It really seems like the wheels are coming off of this thing.
Obviously, I don't know what the strategy is, so I really don't know if things are going according to plan or not. Perhaps the intention from the beginning was to mess up diplomatic relations with a number of countries and try to establish a global reputation as ignorant bullies. I wasn't in on the meeting. I have no idea. I guess I shouldn't be TOO upset about not having any information, though. No one else seems to know what is going on either. We can join the rest of the world in a collective gobsmacked stare, left to wonder what American leaders could possibly be thinking.
Yesterday we received orders to avoid the Baja war completely. Word from the White House was that it was a trap, set by PEACE, to trick us into wasting our time. We were not to fight in that war because we would be handing over Baja to Mexico at a later time anyway and we needed to save our strength for a full blown war (or 'big war game with our allies' according to President Scrabman) that would be coming at any moment.
Today, we are asked to fight in the battle with Baja, on Mexico's side. As of this article, no official press release reflects these new instructions, but Scrabman has said as much in his personal postings (and said the opposite...never changed that last post).
I don't think it is in any way unreasonable or unpatriotic to wonder what the hell is going on right now. All of this contradictory information and overwhelming lack of details should be enough to make any citizen take a step back and ask 'whatchoo talkin' bout?'
I want to boost my stats as much as the next person, but I don't know if I am really on board with any of this. I may have to sit out and just see how it unfolds. It is well within my rights to NOT fight. There is no draft... no conscription. My government has yet to give me one good reason why I should be an accomplice to any of this.
