01 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: The annals of history shall mark this day as the beginning of the end for the Russian Empire
01 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Only the dead have seen the end of war
01 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: If you mean to count me prematurely among the casualties of this Great War, let me remind you of the wisdom of a bygone world: What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger.
01 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Stand and fight against this Russian aggressor, for we shall see who holds the favor of the Fates. And should we be damned, let the history books mark the valor of the powers who stood against treacherous villainy. Your people, weak as they are, will know your evils, and Minos in his hall shall condemn you to Tartarus where your memory shall flicker out of this world like an ember gasping for air as the fire whimpers, yearning for anyone to notice.
01 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: go off king
01 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: From the desk of the prime minister:

Good afternoon, brother countries. I write to you on this most historic day while German David has stood against Russian Goliath to assume our role in the story. Through years of unreciprocated amicability, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, along with all of her principalities, henceforth proclaims a declaration of NO CONFIDENCE towards the French Republic. However, let my brothers know that this development brings Her Majesty great sorrow. Despite the efforts of British High Command to coexist peacefully with our French neighbors, they have subjected our people to a fate far worse than open war: attrition. Blockading the the English Channel has left the people of London in disarray for far too long. Thus, with no other resort, British forces have seized the Channel in defense. Now, we vow to secure the French coastal city of Brest to administer justice to recompense the stress that the French have subjected us to. I encourage all of my brothers to exhibit caution towards this hostile nation.

Best,
David Lloyd George
01 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: From the desk of his royal and splendid majesty Tsar Alexander I, Grand Duke of Finland, King of Poland, and Emperor of All Russia:

The weak nations of the world slander the name of good and holy Russia in their weak worldly ambitions. They seek the domination of humankind and not its liberation; they seek plunder and treasure and glory; they seek the slaughter of sons and daughters to spread a little more of some meaningless color on some map.

Holy Russia, the chosen nation from among the many, cannot stand idly by while innocent blood is spilt on the soil of the world. Tyrants by birth and by vote alike call her foul names and nasty epithets -- they are no matter.

Like the Israelites chosen from among the nations, so are the good people of Russia, who carry alone the torch of civilization into a dark and uncertain age, destined for ultimate and final redemption. Third Rome, in her majesty and might, shall bring liberty, order, and purpose to the peoples of the world, all subject to its many infantile tyrants. They are mere petulant children who besmirch the chosen people of its anointed role in this fleeting earthly world.

As with the Mongols and tyrannical Napoleon in generations past, holy Russia will turn back the assaults of its foes. The negligent Sultan who once ruled Turkey already fled the palace in Constantinople in disgusting cowardice. The good citizens of Constantinople now enjoy just and holy rule, as will the rest of the continent in due time.

To those nations of the world who spoke harshly of holy Russia in your humanly anger and passion -- you may be forgiven. Accept just and holy rule of all Russia and you will be protected, supported, and loved as our family is.

Those nations of the world who defile, defy, slander, slaughter, and resist -- your fate is written already.

"Behold they say: 'Our bones have become dried up, our hope is lost, we are clean cut off to ourselves.'"
