[PotUS] Regarding the Air Force

Hari ke 1,759, 15:38 Published in USA Amerika Serikat oleh Israel Stevens


My fellow Americans,

You may have noticed that the Senior Officer Corps of the Air Force have resigned their position, effective immediately. I will admit to being as surprised as you are. I was informed of the decision in the exact same way that you were: the article.


I am going to take a break from the political rhetoric, and saying what I am ‘supposed’ to say for a bit here.

I think that ultimately, this is the best move for both Roper and the Air Force. The relationship between Roper and the various Secretaries of Defense and Presidents, had deteriorated to a point where it was non-existent. It was like being in a toxic relationship with a girl, where no matter what the other side did, it was resented. You could bring this girl flowers and chocolate, and she’d hate you because you didn’t get the right flowers.

There was the feeling in the government, that the Air Force Command was not performing up to the standards they should be.
The feeling in the Air Force was that the government wasn’t doing enough to help the Air Force, and not giving it any respect.

Both of those things are true to various extents, and there are many people responsible for how we got here. No one party is in the right, and that should be remembered. I have my fair share of blame to shoulder with how the creation of Rogue Squadron was handled. I was under the assumption that Air Force Command was being kept abreast of the creation of a new Branch, when in fact that was not true. They knew bits and pieces, but most of it came as a surprise to them. I have apologized profusely to Roper for this, but it is in vain. To him, I’ll always be the bad guy.

But despite the failings of the government, all was not right with the Air Force. Their Command was by far the hardest to work with. If you weren’t in their inner circle, you were a nobody. They were incredibly resistant to change, or input, or advice. But yet, they gladly scooped up the money offered to them. Especially when it was extra money meant for expanding their Weapons Raw Materials production.

I think Roper and company will be happier in a MU not affiliated with the Government, and I think that the Air Force will be better served with a new General. I wish him and his friends the best of luck in their new MU.

I am however, extremely disappointed with their inability, or lack of desire to communicate their problems with the government. A simple message would have sufficed.

Myself and many of the Senior Officers would like to talk with you. We’re very unhappy, and are considering resigning from our positions. -Roper

A message like that could have prevented this. It would have been the professional, and courteous thing to do. The former Air Force Command talked about wanting respect, but yet they don’t show any to the President or the Secretary of Defense.

Even if sending a message, asking to talk was too much for them, the professional, and courteous thing to do, would have been to hand over supplies, communes, and Budget money before publicly resigning. The only thing that resigning in the middle of the night does is screw over the rank and file of the Air Force.

It seems to me that this was never about the soldiers in the Air Force. It was about the feelings of a handful of Senior Officers. It is truly unfortunate.




Where do we stand presently?

creitzell has been promoted to the rank of General, and Commanding Officer of the Air Force, and he has promoted emdoublegee and Dr Luis Sentieiro to the position of Executive Officer.


Although Roper and company did not hand over the budget and supplies before they resigned, they have done so at this point. I would like to sincerely thank them for that. The Military Unit is no longer in their control, something else that they should be thanked for. The communes were not owned by any Air Force personnel, so those were never in danger.

The only thing remaining to be turned over by Roper, is the money that he was given to upgrade the Air Force’s Weapons Raw Materials companies. $1.075 Million was given to him in the final days of President Evry’s term, and another $1 Million was given to him during President Civil Anarchy’s term. Of that sum, about $550k has been returned.

The Air Force used that money to purchase 105 Weapon Raw Materials Companies. All of which are held by the officers that left. There were also Storage units purchased, but those are not recoverable.

I trust that the former Senior Officers of the Air Force will return this property. They have been very accommodating thus far, and I have faith that they will not want to tarnish their exit from the United States Armed Forces.

In closing, I would like to thank the many people that stepped up this morning, creitzell, john nwp, emdoublegee, TTi09, as well as a host of others.

I would also like to wish Roper and the rest of the Senior Officers the very best on their new endeavors. Good luck, and thanks for your time in the United States Armed Forces.

To the rest of the Air Force, thank you for your patience in this matter. We are working as fast as we can to repair the damage done. We’ve made huge strides already today.

I have enormous faith in the men and women of the Air Force, and I know that although these events test their resilience, they will continue to live by the motto of the Air Force:

★ Aim High ★

such is the stuff divorces are made of.
one important thing to remember, though-- it ain't the end of the world for anyone.
so much of our MU's is all about the social interaction, how we make friends and get along with our buddies. there's absolutely no reason for any player to stay in any group-- military or political-- where they're not comfortable with their buddies as well as the ideals and management of their leaders.
once the custody issues are worked out, everyone wins.

I also believe this will be resolved in a reasonable way, Lets just hope its sooner than later!

You could have at least called Roper that three-letter word starting with 'f' and ending with 'g' to his face instead of behind his back (behind his back, really?). And people wonder why we're upset. Ralph (who was SoD for a long time) and I always had a good relationship and we never had a problem with the very nice way he dealt with us during Oblige's terms and Artela's term. It seems like after Artela's term, the problems started....

I would have recommended instead that you spread out those 105 weapons raws info a larger pool; 20, 100 or more.

"The Air Force used that money to purchase 105 Weapon Raw Materials Companies. All of which are held by the officers that left. "

Really? ALL? Is that the word we really want to use here? I see....

GLHalJordan
GLHalJordan Hari ke 1,759, 18:35

Oh, and voted. But I do want to say that another article about what should have been done, is really a bit unnecessary. Already Avruch is posting imprecise "facts" in his articles. An appeal to the president about this has yielded no results and yet opening dialogue was supposed to be an option?

Anyhow, as a co-founder of the newly formed MU, I cannot wait until all this clears up a bit and we can get back to work without having to see what "facts" have been printed about us some more.

It seems as though everything about this issue would have been better addressed if the various parties involved, in particular the officers who had left, had spoken to the administration before pulling such a move. Nevertheless, the nation will continue to grow and prosper and this is just a small bump in the road.

@Fitisin

@Hal Jordan - My understanding is that the seven officers that left, each had 15 Saltpeter mines. (7*15=105) So yes, All is the correct word.

No one seemed interested in talking when decisions were made about splitting up the Air Force, no one even seemed interested when Roper had to ask for increased AF funding week in and week out because we kept having to sell our own production to make it through the week and keep the unit afloat. Now suddenly everyone's incredibly open to communication. I will quote Slyk Willy from another article eerily similar to this one - "you reap what you sow."

" If you weren’t in their inner circle, you were a nobody. They were incredibly resistant to change, or input, or advice. But yet, they gladly scooped up the money offered to them."This reminds me of the same things said about another group that said F.U. I don't have to take your shit anymore. What is the common denominator in those two examples? If we keep voting in the same people with the same agenda we are going to get the same results

A simple message would've sufficed to tell them Flight Training was being separated out from the AF.

A simple message would sufficed to tell them about Rogue Squadron.

Both sides have a history of non-communication, so it's not surprising that this came about in this fashion.

Nor any other CP's of the past with the exception of oblige, at least he had the balls deal with the issue's face to face.

I must repeat part of what I said in Avruch's article, "half truths slanted to paint the picture you want everyone to see. I don't like this sleaziness this is very representative of our government and the elitist who monopolize the system for their own benefit."

You guys left the eMil so that you would have control and power over the military. It is your responsibility as potus, or now the overlord of everything, to ensure your people are doing well, it is NOT the rest of the worlds responsibility to check on YOU.

Leadership...you have to be ready for it and accept it. I still don't see that you have.

The problem with the incredible amount of spin in the government (and lackey) media is that in the people are getting dizzy. A little longer and they're gonna start barfing all over the place.

Once again, it's CLEARLY about the money, not the fact that a bunch of SOLDIERS who put in their time, to help were finally led to mass resignation. WHATEVER their temperament. (If they weren't the best people for the job, what kinda DoD have you guys been running the last boatload of months?)

"Although Roper and company did not hand over the budget and supplies before they resigned, they have done so at this point."
So what is the point of saying that they havent done it "before"? Big deal, but the stain remains by using the words "did not hand over the budget".
"The Military Unit is no longer in their control"
As if they were PTOers!
"The communes .../...were never in danger."
In danger by a government appointed XO?
And then you are talking about trust!

This is the perfect article, of a Politician...

For Air Force members, all is clear. Even for the newly nominated COs and XOs.

My only advise for u Stevens is: Be a man, face the consequences of your actions. Don't try to twist the facts so you can look better.

And please find me One, yes, just ONE Air Force pilot who had trouble communicating, or had a toxic girlfriend relation, with Roper.

So ask yourself, why it was with you like that?

Ignas2526
Ignas2526 Hari ke 1,760, 05:20

Us not communicating with you?
Well you are the POTUS, it is your job to keep each eUSAF MU on the same page.
I never seen you coming into #airforce and asking whats up.
All news to our "command" were arriving from a Commander, officer, or random soldier from the MU in form of "Where is this new thing..." or "Whats going on?" that's how our communication was going.
No one ever asked us what we thought about that change or what we think.

Ignas2526
Ignas2526 Hari ke 1,760, 05:37

As for our closed elitist command, we always welcomed anyone who wanted to join, as long as they wished well for Air Force, Evry and Oblige never hard problem being in our command IRC room, only you.
As for returning stuff: I am one of those 7 people, I already returned tanks and food for QMing, as for WRM factories I'm not returning them, because I don't feel like it.

Ignas2526
Ignas2526 Hari ke 1,760, 05:38

You should have posted here your offer to us: "you ether dissolve them and return half the price for each factory, or if you keep them, you must return full price." To me this sounds like you are just trying to show-off your power, you don't want or need them back.
So, no WRM Factories for you, unless you will get off your throne and talk with us like with equals.
Or else what? You going to order Roper to DDC me like Slyk? Well I'm not in eUSAF and was banned from eUSAF IRC rooms.
