23 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: AP wire report just in "Tragedy in Denmark"

On Wed morning, people had already started to gathered in the streets of many cities around Denmark for their annual Autumn festival. In Copenhagen, a noise was herd growing just beyond the hills outside the city, and people naturally rushed towards it expecting a parade or other festivities.

The people of Copenhagen were summarily slaughtered as Russian tanks crested the hills and started firing on the civilians.

Notes of condolences and offers of help started to arrive in Berlin almost immediately.

The German chancellor was not available for comment.
23 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Paris (Reuters):

The president of the French Third Republic appeared today in a joint session of the Parlement Francais, with the French Prime Minister, delivering a fiery and impassioned speech to the nation, carried on the national wireless, impelling every red-blooded Frenchman and every friend of France to unite against the Hunnic menace massing in the north.

"Consider, my fellow sons daughters of the Revolution, the despicable actions of these barbarous Huns in placing civilians - civilians! - in the forefront of their perpetual war with the Russian Empire. Armed with the foreknowledge of Russian aggression in Scandinavia, the Kaiser did not hesitate to put his own people - whom he condescends to call his 'subjects' - scant miles from the Russian war machine. This is evidence further of the dissolute nature of the hidebound German monarchy, benighted as it is with medieval notions of peasant servitude and entitled nobility.

The time is now, to unite under the banner of the Republic and repel this force of darkness that threatens to plunge the Known World into a second Dark Age! Recall the Enlightenment principles that formed our great nation and brought us out of the cruel night of monarchism into the Spring day of liberty, equality, and fraternity! Rise up! Crush the German menace!"

The President's words were met with thunderous applause. The assembly concluded as the President, Prime Minister, and assembled members of parliament crying "Vive la nation! Vive la liberte!"
23 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1907: *wireless cuts to 40-man chorus singing La Marseillaise*
27 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: France and Austria we should concentrate on stopping Russia from growing not attacking each other

27 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: So is England supporting Germany in attack against France?
27 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: England is out of this! England is NOT attacking anyone. Spain is safe.
27 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: trololol
