The USA has seen the Russians (in the war thread) propose a deescalation to pursue negotiations.... we urge the Japanese to use this window of opportunity to end this conflict on their terms

I order the formation of a Special Battle Group within the Pacific Fleet consisting of five battleships, five destroyers, ten cruisers, fifteen frigates, and support ships including mine planters to deploy from San Diego sailing towards Japanese waters

I order two brigades of the US Army to be ready for immediate deployment to the Far East

To Russia-

Your reckless admirals drew first blood and your response was to declare war on Japan. Regardless of the expansion of their navy- they did not start this. Your men did and your government in St. Petersburg chose to escalate it by declaring war.
I am not declaring war at this time....I urge you to consult with your ministers while the option of peace still remains

To the UK- We mourn the death of a dear friend, Lord Salisbury.... congratulations to the new Prime Minister Balfour



Republican Party Politics

I gather several leaders of the Republican Party for a meeting at the Executive Mansion. I call John Hay, Mark Hanna, Truman Newberry, and Robert La Follette- the Governor of Wisconsin who is a leading voice of the Progressives. I explain that we need to maintain an open dialogue and that we need to approach issues as multiple voices within a party, not as separate parties or even factions within a party. By sticking together- we maintain the majority of American’s ideologies under our big tent and we will win elections for a generation.

I explain that one of the benefits of our aggressive foreign policy is economic prosperity…by expanding trade and resources, we expand the American economy. As I have demonstrated- I do not seek colonies on the other side of the world…I have cooperated with our allies such as Japan to ensure lands outside our domain are out of our responsibility. I have indeed worked to master our domain which has added to our national prestige and prosperity.

I pledge that I will give the Progressives the first voice on domestic policy if they pledge not to attempt to reverse any aspects of our foreign policy. To show my seriousness- I offer to nominate La Follette as Secretary of the Treasury and my chief lieutenant for domestic policy.

On the issue of a third term- I am privately announcing to this group that I will not seek a third consecutive term in the tradition of George Washington, which I will announce to the country next turn. I plan to run for a third term if the national climate is right in 1908 however. For 1904- I propose and will support Vice President Hay as a unifying candidate for our party, with Governor La Follette as the Vice Presidential nominee. I also propose that La Follette be the VP nominee in 1908 with my support for the Presidential nomination in 1912 when he will still be a very young man. I propose we agree to these guidelines to ensure a diversity of ideas at the top of the ticket and harmony in our party




Military Orders re: Russo-Japanese War

I order ALL UNITS of the US military to be on high alert and ready to mobilize. I order two battle groups from the Pacific Fleet in San Diego- each consisting of a battleship, destroyer, two cruisers, three frigates, and support ships- to join the Asiatic Task Force in Manila immediately. I order Secretary Taft and Secretary Newberry to begin planning to defend American interests in the area and for other contingency plans


To Russia and Japan-
The USA has signed different alliances with both of your nations. The treaty with Russia is a defensive alliance and the treaty with Japan is more broad. Russia was the nation to declare war on Japan,not vice versa....this fact is indisputable and will be considered as the USA considers its policy. In the meantime, I urge both nations to exercise restraint and stand down. The USA honors its treaties,and it is only a matter of which treaty applies in this case. I urge those in St. Petersburg to take note of this



Cuba Policy

I propose a 99-year lease of Guantanamo Bay in exchange for a removal of US troops from anywhere else on the island



Venezuela

Maintain the blockade. I order the a 5,000 man brigade to be moved with all due haste to our staging area in Guantanamo Bay in the event further force is needed. I urge President Castro to come to the table immediately to resolve this issue and move forward peacefully. In the meantime- I order the planting of mines to commence beginning in Puerto Cabello and extending to other port cities on the coast if the Venezuelan govt does not negotiate



Ottoman Empire

We will provide any assistance to our friends and allies- we are grateful to have them with us

The USA renounces any goals to gain territory in Venezuela... we dispute the findings of the spies and believe they are provocateurs installed by a foreign government- possibly Venezuela itself. We will use our superior naval power to maintain the blockade to force Castro to the negotiating table

1902 Midterms

I send Vice President John Hay to meet with the Republican Congressional leaders to get their input on a domestic agenda- I ask that they be ready to work with me to enact it. While we have been focused on foreign policy, it is time that we begin focusing on our Republican agenda here at home

To the American people- in the past two years,we have undergone national tragedy with the assassination of Vice President Roosevelt. We have pursued alliances and established leadership of our hemisphere. We are building a navy which will secure our homeland from foreign attack for perpetuity. Give my party a majority in our next Congress and you will see what we can do when we concentrate our efforts here at home... We have achieved peace, it is now time to continue the prosperity that our peace has earned us. Our alliances have given us ample opportunity for trade and our navy will secure those channels. Vote Republican in 1902
