zzzptm Posted May 20, 2010 Report Share Posted May 20, 2010 We of Himynamistan are part of Nueva Vida, and we cherish our relationship within that alliance. We have fought for them and our people have sacrificed for them. Hoka hey, it is always a good day in Nueva Vida. As a member of that alliance, we are protected by them. If we in Himynamistan are ever attacked, Nueva Vida will find our attackers and show them our horses of war. Now, there are other alliances that Nueva Vida will ride to protect. We have formal treaties with some, and we have informal agreements with others. But whether by treaty or by agreement as friends, we extend our protection to them. We do not dangle our friends as bait to draw attacks: Huitzilopochtli would expose us to the wrath of Tezcatlipoca were we to be dishonorable like that. No, we protect who we say we will protect. If anyone lies about being in Nueva Vida or being protected by Nueva Vida, he is one with Tezcatlipoca, the Enemy of Both Sides, to us. Ask us about that nation, and we'll let anyone know if he's truly under our protection or not. But to attack without asking? That is like saying to our faces that our word has no meaning to you. That is like saying to our faces that our honor is nothing to you. Or am I in error on that? I don't think so. There are other alliances with so-called paperless relationships, but ours are clear to see. Who we say we shall protect is our business, but we shall protect who we say we shall protect. Wankan Tanka, we are slow to anger. Quetzalcoatl taught us to be slow to anger, but he did not teach us to never anger. It is easy to contact alliance leaders to resolve existing conflicts: how much easier are things to resolve when one contacts an alliance leader even before fighting begins? The burden of proof is upon the aggressor, is it not? We are Nueva Vida. Our word has had meaning in the hearts and minds of men here on Planeta Roberto for years. Our word meant so much, we were attacked by Ragnarok, Poison Clan, MHA, and IRON in the NoCB War because they knew we would fight for our allies in Polaris. Look! Go see! We bled for that honor and thereby earned it. We paid for the value of our word and can say it as we mean it. If Nueva Vida speaks a word of protection for another nation, so it is spoken from the Hummingbird Throne, words from the gods themselves, and who are we to argue with the gods? So says Zzzptm Nezahualcoyotl, First Speaker of the Congress of Himynamistan. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
