I was very glad to see the NATO/TFD/GUN surrender primarily because, when I first got into the peace talks, one of the alliances who entered rather aggressively against NATO/TFD/GUN was demanding reps. When asked why, their response was, quite verbatim, "LOL because we're on the winning side." Shame on you, WAPA. That notion represents what we as a community are constantly spouting off about. You know, that whole mindless oppression or whatever. Just because you're on the winning side doesn't mean you deserve reparations. Sure, you may have gotten decimated, but you did enter aggressively, and the whole point of reparations is to pay back the damage done to a defending party.
I'm not saying I don't appreciate you coming in on our side, but the fact remains that you don't deserve reparations because you're winning. An alliance should get them as an apology for being attacked so maliciously, and as an aggressive party (by way of your declarations), that's not you.
