Declaration of War

Post by Jonas »

The newly appointed Imperial Chancellor, Joseph Myksos, enters the Assembly, followed by an orchestra. When reaching the lectern which overlooks the whole conference room, he gives a subtle sign to the conductor to start playing.



"Comrades!
People of Jingdao!

Today I stand before you in the knowledge that many of you will soon leave behind the homes you were born in and lived in for whole your life. This I don't say without a good reason. Because I know for certain that when His Heavenly Majesty and His Government calls upon its people to rise up against the devils and evil which slowly surround us as the predators that they are, you will do so. To protect the Realm. To protect the home you leave behind.

There will be no doubt in your mind. There will be no fear. There will only be the courage and the knowledge that if you die - and this is a given for several of you - you will be welcomed with open arms by Germania Herself and the certainty that you will have protected your fellow men.

When you go to the battlefield, remember that your effort will stop the war machine and devious plans of our monstrous enemies. Remember that we strike today - yes, I said today - to avoid a future in which our Empire would be attacked and plunged into war from all sides. We need to seize the initiative. We are seizing it now. We will weaken the enemies. We will destroy them. We will purify Micras... step by step. Whatever it takes, whatever the time it takes, whatever the sacrifices we have to make to be victorious.
This war will be the cornerstone of a new future. A future in which you all will aid with the construction of a Heavenly and Harmonious Micras, free from the oppression of feudal regimes.

In the days to come the Jingdaoese peoples will for their own safety and for the good of all walk together side by side in majesty, harmony and in peace. And when we look back on this glorious day, let us hope that we can hold our head high and say to our children: this was our finest hour."

Comrades,

I present to you the Declaration of War and would like our Assembly to do an emergency vote on this.
DECLARATION OF WAR
ON CONSTANCIA


By the grace of Cato, Germania and Sisera, the Emperor of Jingdao, Sacred Heavenly Light, seated on the throne occupied by the same dynasty from time immemorial, enjoin upon ye, Our loyal and brave subjects:

We hereby declare War on the Kingdom of Constancia. The men and officers of Our Army and Navy shall do their utmost in prosecuting the war. Our public servants of various departments shall perform faithfully and diligently their respective duties; the entire nation with a united will shall mobilize their total strength so that nothing will miscarry in the attainment of Our war aims.

To ensure the stability of Apollonia and to contribute to harmonious world peace is the far-sighted policy which was formulated by Our Great Illustrious Sisera and Our Great Imperial Heavenly Light succeeding Her, and which We lay constantly to heart. To cultivate friendship among nations and to enjoy prosperity in common with all nations, has always been the guiding principle of Our Empire's foreign policy. It has been truly unavoidable and far from Our wishes that Our Empire has been brought to cross swords with Constancia. Much time has passed since our acquisition of Kildare and the surrounding Apollonian lands. Eager for the realization of their inordinate ambition to dominate the Apollonian continent, several nations, giving support to the rebellious and terrorist groups, have aggravated the disturbances in our continent. Moreover those nations have increased military preparations on all sides of Our Empire to challenge Us. They have obstructed by every means Our peaceful commerce and finally resorted to a direct severance of economic relations, menacing gravely the existence of Our Empire. Patiently have We waited and long have We endured, in the hope that Our government might retrieve the situation in peace. But Our adversaries, showing not the least spirit of conciliation, have unduly delayed a settlement; and in the meantime they have intensified the economic and political pressure to compel thereby Our Empire to submission. This trend of affairs, would, if left unchecked, not only nullify Our Empire's efforts of many daors for the sake of the stabilization and purification of Apollonia, but also endanger the very existence of Our nation. The situation being such as it is, Our Empire, for its existence and self-defense has no other recourse but to appeal to arms and to crush every obstacle in its path.
Constancia, small but nonetheless one more nation which attempts to threaten our sovereignty, must be crushed to preserve world peace and serve as an example towards other Adversaries.

The hallowed spirits of Our Imperial Ancestors guarding Us from above, We rely upon the loyalty and courage of Our subjects in Our confident expectation that the task bequeathed by Our forefathers will be carried forward and that the sources of evil will be speedily eradicated and an enduring peace immutably established in Apollonia, preserving thereby the glory of Our Empire.


Signed by the Heavenly Light, the Kattei Emperor, in concordance with the Imperial Assembly and His Government.

"Comrades, the current state of affairs has made certain things very clear. We have tried to fight fair and square, but the enemy has confirmed what we have always thought: the presence of ESB-Jörmungandr Group and Athlon on the battlefield has proven a worldwide conspiracy against our Empire! Both the Shiretits as Natopians are actively fighting a war against us. Winning this war will no longer be merely a strategic victory, in which we have destroyed one of the chains which the imperialists wants to put around our neck, but will also be a victory against those greapowers who are looking to us with their greedy eyes.
Reports and rumours of Tyrenians surrendering to the Constancians can only mean one things: that the conspiracy against us and the Heavenly Light has progressed further than we thought. Our democratic nation, guided by its enlightened and Heavenly Emperor, is threatened by the enemy from within. We have been too lenient towards the people and have allowed the enemies to bring doubt into the minds of some our citizens' minds.

I call upon every Jingdaoese: report to your closest Tegong agent the people who speak bad about this patriotic war, go to work and produce the materials necessary for the war effort and most importantly: fight! Fight against the enemies of the State!"

It griefs me that the Chancellor would think that Tyrenian forces would be disloyal to the Empire, and has jumped to conclusions way too soon. It has become clear that these soldiers were in fact trained members of the Gladio forces, a secret branch of the Tyrenian navy, who were on a suicide mission. Instead of being the subject of scrutiny, these six men should be held in esteem as Heroes of the Empire. We trust that the Chancellor will join us in praising these men, in light of this new information.

"Comrade, I thank you for the clarification. But as you very well know, the speech I held some moments ago was to convince any potential traitor among our midst that there were really soldiers among our ranks who would surrender. They seem to have truly believed this and contacted their home country with this news. Some spies have been caught and brought into custody - awaiting a very painful excecution). The mission of our courageous soldiers seem to have been a success on all fronts."
