We extended a hand of friendship to our historical rival. We've never done anything remotely like that in the past, so that was a huge change for us. Perhaps you misunderstood people when they said we wanted to do something different. Surely you didn't think we had an idea to radically change the nature of this world. That is laughable.
Also, I was being cute and for good reason. You acted as if you had forseen the polar-top treaty before the two alliances had even considered the idea. It's easy to say you've seen something coming after the fact, try and predict something radical before it happens and people might not mock you.
