A lot of soldiers have recently asked me, why are we losing? Why are we getting so thoroughly beaten that we can’t even win a minibattle? The sad truth is that the answer is not that there’s some master plan. It’s not that we’re doing anything wrong. The current eUS Government and the people who are working to fix these messes are doing everything possible, and they deserve all our respect for doing what needs to be done. Sure there are some blowhards out there that think they could do a better job, but the reality is that we’re in no position to win. We're getting trounced because over the past six months our government has pissed off every ally we have, and made no qualms about being complete turncoats in many cases. We are now left with almost no allied support at all. Those 26 MPPs don't do us ANY good if those 26 countries refuse to fight for us, and many do.
Unfortunately the problem runs even deeper than that. You see, we're not the only country getting bent over and screwed silly. Every single one of our allies is too. Terra/EDEN have been horrible with communication, while ONE has been excellent. This is, as I told our government months ago and was subsequently ignored on for months on end, because it's easy to coordinate 5 big countries rather than 20+ little ones. Unfortunately, even as we are FINALLY making some strides toward better communication, due to the above our allies still aren't giving us the aid we need.
So here are the cold hard facts: We're no match for ONE. We wouldn't be unless all of our allies finally got it together and started working as a team. Unfortunately, even then, we fall short of ONE's damage doing ability, but we would have a better chance once that occurred.
The sad reality is that we brought this on ourselves. Our government believed itself to be invincible and did whatever it wanted. Now we're dealing with the consequences, just like in WWIII.
How do we fix it? The fact is that up until three days ago there was no strategy whatsoever. There was actually talk of getting wiped and just starting over. Thankfully President Glove has shown a more resilient attitude, and has been listening to strategy. We are attempting to stage a counter offensive, but the reality is that we may be falling into stalling tactics, because we are so badly outgunned.
I'd like to end this by saying that we can win this invasion, but I'd be lying to you all if I said that. The fact is that no matter what we do, our damage falls well short of ONE's, even when EDEN and Terra are working in direct coordination. On top of that, EDEN and Terra are attempting to merge now, and create a new alliance. While I'm very happy that this is finally happening, the measured damage is still far below what is necessary to defeat ONE. I hope that our allies will begin coming to our aid. I hope that Glove continues to take my advice and put up a resistance against our invaders. I hope that we find a way to turn this all around. The reality is bleak, and there is no guarantee of victory.
Whether we win or lose, we will go down fighting. Our enemies will pry this land from my cold dead hands. I will not stand by to watch us lose. The past few days have been inspiring, and though I still feel resistance, the eUS Government is moving in the right direction. I'm not going to stop pushing either. I'll drag this country to the battlefields, kicking and screaming if I have to.
It's about time someone did.
