04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: gl all
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: well met
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Germany, I strongly advise you to attack Austria as soon as possible. He's the real threat to you.
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Ah yes. It is I, the suicidal Austrian menace.
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Natural enemies, Germany and Austria.
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Indeed. The only more natural enemies are England and Turkey. I don't think I've ever seen a game without them coming to blows.
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I mean, deus vult
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I promise to attack the Turk as soon as I am able.
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I renamed it to Constantinople what more do you want
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Ok, you can join NATO now.
04 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Lol, have a good game everyone!
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I do not propose to say many words tonight. The time has come when action rather than speech is required. Eighteen months ago in this House I prayed that the responsibility might not fall upon me to ask this country to accept the awful arbitrament of war. I fear that I may not be able to avoid that responsibility.

But, at any rate, I cannot wish for conditions in which such a burden should fall upon me in which I should feel clearer than I do today as to where my duty lies.

No man can say that the Government could have done more to try to keep open the way for an honorable and equitable settlement of the dispute between England. Nor have we neglected any means of making it crystal clear to the English Government that if they insisted on using force again in the manner in which they had used it in the past we were resolved to oppose them by force.

Now that all the relevant documents are being made public we shall stand at the bar of history knowing that the responsibility for this terrible catastrophe lies on the shoulders of one man, the English Prime Minister, who has not hesitated to plunge the world into misery in order to serve his own senseless ambitions...

Only last night the Danish Ambassador did see the English Foreign Secretary, Anthony Eden. Once again he expressed to him what, indeed, the German Government had already said publicly, that they were willing to negotiate with England about their disputes on an equal basis.

What was the reply of the English Government? The reply was that without another word the English fleets crossed the Danish frontier this morning at dawn. In these circumstances there is only one course open to us.
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Interest = 0
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: The Kaiser speaks the truth, the French people stand at the ready to ensure that the Prime Minister is not able to recognize his vision of world domination!
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Are we sure he wasn't just after some nice Cheese Danishes?
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Fair point
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: That was the single dorkiest thing I've ever seen in my life.
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I was in a game a few months ago that attempted to enforce diplomatic norms (had to declare war before attacking that sort of thing). It failed when someone broke the rules, but that reminded me of that.
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I don't think I need to mention that there "Danes" were already not in control of Denmark. If anything, I just liberated them from German tyranny.
08 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: out of the pot and into the flame
