The Alliance

Recommended Posts

To: Nations of Europa

From: The Holy Confederacy of Vanarambaion

 

In light of recent events, we have concluded a treaty with the The Sublime Principate of Akiiryu and The Allied States of Europtima to protect our joint national interests. This is not meant to be a treaty organization, but if nations would like to sign it, they must petition all three current members of the organization, and the vote to bring you into the organization must be unanimous among the three afore-mentioned nations.

 

 

 

 

 

The Parties to this Treaty,

 

Reaffirming their desire to live in peace with all governments, and desiring to strengthen the fabric of peace in the Europa region,

 

Desiring to declare publicly and formally their common determination to defend themselves against external armed attack so that no potential aggressor could be under the illusion that either of them stands alone in the Europa region,

 

Desiring further to strengthen their efforts for collective defense for the preservation of peace and security pending the development of a more comprehensive and effective system of regional security in the Europa region,

 

Have agreed as follows:

 

Article 1

The Parties undertake to settle any international disputes in which they may be involved by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security and justice are not endangered and to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force in any manner inconsistent with international law.

 

Article 2

The Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened by external armed attack. Separately and jointly, by self-help and mutual aid, the Parties will maintain and develop appropriate means to deter armed attack and will take suitable measures in consultation and agreement to implement this Treaty and to further its purposes.

 

Article 3

Each Party recognizes that an armed attack in the Europa region on any of the Parties in territories now under their respective administrative control, or hereafter recognized by one of the Parties as lawfully brought under the administrative control of the other, would be dangerous to its own peace and safety and declares that it would act to meet the common danger in accordance with its constitutional processes.

 

Article 4

The Sublime Principate of Akiiryu, and the Holy Confederacy of Vanarambaion and the Allied States of Europtima accept, the right to dispose Akiiryan, Vanarambaion, and Europtiman land, air and sea forces in and about the territory of both countries as determined by mutual agreement.

 

Article 5

This Treaty shall be ratified by the Holy Confederacy of Vanarambaion, the Sublime Principate of Akiiryu and the Allied States of Europtima in accordance with their respective constitutional processes and will come into force when instruments of ratification thereof have been exchanged by them in Thule.

 

Article 6

This Treaty shall remain in force indefinately. Any party may terminate their participation in the treaty one year after notice has been given to the other Parties.

 

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF the undersigned plenipotentiaries have signed this Treaty.

 

Done in duplicate in Thule, in the Akiiryan, Vanarambaion, and Europtiman languages, this third day of June, 2005.

 

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Understanding:

It is the understanding of the all parties that no party is obligated, under Article 3 of the above Treaty, to come to the aid of the others except in case of an external armed attack against such party; nor shall anything in the present Treaty be construed as requiring any party to give assistance to the others except in the event of an armed attack against territory which has been recognized by the parties or lawfully brought under the administrative control of a party.

Didn't you listen to Mongol-Swedes warning? If this factionalism doesn't end we will all die in a horrible world war. Do you want that on your conscience?

With dragons and UFOs invading our skies, nations going to the brink of war to alleviate population problems, the complete inability of certain nations to see anything done by the other side to be just as innocent as it seems on its face, I feel quite content having a few nations at my back. I am comfortable with this mutual defense treaty on my conscience, yes.

Well, you've dhoomed us all now, Van. Hope it was worth it.

 

OOC: Hey, i'm just playing to character! Europtima said i was too aggressive, so now i'm really playing it laugh.gif

OOC: Don't worry, I'm cool with it. It seems that I've been being the overconfident military-dominated country in the world (the RL US). I'm cool with that, go ahead, be aggressive. cool.gif

 

IC: As they say, it takes two to tango, Karthenia. A mutual defense treaty in and of itself does not spell the end of the world. It is only if that alliance has to be activated that dangerous circumstances ensue. So, unless you are declaring war on any of the three signatories, there is no need to worry. You can also see that you were invited equally with every other nation in the world to petition to be a signatory. If there is any hostility because of this treaty, it will have to come from you, because it does not come from us.

OOC: oh yeah!

 

IC:

In all realism, this is an anti-Karthenia treaty and you know it.

1) It contains Akiiryu, who we have long standing bad relations with since the Tamurin Civil War, and whom we almost fought over the blockade

2) It contains Europtima, who recently slandered us, and expressed their distaste at our way of life.

3)Our relations with the Holy Confederacy haven't been great either.

 

If we applied to join, we wouldn't get in anyway, so it isn't open to all Europa's nations, only the ones you like. And are you seriously saying that if we were a member you would fight our corner, considering our joint histories?

If you were a member we would fight for you as tenaciously as we have fought for each other recently. Perhaps joining this alliance is not the first step in repairing the damage you acknowledged earlier, but eventually everyone is capapble of joining this alliance, with a unanimous vote of the three signatories. However, who is it that is dragging up the past now? Anti-Karthenian alliance? Please. We have better things to do then worry about where the 157-carrier-phantom-Karthenian fleet is.

 

As to our allies, I will not speak for them. It is there job to speak for themselves, and as you have not stated your intention to join, if such an intention exists, then there is really nothing for us to discuss as an alliance.

It will be taken under advisement and discussed with the other signatories. Thank you for your prompt and non-aggressive stance to this alliance. It is most appreciated.

If you want a less aggressive one, here it comes

 

To the Signatories

From Karthenia

 

We would like to apply for membership in your Alliance, as we feel it may be a step towards understanding between our nations, and towards dispelling the ghosts of the past.

Due to the wanton bloodlust shown in combatting their own citizens, and the continued practice of the desecration of the corpses of the dead, Vanarambaion feels that now would be an inappropriate time to discuss the admittance of Karthenia to the Alliance. Perhaps, if things change in the future the Alliance will reconsider the application of Karthenia, but for the time being our objection stands, and Karthenia will not become a member of this alliance.

OOC: Awwwww, come on Van, i only killed them a little bit, i promise not to do it again laugh.gif

 

 

Besides, you said you would come in and deal with it, if i didn't...

OOC: Yeah, I said I'd deal with it. I didn't say I'd kill all of them, nearly to a man, and then crucify them...

 

You seem to be kinda fond of crucifixions, don't you?

 

I thought I was being reasonable and open-minded saying that we would reconsider in the future, considering your past. But remember, Akiiryu and Europtima still haven't chimed in. If you really want in, there are some bridges to repair.

Yeah, especially as my position in the EPA is about to become tenuous...we have effectively closed all relations with communist Free-Ekainak.

 

And we may even apologise for what happened in the Tamurin Civil War...

We appreciate your move towards peace with our three nations, but do not feel safe in an alliance with a nation that makes false accusations against the Europtimitian government. Parliament votes a unanimous nay against Karthenia joining.

 

OOC: Sorry guys, haven't been keeping up too well. Karthenia, you are too agressive and irritating IC, but I don't dislike you. Plus, it makes for some b*tchin' debates biggrin.gif
