21 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Приветствую, товарищи.
22 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Italy has great relationships with nearly all nations in the international community and will of course honor all agreements made with our bordering countries. On many occasions Italy has extended an offer of cooperation to Austria, only to have these offers sneezed at and/or ignored. Please understand, Italy will not accept silence as agreement from any nation. Accordingly, Austria may consider this a formal declaration of war and should prepare itself to contend with the full force of the Italian military and all our allies form the north.
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Russia denounces the vile and aggressive declaration from Italy. Let it be know that all enemies of Austria will be dealt with harshly and swiftly with the full might of the Russian government.
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy looks forward to breaking lances with Russia on a battlefield once known as Austria.
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: The guy playing Italy must have a lot of free time if this is how he reacts to people who don't respond immediately lol
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy in my chat:

~08:59 PM Spring, 1901: I hope you understand, Italy must make a move for Greece in order to establish a supply center in this region. If Austria can support my effort to Greece and Serbia, we can consider a joint invasion into Turkey in the future.
~04:57 AM Spring, 1901: Can Turkey count on cooperation with Austria to achieve even division of the currently unoccupied territory between our two countries?

~08:22 AM Spring, 1901: Can Turkey count on cooperation with Austria to achieve even division of the currently unoccupied territory between our two countries?
~08:22 AM Spring, 1901: Please understand Italy takes it as an act of aggression when our diplomatic efforts for cooperation with a neighboring country are left unanswered.
~09:30 AM Spring, 1901: In addition to my Global statement. Please take this time to resend any and all orders into the Adriana Sea.

For context, I just logged on to see all of these lol
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well there goes Italy's alliance with Turkey...
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: CAN'T WE ALL JUST BE FRIENDS?! COME HAVE POTATOES WITH ME
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy never had an alliance with Turkey, though we were and still are open to coordinating for cooperative interests (different than an alliance). Italy looks forward to working with Turkey in an amicable manner in future military campaigns.
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: May I remind the international community that, when Italy extends olive branches in the above manner (to Turkey in this case), silence as a response is not received well by the Italian people, will be considered and act of aggression, and Italy will take appropriate measures to defend our sovereignty from the threat.
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: #FranceForWorldPeace
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Turkey would like this opportunity to publicly denounce Italy as a global threat. Through thr actions of conspiring to conduct acts of warfare, betray neighbouring countries and threats of violence on multiple fronts. I request allistance from all those whom have an interest in peace to help remove this terror from existence.
22 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy is and never has been involved in "terror". We simply took action to defend our sovereignty against those who threatened us. We have never "betrayed" a neighboring country (or any country). On the contrary, we issued a formal declaration of war (as civilized nations do) PRIOR to invading Austria. Italy has and always will stand by the commitments to peace we have made with our friends in the international community. As a demonstration of our commitment to peace and good will, we will forgive the false, rude, and slanderous accusations from Turkey and instead offer yet again an opportunity to make peace with Italy and our allies.
23 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Turkey would like to remind Italy that 'words are wind' when there are fleets advancing toward nation. This action shall be taken as aggressive unless otherwise specified
23 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: don't make me come down there you two
23 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: I WILL turn this car around!
23 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy has never made any aggressive action toward Turkey. On the contrary, Turkey officials will recall discussing their desire for Italy to remain out of the Aegean Sea, to which Turkey agreed.
23 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Requesting support to move toward Greece (unoccupied territory) in order to establish a supply center was never intended to be construed as an act of aggression. An "act of aggression" from Italy is preceded by a formal declaration of war as Austria can attest to, and no declaration of war is issued lightly from the Italian government I can assure you.
24 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: It is insane how a gullible Germany just caused a massive clusterfuck lol
24 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Hahahah
24 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Lol
24 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Hahahah
25 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Is Germany "gullible" or do they simply prefer to work with Statesmen instead of the inexperienced and incompetent stand-ins currently attempting (poorly) to represent Austria?
25 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1902: As always the Italian government is committed to peach through strength and is please to announce there will soon be peace again in the region currently known as Austria (soon to formerly be known as Austria), as the Austrian government will soon be surrendering to the Italian forces who masterfully coordinated a successful campaign with the help of other civilized nations in the region. Austria is already aware of the status of their army at Tyrolia who is now isolated from Austrian support as a result of Austria's most recent military blunder. The army at Tyrolia has been captured by Italian forces and will be treated humanly as prisoners of war until disbanded by the Austrian government at which time the former Austrian military personnel at Tyrolia will be allowed to peacefully return to their homes after signing a commitment to never take up arms again.

Additionally, the Italian government is pleased to announce terms of surrender to the government of Austria. These terms are not negotiable as this will be an unconditional surrender. Here are the terms:
1. Austria will disband all military units and will never take up arms again against Italy or it's allies.
2. Austria will allow the Italian military to occupy Trieste this Spring.
3. Austria will refrain from making public statements in the global form, as past attempts of Austrian hummer did not go over well with the international community.

Violation of any of the above terms of surrender will result in the complete destruction of any remaining Austrian military equipment and the end of all Austrian military personnel as no quarter will be given to any Austrian who refuses to permanently lay down his arms. It should also be noted that if Austria violates point number 3 in their terms of surrender, any nation who makes a public statement in their support or laughs at a poor attempt at a joke by Austria will not remain in good standing with the Italian government. Italy dose not appreciate disrespectful comments about upstanding nations like Germany who have always conducted their international affairs with the upmost dignity. Germany is a long standing friend of Italy and we consider ourselves fortunate to be in their favor as their navy has recently demonstrated unmatched power on the high seas and their State Department incredible skill and coordination with countries in their region.
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: "committed to peach"
26 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: He is committed to Georgia Peaches. Russia owns Georgia.....I think this is a clear connection
26 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I guess this is what happens when I write foreign policy while eating a peach? Maybe I was subconsciously thinking about how I would eat Austria? Whatever the case, I see no problem standing buy this commitment. Fortunately it's better than being committed to not making it to 1903 as Austria is apparently committed to.
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Venice smells as bad as you think it would.
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Explains why this buffoon wanted to move to the glorious jewel that is Vienna and sample our sausage.
01 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: Austria is hardly in a position to comment on the state of Vienna as it has been occupied by Italy longer than it was by her original government. As for Venice, we are all aware it must indeed smell quite bad after the Austrian prisoners held in Tyrolia escaped having now found their way to Venice. Italy wishes to apologize to the international community for allowing these prisoners to escape and cause a nascence. If Austria complied with the generous terms of surrender offered by Italy, then the Austrian army would already have returned peacefully to their homes, instead they were forced to remain imprisoned for longer than planned and unfortunately experienced an outbreak of dysentery throughout the prison camp. In an effort to prevent the spread of this misfortune to the guards, the camp was abandoned by all security leading to the escape of the sickly prisoners. Italy accepts responsibility for these diseased stricken escaped prisoners and is committed to disposing of their bodies properly when they inevitably die of exposure. It saddens the Italian government to prepare letters to the families of this Austrian army so woefully abused by their arrogant military leader that they will no longer be afforded a peaceful return to their homeland.
03 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1905: It's truly exciting hosting such a diversity of nations on the peninsula of Italy, and we would like to thank all those nations who partook in the festivities resulting in this wonderful melting pot of cultures. We are proud to say we are now the world capital for tourism. Please exercise caution when out and about touring the sights and always heed the warning sirens notifying the public of incoming naval gun fire.
