The United States of China upped the ante by testing a thermo-nuclear weapon, announcing six new cruiser-class warships, and unveiling two new nuclear aircraft carriers. All three nations have asserted anti-first-strike policies, claiming the weapons are purely for defensive purposes. The tests come amid announcements from all three nations concerning new diplomatic agreements, specifically with each other. The USA, USC, and Greater Dalmatia all signed mutual defensive pacts with each other, forming a new power bloc that spans three continents. Many international figures have accused the three nations of "jumping into bed with each other," but political pundits have been quick to point out how "stupid such an accusation is." [quote]"We live in a world where alliances change daily, and the select nations' outrage that three nations came together to form an alliance is only politically motivated, like everything else on this planet. Said nations will probably predictably align themselves against the new power-structure, and we'll end up with a shooting war yet again."[/quote] [b]United States Issues Ultimatum to Tahoe Republic[/b] WASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States of America, amid its nuclear test and diplomatic blitz, has issued an Ultimatum to the Tahoe Republic to relinquish "the states of Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri" to United States control. The USA has cited Tahoe's ongoing war and apparent inability to provide protection as reasons for why it is demanding the territory, and it is claiming that the USA has a blood-right to the territory, pointing back to the original United States of America, which the current claims to be the successor state. [quote]"You have in your protection the states of Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. We hereby demand their release to the United States. Their citizens are full citizens of the United States by blood right and not the secondary citizens of a protectorate of your republic. Additionally, you no longer have the resources and assets given the scale of the war you are involved in to adequately protect, defend, and serve the people of these states."[/quote] Many abroad have criticized this action as "blatant imperialism." Carthage, in particular, had mixed comments about the situation, saying that "The Carthaginian government supports the general thought behind the American declaration, but not the real meaning: imperialism. To be clear, we do support imperialism, just not when it is hushed from the world." It is not the only dissenter; the United States of China has announced support for its new ally in North America. The nation of Distopya has called for Tahoe to hold referendums in the territory to see if the "states" want to join the Union. The Republic of York was also extremely vocal against the USA's actions, saying "We find it ironic that the United States claims Tahoe can no longer care for these protectorate states when it is because of an invasion of many nations, including those who emigrated to these new United States in the Dragon Cult, that they are in this position to begin with. Not only does this situation reek of blatant opportunism, but also blatant imperialism." To this, the USA responded "Propaganda from a Media Empire. Who would have guessed?" It remains to be seen how the situation will be resolved; RABN will remain with the story until its conclusion. [b]People's Republic Recalls Troops[/b] Beijing - The People's Republic of China has announced that it plans on reducing deployment numbers from 350,000 troops to 100,000 troops by the year 2025. The PRC has stated that the reason for such high deployment was national security, and with "no threat," government officials have decided the time has come to cut the numbers. [quote]"The PLA has been a strong pillar in PRC history but to move forward the Premier decided it would be best to lay off troops. The government also is in discussion for decommissioning Nuclear Weapons as well."[/quote] The government has decided to demilitarize to allow trade and commerce flourish in China instead of "the constant fear of the military." [b]Also in the news:[/b] [b]The Commonwealth of Texas has petitioned for entry into the United States of America.[/b] [b]The nations of J Andres and Australia have signed a Mutual Defense Pact.[/b] The treaty reactivates a pact originally signed in 2009 between the two nations.
