1) It's "throes", not throws

2) Tactic for the weak? It's called total war. Welcome to the big leagues son.

FAN is a pretty small-market team in this league then.

I daresay, you'll be paying for it.

You took the context of what I was saying and completely flipped the meaning of it. I said that you don't contribute to the world dynamic. Which is true. You don't. You will admit to this. You admitted to it with this thread.

That is completely different than strategies to winning a war against you. We fight to win. So even if you are politically irrelevant, you still [s]have[/s] had 5 million NS to your alliance. Can you see how that is a completely different discussion?

Oh yes. How could I forget.

The thing I love about FAN is that you know they are [b]never[/b] going to change. They will always be the same awesome alliance they were when they got here.


At this point I don't think anyone can claim to be as resilient as FAN, except maybe Polar. So yeah, I'm gonna put my bets on mpol.
[/quote]

What are you betting? I want to know what to ask for from you when I am still there, broken or whole.. pothole or giant. At least this is one victory I would be guaranteed. I would rule a cinder just to defy your bet. Mpol could be there to witness it if he keeps his part of the promise. We could then do 3 way geopolitics and rule as Bob's only 3 remaining powers.

We could also then reminisce of times of grandeur and those times we had to ground attack in 15 feet of snow up a hill, both ways.. and the nukes were so large they melted the polar ice caps resulting in the highest GRL ever recorded.. and the fallout.. oh how it made the snow glow a bright and glossy green across the landscape.

Reminisce of those days when we actually had to be picky about our trade partners instead of just deciding what we were going to produce and the youngns didn't have a lick of sense to organize their own trading rings.

I can see it now.. it will be glorious.. but I predict the other two of you would rather suicide rather than sit with me around a campfire and singing cumbaya, thus, I will inevitably be the last person on Bob.. if it ends that way.

Hrmm.. and if you win.. which you won't.. I bet a toothbrush. When you're all alone in the world it's the little things that matter. You'll need it.

That's about right. All's fair in love and war son. Daddy shoulda taught you that. By the way, der furher grammar Goebbels wanted me to tell you its throes and not throws. Just for future reference and all.
[/quote]

Der Grammar Furher should also point out that "shoulda" is not a word, and "just for future reference and all" is not a sentance.

But then again, it's kind of silly and childish to resort to goose stepping to Der Grammar Furher's beat while on a message board, eh?

It's because of alliances that push the boundaries of the world through politicking and instigating. Without the "absurdity of contemporary politics", things would have never been interesting.

If you consider the current state of Planet Bob interesting then there really isn't any hope for you. FAN isn't the power it once was. I think that's fairly obvious. While we don't have the physical strength we once had at least we still have our balls. If we did have the strength I would seek to kill every last one of you and break every convention that people hold so dear. But we don't and our attempts to find anyone that isn't content just existing that has that kind of stroke came up empty. At this point all we can do is wait until enough of your die off from the pathetic nature of your existence. As the population of the planet decreases, we get stronger. All we have to do is be patient. Something we are very good at.

I wouldn't take pride of the fact that you get stronger by waiting. You can also actively find people who are interested in helping you with breaking those conventions. It takes literally no skill to wait and get stronger (the majority of Planet BOB already does for example). It's those that get stronger by actually doing something I respect. That said, I respected FAN for what they did in the past to spice things up but I cannot respect you any longer if you really support what you just said.

It's surely not anyone you are tied to. Broaden your horizons a little, I'd say.

NPO and FAN glory days was when they were tied together with a treaty why not an ODP between NPO and FAN after the war? NPO did it with MK why not FAN?

Let us make it happen and shock the world.

Eh, it's nice hyperbole, but there's a limit to how much I can buy. I'm aware of a few groups that would be willing to do what you keep on espousing, but [i]you yourselves have already demonstrated no interest in working with them, even when their policies more closely mirrored your own ideals[/i]. So I take your self-righteousness with a grain of salt, no offense meant.

Declaring on the NPO with Fark isn't about balls, or "changing the face of the game", it's just a tired old story that's been repeated elsewhere so many times by a bunch of different characters, and is likely the only real reason FAN sticks around here.

Grudges are nice and fair game and all that, but dressing it up as something glorious, or honorable, or hell, even exciting is completely misrepresenting the truth of the matter. That's certainly my take, at least.

Declaring on NPO wasn't so much a question of 'why' as it was 'why not'. The 'grudge' is there, but certainly wasn't a determining factor. Can you think of a reason why we should [b]not[/b] be at war? I can't think of one. I agree we don't stand to gain much of anything. We also don't stand to lose much of anything. It's a wash. And I agree that this whole war, and really much of the time before now, is a total yawner. What suffices for tasty drama now wouldn't have made a blip on the radar in years past.

We spent a considerable amount of time and energy in trying to point out to the world that they are living in !@#$. That their treaties and false sense of power in reality makes them weaker. It's like talking to a rock. In the end, people preferred this mind numbing existence to anything that might entail some risk. Maybe someone will step up. When they do I'll join them... or fight against them... whichever makes life !@#$%* for the most amount of people.

As long as we're in agreement that this isn't really all that interesting to watch, then I don't mind agreeing with you on the rest of this stuff either.

I'm all for "why not", after all.

sentance? Really? After that witty and sharp response, you can't even properly spell a word from 3rd grade english? Just stop. Now. Seriously.

This sounds a lot like the things NATO has been saying to itself recently. Glad we are fighting a fitting match. We're in this for a while I think. Good that we can keep it a business type relationship.

Also, Perc., don't be that guy.
