The Sub left port immediately, it would be in Pearl Harbor in about a day's time.

OOC: Since this is the most recent thread, I suppose I'll post the finalized ruling here.

1. On the Subject of Maelstorm_Vortex's missiles that started this whole crisis:

Based upon the precedent that the community set for itself when it decided that Sumeragi's submarine would be deemed sunk even though Sumeragi protested that the sub would not have been where the sub was if the technology hadn't worked etc. etc. etc. and by a recent ruling (somewhere >__>), Maelstorm's missiles indeed were fired over the South Pole to Tahoe.

2. On the Subject of BioChem Weapons for all nations involved:

Based upon the recent striking down of MIRV warheads following the new rule about MIRV's, the BioChem Weapon rule goes into immediate effect. All nations will be limited to a maximum of fifty of these weapons at any given time.

3. On the Subject of LeVentNoir's Super cruiser:

See number 1 for the justification. LVN's cruiser remains sunk. I understand that he is updating his naval stats to account for this engineering/something of the like flaw that was pointed out about his ships. The sunken cruiser remains sunk and is stricken from LVN's total number (must be a ship of the equivalent class) until he makes a new one to replace it.

4. On the Subject of Wars:

I'll give cookies to everyone for every week we don't have a war. :v

5. Role Play on this matter is unfrozen. You may all continue (like you all were doing anyways).

IC: Despite the turn being made, the missiles managed to track the Supercruiser, and the carbon nanotube / aerogel construction was sundered under several hundred kilograms of missile, allowing for a crack in the nuclear reactor to form, a disastrous event which allowed pressure to build and release, literally blowing the ship to smithereens.

OOC: Beautifully written!

IC: Reports of successful impacts and video from the cruise missiles on board cameras reached high command, "Praetorians Ex Dragonisia, Flight 1. We register 6 impacts of 20. Video confirms impact on Bow, Midsection, Aft, Super Structure, Hydro Rail, Engineering. Ship has vanished from radar/sonar."

"Wahoooo!"

"Yeaahhhh!"

"Bye bye Bismark!"

The flight barrel rolled and then lined up for landing as the secret and camouflaged airfield's top cover slid open.

Minister Cavanagh recieved word that the Dragonisian delegation was an hour away. Walking to the roof helipad, he and his diplomatic team took a helicopter to the seaward summit of Diamond Head. Landing, he stepped out of the helicopter onto the landing pad. A steel door was set in the cliff face, where he entered and traversed the long underground hallways downward until coming out into a small meeting room. Blast doors opened, revealing long windows giving a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and Honolulu.

The Dragonisian submarine remained underwater, although a hundred miles from the island, a Tahoan frigate took up an escort position, bringing it safely into Pearl Harbor, where it surfaced in a submarine pen. From here, the Dragonisian Authorities took another helicopter up to Diamond Head, arriving in the meeting room about 20 minutes after the Tahoans.

The Dragonisian delegation walked into the conference area at Diamond head, Tom Clark stood tall. He had with him a briefcase of documents and took his seat at the negotiations table after shaking hands with the Tahoe representative, "Good day to you. We've read your proposals on the way over and we do have an interest in settling this conflict. However, it may still be a little bit of time before we know what the alliance wants. Chairman Vortex is in a meeting with them even now."

Tom answered his cell phone. After a few minutes he put forward a proposal. "Here's what we've been instructed to offer per negotiations abroad."

1. A pledge of mutual co-operation in rebuilding after this global disaster to mend old wounds, all damage is to be restored on both sides with whatever means available to all governments. It is as much a sign of grace as strength.

2. Dragonisia is going to, out of sheer good will, contribute 200 billion in treasury bonds to Tahoe at a 6%coupon compounding quarterly that will expire in 1 year to help it recover from the nuclear strikes, this is not out of coercion or fear of Tahoe. Though we respect your strength, we have mustered a massive force around this globe to stand with us. At one time we and Tahoe were friends, we wish to recover that footing.

"As a good will, we'd also like to see a condemnation published by you and your allies against ongoing acts of unilateral aggression throughout the globe including the actions of Greater Aotearoa, which this week fired upon unarmed merchant vessels flying the banner of Neo Taiwan. If you accept these terms, we may even go so far as having the Sovereign Wealth Fund look into purchasing and re-developing lands which have been subjected to the most recent nuclear strikes by your enemies as an investment which would allow your people to benefit from world class facilities once the land has been properly cleaned."

"Hmmm, a generous offer. Under normal conditions, we would demand reparations...yet your offer is more than fair, and as a sign of our goodwill and dedication for peace, we feel reparations would be more damaging than beneficial. The first term is totally agreeable. The second term is, as well, for the most part. Except for these lines: "Though we respect your strength, we have mustered a massive force around this globe to stand with us." There is no reason to mention strength or power, nor turn peace terms into a show of force...for either side."

"As for the conflict with Aotearoa, we no nothing about it. At least I do not, and have not been authorized to issue such a statement about it. Perhaps the Taoiseach will in the future when he has been better briefed on the subject. I assume our intelligence is watching that conflict, but I know little about it."

"Very well, we strike the posturing statements and affirm the treaty. We just wanted you to know we were very serious. We've also prepared a humanitarian mission for Tahoe and would like to take any rare wildlife you may have that are at risk from Radiation exposure back with us to put into the "Ark" we are developing for species endangered by the nuclear war. We'd like to send our teams to UFE and Tahoe. Especially with the most recent language used by the Emperor of the UFE, if they mean it, we think that it is a promising turn about in relations. We also have another request. Even though it is somewhat irrelevant where Dragonisia stands now as a world power, we would like you to consider the allowance of expansions into the Western Hemisphere if there is social and democratic approval.. not by force or coercion, but basically.. if someone in South America wants to join their state to another in another part of the world.. just don't interfere with it unless there is a sincere concern for manipulation being behind the cause of said expansion." (ooc: Not that that will ever happen again given existing merger rules... *le sigh*.)

"By the way, since you have accepted, we have brought a gift..." A man is brought in in shackles and blindfolded. "This is the 4 star general over Dragonisian Missile command who originally commanded the Fafnir brigades. The man has been expelled from the Dragonisian Francoist party. He was an ultra-loyalist to the old Dragon Empire and an extremist. His name is George Andranov. He was also the man who ordered the missiles fired on Tahoe.. we discovered a dialog with Lavo where the man claimed to be the Chairman on our Flash Message communications channels using his National Security clearances. He did something to Tahoe that we did not authorize. This is why, we have not taken responsibility. It was the act of this criminal." One of the guards escorting mister Andranov kicked him forward before the Tahoan delegate and onto his face via his jackboot. "We ask you keep this a secret.. but do with this man, as you will. We've since updated our security protocols to tighten weapons release controls even further even though it reduces the level of redundancy of command in our system.. it is a risk worth taking to assure better controls on our ordinance."

"Basically.. in summary. A pilot error sent one of our weapons platforms about a mile into their EEZ. They blew it apart of course. And then they declared war on us despite an apology, an explanation, and an offer to allow them to be directly involved in the investigation.. Next thing we know, they're blowing apart transport ships belonging to New Taiwan... so, our response was this." He played back a video for the Tahoan representative of the cruise missile strike on the Super Cruiser from Greater Aoteara. "Since then, Greater Aoteara has been disturbingly quiet. We've taken no additional action ourselves, but we are concerned because of the violent history of the nation."

"We would certainly appreciate a humanitarian mission, and perhaps any number of our zoos willbe interested in your Ark. It is not something our government deals with, though." Cavanagh laughed.

"As for our O'Deaghaidh Doctrine...well, it states that a case by case review will be enacted, so I can neither say yes nor no to your request, but can assure you a fair review if that situation arises."

At the site of the Dragonisian general, he scowled..."Take him away" turning back he said, "We thank you most kindly for this. It is the greatest show of goodwill yet."

Taking the peace document, Cavanagh paused, "I certainly will speak with the Minister of Defense about such a hotline and until the Ministry of Defense gets one set up, my office is always open. I believe you, as a high ranking diplomat, have my number. Call that, and I will get any problems ironed out for you."

He signed.

There was peace.
