To be crystal clear, Lex Quintus is one of my dearest friends in this game, as a former Raging Philosopher Kings squadmate in GOONS, as a co-founder of Prototype, and as a general cohort in Kashmir's government. It goes without saying that I have him and his best intentions in mind and hope, whether or not he's presently active, that his nation not be subject of hostile actions. It's a bit of a grey area here, admittedly, since Kashmir doesn't generally extend protection to unaligned nations (and not retroactively) unless it's awarded and advertised in alliance/nation bios.
That latter point is irrelevant however given COBRA, TIE, Sellswords, OC, and SRA announced protection of our membership while we were in the process of regrouping. Those who have since rejoined Kashmir proper I would of course no longer consider privvy to this protection; those who have not - namely (and possibly only?) Lex Quintus - naturally retain protection. That much is clear and I, as a formerly/currently voracious raider myself, would expect alliances to see to it that protected nations aren't raided by their memberships and their protectorates and if they are that offenders are held accountable. That's what COBRA is asking for here.
We have two disgusting interactions from CLAWS (from Claude and from veracity) directed towards an underage female, and two raids (from veracity and from WS) on nations protected by COBRA, TIE, Sellswords, OC, and SRA. A pattern emerges, eh?
