Good Evening eAustralia,
As I begin this article, let's be honest. No one likes being told they got it wrong by a guy they don't like. I know I'm that guy to a lot of you, but it's time for you to take your medicine.
Most of you by now would have read this article by Majester...
It talks about the CoT Court Decision that found both eAustralia and eChile GUILTY of breaking the 'eAustralia Terms of Conditional Surrender', ooops, sorry I meant 'Treaty'
Majester hopes this would mean eChile would also get wiped like our country for being found guilty, but let's be honest, NOTHING will happen.
In fact, this mess was predicted by me on December 17 in the Public Gallery of the eAustralia forums.
Furthermore, I note that is nothing in the terms to suggest Chile should help us protect our returned regions. That is, Chile could return the region to us (meeting their obligations) then *suggest* to Indonesia they take them. Memories of the Indonesia NAP, with the following Brazil attack on us come to memory.
BINGO! I've been playing this game long enough to know that you can never, ever trust eIndonesia. You have to think a few steps ahead. When this 'deal' was being done with eChile, little thought was given by the then PM or his MoFA team on what would the Indos do.
Meanwhile, the FAIL for our nation kept on coming. As Greg (the then PM) tried to egg out this deal with eChile, eChile started an RW in the Northern Territory BEFORE terms had been agreed to by our senate.
As I said in the Public Gallery at the time...
Chile knew that by starting this RW in NT they were setting us up.
If we fight and win, they will demand the deal is signed (even if we don't like it) and we pay $200,000 to the neutral country.
If we fight and lose on purpose to avoid the deal, they will say they gave us a chance and take the morale high ground.
eChile saw the play coming. From not only trapping us into a deal, they knew at some stage we would have to break. By our own hand, or it being forced by eArgentina lead RWs or Indonesian threats. It was a deal set up to blow up in our face.
Around the sound time, by thinking of this deal was confirmed by older player Schoft who started a thread in the public gallery...
Chile does not want to give us any regions back, wants us in the same alliance or have no intention what so ever. So why do we waste our time discussing this, its not going to end up in tears because the tears are already here.
He hit the nail on the head. However, for some strange reason, some people had this bong induced thinking that CoT would accept us and we'd be friends with eChile, eNZ and eIndonesia... ain't gonna happen!
The big reality check was from an article of mine, where the eIndonesia President made the following comment...
With eIndos, it's always been WA
With every campaign, all we ever wanted was WA
From Beta until now, that's always the case
Total annihilation is more like a bonus, and to end the war
Ofc there's an ego boost like "South Indonesia" propaganda
But the main goal is WA, 20% boost to our weapons
Everytime eIndo have WA, you'll have your peace
But when eIndo lost WA, every deal means nothing
So just give us WA, for free, it's easier for all of us : 3~
Despite all of this, some people still wanted to make this eChile deal happen and have us move towards a Pro CoT stack.
In fact, some people where so angry with the suggestion of any opposition to us not joining CoT they made threats.
In the Public Gallery Tim_Holtz threatened...
do what you want but honestly if eAus fights it will be wiped forever and ill be helping keep it wiped (not that im that strong)
So what do we do as a nation to a person that threatens to help wipe our nation if we don't do something their way... we elect them Prime Minister!
Hopefully we now wake up to the reality that we got played by CoT. Like I said many articles ago, CoT stood for Circle of Traitors.
So let's stop worry about what we do and how it will look in CoT's eyes, let's move on to make friends with countries that want to be friends with us.
The process has already begun with a new MPP with the eCzech Republic, with the financial help of yours truly.
Maybe, just maybe, we might be as brave as eIreland who has a big bully (Spain) threaten them not to vote to become proEDEN, but instead said "We may be out-gunned, but SCREW YOU, you don't tell out country what to do".
In fact, if you read the article, they are talking to the CUA alliance!
Bravo for thinking outside the box eIreland and showing some balls... something that is badly needed in this country.
