Based on what Rylde has said about his motives since, I stand by I wrote.
Take a look at Sweden's war with Latvia: do you see a pattern there? Does that look like a struggle to the death to you? They've been fighting since Jan 1 (~30 days), and they've only 17 campaigns - in other words, roughly one campaign every other day. What should that tell you? Neither president is pushing the attack when they win. Also, after 17 rolls of the iron dice, the score is 9-8. Hmmm.
Now take a look at Finland vs. Estonia: active since Dec 12 ! Only 26 campaigns in ~50 days, and their score is 11-15.
Both of our principle allies have arranged more or less permanent training wars.
Our CP apparently saw the value in this: "I was looking at available options and was about to Message UK's CP to see if he would be intrested in a training war." But instead of following through with a good idea that would take a little work on his part, he took the easy way out.
In the absence of any explanation from our CP, people gave him credit for having a grand plan. I was skeptical of the grand plan theory, and it turns out I was right: starting a war with the UK was not for the benefit of our allies, it wasn't the best option, and it wasn't the only option. It was taking the easy way out. Was it heroic? Sure, if you define heroic downwards to include posting screenshots from Lord of the Rings during refractory periods.
As I said before, we get to pick another CP before we risk losing our congress again. Time to try someone else.
