RE: The Refugee Incident

"We cannot take fault for or apologize for actions that are not the actions of our own Government. We did not want a war with Rockport or with Neo Japan and did not choose to take sides in this conflict. While we greatly grieve the losses that have been afflicted upon the Neo Japanese people, it was not our place to intervene in this conflict. It was your leaders who chose to ignore the ultimatum given you by the leadership of Rockport. Your naval leader's decisions that resulted in that ultimatum's clearly stated intentions not being met. Your naval leader's actions that left 3 of your ships and their crews in the bottom of our bays. We had no treaty for your protection or your defense, only for your travel in our and friendship and Rockport had also been our friend in the past. Your naval leaders tried to use our people and our domain to broker a deal and to protect them from harm. You took our harbor hostage. Something which would cause us to appear to be taking sides, to appear to be supporting you over Rockport. Your navy did not respect our neutrality in this action although you were welcome in our ports. Because of this, yes, you lost ships and lives.. much more than we did as our surface harbors are much less more important than those of traditional nations, but if they had been.. your navy would have caused us tremendous damage and casualties from their actions where we bore no responsibility to pull your navy's $@! out of a fire it had created. If this had happened, we would have been in much more dire diplomatic straights than now, but it is because we in fact grieve your losses as we saw firsthand the lives lost in our bay.. that we are not. Your people have paid enough for your naval leader's poor choices. Your naval leaders should have complied when they had the chance, instead of expecting us to miraculously rescue them from a situation they had allowed to be created and could have defused. It was their stubbornness and pride which cost them their lives. We have no regrets.. save for allowing you to use our waterways. We hereby disband the freedom of transit clause from the friendship treaty although all other clauses of that treaty will be upheld. Perhaps next time you will respect the integrity of a neutral port." Department of the Chairman press release.

Our people were illegally attacked. They sought diplomatic means and hoped that the Dragon Empire, being a connecting point between Rockport and ourselves, would step up and perhaps mediate. Instead, our fleet is slaughtered while you watched (perhaps rightfully so, that discussion is seperate), and now you punish us, US, who have done nothing to deserve your ire, for the aggression of Rockport armed forces. Our entire purpose was transit, yet you see fit to relieve us of that right.

3. Signatories of this treaty grant freedom of military movement through their sovereign domains so long as the intent is solely transit.

And yet Rockports forces came in in clear violation. No more. We hereby serve notice of our cancellation of this treaty. It is clear we have falsely placed our trust in the Dragon Empire

"That restricts him. It doesn't mean I cannot let him through for any other reason. It empowers him to do so at any time so long as his intent is peaceful. I may permit him or you to do more if I wish. The objective is to empower the other signatory, not limit the power of the control of the domain of national waters by the owners. That is obvious by the way it's written. I have no where given up my right to allow transit for any other reason. I have only sacrificed my right to deny transit for non-hostile reasons. You're right, in theory, I could have held Rockport in violation of his old treaty which he was in the process of canceling, but I've chosen not to as it is not my intent to have hostile relations with an old friend."

"We did attempt to mediate, you chose to ignore the ultimatum you were given. Your sailors paid the ultimate price. Sorry that it happened this way, but there was little we could do about it when the decisions are in the hands of other governments."

Twist your words how you will. Its in black and white and written right on the paper. We have nothing more to say on the matter. What's done is done, and DE no longer has our trust.

"We had no clause of protection.. no clause of defense or aggression. We only had our good will."

Just a reminder to NeoJapan that your citizens have been expelled from Boomtown and all their monetary and physical assets have been confiscated for auction to compensate the families of the ex-DKT nationals that NeoJapan saw fit to murder with their foolhardy tactics.

Thus far we've collected a total of 18 dollars.

More to follow.

OOC: We've already established, and you supported this notion so no point crying foul now, that a leader doesn't have absolute control over all of his citizens all of the time. You were all up in arms about this sort of thing with the trial and the 12 mopes LVN had. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

OC: Ah, an excellent point. Perfectly logical. I won't state my IC reactions to all this here, as I already did in the thread where it happened.
