We are pleased to see the end of hostilities in the Iberian Peninsula, and certainly with the removal of the Louisianan military base we feel that peace and stability will remain in Europe.

We wish to thank all of our allies for their unwavering support during the war (in no particular order):

Valencia

Finland

RSSN

Kyvian Rus

Euzkadi

Slavic Union

Conti

Slavorussia

Tahoe

Taeunas

Deutschland

France

Norway

Without the friendship and continued support of all of you, we do not believe this momentous occasion could have been made possible. The leaders from each of the above named nations have been invited to Edinburgh for celebration.

Further more to the nations who declared their support in favour of Louisiana, our relations have been badly damaged by this military encounter. We do hope that relations can be mended, but only time will tell.

-King Douglas

"There would never have been any hostilities if not for the hostile attitudes of the participants. Since those participants still exist, hostilities haven't really ended, just subsided until another fully preventable war comes along."

A letter was sent to Scotland and the other members of the Scottish Coalition,

War is not something that should be celebrated, thus, I will not be attending the conference unless it is to discuss other matters, though we will be giving the troops a warm welcome home for their limited part in stopping imperialism. I am actually glad this ended with little bloodshed, though flags will be flown half-mast to mourn for the lost sailors and airmen of our allies. Long live a free Europe.

Signed,

Germany would arrive, after having had bad relations with Scotland, now that things were good, they would not go out of their way to ruin it. It was a good thing that war had not been declared, however...that would only have done if Germany had really been badly needed, and that would have implied that more would have died already.

The Federal Union of Slavic Republics congratulates its allies on a successful campaign. Furthermore, flags will be flown at half-mast to honor the 24 airmen who gave their lives for their nation, as well as those servicemen from all countries that paid the ultimate price.

Tanya Dziaheliva, Prime Minister of the Federal Union, will attend proceedings in Edinburgh, although she believes that there should be a discussion on how to avoid such a war in the future, by preventing foreign influence in Europe in the first place.

"Why is everybody so upset? This COULD have gotten MUCH worse...we should be celebrating that, in fact, it did not."

"In celebrating such, it could be seen as belittling the sacrifice of those who DID pay the price."

It is unfortunate you see it that way, as this celebration of brotherhood is anything but belittlement. We are proud that Europe stood together against an invading foreign power that sought to establish an unnecessary military presence on our doorstep. For that, we feel the sacrifices of those who paid for this with their lives should be honoured.

"Yes, honored, and remembered, but not celebrated. It is never a happy circumstance when so many lives are lost, especially when it could have all been avoided."

"What an idiotic statement. You should be lamenting the fact that it turned into armed conflict at all.

Scotland helped escalate the situation, trying to make a celebration of the fact that it didn't escalate further is quite stupid."

"The only idiotic thing is for the leaders and officers of a nation to speak with such foul language. It happens all too often, and this shows the state of the world. If any you should understand the fact that blaming this on Scotland alone is childish, there were simply too many nations involved in this to place the blame only on them. Even the one who settled on the continent is partly to be blamed, because, after all, many nations such as my own, instead of hurling insults, actually tried to get the two nations to come to some agreement, and both were stubborn. Or would you prefer warfare to continue? For I assure you, there'd certainly be less and less to celebrate if it'd have gone on for a few more weeks."

Many of the countries of Europe are celebrating the defeat of a foreign foe, and at the same time honoring those people who gave their lives to achieve that goal. The situation could have been handled differently, but Scotland shouldn’t be shouldering all the blame.

"The only idiotic thing is for the leaders and officers of a nation to speak with such foul language. It happens all too often, and this shows the state of the world."

"Then what language should be used to describe such foolishness? It seems that you expect professional conduct from a national government. What conduct did Scotland and Louisiana show by forgoing diplomatic channels until after military forces had been committed, men died, equipment was destroyed? Strong language is not the problem in this world, the problem is that there are people with positions of authority that tolerate and encourage aggressive, undiplomatic 'my way or the highway' attitudes on a national level. The problem is the lack of foresight and the pure bullheadedness demonstrated by nations such as Scotland and Louisiana."

If any you should understand the fact that blaming this on Scotland alone is childish, there were simply too many nations involved in this to place the blame only on them. Even the one who settled on the continent is partly to be blamed[...]

"Your assumption is false, the government of Arctica holds that regardless of the debatable 'initial responsibility', both parties are equally at fault for such a grievous and egregious breach of internationally accepted standards of proper diplomatic conduct. Scotland issued the ultimatum, Louisiana ignored it, and the two nations set the stage for a completely needless war."

...because, after all, many nations such as my own, instead of hurling insults, actually tried to get the two nations to come to some agreement, and both were stubborn. Or would you prefer warfare to continue? For I assure you, there'd certainly be less and less to celebrate if it'd have gone on for a few more weeks."

"As it stands, there is nothing to celebrate. Arctica fully explained the situation to all involved and explained the consequences and implications of further aggressive, undiplomatic conduct. The war was pointless, fully preventable, and it is idiotic to celebrate the fact that it is over or that it didn't get worse.

Any questions?"
