My fellow Americans,
Mere moments ago, our supposed ‘greatest ally’, Brazil proposed a MPP with Spain.
It’s no secret that the United States has had a lukewarm relationship with Spain in the past year. They’ve been the least terrible of all the TWO nations. Admittedly, that’s not saying a lot. But up until recently, they had stayed out of TWO’s massive invasion of the United States.
Now however, we are at war with Spain. And to see Brazil do something this low, and cowardly is a true punch in the stomach.
Why this stings so much
Brazil did a lot for us.
They sent us ATO voters even while their own country was under the threat of a Romanian PTO. They went out on a limb with us when Terra was formed. It took a lot for them to do that, just like it did for us. They held communes for us, after we lost our bonuses, just as we had held communes for them during our Golden Age.
Brazil and the United States had a bromance that was born out of our mutual struggles. Following the collapse of Terra and CTRL, both nations needed a home but neither of us wanted to join EDEN. So we resolved to stand together. On our own against ONE. We would do everything that we could for each other, not just because we had to, but because we wanted to.
Our bromance was a real one. It wasn’t a foreign policy stunt.
I was the Secretary of State that helped draw up the United States’ first Bromance Pact.
306 days ago, on Day 1872 President Cerb and President RegisAJR signed the bropact, permanently and publicly cementing our love and respect for each other.
The United States destroyed our relationship with other countries in order to stand by Brazil. We supported their foolhardy attempt to attack China, even though we knew that doing so would forever ruin any chance we might have of wooing China.
It was a huge risk for us, but we did it willingly. That’s how much we cared about Brazil and how much we we were willing to sacrifice for them.
So how did we get here?
There has always been an internal struggle within Brazil. A strong push to return to the days of Phoenix and PEACE when Brazil was allied with Serbia and Hungary.
It is similar to the internal dynamics of the United States. The major difference being that both sides have political power and extensive foreign policy contacts, and of course that no one in the USA wants to ally Serbia.
This leads to shifts in Brazilian foreign policy on a monthly basis, making them a difficult country to rely on. And it leads to the United States supporting Brazilian plans that we know are foolish (ie: trying to invade China).
All of this fickleness has meant that our once powerful bromance has been losing it’s importance to us. At a certain point, it gets tiring trying to continually appease an ally that may not be worth your time. Add in the rise of our friendships in Circle of Trust and continually following Brazil from one silly initiative to the next just isn’t worth it anymore.
When we had no one else, we spent a lot of time trying to keep Brazil from allying Poland or Spain or Serbia. But our focus has been elsewhere of late, and this lapse in attention has meant that Brazil has looked elsewhere for damage.
Where do we go from here?
After everything we’ve been through with Brazil, this stings a lot. All of the sacrifices we’ve made and all that we’ve given up is being tossed away.
But all is not lost. We still have friends in Brazil, and there are still people that I am proud to call not just my ally but my friend as well. The strongest military unit in Brazil, C.A.T. Brasil is still considered to be an ally of the United States. We will continue to support them, and know that they will continue to fight the good fight in a nation gone astray.
I am still holding out hope that the Brazilian Congress will come to their senses and vote this law down. There is still almost 22 hours left, and many votes outstanding.
This relationship can still be saved. Years of friendship does not go down the drain just because of one MPP.
I am extending the olive branch, and willing to double down on our relationship with Brazil, if they are willing to step back from the ledge.
