Upon study of recent events

The way society is structured today, it is difficult to understand Colonialism for what it truly was. For example, A Stranger walks into a house and claims it is his, while he enslaves the real owners and demands they follow his rules. It might seem like an unlikely scenario, but many believe it to still be happening today. It is almost a given now that most everyone considers colonialism is a mistake, no question about it, but the real question is why people continue to portray themselves in a negative light that is the creation of a colony. The answer is simple, growth. The power to have one’s name sprawled across a map is a dream for many rulers. The natives are simply going to be happy either way, because once they are under a flag, they give instant patriotism!

Colonialism includes the spreading of one’s own ideas, culture, and religion. Whether or not they thought they would have a positive effect on colonized native countries does not matter. If they are spreading their own culture, in a place that does not share that same culture, it should be considered a colony, yes? Of course! We all state that we are there to help, but honestly, in reality, there are plenty of reasons why we are there. Money, Strategic location, or any of the other same old reasons.

Yet, in our time, we have seen the Rebel Army Ecuador remain at peace because the natives there are happy with their rulers. Yet, time and time again, we have seen it questioned. The only reason action hasn’t been taken by the locals? It wouldn’t be in their best interest to lose thousands upon thousands of men for a tad bit of land. The only thing that stands in the way of those from a far away land enjoying the spoils of your fallen neighbor is if you and the rest of the block is going to pronounce the old saying, “Not in my backyard.”

Good intentions aside, there is no reason for any of us to claim land for an unselfish purpose. Those good intentions to protect from invaders, remove anarchy, establish order till another force comes along are useless if it is overshadowed by the fact you have invaded, established yourself, and have added it to your massing blob of a nation on the map.

In recent events, Louisiana is being told “Not in my backyard” by Scotland for their recent development of a military base on the Iberian Peninsula. For what purpose? Does he believe he’ll better serve the people there then the Americans? Half of the Iberian Peninsula is now culturally Scottish because of their occupation. Yes, Spain is Scottish, and Scots are telling Louisiana to get out for taking some land from Spain legally for occupying Scottish people. Does it matter who rules these Sco..Span…Spontish? If Scots decide to attack, are they ready to destroy the Spontish homeland?

Let us also know when the anti colonists come out charging about how wrong it is, and when they have their guns a-blazing, someone point them to Antarctica, as there about a dozen targets for them to hit…including us.

To end our discussion, I simply have to say that whether you are half a world apart, or around the bloc, if you are there to help the people, and they are happy with your decision, then there is no reason to question it. You would both be there for your own gain anyway, and if you going to fight over it, isn’t that defeating the purpose in the first place? Its childish, and the fact that you are willing to sacrifice people for the land that isnt yours in the first place makes me question if the people under you are even happy

Grow up, you’re in charge of a country.

Peace be with you,

Ava Jones,

Queen of Acca Dacca.

But if they are there to help the people, why is there a military base?

Preparing for conflict helps the people somehow? I doubt it.

A good way to solve this would be to make the whole territory there Demilitarized indefinitely. If Louisiana does not agree, it is because it needs the territory for warfare, and if Scotland does not agree, it is because of a grudge against Louisiana, as simple as that.

Wise words, however, this 'military base' everyone keeps arguing about in Iberia is also a diplomatic enclave. For all we know, the base is merely protective measures for Louisianian diplomatic staff, much like a National Embassy.

With the recent actions of the Scottish, it seems that such measures had to be undertaken.

"Then why do they need such a large area of land for diplomacy? Are embassies not good enough for Louisiana?"

"Just a police force would do to protect it...you don't need a full fledged base."

With the benefit of hindsight, you would be correct. But now? The future is uncertain. Scotland's actions have made it abundantly clear that Louisiana will need to protect its assets abroad from conventional attacks. Its funny, it's as if the Scots know something about that base that we are not privy to... seems that Louisiana and Scotland have had no prior contact with each other...

Perhaps Scottish intelligence agencies have knowledge that should be divulged to the World Community at large?

"Says the nation that threatened war over a chunk of Antarctica."

The Slavic Union lied to us stating they would be removing the government of our ally, Soviet Russia, the new Antarctican country. Our ally attacked first, thus we were hesitant to give aid as only shared an MDP. Now, Soviet Russia is dismembered, annexed, and considered apart of the Slavic Union. Before all of this, we recently gave land to Soviet Russia on Antarctica, and the fact that we were lied to so that it became colonised land is not what we wanted. We would have defended our ally to the death if we knew they were going to be destroyed. Now, we have taken the land back, and a prospective government is being considered to take the Soviet Russians place.

The Spainish people could have easily taken care of the people now under Louisiana jurisdiction, but as I have stated it for strategic purposes. I dont see how the people now under Louisiana jurisdiction are going to suffer. They are a civil nation. Demilitarizing it would be foolish as that effects only one side of this whole mess.

"Well, if somebody would attack the territory, they'd be violating the DMZ. If that happens, Louisiana would be entitled to defend it during the war. Furthermore, third parties can act as "DMZ protection warranties" in order to prevent issues."

But its thier territory, that they legally occupied. Why on earth would we dictate thier policies?

So you didn't defend your ally, they lost, and then you threaten war against a nation that defended itself from aggression so you can take the land for yourself and put in a government that will return the land to you if they ever fall, essentially making the land your colony on foreign soil, and are willing to invade another country to do this.

Grow up, you’re in charge of a country.

"They didn't defend their ally because their ally was the aggressor. The nation defending itself from aggression in turn colonized the attacking nation, when they had said they would not. Is that clear enough?"

Although she was currently building her plans for "Cyneriice Northan's Future Moments of Awesome", as well as getting used to being the country's new ruler, Alysandra had this to say:

"I don't see what all the fuss is about. Louisiana builds a base in Europe, so what? This anti-North Americanist and anti-Europist stuff's gotta stop. I agree that, okay, maybe a base is a little much - but maybe that's just me inner hippie. All in all, it shouldn't matter where someone settles, or what continent/country/planet/solar system/etc. they're from; if they take it legally, and if the regular people have no qualms, leave 'em alone. It's worked for Cyneriice Northan."

Perhaps it is you who needs to grow up and realize you are in charge of a country. You are threatening war over a installation that was granted by the local sovereign's power. The base's intentions may be trivial and we understand this, but to immediately demand instant terms and expect them to be accepted is childish.

Perhaps it is you who needs to understand that soldiers aren't some pixelated cybermen in some video game that you can click a single button and have them do your bidding. No, they are real live people, and you are supporting their aimless deaths because you can't proceed past the toddler stage of life. Playground politics seems to tickle your fancy, but the rest of the world doesn't.

You sir, are the one who needs tor grow up.

How feeble minded...its almost cute.

We didnt defend a mutual defense pact partner because they attacked and acted first. We were promised by the opposing party that thier involvement would involve the removal of government, NOT the fact that our ally would be over run, and made into a colony for thier gain. We didnt stay neutral to watch our allies people, who we have put under thier legislature, fall under such a despicable government. So, for the people, our former allies people, and even our former people, we asked for them to POLITELY give up the land. No threat was made.

However, you are right. We wished for the people to be under different rule. We wanted it to be that of a local or regional government. That is why we gave it to Soviet Russia in the first place.

Would you like a try? You have a talent for bringing rather efficient people to the international community.

How about to avoid a large scale war? Good enough if you ask me.

Over time, if Louisiana is reasonable, I'm certain that a day would come in which DMZ would not be needed anymore.

This is where our opinions differ. I dont believe that Louisiana should have to work for thier rights on lands that they legally obtained.

Our cause is just. If we do not stop imperalism today, then it will continue to spread until all of Europe is divided into foreign sections and there is no more real European culture.

Stop your pathetic propaganda. The situation is NOT about colonization, as a legal land transaction is in no way colonization especially when no inhabitants have been abused by Louisiana. If you're going to stick with Scotland, man up and just admit you're supporting an aggressive war based on suspicion and nothing more.
