In tonights article I address the field of foreign affairs, wars and defense.
I've fought for a huge number of nations in my time in the game (merc medal) and have grown to respect the abilities of our friends and our enemies.
My own favored nations consists of eUK, Macedonia, Serbia, Indonesia and Canada, It therefore comes as no surprise that I'm heavily in favor of our current links with TWO and CoT and there will be no deviation away from that path during a potential term in office.
In the past 2 months we have embarked on many adventures as a nation having gone up against Canada, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway and Portugal and whilst we can individually take on those nations or even a combination of them together, we've also had to face their allies and friends and incurred a massive 'damage debt' towards our own allies.
The forum community may well recall the Kazuo and Aeriala invasions when I advocated and personnaly led some troops overseas to recoup credits for the eUK in key battles.
Those researchers may even of stumbled across an article from my formative years in the game - http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/-eng-about-friends-ru--1543372/1/20 It should therefore come as no shock that I won't be jabbing the NE button with the same maniacal relish as our current CP.
As I see our situation in the coming month;
1. We shall continue the war with the only EDEN nation that borders us (Norway) till such time as our exsistence, their EDENness or their exsistence changes that one fact.
These battles will however be spaced out and managed so that eUK damage can be focused towards repaying our allies.
2. If/when this campaign dies down then a suitable TW will be found but again it will be managed to allow maximum focus on TWO/CoT fronts.
With this vision of a calmer homefront I'd also like to address some other related issues;
The National/Offical MU
The title such as it was became an award by the incumbent CP after his party scrapped the last traditional-style, National MU.
The precedence of 'CP award' was furthur set in stone when the current incumbent disregarded a vote of congress and maintained the award to the Legion MU.
I am therefore keeping the option of nominating an offical MU or MUs based on the following criteria.
+ In-game Commander(s) must be an eUKer.
+ The MU must be willing to deploy to other TWO nations in order to assist in retention of captured regions by our allies. (A measure called for and endorsed by Congress)
+ Supplies must be available to any eUKer in the MU regardless of other political affiliations.
CTA will only be activated when eUK is in an actual shooting war. We will not be wasting assets on TWs or keep it running during times of peace just to keep it running.
I'd much rather we had a large stockpile to hand when push comes to shove and supplies are REALLY needed.
Once a sufficient stockpile has been procured then we will be running a joint, nationwide strike every Sunday on IRC.
Under the Aegis of the MoD we will have an equal amount of supplies available for all fighters regardless of division.
The divisions themselves will however be split into channels to allow a better focusing of damage as in the small window we 'strike' our national efforts may be required across numerous battles in specific divisions.
The delay between stockpiling and the first strike will allow time for the MoD to organise and trial run the project with the 'official/national' MU.
and so ends the surprisingly unrevolutionary part of my campaign. In the remaining articles I'll be revealing where the real meat of the campaing lies - Domestics.
Till next time,
