President Meyer was busy in his office, responding to memos regarding Project "BEXAR" and from the Commander in Chief Holden. He was reviewing memos from the Department of Commerce when it was noticed that the embargo of goods on the UFE, Athens, and others involved in the Rape of Alaska was still very much active. He scratched his forehead and wondered aloud, "I thought those were temporary restrictions...?"

He got on the horn with the head of the Department of Commerce and spoke briefly. The restrictions were removed without a fuss, after years of imposition, and it would again be possible for trade to resume. He sent a note to all involved regarding this. He also mused over the fate of the civilians still kept captive in Athens. It had been two years already. Of course, he knew they were dishonest, and it was an indefinite hold, but it still unsettled him that a handful of his people were hostages in a foreign nation. He'd make a note to contact the Athenians regarding it.

But for now, this brought up another problem. The pan-American defensive bloc to defend against the Red Dawn threat was obsolete. Not only was the legitimacy in doubt, but the need. The Austrians weren't much on his good side anymore, nor were the minors in North America too important. The out-standing question was the relationship between the Federal Republic and the CAS. He began to draft a treaty.

A message was sent to the CAS:
RE: Treaty Restoration
BODY:
Given the state of the Red Dawn treaty, we would like to propose one that nullifies our involvement in it, and establishes on another as direct allies. We're both fellow Americans who stood on the line against expansionist forces and held our own, we survived and are all the better comrades for it.

Please consider this, I'll await your reply. Would San Francisco be a good meeting place?

Regards,

Hermann Meyer
President
Federal Republic of America

RE: Treaty Restoration
BODY:
We too have wondered about the future of the treaty and would be happy to host a meeting in San Fransisco to discuss the future relations of our nations.

When all was said and done, President Meyer was on a plane to San Francisco. He viewed the landscape and the city on his way down, perfectly content with this marvel of human construction. The plane set down and he exited the ramp behind a secret service chap. Off the plane, he was flanked by the guard on his right, and his liaison to Congress on the left.

Hermann tackled Fox's hand and shook it, then headed for the car. As they drove through the city to Fox's office, he took in the sights. "It's quite the beautiful city you have here. The way it sometimes gets in Texas we just might have to trade places, now!" He said with a laugh, and sat through the rest of the ride in silence.

When they entered President Fox's office, Hermann got right to the point. "It's quite obvious that while the threat of leftist expansionism is not entirely over, the treaty binding many old North American nations together is obsolete. I suggest instead we ourselves have a new pact, a general defensive agreement. We in the Federal Republic want to maintain our friendship with our allies in the CAS, and friends in Missouri and Pravus Ingruo, so it only makes sense to extend our relationship with your people. What say you?" He asked, quite hopeful.

Meyer pulled a rather Spartan defense treaty out and offered it to Fox.

I. General defense
a. Any attack on one member of this treaty constitutes an attack on all members of this treaty.

II. Intelligence Sharing
a. The signatories agree to share any information that is relevant to the other signatory. Especially so, when it comes to military plans and details.

III. Cancellation Clause
a. The signatories must announce the cancellation 48 hours prior to when it should end.

"Are there any changes you see that need to be made?"
