OOC note: P&W doesn't like to let me type on mobile and I wrote this between 2 and 3am, so my apologies for the bad bulletin.

 

On July 28, the Lunar Congress declared war on New Bermudas, activating the defensive clause of the protectorate treaty between Luna and the Republic of Greenland. This follows threats made by the leader of New Bermudas towards the RoG, a close ally to the Lunar Republic, and the RoG's following attack.

Although neutrality and pacifism have been an integral part of the nation's foreign and diplomatic policy and this will continue to be the case, according to Secretary of Defence Elias Anselm, attacks on allied nations are a cause for immediate intervention.

"We don't intend to give up our pacifist stance as some would prefer us doing," Anselm said in a July 29 interview. "But when our allies and friends need help, we'll be ready to step in and give all the support we can."

Despite this, there has been some opposition to war involvement from citizens. Some feel that this war could be considered offensive taking into consideration that the RoG officially made the first military strike, therefore invalidating the defence clause in this case, while others find war involvement too risky in an era of peace for the Lunar Republic.

"Defending allies sounds good and honorable in theory, but when you put it into practice it's just the same as any other war: violence and bloodshed and Lunar lives lost," Anton Vitale, a resident of New Slovokanosia and a prominent anti-war activist, said. "Isolationism is the best policy for our nation. Our safety should come first."

President Aurelia Aquila issued an official statement on Lunar involvement in the war in a press conference soon after the declaration, clarifying the validity of the war reason and explaining the situation.

"We are a nation of peace and safety for all, but attacks on our friends and allies will not be tolerated by any means," Aquila said. "War is a terrible thing, but in this day and age there are times when it is unavoidable and necessary."

Lunar military actions thus far have primarily been kept to naval movements, with the Second Naval Fleet traveling towards New Bermudas' coast to establish a naval blockade. However, the Army and Air Force have mobilized and are prepared in case of an attack on the mainland or other situation warranting greater force.

You can't just void a declaration of war. Try again.
