20 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1903: I want to take this opportunity to voice the emotions I am feeling. I must warn you all, my dear friends, of a menace that stands among us. I dare not say the name of that wretched country, but let it be known that through all attempts of peace and discord from the French people, this villain attacked our sacred land unprovoked and without warning. I ask you, citizens of the world, how you would feel if you spent even a day as a citizen of the assailed French nation. To see the beautiful stretches of Burgundy occupied and our beloved Marseilles threatened leaves us in deep despair. I ask you, great leaders of the future, what would you do in our position? Moreover, what will you do when this enemy rears itself on you? The French people acknowledge the struggle before us, but we shall never surrender. They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom! We invite, no, we urge you, friends of the free world, to join us in this quest against tyranny.

Vive le France et vive le monde!

Sincerely yours,
Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau
20 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Citizens of the World:

Do not fall victim to the poisonous words of the hypocrite France! Only a truly desperate and weak nation would make such false claims. Who is he to stand on his high horse and feign moral superiority, when he himself has invaded a nation unprovoked! How should the citizens of Burgundy and Marseilles feel, he asks us? How do the citizens of Liverpool and Ireland feel! This rhetoric disgusts me, and the nation of Great Britain will not sit idly by while he poisons your relations with treacherous lies and false promises. Muster your troops as you will, and do not let his parasitic invitations steer you towards annihilation.

Rule Britannia!

Sincerely yours,
King Edward VII, By the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of the British Dominions beyond the Seas King, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India
20 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1903: May I remind the world that the English were indeed the first to show hostilities towards the French people by occupying the English Channel. May I remind the world that the English entered the Mid Atlantic Ocean as we entered the Irish Sea out of defense. What are we to do to our attackers if we cannot retaliate in defense? This man and his people are as vile as those invade our homeland. As we speak, the English implement a heinous regime over the kingdom of Spain. The French demand that the Spanish be allowed their freedom through the aid of their French friends. We demand freedom for Belgium and Holland. We will liberate the English citizens oppressed by a corrupt government at home and then we shall liberate the world. You, King Edward, are a tyrant who sails his navies through the tears of his citizens and the tears of his victims. We French beg the world to see our side of this conflict and join us.

G. Clemenceau
20 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Lies! Slander! Who are you to speak on behalf of the Iberian territories? You have as much right to them as anyone on this map! Did the Spanish and the Portuguese come out of their homes, onto the streets of Madrid and Lisbon, and cry out to their Catholic God on their hands and knees, begging for a French overlord? Don't be ridiculous! Never before have I been so appalled by the discourse offered by the French. You speak of the Netherlands as if they are your birthright, and yet not once have your troops even set foot in Holland in these last two years, and Belgium has as much a right to be ruled by a strong power as any other territory on this map. And you, sir, are no strong power. You say I "took" the English channel, but if you had wanted it so bad you should have fought for it! The strong rule wherever they can, and the weak must suffer for it. Your "defensive measures" are nothing more than a wolf in sheep's clothing, a thinly veiled excuse to coerce these other great nations into forgoing their own prospects in order to bend their knee to you. This demonstration has only more cemented to me the necessity to halt all French progress before your ambition and greed become uncontainable. I urge the other nations of Europe to see beyond these falsehoods, and reject his corrupt words.

King Edward
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Need I respond to the pitiful dribble of the foolish English king? The actions of the world speak for themselves. I commend the great czar of Russia for standing up against the forces of evil. Soon our beloved continent will be rid of the strife that plagues it. Soon we will have a return to lasting peace. I welcome the of the world's great leaders, the Sultan of Turkey, the Emperor of Austria, and the King of Italy, to join the French and Russian coalition to save the world.

Sincerely,
G. Clemenceau
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: (Shoutout to independent Albania you go Albania!)
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Not for long.
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Henceforth I will implement the Clemenceau doctrine: any act of hostility towards Albania will be seen as an act against France.
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'd like to see you try to enforce that, sir.
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I have agents everywhere.
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: How do you tax your agents when all they have is Monopoly money, you disheveled and impoverished tyrant-in-exile?
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: The French people are proud they do not need payment for their services
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: That sounds like what a robber would say, I think.
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Takes one to know one
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I've never heard a case of that being true
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: That’s cause you have no friends
21 Sep 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Cause you’re a robber
22 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1904: No one messages me and it hurts my feelings
23 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1904: The great French people officially declare war on Turkey. Let the world be put on notice.

Best,
G. Clemenceau
23 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1904: No one messages you because no one loves you
23 Sep 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Go eat a crumpet you meanie

01 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: To the puny, overreaching clan chiefs of the world who dare besmirch the term “sovereign,”

Let it be announced, a joint and amicable agreement reached between the most honorable and righteous Premier of France and Emperor of Austria:

Whereas most of the past decade has been marked by unmatched conflict, see-sawing geopolitical advantage, and dishonest dealings behind closed doors nullified by dishonest dealings behind closed doors;

Whereas every nation has the right and obligation to determine its own course, provide for the safety and prosperity of its citizenry, and fulfill its divinely-apportioned potential in each of their limited lives;

Whereas the world is plagued by a pathetic dribble of half-assed, incompetent adminstrators, generals, and stragetists who leave disorder and destruction in their wakes;

Let it be declared that the most honorable and righteous Premier of France and Emperor of Austria are steadfast and permanent allies; have proven the strength of their bond in previous cooperative efforts, including but not limited to the swift blitz to liberate Italians from unjust tyranny; equal partners in affairs, foreign and domestic; capable stewards of a continent wracked by war and weary of lies; honest leaders, who announce their intentions and alignments in daylight before all those left alive to bear witness.

Let it also be declared that the most revered highness of England, a throne tested by the fierce forces of time, is cordially invited to join this pact of fellowship and amiability.

In other words,

Y’alls’ asses are screwed we’re workin’ together so deal with it.

Honestly,

The Dynamic Duumvirate
