Announcement #1: Declaration of Support
Our allies, the Grand Global Alliance, now find themselves embroiled in a war. We support the rationale behind this war, and will support our allies in their prosecution of it. While we will not be directly engaging in the assault (for the moment), we stand prepared to give answer to any alliance that takes this opportunity to harm our Green friends.
Article III - Nacho Cheese
If someone tries to take a piece out of any part of the cheese the rest of the cheese needs to step up and let that person know it isn't their cheese to take a piece out of. The Grand Global Alliance and the Orange Defense Network agree to defend one another from outsiders attempting to take a piece out of either of the two alliances and do so in a prompt fashion.
Any alliance engaging the GGA, outside of their initial target, shall burn in the fiery bowels of a most orange-y Nacho Cheese.
Announcement #2: Treaty Cancellation
Our relationship with the New Polar Order has always been strong and deep. We have been dearest friends in good times and bad. While this is true, we have only shared a treaty for a minority of that time. Forged in the fires of the Unjust War, the Orange Ice Lollies Pact was a consummation of a relationship better felt than told.
In the past few months, our relationship with the New Polar Order has become unbalanced. The decisions of the Polar Emperor have had an undue amount of influence upon the policy and sovereignty of the Orange Defense Network. While the departure of Honorary ODNer Electron Sponge helped this situation significantly, we have come to realize that our current arrangement is untenable. The Orange Defense Network believes that our treaty with Polaris prevents it from fulfilling its obligations to its other allies, and to its team sphere.
Because of this, it is with our deepest regret that we must cancel the Orange Ice Lollies Pact. Emperor Almighty Grub was notified of this decision in private and (cognizant of the circumstances) has voluntarily waived the 72 hour "cool down" clause in a most gracious manner.
It is our sincerest hope that the New Polar Order will be able to correct itself, and that our now informal relationship can once again be formalized in the future. Until that point, the destiny of the Orange Defense Network cannot be bound to the actions of Polaris.
ODN Secretary General XVIII
