So you've heard a lot about what makes CoT the right choice, now its time to get a bit more controversial with my opinion. It appears we have two divergent opinions in this country; one side supports our shift two CoT while the other would like us to retain our independence and return to supporting our traditional allies in EDEN while maintaining separate partnerships. Others simply pursue a third course of being patient and listening to all sides while the situation develops. What people may not know is that I have been on all sides of this debate at different points in time. I used to be very pro-EDEN and enjoyed supporting Greece, Argentina, Croatia, and Turkey in their battles. I also used to fight against Chile, Indonesia, Bulgaria, and wrote a WHPR that supported these fights.
When I started, I was initially skeptical of our situation while maintaining that it could be a bright start to something new. I also held loyalties to countries in EDEN who now fall on the other side in multiple recent battles. However, I've never really supported EDEN as an organization, and it appears many within EDEN aren't exactly keen on it either. For those out of the loop, all of EDEN's command resigned several days ago. Several countries have had referendums on EDEN and from what I've seen, none are positive. Argentina left EDEN because it felt abandoned, and India left EDEN due to betrayal by Croatia. EDEN is quickly becoming a regional alliance that adopts strategies it used to crusade against. The little guys in the alliance no longer matter, as evidenced by Croatia's dealings with India.
Right now, EDEN is pushing Taiwan as the priority over helping Albania in Serbia. EDEN would rather get back at us and protect Taiwan's colonies over helping Albania in its fight against one of it's oldest enemies. Currently, the MoFA of Romania is in trouble for essentially saying EDEN fails and to support Serbia. I used to think I could support our friends while withholding support for the organization, but this is becoming unbearable. I still hold support for our Albanian brothers, but I urge them to strongly reconsider their ties to this dying alliance. You may not like the United States' support and allegiance to Circle of Trust, but you know where we stand on Serbia. Circle of Trust isn't TWO, and they are more focused on helping free their allies than come after you, Albania. And at least they aren't pretending to be your ally while shouting in support of your enemy. True friends stab you in the front. I'm not advocating for Albania joining CoT, simply that EDEN is not working out for them.
As for CoT, they have been proving great allies thus far. And despite what you may say, they are fighting for us, whether they are in Bulgaria, Macedonia, or Mexico. The eUS is priority despite being the newest member. Maybe we just aren't used to the fact of having an alliance that actually supports us, kinda weird isn't it? I'd choose being in CoT over being neutral and EDEN-light any day. But I can still be convinced. I want people to present strong and convincing cases why I should support EDEN over CoT. And don't just convince me, convince everyone. Tell us what makes ties to that alliance so much better. Tell us why our new alliance is so horrible. If all you have is the past, you can never reach towards the future. I don't want a history lesson, I want results. Stop trying to convince us to support what EDEN used to be, and tell me why I should support what EDEN is now.
