers they are by siding with eIndonesia. They shouted and complained that the EDEN HQ was all about damagehood yet they have chosen damagehood by openly siding with eIndonesia despite hundreds of millions of damage eIndian soldiers have done for eBulgaria. I think eBulgaria has forgotten what the meaning of brotherhood is. I would suggest if eBulgaria is truly our brothers they would not fight for eIndonesia at all and help eIndia like we have for you so many times before.
