Leet Guy Posted October 7, 2011 Report Share Posted October 7, 2011 [quote name='Legio Frigidum']Article III: Mutual Defense [b]In the signing of this pact, both sides agree to defend and aid one another in times of war [i]when requested by the other signatory alliance[/i].[/b] Should either of the signatory alliances be attacked by another power, the other is required to come to its assistance with its full strength and resources. In the event that outside treaties come into conflict, they will be treated with a case by case basis. To request assistance in a time of war, the alliance which is in need must first send a request to the other signatory alliance. That alliance then has 24 hours, or one day, to fully prepare for the shift from peace to war for maximum war efficiency. If one alliance commits a warranted act of aggression and requests assistance from the other signatory alliance, that alliance is not required to grant the request. However, the other signatory is still highly encouraged to offer their assistance. Let it be known that this treaty provides all signatories with full legal justification to enter a conflict that concerns the other, if they so choose.[/quote] The treaty plainly states that Polar only needs to enter should Legion request such assistance. And given the people they're fighting, it's clear they don't feel they need assistance. I know others may write their MDoAP's to state mandatory military defense when an ally comes under attack (or defense, I don't want this to devolve into an argument about whether Legion is Aggressive or Defensive here), but this treaty plainly states that defense is only required when asked for. The same goes for Invicta and NADC as well.

Both signatories must obey said request for assistance with financial aid and/or military action.[/quote] [quote name='NADC']IV-Mutual Defense In the signing of this pact, both sides agree to defend and aid one another in times of war [b]when requested[/b] by the other signatory alliance.

I'm sure you can spin this to make a comment about how it's a rather lame way to word your treaties if these are your friends you're talking about, but I suggest you look at treaties closer before making yourselves look like idiots as many of you have been in the countless topics this week. I know some of my treaties are based on request as well, but some are instant-mandatory defense too Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
