I did send him a PM vaguely warning him what is on the ups. But no reply. It's been maybe a week since I sent it.

Aaron and I are discussing how it's mildly humorous the UK may have to change it's foreign policy overnight. They're currently fighting to destroy the Ottoman Empire, meanwhile Spain and Prussia want to keep it from falling apart. And unless the UK wants to stay off Spain and Prussia craplist, it better agree to change its stance Posted Image

Spain and Prussia may have to help to make sure the Prime Minister agrees, then. Or help dispose of him, and get England to be an absolute monarchy under Charles. Since helping Greece is basically Brents way of proving Britain's worth after it's been in hell for so long, it's not something he'll let go of so lightly. Charles would be for it, though. Probably negotiate to let himself keep the bit of Greece originally planned, while the Ottomans keep the rest.

Blagh.

I forget, did England give the Armenians support? I remember Feo said that I could use Cyprus, but I think that was OOC.

It was in a PM when you first joined. I offered to help, but you said you figured I would be to far to help at that point... Or something.

And about a month or two after that, I was told England wouldn't have Cyprus anymore, so it's probably a good thing that never happened. XD

It's not a good idea to go against someone's will when that someone is a nation run by crazy opportunists. It's just as bad when that someone is an army with a nation.

So yeah, England can still help you, but they'd be risking political (or worse, armed) conflict with two of the most powerful nations in Europe (and the world in the case of Spain). England's not in shape for that.

England is barely in shape to be helping Greece, and I expect to basically be told by Sotelo and Frederick at the meeting "No, bad England! Either help us, or go back to your island!"

England, AKA: the corner.

Also, I got an email from Temple University. Is it a good school?

There's three things England can do.

1) Help Spain and Prussia keep the Ottoman Empire from falling apart. To do this, England would have to discontinue their support of rebels in Greece and somehow attempt to undo whatever they've done up to this point. This would please Spain and Prussia, but admittedly it'd not only be strange to say the least, but also a massive waste of money and lives for England. You'd pretty much be giving up on everything your soldiers spilled blood for and be spending even more money on somehow undoing your own work.

2) Tell Spain and Prussia to go to hell. This will likely earn you political tension with both (at the very least). And I wouldn't be surprised if it caused Spain to pretty much storm into Greece and kick your forces out by force. Once that happened it'd be the calm before the storm, 'cause once Spain's dealt with the Ottoman situation, they'd probably come for you next, somehow. Or, at the very least, you'd forever be at crappy terms with Spain and Prussia.

3) Remain neutral. The way to do this would be to withdraw your forces from Greece and go home. Your efforts there would have been all for naught, but you'd be spared of the possible asswhooping Spain would have given you if you flat out refused to be cooperative.

Announcing neutrality would probably    off the Greeks in the same way it would if you turned on them and supported the Turks.

In the west, about the most important thing happening right now is that Spain, Prussia (and possibly others) are preparing to have talks regarding the condition of the Ottoman Empire (collapsing). There are Spanish and Prussian interests within the Ottoman Empire that both parties believe are better safeguarded by a stable, strong Ottoman Empire, and so they both agree they have to prevent the collapse of the Empire otherwise it gets ripped apart by potentially dozens of rebellions and suddenly our interests are riddled with obstacles calling themselves nations.

This more than likely will lead to Spanish and Prussian intervention, which can in turn lead to war against numerous rebel factions, newly-formed Armenia, and Poland.
