New Haudenosaunee Confederacy Condemns The North Pacific

After a lengthy argument on Saturday, the New Haudenosaunee Confederacy finally snapped and introduced a WA proposal condemning The North Pacific. Toshavo had refused him entry into the North Pacific Olympic Games since he had included profanity in the names of his athletes. NHC retorted by calling him "racist" and that his culture was being "disrespected". This conflict quickly grew, with the majority of the RMB siding with Toshavo and trying to explain to him that his athletes' names were an OOC matter. NHC continued stubbornly refusing to change his athletes' names and stated that "Myfriendsaregay" was a common last name in the state of New York, where he lives. He also stated that he had a military of over 56 million, and threatened to invade Toshavo, while not realizing that the argument was OOC, or that he had a military spending static of 156, which caps his military at around 3 million, as according to the Treaty on Preventing Godmodding. Eventually, the conflict became enough for him and he decamped to The South Pacific, and wrote the condemnation. An analysis of the condemnation presented to NHC by Kyoki Chudoku is as follows:

I seriously recommend taking a look at the forum thread for the SC if possible.

Anyway, I'm now going to break down the proposal because, well, I'm mentioned in it and therefore feel obligated to do so even though I am doubtful there is much of a point. Bold is quotes from the proposal.

Recognizing that the nations of the North Pacific aren't at all friendly of diplomatic with each other

Some are. For example, I have very positive relations with my allies.

Noting that the North Pacific Winter Olympics are an upcoming event,

Not really condemnation material but at least factually correct.

Noting that the New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wasn't aloud to compete due to their nation's culture

I have to say, it's allowed. Additionally, no, the reason for that was primarily OOC. Also absolutely nowhere was this aspect of culture mentioned until today to my awareness.

[nation]Understanding that the nations of the North Pacific (generally) don't believe that the opinions and voices of some nations don't matter (including the New Haudenosaunee Confederacy and Chillestia)
[/nation]
Technically you used a double negative and therefore are saying we do believe they matter, but that is besides the point. It is true there are some people who's voices are perceived as less important than others. Spammers, for example. Trolls, for example. Also it's ironic you use Chillestia as an example, a nation who you previously tried to condemn and have yourself ignored the voice of by occupying them for some time.

[nation]Noting that some nations of the North Pacific claim that the region has strong democracy, even though there are some non-democratic nations (including Kyoki Chudoku)
[/nation]
The region claims democracy in its OOC government. Nowhere does it say "every nation in TNP is a democracy" or "you may only RP as democratic nations in TNP".

Understanding that the nations of the North Pacific don't allow citiznes of any nations to have fun (including themselves),

I cannot even muster the energy to explain how utterly incorrect that is.

Noting that the nations of the North Pacific don't appreciate certain cultures (including the New Haudenosaunee Confederacy),

I'm not sure whether to take that ICly or OOCly. IC, yes true. OOC, perhaps we do dislike some cultures that are perceived as potentially offensive to us.

Condemnation is something reserved for regions and nations that have made a huge impact. Infamous raiders and the absolute best at RPing as villainous nations. Please refrain from trying to condemn everything and everyone you have a negative opinion of. It won't work.

NHC has a history of writing proposals with trivial reasons. He also reported Western Vapia to the NS mods for harassment. One can see the full proposal with its GenSec status here.

Akharan Olympic Team Dies In Plane Crash
FRANSHOV - Many of the 92 dead when a Akharan passenger jet crashed onto the Franshov airport tarmac Saturday. Many were athletes of Akharan Olympic team, as they were flying to Toshavo for the Winter Olympics.

A Lahos Airlines passenger jet traveling from Lahos, Akhara crashed while landing Saturday at Franshov International Airport, smashed into pieces and caught fire, killing almost all of the athletes on board.

Smoke billowed out of holes in the fuselage of the Boeing 787 on Saturday afternoon as firefighters rushed to douse the wreckage and passengers scrambled to safety down inflated escape chutes. The plane’s tail, landing gear and one of its engines were ripped off.

“It hit with its nose , spun down the runway, and plumeted,” said one witness, Vasily Gagarich 32. Despite incredible damage to the plane, left dismembered and scarred, with large chunks of its body burned away, some reportedly were still climbing out the wreckage.

No word yet on the rest of the athletic team on the flight were reported. Though as many 92 people were on board, and 80 of them were athletes.

The Akharan state has yet to make a statement on the incident. Though, the International Olympic Group were informed, hours after the crash.

The president of the IOG, an Akharan, says "I mourned when I heard the news. This is the worst time I can talk, but I must say this to everyone... Keep your spirits up, and pray... pray for their safety.

Prime Minsiter Artyom Lesnoft took this situation on a live broadcast from the capital. Saying "I am in despair... It is incredibly hearthbreaking. To the Akharan people and the world, let us all give a moment of silence to those who were lost"

A chilling 30 seconds of silence elapsed, and the broadcast ended.

The Ministry of Transport reported on the incident, saying it did know the cause of the crash at first, and the why it went down. The investigators of the Transport Ministry, after 3 hours led to no conlusion but a statement than anything. Minister Anton Sidorov told the National Investigation Agency (NIA) that the plane had been down due to a mechinical error.

Reports are told that the ATC tower had lost contact with 881 and that the pilots did not maintain instructions. The GPWS was not operative during most of the flight, tells ATC, Yegor Kruschev. "It did not work correctly, therefore the pilots had manually operate the aircraft."

"We also lost frequency with the aircraft when it entered the airspace." Though the Airport's monitors track if any aircraft are lost, some tell us that they shut off, interestingly. Though still, a mechinical error or pilot error, many blame on the air traffic controllers for "not doing their jobs" And that they were the cause of the miscommunication.

The recorded conversation of the flight and the tower is yet to be released, as well as a black box transcript (If recovered)

The aircraft crashed on runway 32, bouncing and spininng into a tarmac sign. The plane slid off to the grass, and the fire caught with it.

Many witnessed the crash, as it was close to the airport terminals. The airport currently is on lockdown, and terminal C, is evacuating.

No reports on the condition of the aircraft as of now.•

Aldion Reminisces on the Aldion-Radicaster War

Communism. Capitalism. Both are systems that tear nations apart, and we were shown a prime example just recently between Radicaster and Aldion.

The cause of the war is speculated heavily, many believe it was a war for expansion, while other believe it was a war for ideological purposes. What we're certain about is that both sides weren't the best of friends.
The Aldionians were first to strike, preforming bombing raids on Radicaster's eastern coastline, Radicastrian Air Forces retaliated by preforming many air raids on the incoming Aldionian fleet. Aldionian high officials planned an amphibious assault on Blackwind Bay, which would establish a foothold in southern Radicaster, Field Marshal Gabe Willis told us "We originally planned an amphibious assault on the western coast, but due to the bad weather and the amount of civilian trade ships, it would be impossible to travel such a distance with large amounts of infantry". Aldionian Marines stormed the beached, coming under heavy fire from the entrenched Radicastrian forces, thousands of Aldionian troops were mowed down by enemy machine gun fire before even leaving their landing crafts. A Radicastrian soldier described the sight as "A complete massacre", 36,000 Aldionians would die before the beach was successfully capture. The battle is known as "The battle for Blackwind".

As Aldionian forces established a forward operating base, the Radicastrian 1st, 4th and 8th Mechanized Regiments pushed forward for a counter attack. Aldionian supplies were coming in at a steady rate as they pushed forward the 10th Armoured Division and they encounter the enemy 8th Mechanized Division. A battle erupts and the Aldionians are able to push back the Radicastrian assault. Aldionian forces push through many kilometers of Radicastrian territory before digging in, meanwhile the Aldionian Navy finally makes it's way to eastern Radicaster. Another amphibious assault is carried out but enemy resistance is far less then the last one.
A few days later, Toshavo designs a treaty, after many days of negotiation, both sides come to an agreement, ending the war. Aldion would annex southern Radicaster but would have to pay 60% of damage caused to Radicaster.
The war took over 375,000 lives and ended in an Aldionian victory, but at what cost?•

Democratic Rebels in Hardonius

[box]
The Empire of Hardonius, a nation that prides itself on being a powerful absolute monarchy, is experiencing a cultural and political revolution. A group, known as the Agerico, have been fighting the authoritarian government for days. The movement has inspired others to fight for democracy. While the rebels are greatly outnumbered in size and power, the group refuses to give up. An Atheenian reporter was able to talk to an Agerico member. The interviewee said, “even though we are technologically outnumbered, our spirits are up. We know we have a reason to fight. Plus, this will inspire future generations to rise up and challenge oppressive regimes”. Over the week, the rebels have been pinned. With the government control of the Hardonius coast, all hope was seemingly lost.

However, an ally of Hardonius, Atheenos, has decided to step in. The Second Republic of Atheenos, a representative democracy has given aid and soldiers to end the Hardonius empire. The reasoning for this is to “uphold democratic values and civil rights in the world,” as said by the Secretary of Defense Jeremy Null. The nation has promised to militarily and financially support the Agerico. It has been rumored that the Atheenos has sent B-2 Spirit Bombers and F-15E fighter jets for air superiority. Currently, a total of five Atheenian Cruisers and Destroyers have begun a conflict in the Mouth of Osea. The bloody conflict has caused heavy casualties on both sides. USS New York vessels have also arrived, to send soldiers into the coast. The Hardonius troops have successfully ambushed many of the troops, though.

On the financial side of the conflict, Atheenos has sent ten million Atheenian Dollars to the rebels. It has been confirmed that the group has obtained the money. Another Agerico member decided to weigh in on the help from Atheenos. He said, “we greatly appreciate the Second Republic’s help. We understand that Hardonius and Atheenos have close ties, due to both of them being in the North Pacific Defense Alliance”. Many national leaders have speculated that this would cause a rift in relations between the two countries. However, both President Ladde and Emperor Nikolus Makyus have been on record saying that both nations will continue positive relations after the conflict. Neither nation considers this a war between each other. As the war wages on, more information will be released.•

Communistic Confederation Collapses

CICS: No More?
A relatively recent confederation, the CICS, has been officially disbanded. The union, known as the Confederation of International Communist States (CICS for short) consisted on uniting many “communist” nations under a single flag and ideology. The creation of the confederation was to solidify the before mentioned political and economic ideology. It successfully was able to do its job. The nations that were in the CICS included Puczovska, Itallitopia, Xystopia, and South Armatas. The leader, Puczovska, was the nation to disband it.

Due to Puczovska being a part of the arguably most powerful alliance, Hotel Lala, the CICS has infringed on the rules. The Sanada Clan has stated that it “didn’t align with HL’s creed”. So far, there has been little backlash for this decision, nor have any apparent consequences occurred. Even though the confederation no longer exists, “communism” will continue to run as it had before. Every nation that was a part of the Confederation of InternationalCommunist States is still “communist”.•

Interview With Siwale, Our Vice Delegate

Hong Kong Empire: Do you have anything planned for your term as Vice Delegate? Any Reforms?

Siwale: My plan is mainly to continue doing what I have been doing: raising endorsement counts, increasing SC activity, and keeping the office running efficiently (staying on top of citizenship checks, SC applications, and other regional security concerns). I would also like to organize another event similar to TNP for #1, but I'm not sure when that will be exactly.

Hong Kong Empire: Do you believe that the Vice Delegate should work on things closely with the Delegate or stay more separate?

Siwale: I think the government functions more effectively when the VD and Delegate are working together. There is nothing wrong with having a working relationship between the VD and Delegate as long as it does not negatively impact either office's ability to perform their duties.
