On the Polish Advance

Day 882, 21:38 by Myles Robinson

American Citizens, Allies, and people of the New World,

For some time now, relations between the United States and Poland have been spiraling out of control, entering into the chilliest period they have ever been. Tensions between the two powers played a small part in the American withdrawal from EDEN, and mutual trolling have only resulted in further strife. Discord was amplified by the campaign promises of the current president of Poland to occupy the American fortresses of California, Florida, and Karnataka. Throughout all of this, the eUnited States of America has restrained itself from acting belligerently and has time and time again sought to work diplomatically with Poland and Spain and to work through the differences between us all.

Now, though, the empires of Poland and Spain which have for long held dominion over the European continent are turning their guns to the West, and didn't let us know about the shootout. Through a series of landswaps with Spain, Poland has gained a border with the nation of Mexico. Tonight, the Polish Congress has overwhelmingly approved of declaring war on Mexico. Poland, with their Spanish allies, will soon be invading our neighbor to the south. We were not informed of this maneuver at all. Neither were the leaders of the nations of EDEN. Poland and Spain have embarked on this course in secrecy, not inviting us to join in or at least giving us a heads up to watch the fun. They refuse to reveal their intentions to us, and they are spending an inordinate amount of treasure for opening this venture.

As of now, this is perceived a threat to the eUnited States of America. The nation of Poland has been openly belligerent towards us of late--offensive national goals, PTO groups within our borders, severance of communication--but this is a step further. They are strategically positioning themselves to assault a region that will place them close within striking distance of our homeland. Some say they plan to move southwards and not north, but the mere fact that, after weeks of hostility, they are now putting themselves in an area that can get them easily to Florida and/or California cannot be overlooked. An unexplained attack on Mexican soil will be seen as a threat to the United States of America. This is a simple concept. You attack our neighbor, you raise eyebrows. You claim to be an ally, yet do not share your plans with us, you raise eyebrows. Poland has done nothing to alleviate tensions between us recently, and we have raised our eyebrows.

As the United States Secretary of State (MoFA), I say to all the whole now that, as it stands, the Polish invasion of Mexico is seen as a threat to the United States. If they had told us or EDEN of plans to conquer Mexican regions, this might be different; but they are deliberately withholding information from all of us. I request that the leadership of the nations of EDEN insist Poland explain their actions and assure that they have no ill will towards the United States. I ask our friends in EDEN, who came to our rescue the last time the American homeland was under threat and whom we have worked so closely with over the past months, to stand strong with us again. Poland must reveal her intentions, or else we have no choice but to view these actions as hostile.

For too long Poland has been secretive as to their true intentions towards the United States. Here we will ask Poland to reveal their intentions to us. They ought to at once acknowledge if they are hostile to us or not.

If that means war, then let it come. The assembled might of the PEACE Global Community could not subjugate our people; a Polish invasion would not be able to either. Poland, end this madness and reveal your intentions. We are willing to continue working with you; we've invaded Mexico before. It was fun. But if you go about this without telling us why... well, with our recent history, you can see why we're upset and feel threatened.

Let us know, 'kay?

~Myles Robinson~
Secretary of State

Disagree. Poland is a nation with whom americas current stance is neutrality. They do not owe us information.

I REALLY wish they had, since there could have been some fun, but theres no point in condemning them (besides causing more harsh feelings on both sides)

Voted. Given recent history, it's pretty suspicious that neither Poland nor EDEN saw fit to mention these moves, since we still do military planning with EDEN. If they were simply striking other nations for high resources, what would they have to hide from us?

You IGNORANTS! Stop thinking only about yourself! POLAND DOES NOT HAVE HIGH OIL. OUR tickets cost too much and it is why our army is not so mobile! You left EDEN and now you want information and cooperation? You are pissed of because now we will not protect your High Iron and yet you never wanted us to have one! Why can't you see the other point of view and you say that all our actions are based on nationalist approach!? It's a game, but now I can see why so many of Poles want to attack USA. But it will not happen.

Is it so hard to send an in-game PM to our POTUS or MofA? All of this could have been avoided with just a heads up.

Let Poland have their fun. Maybe they didn't tell us first because someone would have leaked it to Mexico in advance, and Mexico could have MPP'd up *before* Poland could into SE-of-Mexico.

&gt;You left EDEN and now you want information and cooperation?

We left Eden because there wasn't any information and cooperation. You guys just showed us that you haven't learned yet. Shit, we could have gotten in on the action with you. How selfish is that?


&gt;You are pissed of because now we will not protect your High Iron and yet you never wanted us to have one!

Did you just claim that your allies don't want you to have a high iron region? Do you regularly make up idiotic conspiracy theories, or is this something you're new at?


&gt;Why can't you see the other point of view and you say that all our actions are based on nationalist approach!?

Why should we try so hard understand your point of view and your needs when all you ever do is make up crazy conspiracy theories and bash us?

THIS. Poland was waiting around 2 months in Extremadura for sudden attack one of silent Phoenix supporter. We have a chance to get high oil now.

Somehow we can cooperate with Spain and Coratia. The only weak point was you and now you make a victim of yourselves. To be honest I wanted USA and Poland to be together but after North of Brasil I started to question, as there were many articles so that Poland should not be allowed to gain HIron in your press and hearts probably. Our aim differ yet we have the same foes and on that foundation we can build something new, not alliance but respect.

There wont be any invasion. USA has 60 regions in total. This alone is a deterral from any attack.

Besides, USA still has allies that would have an extremely hard time ever fighting fighting against USA.

It was just that the movements looked really weird.

The mutual obligations will always be carried out automatically in the USA-EDEN alliance.

The scheming by leadership of some countries is what causes disagreements. The citizens of our nations do not approve the hostility governments are showing. All that is needed is a call to arms and the allied countries will always honour the call.

The real problem is that our new arrangement doesn't have a title.

So lets call our new alliance

EDENUSA MAXX or SUPERALLIANCE.

HAIL USA
HAIL POLAND SPAIN ROMANIA CROATIA
HAIL SWEDEN NORWAY FINLAND SWITZERLAND
HAIL AUSTRALIA BOSNIA CANADA
HAIL SOUTH AFRICA
HAIL JAPAN INDIA CHINA
HAIL THE OTHER COUNTRIES OF THE GREATEST MPP SYSTEM IN THE WORLD

THE SUPERALLIANCE

&gt;The only weak point was you

Battle stats and the fact that we acquired Karnataka beg to differ. But please, keep acting butthurt because you failed a military campaign. Keep spreading conspiracy theories around Spoland about us. You're not hurting anyone but yourselves by alienating us.

Dante Alagherii Day 883, 01:00

The USA - Poland MPP not being renewed isnt such a big deal.

Sure it counted vs indonesia and russia in asia, but those countries were never a threat to usa in asia.

Same thing with the romania mpp. Our countries are so strong now that we dont have to fear an invasion by invaders.

The only times in recent memory Phoenix has gained any ground anywhere has been through intrigue.

I'll list the latest ones in chronological order:

1. Western Australia treaty

2. Norway TO

3. April 1 meeting

4. South Africa PTO

And that's all what, in less then a month?

Plus, why should we inform you about anything? You left EDEN, hello, remember that?

Cerber
Cerber Day 883, 01:18

1. We wanted to avoid leaking which happens quite oftenly when EDEN and (even more often) USA is informed.
2. Of course we should've told you, you would sign MPP with Mexico even faster, same as you signed peace with Colombia. OH, YOU JUST IGNORED POSSIBLE COOPERATION THERE. Stop whining about us not 'asking' then. You're neutral, be neutral.

What makes you think that we want you back in EDEN or make any actions together with US??!! NoB and Sindh showed what can we expect from joint operations with USA. No thank you

Nayu
Nayu Day 883, 02:12

We don't have to explain our actions to eUSA. You are neutral. What? We have to give out our plans to any other neutral country? No, but you are butthurt like always. You are not the center of the eWorld, you know. If you are so scared, than just prepare. You are not really in position for making any requests like that.

Paranoia MAX!

Let's all stop being paranoid. Who are our citizens gonna fight against? It certainly wont be any old allies.

USA is ready, and always looking for new battles.

@ Emerick Holdings

Ehh you only give evidence that you fight for your own profit and only then you give everything you have. When fighting for your HI u were heroes but when fighting for your allies you're much more hesitant. NoB is the proof of that.

You are wrong, we've learned that we cannot count on you when we try to get high region (&quot;we will destabilise world economy&quot;, your words right?) and informing you about our plans would be probably equal to inform Mexico... And after NoB and Sindh we do not want to cooperate with you and since you left EDEN we don't have to.

Lazy Greg and all you others talking about NoB-
the eUS military (one of the most powerful mobile forces in the game) deployed to NoB to fight for you guys.
We worked our butts off trying to get you guys high iron.

That said, its not like you guys didn't know losing was a possibility.

Military leaders in EDEN (like our own [or used to be anyway] GJ) said that it had a great chance to fail because of an RW, yet you still did it, hmmm.

oh, and the Asia campaign was done because of an EDEN push for it.

srsly though, the eUS had been supplying the most damage in all major EDEN campaigns since we left, so stop saying we are neutral, we just didn't want to be part of the alliance, we are still putting up huge amount of men and money into it.

I have to ask you: are you REALLY a Secretary of State?

'Here we will ask Poland to reveal their intentions to us.'

Here we will refuse to reveal our mysterious intentions. And wut now?

Next time you guys want to swap us to Asia and talk to Spain and Romania instead of Poland, please at least try to be kind in public.
