[DoD] Update on Regional Situation

Day 2,138, 08:56 by Irish Department of Defence




September 27, 2013

Citizens of Ireland,

This report contains an update on our regional situation for the benefit of those not involved with the Dail; if you unsure after this article about the regional situation, contact your Dail representative as the Dail has been kept informed of government progress. A summary of Minister (of Defence) activity will be published through my personal paper before the end of the term as not to confuse articles of National importance with personal memoirs.

~Seanan
Minister of Defence

Update on Regional Situation

The Taoiseach's report states negotiations with the United Kingdom to formalize a peaceful and structured return of our regions has not succeeded due to protest from the UK over the restrictions it places on their future governments, however peaceful relations still remain.

The structured return of Irish regions is a matter of diplomatic and logistical importance; Both governments have met on amiable terms and wish to conduct business without malice. Hence, Government does not want to commit to a Resistance War if it is likely to fail because 1) it would be a waste of Irish resources given a structured return would secure the process, 2) Committing Irish influence without a structured agreement to a Resistance War which fails would unnecessarily damage the UK's Shield and hence jeopardize future relations and 3) it would likely require the UK's cooperation in some form to successfully secure a Resistance War with a first attempt.

The positions of interest is that the United Kingdom will want to avoid a situation where Ireland is opening successive unsuccessful Resistance Wars destroying their Shield, while we would like a return of our regions without provoking another war.

That said, The Circle of Trust's current military strategy has involved the opening of Drainage Resistance Wars in areas occupied by TWO and proTWO states - the recent Irish Resistance Wars have been a result of this strategy irrespective of Irish objectives. We are now in a situation where Irish Resistance Wars are occurring (despite being without Irish support), which are damaging the UK's Shield.

Given the Irish Government has committed to negotiations with true intent, recent events put the emphasis on the United Kingdom's Parliament to decide whether to 'cauterize the wound' and return Irish regions without multiple attempts, or accept attrition of their Shield as an acceptable loss.

Department of Defence's advise to citizens is a continuation of respect for the diplomatic process; undermining the government's lead in this situation would hinder negotiations, but also make a more toxic environment for the next government to operate in. There is an acknowledgement that some citizens will fight in these Resistance Wars, not with intent to cause harm but to obtain True Patriots medals. However, DoD asks Division 4 players to exercise caution as 70% of a Shield Bonus is allocated to Division 4 rounds during an Irish Resistance War - the Minister of Defence will be releasing an article with his insight into Shield Warfare later on which gives greater detail into fighting practices when concerning a Shield.

Signed,
Department of Defence

It's funny this whole article is justifying eUK's dominance over eIrish lands.

No no no, I would have needed to use egov stats to justify that. The article reports the cards which are held by the interested parties.

There isn't an agreement, the NAP ended - Aye, the report says UK are facing either regular RWs or they will have to return the regions. The only consideration current government needs to consider is whether they are going to hand a war they started to the next government to deal with - or get the UK to cooperate this term (or set in motion the return for next term).
