USA in the Circle!

1,994 jour, 13:13 Published in USA États-Unis de Israel Stevens

Something that I wanted to write about, but haven’t been able to find the time to, has been the United States’ formal acceptance into Circle of Trust. This is a major event in our history, and I wanted to take a few moments to express my thoughts on why CoT was the best choice for the United States.

In November, President Cerb and I came to the conclusion that the United States needed to solidify our foreign policy. Every new President getting elected and putting their twist on foreign affairs was killing us. Relationships were changing month to month.

Cerb’s plan to create Bro Pacts with Brazil, Albania and Russia was key to our philosophy. It solidified our commitment to those nations. Towards the end of the term, it became clear that the best way to solidify our foreign policy was to join an alliance. It would give us a set list of MPPs, and a core group of countries to call friends.

EDEN was in the middle of their year long death throes (which finally ended), so they weren’t an option.
TWO was never considered.
Nor was Asgard.
The Canadian President was trying to create a new alliance, but it was made up almost entirely of small countries, and died quickly.

We were left with one option. And it was the most intriguing one.

President Cerb, Vice President Inwegen and myself had multiple meetings with the leadership of CoT, and became convinced that they would be an excellent fit for the United States.

They were the outcasts so to speak. Unwanted and rejected by the other alliances, they had banded together under the principles of trust, friendship and equality to form a powerful alliance. With the addition of the United States, we knew that the Circle of Trust had the potential to rule the world.

There were questions of course, and some of them still persist. But for us, the benefits outweighed the costs.

We brought Congress into the fold and when Inwegen was elected President in December, we began the process of formally applying to the alliance. That process was finished during Fingerguns’ term and we were a trial member of the alliance.

Our Trial membership was not without issues however. On numerous occasions I found myself deeply frustrated with CoT HQ, and our decision to join the alliance. I believed in the alliance, but not in the leadership. During Fingerguns’, John Killah’s and Vanek’s (first) terms, things were rough.

With the election of a new HQ last month, things have become noticeably better. Relations between CoT HQ and the United States are excellent, and the relations between CoT and TWO are strained. The Circle of Trust is one step closer to being completely independent.

I believe in the Circle of Trust.

I am thankful for the ATO help that nations like Mexico and Macedonia have given to us. Their actions speak volumes, they took a chance on a nation that they had been at war with.

I know that if TWO ever finds their courage and attacks us, that CoT will be at our side, fighting to stop any invasion. I hope it doesn’t come to that and part of me doesn’t think it will. Mostly because TWO is a giant sack of vaginas.
I would much rather spend the weeks and months fighting for Bulgaria against Serbia, but if push comes to shove, I know CoT will be there for us.

What do you think about the Circle of Trust?

Here's hoping they do stand by us. This has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, to which, as wrong as it feels, I can only say "You were right." The most positive thing I can say about CoT is "Thank God it's not TWO." Now can we get all of CoT members to withdraw their MPPs with the likes of Serbia?

Cubby 1,994 jour, 13:26

...lest this become a worldwide Circle Jerk.

Israel Stevens
Israel Stevens 1,994 jour, 13:27

It's supposed to be happening. Per the charter, it is illegal to have a MPP with an enemy nation. The BG/Serbia war makes Serbia an enemy.

Theoretically, at the end of the month, Serbia won't have CoT MPPs.

And if you read your previous articles and notice how strong your words were, you will come to conclusion that this here is simply a propaganda article, like those before were, and we might, not that far in the future, go in some other direction... well played at least. : )

We'll always go in another direction in the future. This game changes faster than the seasons. That's no reason to do nothing. CoT was a good decision, objectively speaking.

actually the change recently seems slow doesn't it?

You know you talk very big for someone that would rather try and PTO us than fight us on the battlefield. Why don't you go back to Serbia and fight like a man?

Lord Haldir
Lord Haldir 1,995 jour, 14:12

I was on the battlefield every time. I will be each time. Do you? You should know that CS is not important, i can fight against you no matter where i am.

Bucephalus92 1,995 jour, 15:25

You (unsurprisingly) have missed the gist of my argument. Your (and your countrymens) American CS shows that you are unwilling to face us in a fair fight, but would rather help RGR in his PTO, and thus attack us from within. Its not really a big issue, I mean its not like anyone expects a Serb to act with honour.

''EDEN was in the middle of their year long death throes (which finally ended), so they weren’t an option.''

You know what's funny about that. sure it did happen, but people kept chanting that for the past 3 years. I'm amazed at how much they were wrong. Saying that an alliance will fall is a no brainer, much like saying Winter is coming... of course it is!

Oh well, but yes indeed, CoT was the only option possible. Any other was defacto compromised throught many slumps in FA throught various disastrous administration. And now we are back to the bipolar world that has always been the rule of erepublik, simply because of game mechanics.

But I'll give you something, things will now be definetly quite more interesting as the card are being reshuffled and that people have a serious amount of scores to settle. We were somewhat in a stalemate due to the enormous amount of NAP signed around the world. Now all those are no longer valid or usefull since the threats and opportunity of each country have changed.

Also, thanks for publishing this. It's been a difficult handful of months trying to get the nation on board with this direction, but I think we're finally in a spot where people can see the wisdom in this.

I'm really glad we were able to see far enough into the future to make the right moves at the right time. It would be awful if we were just now scrambling to pick up the pieces and figure out where we're going.

Inwegen 1,995 jour, 18:28

I prefer a sack of vaginas. Just sayin.
